1925 Tt C-cab Truck With Tilting Wood Truck Bed on 2040-cars
|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.

These days, when you buy a new car, it's not unreasonable to expect a certain period of free maintenance to come along as well. Sometimes this is through the life of the warranty, in other cases a little less. But Ford Motor Company is going beyond those deals for at least one part of its cars. As of now, if you buy a set of Motorcraft brake pads for a Ford, Lincoln or Mercury model, you get free replacements for as long as you own the vehicle. The offer is good at Ford or Lincoln dealers and Quick Lane Tire & Auto Centers.

"We will replace the pads for as long as you own the vehicle," said Elizabeth Weigandt to Autoblog. She did clarify that the Motorcraft pads are generally for models from the '90s or newer. Also, to take advantage of this program, a person must return to the same dealer each time to get the free parts.
Of course, Ford isn't just handing out brake pads to anyone who walks by; there are certain stipulations. First, the components have to be worn down to less than three millimeters to be eligible, and the buyer still has to pay for the labor to install them. If the model is used as a fleet vehicle for commercial purposes like as a taxi or limousine, this offer also doesn't apply; the same thing for racecars. On the plus side, if you recently bought a set of pads from one of the participating locations, you're still in luck. The deal covers parts purchased as of July 1.
When Ford made the decision to end production of the Falcon sedan and Territory CUV in Australia, it wasn't a popular move Down Under. The large, four-door Falcon had been in production for 50 years, and while Ford has reaffirmed its commitment to the Australian market, it's understandable that some people still aren't all that crazy about the Blue Oval's decision.

Speaking to CEO Alan Mulally after Ford's Go Further event in Sydney, Australian site Go Auto reports that the decision was not one made lightly, and that the automaker is doing everything possible to respect the Falcon and Territory's "stakeholders." It's an interesting piece that shows a softer side of a corporation, while demonstrating that Ford is doing everything in its power to make the end of production as smooth as possible for all parties.
Head over to Go Auto for the full series of remarks from Mulally, and then let us know what you think of Ford's handling of the Falcon and Territory discontinuations, in Comments.
With 57 vehicles planned for its SEMA display, it comes as little surprise that Ford has plenty of teasers for its show cars. After showing us what it has in store for the Mustang, Fiesta and Focus ST, now we're getting a look at some of the custom creations based on the redesigned 2014 Transit Connect van.
These nine Transit Connects are decked out to various degrees of customization, but our favorite might be the chopped and lowered Transit Connect from Mob Steel (shown above), which has a similar slammed stance that we see on some custom VW Buses. On the opposite extreme, LGE & CTS Motorsports has jacked up a Transit Connect to make a Cross Country cruiser that we wouldn't mind taking on a road trip.
There are seven other teasers from various companies, and you can check them all out in the gallery above or in the press release below. Ford is also promising a tenth Transit Connect for SEMA, so stay tuned for that as well.
