Model T Shop Mule Tractor

Shop Mule Tractors like this 1940s model were used in factories, industrial facilities, and railways to haul heavy cargo in confined spaces. Ford Motor Co. used and sold Model T-based Mules. Anyone ever come across a surviving one? I'm working on a story about them and would love a photo of an existing or even a recreated one. Please let me know if you can help.

Thanks!

Aleesa, I did a quick google search for "Vintage shop mule or tug/ tractor" and came up with this. I just went to the pics that they featured and looked for one that looked like it could be a T. If I just put in "shop mule" they wanted to sell me shoes, just gotta know how to phrase things. Jim

Thanks, a couple of those are definitely along the right line. Might even be a lead for a preserved one.
