This is a 1925 TT truck which was restored 2 years ago.  At that time the truck had a new paint job and rear truck bed restored with new wood.  It was sold to a high school friend of mine who only drove it around the block a couple of times.  He no longer wants the truck and wants me to sell it for him because he doesn't know that much about Model T's.  The truck runs beautifully.  The engine has less than 100 hours since it was rebuilt. The magnets have been taken out and a special harmonic balancer was built on the flywheel to help take vibration out of the engine. It runs on a This is the same kind of balancer that is used on big 18 wheeler truck tires.  Even with a distributor, it can start with two cranks on the hand crank.  It has an electric starter as well.  On the drive train, it has a Muncie transmission behind the Ford transmission giving the truck 6 speeds forward and two reverse. The transmission bands have been replaced.  The TT which was notorious for slow driving speeds has a 5:1 worm drive replacing the standard 7:1 allowing the truck to drive faster and keep up with traffic.  With the Muncie and the high speed rear end make a huge difference.

In addition to this, the truck has a very rare rear shock system using three springs on each shock.  Two leaves have been re-arranged on the rear springs to give the truck a softer ride.  It has a trailer hitch. It has Rocky Mountain brakes, Kingston carb, Chrome radiator shell, window side curtains for bad weather, New radiator. and a tilting truck bed.  It also comes with a Klaxton type Oooga horn and outside rear mirror.  

The rear tires are old and new rear tires have been bought and with go with the truck.  They have not been installed.  The front tires are fine. All the wood on the wheel is in good shape. This is as good as any TT you will find.

2015 Ford Focus gets more Aston-y [w/video]

Tue, 04 Mar 2014 17:02:00 EST

With more and more members of the Ford brand adopting a new familial face, the Focus has been left looking like an odd man out. At the Geneva Auto Show, though, it properly rejoined the family, adopting the now familiar Aston Martin-ish grille that's proliferated throughout the range.
Overall, we're liking the refreshed Focus' look. Aside from the new grille, the headlights have been restyled and now look like elongated versions of the lamps on the Focus ST. Functionally, those headlamps are bi-xenon units, complete with an adaptive front lighting system. Out back, the rear retains the same overall look, which has been smoothed out for 2015.
In the cabin, the second-generation of Ford's much-maligned Sync system makes its debut. Sync 2, as it's called, is supposedly more intuitive than the first-gen system. Ford is promising "one-shot" navigation functions for the system. Saying "I'm hungry," should bring up a list of nearby restaurants. Of course, we'll be reserving final judgment until we can test the new system in person.

Ford, GM to collaborate on 9- and 10-speed transmissions

Mon, 15 Apr 2013 08:00:00 EST

Back in October, there were reports that General Motors and Ford Motor Company were hard at work co-developing new nine- and ten-speed automatic transmissions, and now both automakers have confirmed this joint operation. While there are no specific vehicles mentioned to receive either transmission, a collaborative press release issued by GM and Ford mention that the transmission will be designed for front- and rear-wheel-drive cars, crossovers, trucks and SUVs.
These aren't the first powertrain components developed jointly between these cross-town rivals, either. The six-speed automatic currently used in vehicles like the Ford Edge, Ford Fusion, Chevrolet Cruze and Chevrolet Equinox was engineered in a similar fashion. As is the case with this existing transmission, both automakers will assist in the design, development and testing of the new transmissions, but each will build its own units in its own factories.

Ford overlooks the Big Apple in the 2015 Mustang Convertible [w/video]

Wed, 16 Apr 2014 08:28:00 EST

Ford has done it again. Like in April of 1964, there is once again an all-new Mustang Convertible sitting on the observation deck of New York City's Empire State Building. This has been in the making for a little while, with the first report that Ford would recreate the sky-high publicity stunt coming out a few weeks back.
The process of getting the Mustang up there wasn't exactly easy. A Troy, MI-based company chopped up the new droptop, a necessary evil to get the Mustang on the Empire State Building's only freight elevator that runs to the 86th floor observation deck. But it was slightly more involved than just taking the car apart. The company, DST, built a mockup of the ESB's freight elevators, and then practiced its cuts on a second pre-production Mustang Convertible (measure twice, cut once).
The result of all this work are the images you see above. Yes, sitting in the crisp, morning air of midtown Manhattan, over 1,000 feet up, is this brilliant, Triple Yellow Mustang. Take a look up top for our gallery of images from today's event. You can also scroll down for videos and images of the process leading up to the ESB debut.
