Does anyone know what was used for the trim around the pedals on the 1926 - 1927 TT truck? Up to 1925 they used the same ones which were used on the cars. With the change of the pedal spacing in 1926, did they use the same pedal plates as was used in the cars, or did they have a special set of plates. All the documentation I have is for the board and pedal plate assembly. None of it specifies which pedal plate was used.

The reason I ask is that when they moved the slot for the clutch pedal over, it places it very close to the edge of the board. Up to 1925 the slots in the upper plate about 2-3/4" long and were shorter than the bottom plate. For 26-27 the slots were about 3-1/4" long longer and are the same length as the bottom ones. Adding the longer slot in the upper board and moving it over places the top corner of the slot really close to the edge of the board which makes that end piece very easy to break off.

Just checking if they really used the longer slots, or if they had a special plate with the shorter slot and wider spacing just for the TT truck.

They were exactly the same as the cars Dave.

When you get ready to install the pedal trim plates, don't forget to install the draft deflector with them.

The Body Parts and Price Book lists the same part # for the Fordor sedan and the Open Cab TT on floorboard w/ plate #2 [T-9496BX]

But...floorboard w/ plate #3 has two different no's, the TT Open Cab is [TT-12308X] , so it would appear the TT had some variation of that floorboard as you suspect.

The #3 floor board is the main one which sits flat on the floor. The Closed Cab truck uses the same floor boards as the 24 Coupe, Tudor and Fordor. The C-Cab uses the same #1 and #2 boards, but a totally different #3 board.

Thanks for the replies.

I've got a question for you TT truck guys. Did they offer a C cab in '27?

There's one in my shop that I'm working on now. Engine and frame numbers match. No reason to believe that it's not originally a '27 C-Cab. I've been told that they were pretty low production, since most buyers wanted the closed cab.

The owner says he and his Dad dug it out from a sand dune in western Oklahoma in the 50's. It probably was there since Dust Bowl days.
