T-Bucket on the roll!

Well, me and my son have had it for about 2 years put only starting putting in time on it in the last 2-3 months. As you can see, between the 2 of us, we are making it pretty nice! It was my idea to put the shocks and the headlamp brackets in one. The battery box was narrowed for an industrial battery and channeled down under the seat. We are also going to make a special gas tank that fits under the seat as well, it will kind of be an odd shape as we hope to make it hold 15 gallons or so.

We made the body by shortening, (If that is how you spell it ) , a '23 ford touring car body. I belive it is an orginal body and trunk as well. I hope to keep the trunk clear as my main goal is to make it a daily driveable car.

I am sorry for the pour pictures, as I took them with my phone, and I hope to get the camera back from my daughter so I can get some better ones up here soon. I will keep you guys updated, hopefully, and will try to be on at least once a day.

I really like the idea of with the lights on top of the shock mounts. It's hard to make something like this original, but that's a touch that's definetely new on me.

What sort of look are you going for? How stripped down? What sort of paint (or primer )?


Regardless of direction, it looks like you've got a nice foundation, and an extra set of hands which is always nice.

well, the frame and body will be canary yellow , most of the engine will be chromed, and what I cant chrome will be stainless, or polished I hope. Thanks for the comment and yeah. My boy isnt too happy with how much time I am spending on it, but he grins and bears it. He is enjoying though and has come up with some great ideas himself! (He thought it would be cool to have heat vents in the form of louvers!)

Here is a carb tech tip for T-buckets:

If at all possible, try to get the carberater level. It would also be nice to put a slight upward angle. This allows for proper fuel distribution in the engine.

I have found this is easy to do and will help performace. Also I have mounted the radiator and will get some pics up this week. If I dont ruin the computer first .

Looking Great, I plan to use a toolbox ,mounted in the bed of the little RPU I'm building, as a battery box fuel filler and small storage compartment. Just gotta find out what the hoops are that I'll have to jump through for titling/licensing a homebuilt vehicle in WV

Thank you guys for all the great sites you have provided me with. Although my daughter broke the camera, my son tells me he can fix it, but it is going to take awhile yet. So sorry for the lack of pictures of late, but I should be gettting some up here in 4-6 days. If my son cant fix it, I will just have to go buy another one. I have made progress on it and will be telling you guys about it when I have some more time, now it is off to work for me!
