Chester Greenhalgh's T-Bucket Challenge: Let's see them!

Chester’s T-Bucket Challenge: Let’s see ’em!

Here’s a fun opportunity for you to get even greater satisfaction from your T-Bucket build — whether you’re finished or not. Thousands of copies have been sold around the world of Chester’s original How to Build a T-Bucket Roadster for Under $3000, as well as the ebook version and his “How to Build a T-Bucket Roadster on a Budget”. Now that we have the TBucketPlans.com blog as a forum, we’d like to recognize some of the many hot rodders who have used Chester’s legendary plans in their T-Bucket builds.

We recently blogged about Zack Rogers building a T-Bucket frame using the Youngster Free T-Bucket Frame Plans and that post has gotten a lot of attention. Now it’s time for all you guys and gals who’ve been inspired by and followed some of the detailed T-Bucket building information in Chester Greenhalgh’s legendary book to share your results with the rest of the T-Bucket loving world.

We’d love for you to send us some digital photos and a description of your build and how it came about: with as little or as much detail as you care to share. Even if you’re still in the construction phase and sharing what you’ve done might inspire you to get over the hump let’s see where you are. Or, if you’ve only used some of the information from Chester’s comprehensive T-Bucket how to, we’d love to hear from you. Maybe you used his plans to build your own windshield frame and save some bucks, maybe you used his simple fiberglass body wooding techniques, or his plans for utilizing a pickup truck front axle on your T-Bucket — whatever it was in Chester’s work that inspired and guided you let us hear about it.

Just drop us an email with some photos to info@TBucketPlans.com. We’d love to hear from you and will be happy to share what you’ve accomplished with the rest of the T-Bucket world.

Founder at TBucketPlans.com
T-Bucket fanatic since 1957 when my 8 year old eyes became glued to a full page LIFE magazine photo of Norm Grabowski in the wildest hot rod I had ever seen! I later discovered the fascinating T-Buckets of TV Tommy Ivo, Marty Hollmann, Bob Johnston and Ed “Big Daddy” Roth’s T-Bucket inspired Outlaw. I was hooked for life on T-Bucket hot rods!

TBucketPlans.com originated in 2005 as a personal blog extolling the virtues of T-Buckets. In 2009 I blogged about Chester Greenhalgh, the "how to" genius who wrote the legendary, out-of-print “How to Build a T-Bucket Roadster for Under $3000”. That led to a friendship with Chester and our partnership in marketing the updated eBook version of his T-Bucket building bible. The T-Bucket fire burns stronger and stronger.
