A very nice turquoise T-Bucket from the Crazy T’s 2009 car show with a button-tuft interior, custom dash with beautiful woodwork not only on the interior, but on the pickup box. Check out the unique horn and the big brass headlights that give it a 70s “fad T” look. What I really like, though, is the ’37 Ford tubular front axle treatment that is very similar to that used on the Norm Grabowski Kookie Car T-Bucket.
And, if you know or are the owner of this T-Bucket please comment so that we can give it proper credit.

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.
