The Ford Model TT is a truck made by Ford. It was based on the Ford Model T, but with a heavier frame and rear axle, giving it a rating of 1 short ton (0.91 t). When first produced in 1917, the Model TT was sold as a chassis with the buyer supplying a body. The price was $600. Starting in 1924, the truck was available with a factory-produced body. By 1926 the price had dropped to $325. In 1925, a hand operated windshield wiper was added. The rear axle of the TT had a worm drive and crown wheel, unlike the Model T's crown wheel and pinion. The worm was located at the end of the drive shaft and above the crown wheel. The wheelbase of the Model TT was 125 inches (320 cm), compared to the 100 inches (250cm) for the Model T. It was often equipped with an accessory gearbox, such as the Ruxtell or jumbo gearboxes, which allowed the truck to have intermediate gears between low and high, useful for hill climbing.
