It isn’t easy seeing Hot Rod or T-Bucket where I live and honestly I was never interested about Kustom Kulture world (I did not even know what they was …). Then I saw some models of other international LEGO builders and I was impressed. I like especially the “T-Bucket”, built on the basis of the 20’s Ford T with a custom frame and a big V8 engine.
While I was waiting for some pieces from some Bricklinkers to make a new large MOC, I built my sixties style T-bucket during Christmas holiday 2014. Here it is in plain sights.
My LEGO T-Bucket has the two-seater body of a ’23 Model T roadster with a back turtle deck (inside there is the gasoline tank). A Model T radiator is fitted and a powerful Chevrolet V8 small-block with a Supercharger send power to the big rear tyres. The body and the turtle deck can be separated by the chassis and you can see the transmission.
One of the detail I prefer are the exhaust pipes made by 4 mm hoses. It hasn’t been easier push four hoses inside the “Tree Palm Trunk”… It was fun to build it and it surely will not stay alone…
