My grandpaw has one of these trucks at his house. It is some what restored but in very good condution.I would like to know if any of yall have information on these trucks like were i can get parts and info. I also what do yall think the value of it would be.
Texasfirefighter, You have a great project on your hands. If the truck is a 1929 model, then it is an A. Ford stopped manufacturing the T in 1927. Macsautoparts.com is a good source of parts and their catalog has many useful drawings and other info. Good Luck, Lazy.
To spot the difference between a T and A is easy.
Sit in the drivers seat and try and put it in first gear. If there's a gear shift and a clutch, it's an "A"
A model T's first gear is the first pedal on your left, then there's a diamond shaped pedal for reverse. The pedal on the right is the transmission brake.
You either have the year or the model mistaken, I think.
Welcome to FTE Jeremy! The value of the truck would depend a lot on the model, location, condition, and how much someone is willing to pay for it. I'm not a good estimator so I won't throw any numbers out there.
Another way to tell if yoiur truck is a T (or at least the engine) is if the motor has a distributor as one almost normally looks like, or if the spark plug wires all go to a box on the firewall. Model T's had the box on the firewall.
Regardless of the model you'd still get more for it the better the shape the truck is in and could have a lot of fun fixing the truck up. We'd enjoy hearing from you again if you have any further questions or any comments. Working on old trucks for many is a very enjoyable hobby. Good luck!
