1924 Model TT Ford One Ton Truck

1924 Model TT Ford One Ton Truck - $15,000 OBO

I’m selling this truck for a good friend, Barney Deden.

This Ford truck was originally purchased by T.A. Moneypenny of Crete, Nebraska from a Ford dealer in Beatrice, Nebraska.  The dealer ordered the truck without a starter or generator to save money for the buyer.  He also ordered only the chassis, drive train, fenders and hood.  He then installed an “after market” cab and box which also saved on the cost of the truck.  These changes not only saved money it also made the truck much lighter than the factory model which had a very heavy steel cab and bed.  This lighter truck allowed the farmer to have more hauling capacity for the little 20 horse engine.  Extensive on line research shows a cab and box very similar to this one was manufactured by the Patriot Manufacturing Company of Havelock, Nebraska, a suburb of Lincoln.  Patriot was a wagon manufacturer which expanded into truck boxes after the introduction of small trucks by car manufacturers in the late 1910’s.  The truck boxes are very similar to the earlier wagon boxes. 
 
On the death of Moneypenny the truck was passed to his step-son, Joseph L. Vance and spouse, Hazel P. Vance of Pleasant Dale, Nebraska.  Sometime in 1980 Joe Vance sold the truck to Jerry Martin of Omaha, Nebraska.  Jerry never re-titled the truck.  He drove it sparingly for a few years and it then sat untouched in his garage for about 30 years.  Barney Deden purchased it from Jerry October 11, 2011.  Barney immediately set about a complete disassembly, cleaning and restoration from the frame up.  A search for a replacement right rear axle found a complete rear end in great shape which also had a working Ruxtell axle.  While re-building the rear end a “high speed” ring and pinion was installed to make the truck easier to drive in todays traffic.  The new gears provide a ratio of 5.17:1 while the original gears were 7.25:1.  This resulted to about a 10 mph increase over the factory rear end, with a road speed of 27 mph +.
 
Some comments on the restoration:

The engine and transmission were disassembled without removing the pistons.  They and the cylinders showed no unusual wear.  The valves were “hand ground” and the valve springs were replaced.  New bushings were installed in the transmission and the transmission bands were replaced.  The magnets were charged.  On reassembly the engine starts easily on a small 6 volt battery and runs very smoothly on the mag.  The gas tank was cleaned by a radiator shop and the inside was coated with a preservative.  New spindle bushings and king pins were installed. 
The wood on the back and top of the cab and some other small pieces was weathered beyond restoration.  It was replaced with poplar wood, a light wood to save weight.  The back window was increased in size to make it twice as wide and make it easier to see behind while driving.  A new seat and back cushion were installed.  All glass was replaced with new safety glass.  None of the wood in the box was salvaged.  The support members were reproduced with the weight-saving poplar wood.  The box floor and sides were copied from the originals but made of red maple with 3 coats of polyurethane.  The hardware on both the cab and the box is the original hardware, cleaned and repainted.  The original black wood spokes were sanded and finished with polyurethane.  New tires were installed.
The original truck box had two more tiers of side and front boards.  They were saved for patterns, it wanted.

George,
I have sent previous emails and I'll try again.
I have a 1914/15 Ray Wells bodied C Cab Model T truck that is 85% finished.
All it needs is the sheet metal repainted
select the lights, and touch up the body sides. I have $14,250 into it but
I would like to know if you have interest in
trading with your TT. I am sure we could work out something for the
difference.....Freight? Let me know.
