    Not a thing wrong with the SBC, but that conglomeration of sheet metal that is posing as a body is the shits!

    No, I'm laughing at the cowl.....sort of looks like a 33-34 Ford cowl.

  7. I think he's calling it a 27 because he used 27 individual, flat pieces of sheet metal to make it!

    That one at least comes a little closer to actually resembling a T bucket. :D

  14. There was another really nice yellow TBucket in the swap meet area Saturday afternoon, and it was priced right, too! ($13,000.00). It was a fairly fresh Spirt Industries build, extended body, steelies painted to match, white interior, etc. I got busy talking to the guy and forgot to take any pics. Anyone else get any?

    Sounds nice, how much was chromed, and would the SBC (guessing) need much retrofitting?

  17. Good guess! Not a lot, it was a really nice looking little car. It had a decent amount of chrome on it. Personally, there was very little I thought needed to be changed on it. It was from up north somewhere, Montana, Wyoming, or Idaho.

    The one I posted in Post #10788 with a rack and pinion has been relisted after some work and a new owner.
    Was 6K, the guy cleaned it up and powder coated the front end (per description). Now at 8K (EDIT, 8.5K). Still a decent deal, considering most start at 12K and up...

    "I purchased this from a fellow club members estate. I was in storage for 3 years and fired right up when I went to look at it. The chrome frontend was pitted and plating was coming off. I removed it all and had it powder coated. 'All lights work it stops real well, new rear rims and tires and a lot more. It has 350/350 9' rear. Please call for further info.MAY TRADE"
