This is how it looked the first time I saw it...
FE valve covers look so sweet on the SBF. You gonna adapt them or replace them?
What izzat li'l motosickle?
I am liking that exhaust. Best of luck!
cool, cant wait to see more.
Out of the corner of the workshop and starting to make some progress.
Hey man , welcome to the Hamb. I was standing watching you drive in to the 08 blowout and actually wandered over and congratulated you on 'nailing the profile' for a bucket. pleased to see its progress here . Rod .
I may have missed it, but where or who did you get your headers from? I have a liking for that style and may try it on my T.
I Like it! Lets see more.
Beautiful! Check out -tbucketeers.com-.
Great story and great car. Thank you!
Another historical hot rod saved.......well done.
Nice work, I love the paint job, your hard work shows!!
Glad to see any color but flat black and that RED is magnificent!
Excellent job! That red really looks good.
See what can be done with an old project.......well done man!!!!
I have to say I like it RED
I liked the blue, but cringed when you covered it with the black; I forgive you 'cause the red is awesome!
every time I open this thread that car of yours looks better and better, nice job
thats one nice engine you got. And that red is breath taking
just keeps gettin better !
A mechanical Pygmalion transformation! Way to go. You had me faked out in an earlier pic when you laid a Y-block valve cover on the engine. I was thinking, "Did Ford have yet another Y-block oddity -- this time in New Zealand, with a front mount distributor, no less?
Also, it seems you're one of the few NZers who has a T-Bucket that does not have the distinctly NZ fiberglass bucket cowl. (What's the story on that anyway?)
Really a great looking car. Thanks for the updates.
I love this car, looks like a blast to build and drive. Can't put too many pictures up.
That has to be the finest T I've seen in a long time. Good Job man.
VERY well done!
There were two types of fibreglass T Bucket bodies available in NZ. One was like a conventional and normal T and the other was a made up one that has very flat sides and square type cowl.
Aaron, the T is looking great man!
Great looking T. Love the B/C valve covers for that historical Kiwi look.
Kool Love it. Love the color. Great job.
Coming along nicely. Those valve covers are neat.
