    The wife built her own about 18 years ago. The only change was a set of Excelsior tires that really made the car drive better. A fun ride!

    I've had a 10+ year love affair from afar with this one. It's in the UK somewhere. I have more pics o fit a fellow HAMBer grabbed at a show and sent me many years ago.

    I have built and rebuilt this T peeking out in my head a dozen times. It would be the ultimate bad mf'er. I want to so bad.

    Don't tempt me!

    And If I do, I don't want to hear any of y'all bitching about scrub line and shit like that. Clearly it's would be ridiculous! :p

    16 inch wheels and an 8 inch drop?
    or 18 inch wheels and a 9 inch drop? :eek:
    From the looks, the tie rod would end up at the base of the lights, you could rig up a linkage to turn the lights with the wheels!

    Tweedy Pie clone?? It's certainly along the same styling theme, but Tweedy Pie had a chrome front end.

    Hey @pirate ,
    This, and some of your other pics, are less "T-bucket" and more "modified" or "lakester".
    I'm sure you already know this. I just wanted to say that I am right there with you brother. Thanks for posting them. They are right up my alley.............:):):cool:

    That's the only one I have. If I can find another one I will post it. I'm assuming it's from Australia being right hand drive.

    Hey that's my bucket with my mate Eddie and his brother Bill horseing around in it. Pic would be 1962 with the flathead as it got a 318 Poly Dodge early 1963.

    Hi @Dave G in Gansevoort there's some more pics of the current version on posts 20. 21 and 200. It was definitely homemade, built by referring to early 60's HRM's . Still complete, unchanged and parked in my shed.
