We have dug this out of a barn for an estate auction. The family didn't even know their father had this gem, so suffice it say, we were very excited when we uncovered it. A little history and info on the truck would be great and I'm assuming it's a Model TT but as far as dating the truck is something I'd like to leave to you fine folks of this forum. Thank you for your input and look forward to the feedback.

Yes, it is a TT. Here is the photo:
Is it a 1924 by any chance? Where would the numbers be? Thanks again.
...failure to communicate..."Cool Hand Luke" (sorry. I couldn't resist).
Look under the hood on the drivers side. Just above the water intake is a set of numbers. Give us those numbers and we will tell you the year.
That is gorgeous! I would make it mechanically sound and would do nothing more than clean the dust off of it.
The Family seems to think that (based on internet research) they should put a reserve of $5500 on it. Personally, I think reserves are a great way to kill a sale. Especially, when they had no idea what it was or that they even had it. Let it sell and let someone else love it.
( when I go back to the site I'll retrieve the numbers)
It Appears to be a Lindsay Commercial body and cab
for Ford Chassis as listed in there 3 1 1925 catalog #64.
That's interesting. At the capacities of the grain bodies that would put a load of about 5000 lbs on the ton truck. Today I figure that a one ton truck can haul 2 tons, I guess that was the same for a TT.
Wow, that is in amazing shape for a 90 year old wood body and bed!
Here's a link for more pics for you viewing pleasure. Thanks again for the info. The Lindsey bed catalog is awesome.
Cody, my antivirus software just blocked that site and gave me a warning, others beware!
Really??!! It's my business website! that's not good. I can assure you its fine but I will check it for bugs. See if you can enter the site through Google or something. Thanks for the heads up.
What a great looking truck! And that info you posted Bob, is awesome.
I'd love to have a truck like that for the farm.
That would be worth a trip to Rolla Mo. if the price was right. That's a great find.
PS It also has a Ruckstell.
