Show us your TT

Post by Dallas Landers » Wed Jul 31, 2019 5:18 pm

All this talk and tech info on TT's lately is great. Lets see them and hear a bit about them. Mine has been on here alot but I will go 1st.
1923 TT with a Martin-Parry No. 20 vestibule cab. It has an American 8in1 convertible motor truck body " bed" that is 9ft long. It has an aftermarket period frame extension with a Chicago 3 speed trans. Its 17 ft. long and 7ft 4in tall. It has high speed gears in the rear and an Apco explosion proof muffler. Kelsey 33x4 1/2 in wheels in the rear and kelsey 30x3 1/2 front wheels.

Maybe some guys that are thinking they may want a TT can see all the different styles and options, we can push them over the edge into the twisted world of the TT truck.

It's not mine, but I spotted this one at the Dosey Doe music venue in The Woodlands, TX.

I love the bed on it.

So 2 sticks plus e brake will be inside the cab. We have the shift housing and linkage for the driveline trans but it doesn't have the lever and cap, so right now it's a hole in the floor.

Two levers are made but have not been finished for outside the driver's side door. We added step length, the levers will come up in the middle of the rear step, just behind the door. One will be the 2 speed rear end, the other is the PTO engagement.

Adrian, I drool everytime I see Albert. I plan on some tool boxes for mine as there is no place to haul tools or fuel and water. I have some boxes from another bed for patterns.

Lucky the '24 TT is so blame happy, even the rusted out home made Vaporizer plate is smiling like a child! :lol:
He has a late engine and a Warford under-direct-over. He again waits for his turn. Maybe rear tires after I pay for OT goodies later this year. :)
He came from the Nicollet, MN area, spent 30 years near New Ulm and now lives up here. Erik Johnson was kind enough to help trace the pioneer license plate # and gave me the last name of the owners from the 70's. :)

My truck has been out of commission for a month now. :( Seems the belt kept coming off. Turns out that the bottom pulley was loose and with the help of Tom Pilz and an extra one he had at his place, we got the TT ready for a test. Trouble is that I had taken the radiator to a shop to have some cracks fixed and have it checked out. Washed down the internals with some vinegar and put the radiator with a repainted cowl, new shell lacing, and a new belt.

We also took apart the belt tightening eccentric and replaced with another. I had the one with the threads that were supposed to adjust the belt. Didn't work so we took apart another and replaced that piece. Again from the Tom collection. (I am so glad to have him to lead us to TT land!)

Most recently, after putting the front of the truck back together, I've been working on the seating, gas tank position, turn off valve and extension and the way the seating and rear truck bed were going to be put together. The picture is of the seating and cab area with the innards set up but not buttoned down. I want to check out the tank and make sure it doesn't leak, ( it had a slight weeping before we took it out) then fire it up and see if the belt is fixed.

That being done I'm ready to add the Rocky Mountain brakes before I finish the rear bed. I plan to use some wood I milled many years ago from trees that were on an estate in the Bronx of all places. The wood is mostly sixteen inches wide and has been dried for years now. The parts showing around the cab I will finish. The rear bed I'm going to leave rough and linseed oiled. I have a hay wagon we use to cart kids around the farm that I would like to mirror. The flat bed will have removable sides that will also serve as back rests when I begin to use the TT to take mini tours around the farm! On the side of the stake sides I'm going to carve a Farm sign that will also be finished and not rough. That will be done over the winter when the TT will be inactive, and I will be in Florida!

I'm also going to add some pics of the tools I made and used to put in the shell lacing. I made a tool specially made to open the rivets and then used another wrench to set them. I've also added a picture of Tom's T that he brought over a couple of weekends ago. This is the one he uses to run around in. Lastly I'm adding a picture of the letters that appeared when I was getting years of paint off of the cowl. I have no idea what they spell? perhaps you do.

Now to put the gas line back and fire it up. (still working on an appropriate gender and name. figure I should have some experiences with the truck and the name will appear)

Wanted a truck like this since my earliest memories. Saw things like this rusting in the dry,
late summer grass in the sleepy gold rush towns of the Sierras as a very small child. Later I
would find more of them rotting away in the woods of farms near ours, and the one that really
sticks out, that sat in Mrs. Miller's implement shed beside a same-era Fordson tractor, waiting for
the next callout to the fields and orchards. A lot of excuses and procrastinating later, I finally
just up and hunted down a decent example after coming home from AFG, and been fussing it
into a reliable backroads adventuring rig ever since. It has never been restored. Rather, it was
kept relatively nice its whole life. I was told I am the 3rd owner, with it remaining with the original
owner/family for many, many years.

It currently sits on some sketchy wheels and won't see much action this year. A nice set of metal
is boxed up and ready to ship to Stutzman for rebuilds. Since I got the truck, the engine and trans
were rebuilt and balanced, the Ruckstell rebuilt with express gears, and a general tweaking of various
aesthetic details has been done to give it that "suddenly it's 1939!" look.

My real hobby is surrounding myself with all the steam era junk I can find, making as much as possible
work and function. The TT brings all the rust hoarders and likeminded crazies out of the woodwork.
All I have to do is be seen driving it and they come to me to share stories and offer tours of their barns
and junk piles. The TT is the best tool I have ever employed for finding cool junk and putting smiles
on the faces of nearly everyone who passes by. The latter is my favorite aspect of TT ownership, ....
oh yeah, .... and it looks really great sitting there in the shop amongst all the other period junk.

Very nice Brent,
You are so right about the old trucks drawing out folk.

I told my (then) teenage son he could borrow Albert as its a real 'chick magnet'. ?? Yep, just look - every female you pass down town will stop and stare!

Its true, but he thought that teenage girls may be more interesting to meet than Grandma....

No disrespect toward T owners, but I have no use for them. I want a T that I can haul
things in. I use mine as my heavy hauler. Need to move boulders or brick or lumber ?
My daily modern can't haul what the TT can. It may not go 80 like the daily modern,
but I can make one trip at 30 and get the whole load there. The daily modern would
require 3 or more trips, taking more time overall, .... AND it is WAY more fun to see
the look on people's faces when they see it loaded high with something, going down
the road like it has no idea it isn't still 1939.

As for chick magnets, man .... if I had known a 20hp truck would draw in the
"chicks" like it does, I would have had one a LONG time ago ! Red convertible
muscle cars only draw low grade chest-pounder dudes. Women do not care about
horsepower and go-fast. That is a dude thing.

Dallas, a possible addition to this wonderful thread from January, Two Thousand Nineteen.
Us TT fellas come out of the woodwork don't we? I can say I love my TT. More than the Runabouts? Umm, emm, maybe.
Lucky the TT is so different.
I just saw pics of you with your new TT... Then. ;) Nice truck!

Speaking of TT’s, my wife found this clock a couple weeks ago -
780242C0-C224-41B5-B1D1-F5E1D0738ED3.jpeg
Celebrating the 100 years of Ford Trucks. Each hour ‘chime’ is a truck being started.

The 1917 TT is at 1:00
The 1922 TT is at 2:00
The 1927 TT at 3:00

Pretty cool clock.
If my short term memory gets any shorter, I won’t even have thought about what I’m going to forget.

Mark,

I imagine the folks reading this thread will not care if you currently own it, owned it previously, are considering buying it, only saw it somewhere, or whatever else you can think of. If you have TT photos PLEASE POST THEM! :D

OK, I'll bite .... Bought this one when I first demobed. It was a decent base,
but needed EVERYTHING. It had a 3-speed Warford and a frame extension kit.
The seller had owned it since 1955. He said it sat behind a gas station in his
little town in Minnesota, the name of which I have forgotten now, last licensed
in 1947.

I began the process of rounding up parts, but a short time later opted to buy a
more "ready-to-go" example and spare the wifeperson yet another project vehicle.
A wise move in the long run. Although not an old car fan, in the sense of the old
car scene, she likes them and is supportive of my time spent chasing this interest, ...
... and every now and again she moseys out into the shop and asks if we might take
it for a drive.

I ultimately sold this one and focused my energy on making the keeper truck
more "go anywhere".

My grandfather bought this 1923 TT from the used car lot at the local Chevrolet dealer in 1930 for $25.00.

It was sold new, as a chassis only, by Safford Ford here in Keene, NH to The Morgan Manufacturing Company, also in Keene, some time late in 1922 or very early in 1923. A part of the sales agreement included having this body installed. The story is that the chassis was driven, in the winter, from Keene to Winchendon, MA for that installation. The distance is about 24 miles.

My grandfather did paint over the lettering, but you could readily discern the words under the thin coat of paint. He used the truck for hauling and for those times when whichever car he had was not running. He put the truck up on blocks in the barn in 1948 and there it sat until 1967 when my dad decided to get the truck running.

Dad knew nothing about Model Ts, but did know enough to ask around for assistance. He found a semi-retired mechanic at the local Ford dealership who had worked on Model Ts when he was hired in 1920. (Now remember, this is 1967.) This mechanic (Ralph) had stayed with the dealership through all the change in ownership over the years. On the appointed day Ralph shows up at my widowed grandmother's place and we lead him into the barn. Now, the truck had always been in the barn and we thought that it was in decent condition. Ralph starts looking the truck over; opening the hood, looking under the truck, even looking under the seat cushions, and he is SILENT. He says nothing. Well, we start thinking that he must be seeing problems that we were unaware of. Eventually he turns and says " I helped unload this truck from the railroad car when it was new. I drove it to get the body put on in the winter."

Some years later Ralph had his last ride, from the church to the cemetery, in the bed of this truck. My Dad and Mom both had their last rides in this truck as well.

Great looking truck. Even better backstory ! Let me guess, .... Ralph changed the
oil, checked the coils, flushed the tank and put some fresh gas in it, and it fired right
up ! (?)

Love the commercial lettering !
