I need all the help/advice I can get. I just purchased a 1924 MODEL TT. I'm new to Model T I'd like to know if it came with a speedometer and what kind of cab I have. It's all wood with windows and opening doors.
Welcome to the forum Roger! Post a photo of your find, 250k size limit.
I have to pick it up in Omaha Nebraska. I'm in Virginia. I'll post the pictures when I return.
Roger,please post photos. Wood cab? You lucky dog.
If I remember correctly, 1925 was the first year that Ford offered truck bodies. Before that, a TT was a bare chassis and it was up to the owner to buy a body or make his own. So your truck's cab could be from one of the many aftermarket suppliers, or it could be home made.
No, it didn't come with a speedometer. That's another aftermarket item. Ford quit including them in 1915 when the suppliers couldn't keep up with his pace of production.
Welcome to the T hobby. Nice to hear of another TT owner. TT trucks are fun - even though a little slow unless you get an overdrive installed :-)
My 'Albert' is a 1925 NZ local built cab TT (see my profile for a picture).
1924 was Ford's first "all steel" TT cab.
Congrats - another TT coming to Virginia. I'm jealous! I'd love to have a TT to toodle around town in!
Although Ford began offering the all steel C-cab in 1924, and a little later for the enclosed cab (model year '25), Ford also continued offering the basic chassis (both with or without fenders hood etc) till the end of model T sales. While the Ford supplied cabs put a huge dent in the after-market truck body companies' business? They continued offering and building such bodies for several years.
I also look forward to seeing photos of your new truck! I really like the wood cab trucks.

Gotta love those TT's
