The same decade that brought us disco, the pet rock and leisure suits also introduced some cool 1970s T-Bucket plans you’ll want to have not only for ideas for your own build but also some helpful T-Bucket construction tips and tricks. In the 1970s T-Buckets as a hot rod trend were booming and to the meet the growing need for more T-Bucket building information the Ohio Street T’s T-Bucket Plans were introduced.
These 1970s T-Bucket plans by a company called “Ohio Street T’s” first came on the hot rod scene back in 1976 through a few small space ads in Rod Action magazine. This was about one year after the California Custom Roadsters (CCR) T-Bucket Chassis Plans were introduced.
Intended to be a budget T-Bucket plan set, compared to CCR’s more detailed plans, the Ohio Street T’s plans were peppered with misspellings and typos. But we’ve cleaned up most of that. After all, they were produced by a 1970s T-Bucket builder, not a writer.

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.
