We had this truck in an auction last June, sold it to a friend of mine, he decided he will never get anything done with it so I bought it from him awhile back. I know that "never get anything done with it" story so I want to resell it. Need some money, too much stuff, hate to see it just set there -- all that.
It is probably a 25 since it has the narrow pedals but your guess is as good as mine.
The express box is pretty decent and has the tailgate.
As you can see, both doors are on the square cab as is the windshield frame.
BOTH rear fenders are there.
It has a Warford behind the transmission.
Looks like a worthy project to me. I really like the little grain door somebody added to the express box tailgate.
Payment in full now, you can come get it when the snow melts in Montana. It is not too likely that I could get it to Chickasha but depending on the weather I might be able to get somebody to haul it for $$$$. Located in Helena, Montana. It came from dry, windy northern Montana where things don't rust much.
I want $1950 for it, the box and the doors are probably worth that, everything else is free.
Looks like a heck of buy to me. JMHO Dave
Yeah, considering that I sold a driver's side door at Chickasha about ten years ago for $500 and the passenger side doors bring 250-300; the box is worth $800-1000 with the tailgate and the fenders another 2-3-400 at least even with the wrinkles in them and that the original running boards and all that is there it seems like a fair price to me. The engine is all there, the head is off but that's no big deal. I wish I had a few more detail pictures of the cab but I couldn't find any. These are the photos that were on the auction advertising.
I thought I had a couple of the interior but this is all I could find. Better pic of the drivers side.
It has a Warford also which is worth a few hundred $. This is certainly a good restoration project.
Stan, the easiest way to tell a 25 from a 26-7 is the dash. It will either mount the rectangular pre 26 switch plate with ammeter, or mount the 26-7 rounded switch plate with ammeter. Even if the cab is off the frame or has the wrong trans, this applies.
Concerning what year this truck is, if it was built on or after December 12, 1925, it will have the original engine number stamped on top of the frame. This number is usually on the right side about where the passengers feet would be, but is sometimes found on the left side.
I see that this truck also has the longer running boards with boot scrapers. These are usually a '26 - '27 feature.
I'd go take a look but it is under a couple feet of snow as is the road to get to where it is parked. IIRC is has the rounded 26/7 dash cutout. Thanks, guys.
It doesn't have the T moulding on the back seems of the cab, so I would say it isn't 26-27. The dashes can be changed easily.
The dashes on the 1925 and 1926-27 Ford TT closed cab are not all that easy to change out because they are riveted to the door hinge pillars and cowl area, a area that is hard to get to.
It's a greAt old truck wish it was in ringgold Ga. Cool truck. Tim
