I am more interested in why someone would take all those pictures on the shoulder of the
Stopped to piss in the trees, decided to take a few pics maybe?
I agree ^^^^ And I'll add that a big block T roadster just makes you say "Oh, Yeah!!"
There was a young lady near here bought a car looked sorta like that.
Scubbed it down and bombed it shiny black, put on wide whites and chromies, a speedway tri power and some rams horns, cut down glass 32 shell and made a damn cool little car for pennies.
Clean it up, make it drive safely and to hell with whether it’s H.A.M.B. friendly or not. Cool hot rods didn’t stop after 1965.
Me, I’d love to have it. It’s a great car to modify while you drive it. Starting with the square headlights of course. I wouldn’t take it apart unless there’s something dangerous hiding under there though. That’s how interesting cars die, especially if you have other projects.
Check out the T Bucket threads, tons of ideas there.

Seems like a great deal for $3000.
day one took off all wheels put on vintage wheels and tires 16 inch in the rear and 15 inch in the front
HUGE difference already. Won't take long to make it WAY cooler with the vision you have.
Good start, you should be able to sell those take offs in a hot NY minute. I sold the ones off of my Austin in one day on CL. Cool car, I'm jealous.
Just changing wheels and tires made a big improvement, Don't stop now....
sold them to a guy that lives close he has 2 t buckets sold them for 400.00
There you go.....
Just the drive train and clean title are worth that deal.... your gonna make money back selling those wheels too.
Sell stuff change it up a bit and your gonna have a decent lil ride for under $5k you lucky sob
Look around the pics, guys. This isn't @old32's first rodeo...The 'Roth T Clone' is an 'also have...'
Check out Chip's Bucket of Ugly thread...it's about this exact idea - buying a solid, out-of-style car and making somewhat simple changes and ending up with a cool T bucket...
You’re on your way..........keep us posted.
Those wheels and tires are doing it already
You got a great buy on that t-bucket...
wont take much to make it super cool and your own..
Have fun with it!
Good buy bro!! Hope to see it around soon
I like it! My T started out in a similar style, been making lots of changes to suit my tastes. I would be tempted to keep the "coil over" front end, something different and it looks well built...
You stole it!
Wow! Just changing the wheels and tires is drastic improvement.jmho. Snowman
And it runs and drives?? Damn!
I quickly sold the wheels from my T also. Wasn't ever going to use them, and just taking up space in my shop...
today i chopped the grille shell
I see no grille.
