hello i m french i a model tt 1925 but i have na steel cab, i have old wood and ugly design , so i want to build a real tt cab all steel, so i m sure in this forum somebody have a tt steel cab and can give to me some goosize to help me
thanks to evrybody and size of firewall because it s different of regular model t car
Rene, Look at www.modelthaven.com They may have a cab. They are in Iola, Kansas.
Shipping a cab to Europe would be pretty expensive. I expect that's why Rene is asking for measurements so he can build his own.
They're very rare/unexistant over here - all TT's imported by Ford to Sweden got locally produced bodies. I suppose it was arranged similarily in most other countries?
yes there is no original metal cab in europ , all are made by local builders and 90% are all wood anly firewall and hood are steel, so that why i ask to evrybody, and buy a cab in usa cost around 1000 usd and rent a truck and trailer cost around 300 usd and fly ticket cost around 700 usd and local money for food and motel again 500 usd and send to france again 1000 usd so that around 3000 usd for a cab ;( that too much , i think yu understand my position ;)
Does the top windshield thumb knobs look different? That cab is in nice shape. The doors are very hard to find.
Rene I don't have a TT to get you any measurements, but hopefully someone will fairly soon.
Definitely take pictures and keep us up to date as you work on making the steel cab. I think that will be VERY cool.
Mine is a wooden cab, or I would take the measurements for you. Hopefully, someone with a later TT will chime in soon.
Since I suck at forum searches, possibly someone else remembers. There was a poster here who built an all steel, square cab TT including doors. I recall he built his from exact dimensions tho he took liberties with his end product. Possibly an IM from the OP to the builder could reveal required dimensions.
I think it was Travis E. Towle in Kansas who built a metal truck cab several years ago, probably one of the years where most of the postings are gone (2007-2008?), since searching doesn't show much. More recently he had it for sale in the classifieds, but postings there are deleted after three months.
If you give me a day i will measure all this tonight and post it tomorrow.
The one I'm remembering wasn't built by Travis. The poster had an ongoing "progress" thread. Probably 2011-12-13, I don't think much earlier. I had saved pictures because I thought it was a cool build, but now can't find them
THANKS TO EVRYBODYS TO TRY TO HELP ME, i check evrydays update to see some plan and size, this is for me and all people want to make it ;)
thanks again for the interest
I have the exact same, but a '26 stake-bed. Mine also has a 'lip' across the bottom which fits under the bed.
- A = 39" (inches)
- B = 4"
- C = 2 9/16" (2.562")
- D = 27" to top of cowl
- A = 56"
- B = 51 1/4" (51.25") but 52" following across top curve
- C = 3" to rain gutter
- D = 22"
- E = 22"
- F = 8" to top of lip
- G = 8"
- H = 35 1/4" (35.25")
- A = 28"
- B = 21 1/2" (21.5")
- A = 56"
- B = 9 3/4" (9.75")
- C = 38" (38.5" following the curve to the cowl)
- D = 38" straight; 38 3/8" (38.375" with the curve to cowl); 40 1/2" (40.5") extending over the windshield
Hoping this is what you were seeking, and is of help to you.

yes i find about trvis project , but its not really closed cab design by ford , its more personal project...
Uh, sorry, I mixed up the names. It was Thomas Travis who made the personal style closed cab I was thinking of. If going totally original style, import from a rust free US state doesn't seem all that bad for me - but I'm not very talented in sheet metal shaping. Good luck
Rene, that was the link I was thinking of.
