    Thanks Marty, for all the construction shots. A lot of thought went into your T's. Perfect form and function. The new Bonneville car is really slick too!

    Bump to the top with a pic of a T that doesn't require doors.

    I know I'm late to the party, but when I built mine I used flexible plywood around the top edge. It was pretty flexible and easy to clamp up. No relief cuts that way.

    Marty, I have a question. How did you address the floor after you built the internal roll cage?

    Does anyone know where I can find a '27 T-Bucket body like this one? I see plenty of '27 Roadster bodies with the rear trunk portion and plenty of '23 T bodies but nothing solid on a '27. Any help would be appreciated.

    Nope. That's a stretch body from Ron Pope Motorsprts. GREAT guy to deal with.

    Those are all 23' bodies. I'm looking for a 27' tub like this. It has a wider cowl area. I plan on running a TEX T101 4 speed and want a wider cowl for three pedals and my size 13 shoes.

    Since real steel has been mentioned here years ago and on the Bucket Of Ugly thread, I decided to do some digging. Could you put together a complete new body?
    Seems like it's not realistic, but you can get a LOT of stuff.

    Of course, you can try the various Model T and early Ford forums, and there are a bunch of places that deal with these where you can pick up original sheetmetal.

    and of course, the HAMB is a great source for info
