Yes its a total chassis. I had built one already and kind of knew my way around it to customize it for the truck! Its the 27' chassis.. I dont have any way to weld in my shop so i knew i could make all the changes that i needed to without welding, also knew how wide it was going to be when done to fit in the shop! Shop is small!! 3 - 8 by 10 out buildings bolted together and middle walls cut out!! LOL. Sorry BC maybe next time we can get the chassis from you! Well pics are in your mail box! Have a great week and i will talk to you later on! If you are in okc sometime holler at me, you are more then welcome to come by and we will get the cars out and play for awhile!!

Gotta have something with doors and windows for bad weather. Not sure what engine I'll put on the bucket though. I have another cadillac engine so??? I put a tunnelram on my Fiat chassis engine. Worked out ok. I made adapters to put the purty Ford Racing valve covers on it. That'll make for confusion. LOL
Jackie
let me know when you are going after that body at rod n race. you might be going right past my door.

My current build is a '27 roadster. it's up to the roller stage and about ready to blow apart for the grinding and filling (elbow grease) phase. I've frenched 6 '59 caddy tail lights in the rear and am having a steel decklid rolled that's just about complete then it's off to the louver press for somewhere around 200 louvers to be punched in it. American "D" mags with big & littles and plenty of chrome. should look pretty kool.

Well, you'll be able to upload pic galleries here very soon. I was going to install it yesterday, but was told by the mod author that a new version would be out before the weekend's up. So sit tight.

I'm building a 23 T Spirit kit. Started project Oct'05. It took about 5 months to assemble then took it all apart for final assembly. Frame,engine,trans,fuel tank are all painted and together. I have rearend in final prep so I can have rolling chassis. I'll have all finished by spring. Motor is 475 BBC with tunnel-ram,shop thinks it'll be close to 600hp. Wheelbase is longer than usual at 115in which Spirit built for me,has that old school Gasser look all stretched out,plus wheelie bars out back. I will be down for THE BASH with it.

Howdy from South Mississippi. I've had my '25 T-Bucket for around 2 years or so. Was supposed to have it done for Cruisin' the Coast in October of 2005, but we had a mishap named Hurricane Katrina. My shop and Bucket survived, it just slowed progress down a lot. We have since built a home (moved in June of '06), got through Christmas and now it's time to get back on the Bucket -- YEEHAW! This is my first reply to y'all's new website so bear with me please. I really like the site and am pumped about being a member and will send some pics as soon as I can figure out how. Thanks, Bikertrash (real name is Jimmy Johnson)

Cool If you look far enough to the west, just past the horizon.......

G'day,
just found this site last nite.
I am building a '60's style LWB '23 T with a twist.
Planned ride height will be about 5" ground clearance, "long and low"
Grille shell to be sectioned, body lengthened 8"and widened 2", carson top etc. etc.
Proposed mill, 283 chev with glide and 8"
There are numerous things I have yet to do but all good things take time!
Here is a link to our Hot Rod site here in NZ where thoughts and opinions etc. are posted about T Buckets on the Tech. thread.

http://www.nz-hotrod.com/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=255
Also a very early stages mock-up which has in fact changed already!


I will drop in from time to time when the opportunity prevails.
I look forward to seeing, learning and sharing the gradual progression of this forum and the various rides members create and update.
'til the next time, all the best.
Cheers,
Cruisin'

Hello Gentlemen,

My name is Thomas and I just purchased a Spirit 23 T 6-25-07. I'm already looking out the window waiting for the truck. I'm 64 going on 16. I'm just trading one toy for another, sold my Ranger bass boat to purchase a T-Bucket. Hope to be going to one of those Buckethead Bash's in the next couple of years.

Default Welcome Thomas

The thing about the world of the Buckethead is that it is easer to get in than it is to get out. The funny thing is the Bucket will become secondary to the friendships that you can develop. There are a lot of great people in this hobby and we created this site not only to help you build the the bucket of your dreams but also introduce you to people who may become friends for a life time. It's all about family so if I mite add just a little to what Mic-T said. Welcome to the world of the Buckethead family.

Default my 27t

well, I picked up my 27t from BOB at spirit about a month ago, got it home , started test fitting parts, with all my buddies coming by to look. It was looking to be a great ride. The next day, the wifey decides to call it quits and now the house is for sale. I moved my 27 to my dads shop in Vernon, Texas ,and now he gets to work on it while I live and work in the drudgery of Dallas Tx...life rolls on...

I checked out your photo gallerie and love those tires and wheels. May I ask what wheels and tires do you have?
