Wow! Those are some nice pictures! How come when I look at the cars they look pretty simple, but when I look at blue prints there's just tons of parts . . .

Is there anyone on the list that's built a car from the CCR plans that could take some pics for us???? I'd love to see "real life" pics of what's on paper!

Take Care,

Steve

T bucket plans.

I built a very nice t-bucket using the CCR plans. I also bought their body, which is well worth the extra money. It comes with a thick floor and molded dash. It was so good in fact, I only had to scuff it to prime and paint. I did extend the frame 3 inches in the front. This allowed me to use a vega steering box / cross steer behind the axle and also moved the engine up one inch for Hei Distributor room and easy access to the transmission mounting bolts, should it have to be removed. The reason for the tube front crossmember is that it is very strong and looked about 99% better than a box tube. I used a speedway 4" drop axle with chevy spindles. This was a very good front axle. I used a 8" Ford rear end with the stock 3.00 gears from a Maverick, It was just the right width. T-buckets are fun but they are cramped for and distance cruising. There is another body manufacturer that I have heard of, Dave Koorey street rods. I hear he has a very good body, although I have not seen one. The T-bucket alliance site is tops for T info. Good luck on your project!

Exercise caution if considering Dave Koorey street rods in your planning. Other rodders have recently experienced problems with this shop. I also do not believe he is still manufacturing bodies. You can do a search on this site or simply Google the name to get more background.

I have been gathering parts to complete my T project. I bought some plans off ebay that seem to be decent and also have patterns to make a few of the brackets that are needed. I had a guy that I know laser cut them out and I still have to purchase some that werent provided.

I bought a fiberglass 27 body from Gas Alley Street Rods in Illinois, he gets them from Old Dog street rods in Missouri. The body is decent but needs a dash, floor, and some tubing for strength. The doors come in two pieces an inner and outer skin and have to be hinged. I have a metal 32 dash that i bought at a swapmeet. Also bought my grill shell from him. Bought a spun aluminum 10 gallon gas tank from MAS.

I have a 4'' Superbell Axle with wishbones and a Pete & Jakes mono spring. 42 ford spindles and juice brakes. Want to make friction shocks. Have a aluminum corvair steering box and still need some steering components.The rear I am using wishbones with a T spring.

For drivetrain I have a 283 SBC I am using 305 HO heads, performer intake, quadrajet carb, comp cams valvetrain. TH 350 trans, 56 Chevy rearend with 3:55 gears.

I have 2x3 tubing for the frame but am waiting till the front end together and mock some stuff up before cutting and welding it together.

CCR T Bucket plans

When I first started to read your pos, I thought someone was looking over my shoulder. About 3 years ago I started a project with a '27 body from Main Street Motors, witch is now Gas Alley Street Rods.

I got most of the same parts you have with the exception of a pair of '32 rails from Speedway. I got the '32 dash with the body and the inner and outer doors.

I still have the car in my shop although it's all apart now. Small shop..other projects. Some time this week I'll try to get some pictures of the body so you can see how I 'glassed the wood in it. At this point I'm thinking of assembling as much as I have and selling it off as a project next summer.

Stregthing the body is one of the things that i am not sure what i am going to do. I checked into taking the body to a fiberglass place to see weather or not they could use a chopper gun to make the body thicker. The big flats he could get at but the areas on the flanges he coulnd't. The guy at Gas Alley used wood and a thick fiberglass mat that they use for surf board material to make it more ridgid. I myself prefer to use steel tubing a little easier to work with untill I can find a decent wood welder if you know what I mean.

I am interested in seeng the picture of you body though so I can get a idea of how you did it.

I thought that the Gas Alley and the Old Dog/Main Street Rod Company were to different campanys. I bought my body about 2 1/2 yrs ago and he was west of the Volo car Museum. Then I heard that he moved and was doing buisness out of his home garage.

CCR T Bucket plans

Found some pictures of the 'glass '27 project. As of now the car is in my storage building. Got a couple of other projects going so It's going to sit for a while. Not much here for body wood butI'll try to get some more pics of that soon.
