Mine is mounted 1" below the frame rails , the shell is channelled about 4" .
This neat little T has been posted before, here's a few pics I took at Pleasanton.
It's amazing the increase of space and leg room picked up in the interior, like the purple car above, when the body is not channeled. If I ever build another T, the body will be on top of the frame.
I'd add that because the back of a T body curves forward ,you'll have more depth , but the distance front to back ( at the floor) will be less .. Actually less leg room.
Wrong. Legroom is both front to back and up and down. Drop the floor below the top of the frame and gain even more legroom, than just the unchannel.
Seem to remember your car having floor below top of frame. Any picture of you sitting in car and pic of interior. Really like you car, perfect!
i don't think i will ever build, or own a T bucket, but, a friend of mine found an old 60s show bucket. Been stored for years, Purple & white paint, nailhead power, & chromed everything (except the headers, they were white) coolest T I have ever seen close up
Pics or it didn't happen.
Serial offender. My first T bucket - early 90's build and looked no different by 2006.
Or in fact 2012!
My second. Taught my son to drive in it - here making my father chuckle about 12 years ago.
After a couple of non-bucket T's (Tourer and the Coupe) and I'm now starting on another. It's a bit rough but getting there...
I'm thinking a dropped axle and some soap and water would win me over!
Leave the dirt, remove the fenders, add side nerf bars..........and go racing.
Dragmaster also did a limited number of Volksrod chassis.
Do you have the info on that photo ,I remember seeing it , but that's all ?
I think that may be Rickman photo for a HOT ROD feature on Dragmaster
The axle beam appears to be sideways ????? Laying on its side ??
Looks very similar to the "Monogram Big T", but without the top. Is it? I'm thinking maybe not, but can't remember now, did the Big T have a T radiator shell, or did it have a '32 shell?
V-60 tube axle, I believe.
I probably posted this very slick track roadster (bucket) before.
I see it now , reflection on round tube , thanks
One of my mom's friends has a green t bucket he inherited from his mother. She built it in the 60's, I'll get some pictures
Always loved Fred Steeles T Bucket.
“Hey buddy watch your Hands”
Hot date that night...
May have been a better idea to borrow the old mans' sedan that night!
Well back to business!
