Does anyone have a site or resource to prove the value of a 1927 Ford TT truck? I'm in the process of registering it in Massachusetts and they have it over-valued. I bought it as a project for $1,400.00 and when looking on the NADA site, the closest thing they list is a pickup (I assume the roadster pickup) with a value of $8,500. As usual in Mass, the only thing I can do is pay the tax and fight for a refund at the Dept. of Revenue, but I need proof. Any ideas? Manheim used to have an online goldbook, but that's gone now.
Do they ever sell on eBay? If so, save screen shots showing the prices they sell for. Maybe some ads from hmn.com and Craig's List would help.
Here is one Stan has for sale for $2500:
Sold on Ebay $5500 to $12,500:

There are a few listed here for $3500 to $19,000:
Another here for $25,000 CA:
It really depends on condition.
I paid $1000 for my complete, but very weathered 25. The fully restored 26 cost me $8000. Both trucks are nearly identical
closed cabs with Ford script flatbeds.
Chris -- Post a pic or two and we'll give you some "more-or-less-educated guesses."
Chris - Have you done any improvements to the truck since you bought it? If you did and paid sales tax on those parts or services and can prove that (like with receipts from Langs), those things improved the value of your truck. You should not pay tax a second time on those improvements when you register the truck, since those improvements raised the value of the truck.
We pay enough taxes as it is.....
I'll try to post a pic, but this is more of a hillbilly TT (no closed cab, and a home-made wood stake body). The biggest issue is that NADA doesn't list a TT; only a pickup, which could be another model.
I'll have to gather some sale results and see what I can do. Thanks again, Chris.
Here's a project TT chassis without engine that sold for $1000: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Ford-Model-T-TT-1922-ford-model-tt-/291272521244
And here's a TT running chassis with a warford and high compression head that didn't sell for $2000??: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Ford-Model-T-stock-1924-model-tt-ford-one-ton-truck-chas sis-/201184479261
Finally a very nice running complete TT that sold for $5,500: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Ford-Model-T-Original-1924-ford-model-tt-flatbed-truck-/ 271569800769
That last one is a real mish-mash. The nose is 26-27 passenger car grafted to a 25-26 box cab.
Boy, do those rounded fenders look goofy on a truck !
