T Bucket
Posted by PatrickW on Thursday, May 17, 2018 10:36 AM

The bucket shell came from........

As a VW Aircooled fan since the '60's, over the years I've seen this type of body used with VW running gear and engine. My only problem with building this is that I have no spare aircooled engine or headlights! The wooden box at the back would have the engine in and the normal engine area at the front holds the fuel tank, that's why the fuel filler is there!

Thanks Lil Rebel. I've already used it on a Dakar style, Jimmy Flintstone resin Meyers Manx, that I built two years ago.

Clever little T bucket, Patrick, you did well.  I love those tailpipes, where did they come from?  Thanx, and Cheers.

Thanks nottheband. I think the exhaust 'box and pipes' came from a Ford 1930 woody kit, but I found it in one of my six 'Spares' boxes.
