I recently bought an older 23 T bucket and i was trying to determine what make the body is.It has an unusual dash setup,never seen another onelike it.Anybody have an idea who made the body,possibly homemade? Thanks

You have to give us side, especially, photos. Many folks, including me, customized the dash on their 'bucket. Chassis number, if available - Total Performance stamped theirs (TP-XXXX) on the LH frame rail, just ahead of the firewall. Speedway - mostly, you were on your own, body and chassis. These numbers plus photos might give us a clue.

The frame is completely home made,the outside of the body looks just like any other 23 T,the dash is the only unusual part.Just curious if anyone had ever seen a dash built like this from a manufacturer. No ID tags anywhere on the body.Builder may have built his own body,he built everything else from scratch.

ID body ??
 
u need to re-post with a side view.. that's a custom dash !! there is a very good chance no one can tell who manuf the body. yr is another thing.. what are your concerns. measure the width of your windshield.. i know a total body was about one inch wider then a rod/race body.. but bottom line, i don't really think we're able to id it...

Not that important who made the body,just thought i would see if anyone had seen anything like it over the years. Always nice to have info when possible.The dash appears to be one piece with the body,not a separate component.
