I'm thinking about getting a closed cab TT. But before I start wasting mine and other people's time, I should find out if it will fit in my garage.
My door is 7'. My 20 Centredoor fits with 3 inches or so clearance. Anyone have an educated guess how tall an early 20s TT closed cab truck would be?
I would say 7'3" its a little taller than the 26 roadster with the top up
The TT does not fit in a standard (7') door.
My TT is 7' 2". It will not fit in my garage.
I guess I am going to have to wait until I can construct a shed to hold it then.
Thanks for the info guys.
My "TT" sat in a bin at my work for ten years because it wouldn't fit under my 7' garage door at home...When I did have it in there I lowered the front axle wit the wheels off onto some rollers I made...The back on a big floor jack,under the diff....What a pain....knocking those rear wheels off....The things Ya do to keep your old Model T,or TT in this case...Carl..
Back when I had a steamboat, once I forgot to take the stack off before leaving the garage. Damage wasn't bad, but did I feel STUPID. Stack was on in the garage as I had a smoke jack put in when the garage was built. Inspector allowed me to put in a "Water Heater" jack/vent--was the only thing we could come up with to justify/allow it!
Never thought about it when we sold the house---I wonder what the new owners thought that was for? (had sold the boat (dumb, dumb, dumb. . .) years before, so no evidence why it was there was left).
I have a 24 TT C-Cab that just fits in my garage door.
My TT is 86", confirming Dennis' 7' 2".
When we got my 1919 hack home I found that it did not fit thru the garage door so I got the sawzall out and made it fit.
No - I did not cut the top off the T.
I cut about 3 inches out of the center 4 feet of the header above the door as the guy that helped me move the T laughed.
Later I attached a 2x4 to the top of the door to fill in the space and made the fascia plate removable.
My 'solution' was recognized before I built the new shop... A closed cab, Ruckstell worm-drive & 30X3 clinchers said "Have 7'4" clearance!" My 'problem' was identified after I had put the TT in the new house' attached garage (7' OH door with a 5" drop from floor to the gravel drive), and THEN poured the new concrete driveway. (The TT wouldn't come out as it had been parked!) Had to remove the rims and tires, use rolling floor jacks, and even needed to remove the garage' trim molding.... A shop with a 10' ceiling and an 8' high overhead door now works very well. And much more fun!
My 26 TT fits through a 7' door. Driveway is slightly sloped in front of door and helps. Door must be up past the header to fit. (mine is a sectional door with low headroom hardware). Only about 1" or less to spare.
Colin mentions a good point - most garage door openers have an adjustment for the up stop position of the door. Check to make sure that the opener pulls the door up high enough so that you can use the full height of the door opening.
Adjust the door all one wishes, ... a 7'-2" truck is not going to pass though a 7'-0" door hole without taking extra measures !
