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.

This year's annual Eyes on Design awards were presented at the end of press days for the Detroit Auto Show on Tuesday. Given out for the best production and concept car designs that debuted at the show, and voted on by an esteemed panel of actual car designers, this year's award for best production vehicle design went to the 2014 Cadillac ELR. The 2014 Chevrolet Corvette, which was the show favorite among Autoblog editors, apparently did not impress the Eyes on Design judges enough with its all-new vent-festooned design.

The award for best concept design was actually split as a tie among the Nissan Resonance and Ford Atlas concepts. Last year's winners were the 2013 Ford Fusion and the Lexus LF-LC concept.
The Eyes on Design organization also presented a new honor this year called the Catalyst Award to Bob Lutz, former Vice Chairman of General Motors. Lutz is reported to have given a defense of design in his acceptance speech, arguing that advancements in quality across the industry as a whole have made good design a key differentiator for buyers.
Ford has pulled the wraps off its anticipated 2014 F-150 SVT Raptor Special Edition model, a new variant of the popular street-legal off-road specialist. In a nutshell, the "special" is all cosmetic - there are no mechanical upgrades to the truck and its 6.2-liter V8 (411 horsepower and 434 pound-feet of torque), Torsen limited-slip differential, beadlock-capable wheels and internal triple-bypass FOX Racing Shox dampers all remain untouched.

The SVT Raptor Special Edition, which adds cosmetic enhancements to the existing Luxury Package, will be offered in Ruby Red Metallic and Tuxedo Black Metallic with box-side graphics. The interior upgrades include Brick Red seat bolsters (with black inserts), cloth honeycomb highlights and a console top finish panel.
As of now, Ford has only release a couple pictures of the Special Edition model. But check back later, as we will update the gallery when additional high-res images are released later today, and be sure to peruse the press release below for all the details.
Gymkhana king Ken Block has had a pretty simple car history in his trademark videos, starting out with Subaru Impreza rally cars before moving into Ford Focus racers for the past four installments. His next video, though, Gymkhana Seven, kind of goes back in time.
Rather than the cutting-edge rally racers of past videos, Block will pilot a heavily modified 1965 Ford Mustang, called the Hoonicorn. How heavily modified is it? Well, Block's Hooligan Racing Division, ASD Motorsports and Vaughn Gittin Jr.'s RTR, spent two years working on it, ditching the standard engine and rear-wheel-drive layout and replacing it with a 410-cubic-inch Roush Yates V8. Yes, that's a NASCAR engine, and it produces 845 horsepower.
A NASCAR-powered Mustang would be news in itself, but it's the other powertrain changes made by Block and Co. that really makes headlines. Power is channeled through a one-off Sadev transmission and all-wheel-drive system, meaning that Block has basically married a NASCAR stock car with a WRC racer. ASD also developed the customized suspension, tubular chassis and roll cage. The wide Mustang body is the work of RTR and Block's own Hoonigan Racing Division, while the 18-inch fifteen52 wheels are shod in Pirelli Trofeo R tires that use a specialized compound exclusive to Block.
