In the 1960s T Buckets were gaining in popularity and companies popped up all over to capitalize on that by selling T-Bucket kits. Following on the success of Bird Engineering, another T-Bucket kit producer came forth from the plains of Nebraska: Allied Industries International.
The first time I saw anything about Allied Industries’ T-Buckets was their March, 1969 ad in Car Craft magazine. Allied called their T-Bucket kit car the Ridgerunner. The basic kit was all of $495! It included the frame, complete front suspension, steering, radius rods, rear spring, radiator, headlights, windshield supports and fiberglass T-Bucket body with pickup bed. For $25 more you could get it in a metalflake finish!
