Mine is very short, if you need me to measure it let me know and I will be near it next week. Check out the pictures in my photo album to see how short it is.

Snod's T is about the same as the T I sold this spring. Way too short for a six footer, one of the reasons I sold it, it was terribly uncomfortable for anything farther than a 10 mile run. Take this into consideration, it will also help when and if you sell. Snod, that's a cool bucket. They are a blast to drive, my knees were in my chest when I drove mine, ankles turned in weird, at 52 years old it didn't take long for aches and pains to set in. Dan

Wheelbase suggestion

I am building mine with a 106" as that is about the classic wheelbase..also allows the engine to be set forward a bit and getting the bellhousing out of the footwell allowing more room for the 6'+ guys..

Thanks for the kind words dinger. It is quite short. It would be absolutely impossible for me to run a blower its that short! I run an electric fan and the bolts that hold my water pump pulley on are about 1/4" from the back of my electric fan. In my opinion if you like the look of the longer bucket, go for it. Mine was built by my father and left to me when he passed away, but I am currently building another one. My current project will be extremely long, its going to have a 5 foot model T bed behind the bucket!

Gr8lite let me know if you want me to measure mine next week. I'll be home Wednesday night so I could do that for you.

The T Track Car is 103 1/4", strangely same as a Model A

The overall length is 138", that is from the front tread face of the front tires to the back surface of the turtle deck. The Track Car is a 23 T Roadster with a one-piece racecar nose and hood up front and a turtle deck out back.
