Our Free T-Bucket Plans were created by the late Ron Young, a Minnesota hot rodder who built T-Buckets for decades beginning in the mid-1960’s. Along the way, he was the beneficiary of a lot of knowledge (much of it passed along as constructive criticism) by older hot rod builders who wanted to help someone with not quite as much experience as they had at that point. In the same vein, Ron put together a set of free T-Bucket plans based on the way he had been building them since the late 1990s up to 2012. Just as street rod builder Boyd Coddington built “Boydsters”, the free T-Bucket plans style popularized by Ron Young is called a “Youngster” T Bucket frame.
These free plans show you how to build a T-Bucket basic chassis because Ron wanted to share his knowledge just as his many hot rod mentors did. We’re happy to be able to help put these great FREE T-Bucket plans into more hands.

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.
