    I am trying to find some info on tweety pie. Mainly frame length. I have been kicking around the idea of a bucket. And tweety pie happens to be the one I like the most. I was told by the wife that I could buy no more project until I actually did one. It has been a while that's why I want to do a bucket. And I have tons of stuff that could be used for one. Thanks guys

    The plastic kit is pretty well detailed for checking out the frame. You can find magazine feature on it before and after Roth bought it.

    Short comes to mind. I'm thinking that car had a wheelbase right around 90 inches which was short even for a T bucket at the time.

    OOPs I was shorter than I thought, at 84 inches.

    My all time favorite T bucket. I dig the stunted proportions.
     
  6. For many years I was under the impression that Ed Roth built this car,,I later found information that it was originally built by Bob Johnston,,although Ed did stripe it for Bob. HRP
     
  7. And Ed was responsible for adding quad headlights when he owned it.

    And the name was tweedy pie, not tweety pie.

    ER had several cars that he bought basically finished and then striped...there was a Model A sedan, and a really neat '29 pickup truck...that one must have had a mile of stripe on it!
