Yes, they were all over.  Even someone at my high school had one, in Tulsa nonetheless !   Mild to wild; they are cool little rides.  Think they have faded in popularity as we've all grown older & fatter.  I don't see too many anymore.

The 1969 Riddler winner, good looking hot rod. How many of those could you build with the budget for today's Riddler entrants? Drag racing kinda has a Riddler award too, it's the Hemi Shootout for '68 'cuda and Dart Hemi cars. $15,000 to win, all you need is a $250,000+ race car. Well at least you get a trophy and custom jacket too, but somehow I fail to see the point. I guess I'm just an old crank. And stay off my lawn!
I know the basement floor is down there because it's holding everything up. I just can't see it anymore.

The Von T, built by Bill Von Esser in the mid '60's. Von Esser ran a speed shop for years on Chicago's North side, maybe the earliest in town. The car still exists today and looks pretty much like it was built, I don't go to local shows or cruise-ins but I think a relative might own it today. Bill also had an Offy powered Midget that his nephew has beautifully restored.

Well that is enlightening, Jimmy Cimmer (pronounced Zimmer) is the guy that owns the Offy powered Midget, but I never knew he also owned the T at one time. Jim was a long time drag racer and operated a garage doing general repairs and performance work so I guess you might say he followed his uncle into the business.
Say Beppie, I think you should track down a couple of those Hollywood Mufflers for the 3 window. Seriously though, what the heck is a Hollywood Muffler, a glass pack?

The red '27 was a Car Craft project car. I have to pick up a motor in the next town over tomorrow, but if I can find the time, I will try to find the Car Craft it was in and see if it was a Dragmaster as well.

Heres some pics from when it was in Oregon, right after it was built. Later, after he moved to CA, he put the fake 4-71 on it and that's when it was in the front row of the famous R&C Early Times group photo shoot, beside Bob Darrahs '32. Lurker Mick on here owned it for a while after that.

Period magazine photo of another local T. This car is a total late sixties time capsule, it is currently sitting in the original builders basement shop, in the same state you see it here. Probably one of the best preserved, most intact late sixties hot rods in North America. Still has the same 375hp 396 with Edelbrock ram log on it too. Paint is dusty but well preserved, same wheels, same tires, everything. I was lucky enough to get a tour a couple years ago. Two unbuilt steel full-fendered '34 roadsters, and a unbuilt steel '36 roadster there too. 29bowtie, have you had "the tour" at Jims place? Pretty jaw dropping.

Funny story I heard about Jim just the other day. Buddy of mine was a member of a local street rod club along with Jim. The club shall remain nameless to protect my "sources" identity. They had organized a rod run and show, and decided that the club members shouldn't enter the Streetkhana, because it could create problems if a club member won. So moved and agreed. So the day of the show rolls around, and Jim enters the Streetkhana in the pictured T, and as usual, won. I wont say what happened afterwards, I'll just leave it at that! Needless to say, Jim was a little unpopular that day! ;D

Another local sixties T-bucket, this one was restored by the original owners son. It is sort of the fraternal twin brother to Gary Langs old car, they were both built more or less concurrently, and it has a bunch of Gary Lang cast parts on it. It was parked nose to nose with Garys car at ocean park last year.

Heres the frame I picked up today, I am going to re-work the front spring mount/crossmember and the rear spring mounts. Hell by the time I have done that, I was probably no further ahead than just buying a stick of 1.5x3. ;D
Its not bad though, the welds are maybe not beautiful, but good, and its dead square, Its currently 94" WB, but the spring mounts are positioned to go right on top of the rear end housing, I cant get the rear ride height I want with that set-up, with the rear springs on top of the axle and the front spring mount with a spring-over, this thing would sit like a 4x4. I want to mount the coils behind the rear axle.

the more I look at this, the more I like the proportions, the rear axle is a little further back than most of the cars I am influenced by, looks like its centered on the bed. Its really growing on me.
 I have already decided to mock up different rear axle positions before I weld the new spring buckets in, once I get my rear tires/wheels, I am going to mock this up and experiment with it a bit.

'63 Corvair tail-lights, these are what I plan to use on mine. This car is glass, mine is steel, the stock tailgate hinges wont work with these, so I will have to sort that out. I would kind of like to use chains and hooks on my tailgate with upholstery sleeves over them, but I am not sure how that will look without the stock hinges.

A friend of mines father originally built and still owns this bucket here in Sydney. It is now sitting under his house awaiting another rebuild. I would think this photo would have been taken around 1964/65? A very quick car in its day! I was surprised to see it here!!

This one's for jaded iconoclast.  When I looked thru this March '64 issue of Popular Hot Rodding, I immediately thought of your T-bucket project.

Don Audel's T-bucket from Spokane is a gennie-bodied T with a working tailgate and door, plus it has all of the early 60's touches.

I actually have that PHR! :D Very cool car. If you don't have it, I highly recommend John Gunsaulis'  "Spokane  Hot Rodding" from the "Images of America" series of books. Of all the books in that series, I think its the best written of the bunch. Goes into Don Audel and a lot of those guys at length, really good read.

Shrivels up???????????   I hope not!!!!!!  As long as there are young'ns with tattoos and rat rods that weld and turn wrenches, there is hope for tomorrow.  My grandson (32Brainfreeze) spent the day tearing apart a 32 chassis with one of the boys from Brizio's.  As I see it, whether or not he pursues this is not as important as having a appreciation for the hobby and cracking some knuckles on early iron.

That's the Ron Pope front spring perch. I bought one because I got in a hurry and wanted to get the car sitting on wheels. When it got here, I kinda looked at it, set it on the front crossmember and thought "Ewwww". Now that I see it on a car, all doubt is gone, I cant use that thing, it looks like hell. Lesson learned, no more shortcuts. I'll fab something.

I decided early on I really wanted the round top 1917-22 windshield too. I like the look.

Both these designs are very simple; without a lot of stuff.  I like the clean lines.

The top one is a '23-'25 body with a 1917/'22 round top windshield, the bottom on is a low cowl '17/'22 body. Or copies thereof, I think they are both glass.

Thanks Beppie.  Back Radius Rod has a straight top with a curved up bottom rod.  But the front is the normal hairpin.  Steering column is not straight down but at an angle.  Car was pearl white and came out of Coalinga, CA.  Any help out there?

A lot of these buckets had their manufacturer's "finger prints" on the suspension or how the pickup box "married" to the body.  I'm chasing the web and of course this thread.

California Custom Roadsters had a frame like that.

Only a few T Bucket frames had the side rails projecting past the front cross member by 1/4" or so.  Most had it blended into the very  front of the side rails.  This could have been a garage built frame and suspension....  Goal is 62 283 SBC, 63 aluminum power glide, and 57 Chevy rear end with the corvair coils.  I have most of the stuff in stock, and for once in my life I won't need to ask somebody to do $10,000 worth of welding for me.  I think that I need to pull out all of my high school binders and see how I drew them back in the day....then follow my age 16 design!

I already had a "sneak preview" a couple days ago. NICE score Thirty2! How long is the box, I really like the length, looks just right. I was figuring on doing mine at 20".

After looking at multiple detailed photographs of the Alexander Brothers' "Top Banana" which I believe was finished in late '68, and annotations about the origins of that car, I'm convinced that this body was manufactured by Steve Archer and sold through Andy.   Me thinks that this is very good news.

Hello, this is Ray Hernandez. Some time ago I spoke to you about an Andy's Instant T that I own. You expressed an interest in the car for its nostalgic value. The car has been stored for several years. I no longer drive the car and need to move it on. If you are interested in owning a piece of history please give me a call. I have attached a few photos.
