Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2017: Intro to my Model TT project
Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Matthew Weaver on Wednesday, January 25, 2017 - 07:36 pm:

Just wanted to say hi and share a couple pics of my 1925 and 1926 Model TTs. I helped my grandfather get the Green 26 back in shape before he passed. It's got a Chicago auxiliary transmission and still retains its original motor matching the frame number.

The project, I got it in Statesville, NC back in 2000, when I was in the military in GA. The truck runs and has a Ruxtell 2 spd rear ended. It's been in and out of storage for the last few years and looks like I'm going to get started on it finally. It's missing the brake shoes and ruxtell shifter, but the shift rod is there. It's got the wrong radiator on it right now, but I have the original off to get a couple tubes fixed.

Just wanted to say hello from Arthurdale, WV and look forward to learning from everyone on here. - Matt

Thanks Dallas and Tom I responded to your PM. I'm looking forward to heading over to the swap meet in Luray in March and the one in Marietta, OH. Both are within about a 2 1/2 hour drive from me. Hope to pick up some parts and have a productive TT summer now that I have a job, where I have enough time at home to get something done. Just wish my grandad was still here to help. - Matt

Its not the same as having your grandad aroud,but there are plenty people that will take the time to look up info or post pics and explain from years of experience how to get the job done. All you have to do is ask. Great bunch here.

Great project Matt. I have a 25 TT with a Ruckstell also. It gets more attention than any of my T's out in public. Bikers love the darn thing. Also, if you can't find shoes, I might have some in my pile.

Matt, I don't want to say too much for Dallas, but he will have a lot of TT parts come this spring. :-) He may be able to help you out with some parts. Dave

The photo of the green truck show the front springs to be almost flat, just like the ones in my TT. Time to re-arch them ??

The tire-to-fender clearance is really small too.
