This resource would not have been possible without the help of countless folks throughout the Internet. Not just T owners, but mechanical sites and others as well. I found it only fair to give credit where credit is due. If I left out specific names I apologize in advance, it’s mostly done for brevity of the document. Please let me know if you desire credit in the future and I will endeavor to add you in any revised printing.

She has the Universal transmission, Bennett brakes, a King waterpump, anti-rattlers on the front, and APCo tie rod and radius rod caps. All of the accessories were installed long ago.

I also have a 1925 with the factory cab and bed. I need the stakes for the bed if anyone has any for sale. I don't have my 27 on my web site but the 25 is. I have a 1925 1 ton TT truck with factory made (not Ford) hubcaps with the grease fittings made on the hubcap. The zerk fitting is recessed so it will not get knocked off. Works great! http://mypage.goplay.com/modelt/ Possible other address: email@example.com@smart.netEd Jeff Miller, Bel Air, MD. Assembling a ‘26 TT . Last year, my brother Jeff and I purchased a rough but restorable '26 closed cab "TT", sans bed, for restoration. After a slow start, we are making some progress. Unfortunately the rear of the cab was rusted out. We opted to sell the doors (very restorable), chop the cab at the cowl/windshield line, saving this section for rebuild, and junk the rest. We have started building a wooden new wooden cab with doors and windows to meld with the steel cowl and windshield. An express bed will follow. Please visit our WEB site
http://www.smart.net/~ebmiller/ and take a look at the truck.

firstname.lastname@example.org Kurt File, Louisville 25 TT stake bed. It has been in the family for at least the last 35 years. When I was 14 my grandfather asked me if I wanted the old truck that had been in the backyard since I was born. It didn't take long to let him know. YES. About 9 years later he had it about 65% restored (it was in real rough shape from years in the back yard) all the parts were there (more or less). I picked it up about 3 years later. Froze tighter than a drum. I got the truck running, but didn't have time to finish it. Last year I was entered into the Nationals held here in Louisville, KY. The Nationals are for vehicles at least 50 years old or older, and 99% are Hot Rods. I thought that an original would be fun. And it was a blast. I had more looks and stares with my truck than most of the Hot Rods. There is even a picture of it in the January 2000 issue of America Rodder magazine. After the show I started to really enjoy this truck. We go for rides 2-3X per week, but never very far because it's not licensed.
email@example.com Bill B., beautiful downtown Lebanon (Ohio?) I got a beauty. It was voted best of show at the prestigious Mystic Seaport Museaum transportation show last summer.

Herb Iffrig, St. Peters, Mo., I have A 1918 Model TT Hucksters Truck. I've Had it since 1974. I got it right after highschool. It took years to get it running. I remember my dad thought I was crazy to mess with something that. But years later when we were going to a parade he liked to set up front. It's been fun using it in parades and weddings. It's not a show grade vehicle. But it is one where a truck load of kids can have a good time. It's got an original body on it. I've seen one other like it on a horse drawn wagon. When I got this one it had a wind shield and doors so I know it was really a truck. We really get the TT experience as it has solid rubber rear tires. I also have a start on a 1926 TT flatbed with a TT Ruckstell rear. Not much of a cab though. I have a TT era fuel tanker body I need another truck to put under. Model T's are fun.
email@example.com Bob M. Plain City, Ohio, 26 with the steel cab TT has a Jumbo 3 speed transmission with reverse. The overdrive let's you roll on the road, but just don't miss a gear shifting or you lose your brakes. If I drove it much, it would have a set of Rocky Mountain external brakes. I can't find a serial number on the engine so I assume the engine has been replaced at some time. I know the son of the first owner and I bought it from the third owner. I don't know that it has ever been over 20 miles from Plain City where the Chapman Ford agency sold it. They are still in business but at a new location ten miles away.
firstname.lastname@example.org 23 & 25 TT owner. Just starting resto, has WARFORD overdrive.
email@example.com Gary DeRoehn, Mexico, Maine, I restored a 1923 Model TT about 3 years ago now. It took 2 years to restore. It has a 2-speed Ruckstell. The cab and box were made out of ash. It originally was owned by Alden Ice Co. of Gorham, Maine. It was later purchased by Audway (Stubby) Treworgy of Gorham,Maine where it sat in his barn for over 40 years. When I finished the project I took the the truck to Gorham, Maine and took Stubby for a ride in the Old Home Days Parade in Gorham. I believe he was 93 years old at the time. It made his day.
Dave Lawrence, Greer,SC. I got a 27 closed cab grain side that I have been working on for about 2 years. Soon I’ll have a rolling chassis with Ruckstell rearend and engine/trans rebuilt.

email@example.com Chris Hansen, Unionville, Mi.: I have had my TT since I rebuilt it when I was 16 years old. I found it in the woods with a tree growing through the frame. All I could salvage was the rear
axle, warford, rear tires, wheels and rims, and frame. I found a steel cab in near perfect condition for $10 my dad had a spare front axle, spring, and motor. The most expensive part was the wood for the bed, which we purchased at the local hardwood lumber mill (white ash).
It was my introduction into restoration of model T's (my Dad had always had one since 1927). I'm now 52 and I don't think I would let my TT go for love nor money.
firstname.lastname@example.org Gary Tillstrom, Atoka (near Memphis) TN: I bought a 22 off of ebay earlier this year for $455. I had to replace the rear tires, radiator, spark plug wires (now using barbed wire fence) and a few other small items. The sheet metal was in very good shape and still had traces of paint. Runs strong and starts on mag with 1/4 pulls every time. All that truck needed was the carb and gas tank cleaned out.
