1925 Ford Model TT Stake Truck

Summary

As paved roads spread into rural areas, trucks became a common sight on American farms. Farmers used the vehicles to haul agricultural products directly to market or to the nearest railroad depot for shipment to farther points. One-ton Ford trucks like this, based on the Model T but with a lower gear ratio, were the most popular during the 1920s.
