If you can ignore the stuffed animals, you’ll see a very unique T-Bucket by today’s standards. Not since the 60s and 70s have I seen a T-Bucket with as much chrome plating as this one. From the quarter elliptic springs on both the front and rear suspension to the frame itself, this T-Bucket on display at the Crazy T’s 2009 car show is dripping in plating!
If you’re the proud owner, or if you know the owner, please post a comment so proper credit for this beauty can be given. Thanks.
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”.
