23' t-bucket body

hi i wanted to try and find a 1923 t-bucket body but i wanted to know if there was somewhere i could get one made of metal and not fiberglass. i thought about building a body myself but i dont have welding and metal working experience to do such.

I haven't seen any metal repo bodies but there are quite a few patch pieces and repo full panels available. You will find info on T sites, Tbucketeers, MTFCA, NTBA, google david gardiner dvd, he build his own T bucket and several car bodies, teaches Metalworking in england, and shows how to do it using simple hand tools.

Ebay?

You don't say where you are located, but there are still places out West where old car bodies were dumped in canyons when heavy steel parts were recycled during WW II. I picked up a steel T touring body last year Cheap at a local swap meet.

I know that I have a PILE of Dodge roadster bodies of that vintage about three hundred feet from my house in the neighbors back yard. And I see the steel T bodies at swap meets all the time. I have a friend who built a very cool steel 23 T from a body he had in his rafters for about 40 years.

Henry Ford made over a million model T bodies; no reason to get a glass one...unless you want to. I live in the NorthEast and they're hard to find; but go to Kansas or Oklahoma; get 3 of em and a couple Model A frames...it'll pay for itself. Stick a T body on a Model A frame...boom Model T starter Kit; "just add rat rod". Im kidding; don't build a rat rod.
