2011 T-Bucket Nationals Report, Part 5

Stumpy Jordan 1927 T-Bucket hot rod roadster NTBA Nationals

If you’re a fan of the 1926/27 style T-Bucket, and you like traditional looks and dig track roadsters, then you just gotta’ love Stumpy Jordan’s “Stump Jumper” hot rod roadster.

Stumpy Jordan’s beautiful, black Track-T blends classic looks with a high-tech independent front suspension for a super-cool look. It was a real treat seeing this T at the 2011 T-Bucket Nationals because the original car was crashed in the Fall of 2010 and rebuilt in the Spring of 2011, just in time.

On the one hand, the impact of T-Buckets comes from their exposed engines, all decked out for the world to see. But in the case of this cool little track roadster it’s the sleek nose and the louvered, nicely fitted hood that give it that special charm. When it looks that good, you don’t even care what’s under the hood.

Stumpy’s interior sports a tilt wheel and column shifter with an aluminum dash insert surrounding a full complement of gauges — all within a clean, tasteful dark vinyl upholstered setting.

The roll bar, deck lid mounted fuel filler and ventilated exterior trunk hinges are all befitting the track roadster look, while the wide whitewalls, trim rings and baby moons are the perfect accent to the beautiful black paint finish.

By nature, I’m not normally a fan of independent front suspension on T’s, but this setup is done so well that it’s won me over. And the subtle incorporation of rack and pinion steering is icing on the cake.

The track nose and curved headlight mounts blend together perfectly.

What more can I say. The displayed Stump Jumper story is as sweet as the car.
