    I'm looking for examples of glass bodied T-buckets that are built traditionally and not 70's style. I'm thinking of putting one together with traditional parts and want to see what others have done. Let's see some pics.:D

    There is a thread going already Called something like "the official t-bucket and touring thread". There was also a great one that got closed down called "sixties t-buckets".

    Why would a thread about "sixties t-buckets" get shut down? lol

    Appearance wise (at least from 20 ft away) what the hell would the difference be between a glass and steel body except a magnet won't stick to the glass body?

    You aren't looking at a "glass body style" but an era T bucket hot rod style.
    Norm Grabowski's T and Tommy Ivo's T woud be about as traditional as any T buckets out there as they were two of the first well known T buckets as we know them now http://theselvedgeyard.wordpress.com/2009/05/24/the-great-1950s-t-bucket-rod-rivalry/

    Grabowski's and Ivo's are badass. I have seen Ivo's in person and it is very well done.
