United States

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.

Production Ford Escort heading for Beijing

Wed, 16 Apr 2014 16:59:00 EST

Ford's long-dormant Escort nameplate returned affixed to a sedan concept at last year's Shanghai Motor Show. While not exactly a beauty, it showed a clean, straightforward take on Ford's current styling. The Blue Oval said at the time that it wanted to create a model that was stylish "but not one that is arrogant or pretentious." Job done. A year later, it looks like the minimalist vehicle might make its production debut at the Beijing Motor Show.
Autocar claims that the streetgoing version has been confirmed to it for the upcoming show, but so far, Ford isn't saying. If unveiled, the Escort is likely to be produced locally for the Chinese market with a domestic partner. Powertrain details remain a secret, but it seems highly likely that any production model would use a small three- or four-cylinder engine and front-wheel drive. Sales in other major world markets like ours are unlikely, but a test car was recently spotted in Europe.
Autoblog contacted Ford for confirmation, but the automaker demurred, with a spokesperson saying only, "At the moment, we are not confirming any vehicles planned for the show." It looks like we will have to wait to know for sure.

KBB 2013 Brand Image Awards has some obvious and oddball winners

Sat, 30 Mar 2013 08:58:00 EST

The sixth edition of the Kelley Blue Book Brand Image Awards have crowned a wide range of winners - in a couple of cases the recipient of the laurels might say more about KBB users than they do about the actual winner. Compiled from the responses of more than 12,000 shoppers on over the past year, there are 13 categories broken into non-luxury, luxury and truck segments "representing the combined wisdom of the American car-buying public."
The award categories have been revamped this year, with some dropping off, some new ones appearing and at least one other given a new term. What isn't surprising is that Honda won Most Trusted Brand for the second year running, Best Value Brand for the third year in a row and took Best Overall Brand, which wasn't on last year's list of awards.
On our own shores, in the non-luxury categories Chrysler got Most Refined Brand and Buick took Best Value Luxury Brand. Neither one of those marques won anything in last year's Brand Image Awards, while Cadillac, which won Best Interior Design Brand and Best Comfort Brand last year - those awards disappeared this year - went home without a single accolade.

Ford cuts 950 Russian jobs on weak demand

Thu, 03 Apr 2014 08:00:00 EST

The Russian auto market, in decline for the past year and further hit by the declining value of the ruble and recent sanctions over its annexation of Crimea, has forced Ford to cut jobs and shifts at two of its joint venture plants there. Around 700 of the 2,700 total workers who build the Russian-market Focus and Mondeo will be cut at the plant in Vsevolozhsk, near St. Petersburg as it drops to a single production shift. A second plant about 700 miles away in Yelabuga, in the Tartarstan region, will lose 250 workers. That plant builds seven vehicles, including the Explorer, Kuga and Edge.
The Moscow Times says Ford has been especially hit by the market decline, the overall market losing 5.5 percent in 2013 compared to the year before, but Ford sales dropping 18 percent in 2013 year-on-year. This year isn't going any better, with The Blue Oval posting a 21-percent decline through the first two months of 2014. That's why, though the Yelabuga plant builds the CUVs that customers are moving into, even it is facing cuts.
The job cuts in Vsevolozhsk come on top four-week plant shutdown planned so that the paint and body shops can go to one shift. In a statement, the company said, "Ford Sollers remains absolutely committed to the Russian market and is confident it has the right product plan, people and assets to deliver long-term profitable growth."
