July 27, 1917 was a big day for Henry Ford. That was the day the Model T car was given a brother, the Model TT pickup, Ford’s very first truck. And last July marked the 100th anniversary of that production milestone at Ford.
Suggested retail for the TT was $600 (about $9,607.32 in today’s dollars), and 209 of them rolled off the assembly line in the first year of production. Boy, how things have changed.
