    Hi, does anyone have any pics or info on this little car? It has to be the best looking T around! Proportions are spot on! Would love to see more of it!

    Thanks
    Shaun

    The 3/4 view looks a lot nicer than the full side shot, more photos are needed. Bob

    Sorry, I'm not feeling it. Looks like it would be uncomfortable to even just drive around the block. JMO
     
  4. The tall roll bar gives it a dune buggy vibe. HRP

    I like it, but that straight up steering column would make it a bitch for me to drive.

    Any interior shots ? Doesn't look like I'd be able to go very far in it IMO.

    This 'T' makes a SBC look BIG... :eek:
     
  10. T-Buckets need a straight up steering column, I had one for several years and logged thousands of sometimes crazy miles on it !!!! Mine was Black with flames too. No box though, had a large round gas tank on the back. Last I knew it was in Jersey somewhere?????

    That throttle linkage is pretty unique too.

    Dennis sold it to James Hetfield, later bought it back and has since sold it again. I believe it went to Japan....

    No, but I saw it when I picked up a pair of exhaust extensions from him many years ago for my first T Bucket. I thought his car was a '23 and my first thought was that I was 50% done with a car I'd never fit into.:eek: I was very relieved, when he told me about his being a '15. That body looks like a '23.

    Awesome thanks guys!

    It's a cool little day trip car I reckon, good to go get beer in ha ha

    I'm in New Zealand and we have quite a few restrictions on hotrod building, a few years ago we could built em with upright steering now needs to have minimum of 30° angle, has to have lap and shoulder seatbelts and a roll bar, the bodies have to be steeled out which add a bit of strength anyway and some impact protection.

    You have to belong to a hotrod club to be able to run no fenders too, I think I'm going to style my next build similar to this, real low and basic

    i believe your right, now that i see it on the computer instead of my phone. i guess it being so dark and low made it look that way.
     
  19. Those columns were cool when we were kids. They are being the guy on the back of a hook n ladder. I've driven a T set up like that, they are sure not like driving a normal car. You actually rest your hands on the back side if the wheel an move them when you need to.
