We were lucky enough to drag home this beauty from the auction today. My plan is to get it running and put tires on it. I love the old look. The box is made out of a newer ford truck box, and the rear fenders are cut from old 50 gal drums. but I think it looks pretty cool. Anyone else have a cool original old farm truck?
Matt, Looks like you are getting the young one started early. They seem happier that you. Good job of being a DAD. Scott
Way Cool !
Yep, my Albert (see my profile page) ;-)
Those boys know how to dress in style.
From the looks on everyones faces, I think you will have a lot of fun. Do your homework on that vehicle, and buy the Ford Service Book.
Look like great projects.
Thanks for all the nice comments. This is our third model T in the collection. My Gramps got me interested in them when I was my Sons age and taught me how to work on them, I am just passing down the tradition. I would like to find a set of hard rubber wheels for the front if anyone has anything.
I am happy you will enjoy it in it's aged state. It is a fine looking truck.
Matt,It looks to me as if you hit it out of the park!!
Yup, just plain cool !!
Awesome truck matt what a find!!
Nice find ! Sounds like you have a good plan for the truck. What is the plan for the coupe body?
You may find some Pneuflex tires, but I would use them for display only. At nearly 100 years old I suspect they wouldn't last long in actual use. I'll use them on my TT project for photos, but it will run on Riversides.
Way to go, Matt.
More photos!! Nice square-cab.
Great looking truck. I agree with Steve that the 90+ year old hard tires would probably be better for photos rather than actual use.
And its great that you are passing on your love of old cars to the next generation.

I agree about the hard tires, I just wanted them to roll it around wile we are working on it and for display purposes. This truck is mainly going to be used for slow speed puttering at threshing shows ext. If I want to get out and tour with it I would not use the hard tires.
Nice lookin' truck Matt! Thanks for giving it more life. :-)
"Anyone else have a cool original old farm truck?"
Ya had to ask didn't ya? :-)
If I may. Another very original truck about an hour west of you. A buddy has a pretty original 25 TT 11 miles closer to you.
Our truck came from Nicollet earlier and had been sitting near New Ulm since 93 or so.
Goes by the name of Lucky. Poor photo.
I gotta get the box extensions off of there. Can't see nothin' behind.
Hehe. I like ours better with the doors off. Nails for hinge pins. Easy peasey.
But that scares the crap out of the grandsons. :-)

Matt I love that truck. That crew you have looks like some real workers. Help like that should make a fun project that all can enjoy.
Duane, Im no expert but the hub cap is in the wrong place on that TT. Hee hee hee! I have to admit I love all those sweaty TT trucks.
Neat TT and great photo, have fun !
