Using the Forum members advice we got this 1926 home from western Wisconsin 7 hour drive at 65 MPH I have never towed a Model T over 35 mph before. We took out the seats and floor boards, took off the hood and really ratchet down the top Worked fine.
This will be a winder project. The gentleman we got it from still has his 1916 Model TT truck he drove to school at age 15 ! He Sold it when he went into the Marines and bought it back 55 years later
That 1916 is probably a car with a pickup bed on it. A TT has a worm drive rear end and is rated to carry a ton. (TT means ton truck)
I do not think they made TT truck in 1916?
Or maybe a Form-A-Truck conversion. Dave
Willie is correct. According to Bruce McCalley's book there were only 3 TT trucks produced for the 1917 year model (probably prototypes) and production actually got going for the 1918 production year. There's no such thing as a 1916 TT.
Happy to hear your trip went well! Looks Good.
Yep, no real problem at all.
Interesting facts. It is a truck and has a brass radiator and a worm gear in the back He has a picture of him at age 16 driving it He is about 80-85 years old Who knows sometimes what mods have been made to these great cars
I've seen a couple of TT's (1918 or later) fitted with a brass radiator and hood (1916 or earlier). Some guys seem to like'm that way.....
If you're interested enough to bother, you can measure the wheel base to see if it's a T with a worm drive or a TT with a brass radiator. 123" it's a TT, 100" (I think) it's a T.
David K, I bet you were not too far from my place. Did you pick that car up on County road S off from Hwy 61?? I only live a few miles from there and know the fellow well.
Paul Yes a VERY interesting visit with another Model T'er He built a miniature Ford Tri Motor in his yard for his grand kids... We visited for way too long so it became a two day but well worth the visit trip You live in a very BEAUTIFUL part of the Nation with rolling green hills
