c.1925 FORD MODEL TT PICK-UP TRUCK
Registration No. Not Known
Engine No. Tba
Engine: four cylinder monobloc, 3¾ x 4 ins. bore and stroke, 2,892cc, side-valve (L-head), water-cooled by thermo-syphon, flywheel magneto to trembler coil ignition; Gearbox: epicyclic two speed and reverse planetary, shaft drive to bevel back axle; Suspension: transverse leaf front and rear; Brakes: by hand lever to rear wheels, by foot pedal on transmission. Right hand drive.
This Ford Model TT truck is very much similar to the restored example in the collection 'HJ 5724' offering as it does an open truck cab and flat bed, with solid rear axle.
The Truck has however spent many years stored within a lorry body at The Gables Service Station and has at some time lost its radiator among other aspects. As such it is in need of total restoration and sadly does not appear to retain any noticeable form of previous road registration.
