    Hi everyone...I just bought my first T-Bucket (one of the items on my 'bucket' list <pun intended>). It is already built but there is a lot of wrenching to be done to make it my own and completely finished. I'm looking forward to working on it as well as driving it.

    In a nutshell...teal body, cammed bored and decked 400 sbc, polished 750 Quick Fuel carb, polished Edelbrock high rise intake, TH350 trans, Mickey Thompsons all around, Willwood disk brakes, lots of chrome! I'm working on getting the brakes fixed (hard pedal) and bolting on the intake and carb...lots of loose ends to tie up.

    Those pics were taken as soon as it left the trailer the day it was purchased. Since then I have removed the windshield wiper and steps/floor boards and added shocks to the front.

    Please tell me that changing that alternator to a low mount is high on the list of to-do's.

    That's too pretty a T to have that alternator detract so much from the overall clean look.

    It will be moved when the new intake and carb get mounted...or maybe when the Roots blower gets bolted on. :)

    Hard to beat the looks of a nice polished blower . . .

    What does it have for carb and manifold now?

    Edelbrock aluminum intake with a Holley 650 carb. I already have a new polished Edelbrock high rise intake manifold and a Quick Fuel 750 carb to mount on it once winter hits here in the northeast. The blower is next year's project.

    Hi Curt64, welcome to one new member from another. I am collecting the parts at present for my build and also am interested in a blower motor. I have never owned one but have admired them for their looks, sound, and HP. I have a tired 350 sbc that will probably come back to life with a mildly boosted blower. At least that is the plan at present. I have a long way to go.

    Mitch, I have to ask if that "bumper" on the front is a requirement where you live?

    That's not a bumper, it's the tie rod, it connects the steering arms. Welcome from Hermitage,Pa.
