A video found by a member of our local T club. He doesn't know anything about it.

The truck is a 1923 C cab TT with an express bed. A Ruckstell rear end, fender brace, side mount Ruckstell shift lever, and oil marker lamps as accessories.

Nice video.

I Believe it's a '24 or '25 Cab as Ford didn't produce a steel factory cab until 1924. Homemade "express" bed which the Ford steel version again arrived in 1924. My Gramps bought this new in Seattle in 1924 - has a December '23 engine number - it's an original C-Cab Express.

Steve,

Excellent points. The TT in the video may have been produced in 1923 and in a state where they license based on the year produced and not the model year.

I love your TT express. Is that a water bag hanging in the spare. Been a looooong time since I've seen a water bag IN USE.

Thanks,
Terry

Quite possible Terry.

My Gramps used/drove this TT until 1958 when his eyes began to fail him & that water bag was on it when my Dad got it from the estate.
