Seller seems to make pains that it is so special [with it being such an original 1924], one wonders if it should be noted that it has a 26/27 pedal set, 4-dip pan and coil box mounted atop the engine ?

The two speed tranny and flat head motor with wood spoke wheels are very rare! Oh,wait, they all came that way.

Is that a ruckstell shifter don't tell him what that is for, the price will jump another 7 grand!(Or maybe that is what he thinks is a two speed transmission)

What's rare is the "original" cut off touring body. I didn't "C" another cab ?

A "little" TLC? Yikes! This is on life support!

I once bought a TT that had a body like that and Snyder's told me that someone had stuck a roadster body on a TT frame. I liked it anyway.

Erik, That's the rarest of all TT "pickups", a 1918 with electric start. That's obviously the reason for the price. I won't be calling, because I'm not serious enough.

On the bright side, with prices like that the hot rodders won't be buying them!

I enjoy seeing them. The price for looking is just right.
Thanks for sharing them.

I have seen quite a few TT trucks with cut-off touring, runabout, coupe and even sedan bodies used on them. Other than some of the better wooden cabs (like Martin-Perry), I think they are my favorites. It was just a natural to buy the chassis, and pick up a body from a junked T and just use it. I think that if I were to yet get a T chassis, that is what I would do with it. (If I live long enough?)

I like it, I'm just not a fan of the price.

I'm with Wayne and Tim - she's great (minus the price). Minus whatever it took to get her running, along with a coat of linseed oil -I wouldn't touch a thing on her.

I missed out on TT up in Maine a few years ago - had a '24 (or so) coupe body mounted on her with a homemade express bed. She'd been pulled from an old hay barn after 50+ years and was fantastic looking.

I like both trucks,but like others the price is a shut down. Going to auctions around here isn't any better. I attended an auction because one of the items was a 1919 TT. I waited around for about 5 hours to get to the TT and when it came up the opening bid from me was $900 (Seized motor no carb etc, but a usable cab) next bid came from the Internet for $5,000.00! I just shook my head and walked off. Two weeks later the internet buyer had a change of heart, He found out how much it was going to cost to ship it to Ok. He got my name from the auctioneer and wanted to know if I would buy it for the price he paid..... I think you know my answer. Oh well try again next year!

That Charlottesville (Orange county) truck is where all the trucks would go cruising in the 80's. Looks like this one wasn't ready in time.

Weren't they ALL running when they were parked?

OMG did you see that purple engine!

Not defending the OP, but I have seen a lot of CL listings where the lister is looking for a trade and puts a higher price on the item as that is what he wants as a value in trade. If you offer him 5k cash or less, he might jump. But, he won't take a 5k hot rod (not rat road) in trade.
