This old truck is still running. I photographed this gem in Lancaster Pa. at the train museum.
Ford trucks underwent important changes in 1924. Prior to 1924, Henry Ford sold his Model TT trucks as rolling chassis, leaving the body business to aftermarket companies. This attitude changed that year when Ford’s first factory-catalogued truck was offered as the Model TT with Express (pickup) Body.
Ford’s first truck cab, called (appropriately) the Open Cab, appeared in 1924, featuring a slanted windshield and C-shaped side openings.
