Ford through the ages
By: Dave Mowitz
The Ford 1-ton model TT truck (the TT designation stood for T Tonner) made its debut in 1917. This vehicle marked a departure by Ford from building delivery cars to turning out full-featured trucks. An unprecedented 1 million model TT’s sold during its 10-year production run. The vehicles’ sales represented 51% of the total truck market in 1926. Chevrolet’s share, by comparison, was less than 2%.
