    After Selling my F100 I have missed having a fun hot rod. So I have decided to build a T Bucket. Going for a traditional style. Speedway body on a speedway frame. Power plant will be a 283 with a 4x2 Intake, Lake Style Headers TH350 trans and 9 inch rear axle. 30's Ford 16 inch wire wheels. Nothing to crazy just fun and simple.

  8. Sounds like a terrific project. My back burner is occupied by a TT frame/rad/cowl and Packard inline 8. Had to move the cowl back 17"! Have fun.

    I’ll be honest with ya, a T-Bucket was once a played out as a Hot Rod. Way too many people made them a little garish or just tweaked the tradition right out of it.
    Thanx to places like The HAMB, Traditional T’s are once again being built. Looking forward to this one, it seems like it’s headed down the right road.
    Perhaps this will get me off my a$$ and will finally get that Bo Jones Modified which I’ve had for years done;). !!!!!!!!!!!
    I’m stoked for you man!!!

    Some the parts I have collected so far. A set of Pontiac tail lights. Stock 283 Pulleys. Accel distributor. Model T steering wheel. Still unsure on the steering wheel may end up with a superior style wheel.

    Hey sorry not getting back to sooner life has gotten in the way of the project at the moment. If you still have the headlights I would be interested in them. They would work for this project.

    "Nuther example.......tried to build it in a more "lakes roadster" style, and wanted to avoid the "Fad T" look.

    Can't believe someone would let a slick car like that rot away, makes me wonder how many awesome cars are stuck in garages.

    The guy I bought it from was so pissed his building got hit he did not want to do anything with this t bucket. It was one of his favorite cars. I got it repainted, new glass, carb, air cleaner, blinkers added a cooler rack . I have put at 3500 miles in the six months I have owned it. Taken it out of state twice. I drive it everyday it is not raining. 20180919_185808.jpeg

    Glad to see it. I plan to do the same when I finish mine, it's going to be hard to drive my Jetta when I have a roadster parked next to it!
