The Bird T-Bucket Hot Rod Roadster Plans

Bird Engineering T-Bucket Kit Plans
Back in the 60s every red-blooded American boy had three things on his mind: girls, sports and hot rods!

To feed that insatiable interest, along came a new hot rod supplier — not from southern California, but from the small Midwestern town of Fremont, Nebraska. Who could resist the urge created by the 1965 Bird Engineering ad announcing a new T-Bucket kit for only $169.95: at just $10 down and $9 a month, no less!

And, to show you how easy it was to build your own hot rod on a part-time grocery bagger’s budget, Bird offered their own unique T-Bucket plans, which were very comprehensive for the day. (Of course, no plans are as comprehensive as Chester Greenhalgh’s “How to Build a T-Bucket Hot Rod Roadster for Under $3000: kickin’ it old skool“, but that’s another story).

Bird Engineering T-Bucket Kit

Here’s what the Bird T-Bucket plans include:

  • How to scratch-build your T-Bucket frame using inexpensive 8 gauge sheet steel, rather than rectangular steel tubing.

  • How to choose a rear axle and add batwings for rear radius rods.

  • Using the frame itself for the front and rear spring perches (no additional brackets).

  • Construction of tubular engine, transmission and cowl/firewall/steering box mounts.

  • How to build a cool combination brake and clutch pedal assembly.

  • How to use a ’49 to ’53 Ford front end assembly to construct your own tubular front axle with hydraulic brakes.

  • Simple construction of front axle batwings and front and rear radius rods.

  • Mounting the steering box, steering wheel, pitman arm, drag link, tie rod and how to choose shocks (if you wish).

  • Wiring, construction of windshield frame and choosing gas tank.

  • How to mount a one-piece fiberglass seat/floor/transmission tunnel/firewall support.

  • And much more — if you like seeing how things were done “back in the day” you’ll absolutely love the Bird T-Bucket Plans.
