Question Help!! T Bucket Frame Blueprints

Hello, I am trying to find blueprints for a model T frame. I am planning a total shade tree build of a T-bucket and any info would be helpfull. I can weld and would rather make my own frame than spend mega $$ to by one. I found a bunch of pictures and drawings but I need to know sizes and angles.

Thanks again

Hi, I got a set of five sets of prints from California Custom Roadsters, one set front axle, second set basic frame, third set Jag rear end, fourth set steering and the last set is regular rear end. I paid $25 for the five sets years ago but I noticed their add in Rod & Custom and they still sell the sets, for about the same price.

back in the early 60's , car craft mag , with the l/a roadster club , did a multi article build up of a t-bucket , from scratch , even had full size bracket drawings etc .. i'm sure i have a copied set , would be glad to fax , or mail you a copy .. i don't have a scanner... also , give some thought to being just a little "different " than every other belly-button car .. we built a 27 style , it gives you more leg room , more comfort , .. we used 1/4 eliptics frt and rear , used about half of a pinto rear spring i think .. e-mail me at jprowse00@rogers.com , or reply..

There are so many different configurations of T-Buckets (wheelbase, body style, engine choice, suspension choices, etc.) that it would be impossible to design a "one fits all" frame. However, if you know what it is you want to end up with, I can draw you an Autocad blueprint. As it would be a "one off" custom job I couldn't do it for $25.00 though.
