I looked over the photos of this chassis and while it does seem useable for a total restoration I think the buy it now price seems out of this world! It seems to me with a lot of TT's on ebay restored selling for as little as 8,000 dollars or so that this chassis is maybe worth 2,000 tops right? I just wanted an opinion is all. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Rust-Free-s-Matching-1927-Ford-Model-TT-Truck-Chassis-Un -Molested-Original-T-/121221598466?pt=Vintage_Car_Truck_Parts_Accessories&fits=M ake%3AFord%7CModel%3AModel+T&hash=item1c395ecd02&vxp=mtr
My TT is an '18 with a cut down wood cab and a wood flatbed. It has a '23 engine, a Muncie, and Bennett brakes. It runs and drives well.
I seriously doubt I could get the "buy it now" $3,995 for my truck and I believe my truck is worth much more than that chassis.
Just my $0.02 worth
It might be worth that if it was freshly rebuilt and had shiny new paint on it.
I picked mine up for 5k with new tires and it runs and drives
Four grand? Ha!
Derek, exactly. I think a fully rebuilt Model T chassis painted and running could bring four or five grand. But a chassis in need of total restoration just seems too pricey for that. You have to think engine rebuilds cost at least 4,000 usually. Then again if we added up the cost of restoring a T or TT from death we'd all be buying them restored instead I am very forunate to have had my grandfather supply probably around 85-90% of my T chassis' parts since he's been collecting since the 50's. It's saved me a lot of money in the long run. Who knows, maybe I'm just a cheapskate?
My complete TT cost $6500. It had new rear tires and runs like a clock. That buy it now price is a joke, or my TT was a steal
Nice truck! In my country it might sell for that but not in the USA. At least not yet.
This one cost 2,500 and I drove it home.
Interesting bolts on the motor mounts, springs on the top bolts and no bolts or blocks on the side. Is this specific to a TT or just laziness on a mechanic's part in it's former life? Jim
This is a good example of a late ('26-'27) TT chassis that is original with lots of detail. However, the front end, black-painted portion, appears to be wrong for that year. I am finally seeing some of the detail I have been searching for.
Jim, TT's did have different engine mount bolts according to the late ('26 - '27) parts list but I don't know what the difference was. Also, after about 1925 there were no side bolts or blocks.
he does have a best offer option tell him/her what it is worth to you but be prepared if your offer is accepted. I'm thinking $500 - $700 if it was only closer.
Ryan, your TT was definitely a good deal, at the very least! Cripes, I put $2000 just in new rear rims and tires on my TT firetruck last year alone! Then add the $850 radiator....on and on.
OK, I knew I saw one like this somewhere! Right here in the classified section. He wants $4500 firm, looks decent, lots of accessories.
Just as an after look.. the left front frame rail is twisted and the front cross member is damaged (BENT) may be I was hasty in my $5 -$700 range. but there are some usable parts.
Tim, I definitely thought so. I ran and grabbed it on one of the coldest days of last year, here in Illinois. The old-timer had to pull-start it due to the oil having congealed, but it fired right up and ran just fine in less than 10F degree air. I've only done cosmetic work to it so far. Cheap repaint (this is a working truck) and tons of scraping to get the paint off the original stakes on the back. The picture in my profile is how it sits now.
That complete running Chassis on our own Classifieds page is for sale today for $1700, down from $4,500. That may be a bit better of a deal!
Let's face it...TT are becoming popular... probably because they are the only thing left. Takes a lot of work to restore only a chassis...don't give them away. They are interesting and fun...potential discovery.
There are two extra zeros on the price, Bob
You guys are so harsh. That truck would be an excellent start for someone wanting a truck.
You charge what the market will bare. Let's see if it sells at this price. If it does, good for the seller. One thing I won't do is put a price on another man's goods.
that frame has been listed all summer. guess nobody see's a bargain there
Did anyone see what the running TT chassis sold for in the classified's?? $1700.00!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Dennis,Do [you] mean [you] in [you] or you as the rest of us???????????? Bud.
I tried buy the chassis in the forsales but in the end bought the c cab from the for sales now how to get it home ??
I haven't had a t in many years and only had 6k to spend that limited m in my search and didnt want todo full resto
I decided to buy the c cab for many reasons but the price and condition felt right although i owned a few tt in the past never had one drivable
So coming back to the hobby pkus i needing buy a truck haul home items for my house remodel i killed two birds with one stone plus get the cheaper insurance
Over the last couple of years old trucks of any make realy come into there own and become the new hot items to collect
Rust Free means you don't have to pay extra for the rust!
