T Bucket Body Dimensions

I have been searching for some time on this forum for T bucket dimensions. Are they just all "what fits you" or are there actually dimensions that I can start my base from? Any help would be great. I have the frame dimensions just can't seem to find some good body dimensions.

Another trick that will get you very close on T-bucket dimensions is to buy a 1:25 plastic model and then very carefully measure whatever dimension you want to know...and multiply by 25. Some models are reduced on a different ratio but it should state it right on the box.

t bucket

the firewall on my steel 16 T is narrower and shorter than my fiberglass 23 T also the contour of the seat back is different . a 27 is entirely different. some fiberglass manufactures have longer bodies .than original. Henry Ford wasn't very tall and the early bodies were comfortable for HIM. . some of the "!5 T " bodies have and exagerated rear seat kickup. some glass t's have a longer cowl for more leg room. Dimemsions on glass ones vary from different conpanies, I did a Steel bucket a few years using a 17 front cowl and a 23 touring doors and backseat. dimensions depend on what you get.
