The 1925 Model T Ford was largely unchanged from the 1924 models. So it is tempting to combine the two model years as if they were one. However 1925 was interesting for many reasons which we shall detail in the article below. Ford sold close to two million vehicles in 1925, with about 400,000 being TT trucks.
Major changes for the 1925 model year were few, but significant. Probably the most important was the four dip crankcase / engine pan, introduced in mid July of 1924 right at the beginning of 1925 production. The hand brake quadrant was riveted to the frame with two rivets beginning in August 1924, again right at the beginning of 1925 model year production. The frame itself continued to have four holes for the handbrake quadrant as before.
The Fordor sedan body style received new standard equipment in the form of a windshield wiper, rear view mirror, and instrument panel light.
About the middle of 1925 model year the new 5 to 1 steering gear ratio was made standard on all cars equipped with the 4.50″ X 21″ “balloon” tires. This change happened about December 1924. Cars equipped with any other of the wheel / tire options continued to use the 4:1 steering gear.
The new River Rouge Ford plant began to assemble Model T engines in September 1924. The Rouge assembly plant did not ever actually build Model T cars or trucks. Engines from the Rouge went to all plants.
