How my answer to Tom rose all the way to the top of this post when I wasn't even the original poster, is beyond me. Administrator, you had better check this glich, out.
Tom, thanks for the correction. It has been thirty years since I had a TT and couldn't remember which original TT size corresponded to the modern 6.00x20 size. That's why I said, "or am I wrong". I knew one of the size tires that later TT's used, did, but I was unaware that this truck had the correct tires. My apology to the seller and thanks for pointing my error out to me.
We are offering a '21 TT flatbed truck that has been owned by the same family since NEW. This Ford is almost all original and certainly a "survivor". Though it has not been run/operated for over a decade, the engine turns freely, tires/tubes are not dry rotted and hold air. The following description was offered by seller: "Our Grandpa bought this Ford Model TT new in 1921 as a truck chassis and built the wooden cab and bed himself. He used it around his rural Maine homestead to haul logs from his woods and granite from his quarry for cabins. After his death in 1969 our Dad trailered it home to our Ohio farm where it has resided since, under cover in our barn, and driven only occasionally on country back roads." We are offering this exceptionally well preserved (UNRESTORED)piece of history for a very reasonable $ 14,900, or nearest offer. Please contact Mark for/with more information.

It was used on a farm in Maine to take veggies to market. I have first and last Maine plates with several in between. The last inspection sticker of 1950 is still on windshield.

Thank you Jim for your input regarding the '21 TT.
We are hopeful for someone who values the owner history and authenticity of the truck. Certainly open to offers, just not wanting to give it away.
It IS time, however, for it to find a new home.
Price reduced to $7,250.00 Please call Mark @ 330-483-3100.
If it runs and drives without any obvious defects and the motor sounds decent It certainly should fetch at the very least, $4,500. If it was cleaned up real nice and all the tires are very good It might make $5,500, but it could take a while to match it up with the right buyer (someone who really wants a TT with a home-made body). These are prices that people knowledgeable about Model Tís might be willing to spend. People not knowledgeable about Model Tís might spend more.
This seller is on the correct path (starting high, advertising, and gradually lowering the price).
Oddly enough, the original price probably wasnít out of line from a professional appraisers point-of-view. Iíve had experience with several Tís over the last 15 years that had professional appraisals that were three times or more over the amount the vehicles would realistically sell for.
TT buyers are a unique subset of T buyers.
There are a lot of unknowns with this one, namely the family does not know much about the mechanical condition of this TT.
Would make an interesting project for the right buyer.
I am new at this part of the old car hobby, and have never laid eyes on a TT. I understand that they are like the cars from the driver seat forward, but just how big are these things? Would one fit in a standard garage? Cheers, Bill
Bill, I have a 23 TT with a martin Parry wood cab. It will not fit in a 7ft door. I love the TT trucks. The work horse of the T's.
Here is my 26 roadster and TT for size difference.
$6750. New ad but more pictures here.
Mark. You are a fast study in T marketing.Hang in there.Your market share increases as Your price decreases at some point both will meet with a new owner and the TT will be History.
Dallas, looks like you've got the subframe mounted. Looking good! Dave
The close up photo of the rear tire, plainly shows it to be a 33x5 tire. Isn't this size comparable to 6.00x20, or am I wrong. Rear wheels could have been changed at one time or another. If not, the 33x5 wasn't available until around 23 or 24, right? Still a very nice truck and if I had a TT, I would prefer the later size as tires are more available at a cheaper price.
"Isn't this size comparable to 6.00x20, or am I wrong." What do you mean by that?
THEY ARE 2 DIFFERENT SIZES. These are 23" Kelsey wheels, less common than the 23" Hayes. The 6.00 x 20 is a different size and type of wheel and tire.
I believe the wheels on this truck ARE correct for 1921.
