Dual Transmission

Here's an interesting discovery:

This particular truck has two transmissions. There's the original, factory-installed Model T transmission up front (on the left, in this photo). Behind it is an aftermarket add-on - "Jumbo Giant for Ford" - which, combined with the original transmission, should have given this truck seven forward gears and three reverse gears. But, because the reverse pedal is missing on this truck (the hole for the shaft in the original transmission was plugged in a typical use-whatever-you-have way: a chunk of wood driven into it), it actually only has two reverse gears.
