Q & A

What's in the Box

The Nostalgia T frame is engineered to provide the ultimate in economy and ease of assembly. It features the same spring-behind-axle front suspension as the Budget T, but includes front shock/headlight mounts. The coilover rear suspension uses traditional-style radius rods and a panhard bar, with all necessary mounts welded in place. If you're looking for an affordable, well-engineered T-bucket chassis requiring only basic mechanical skills to assemble, the Nostalgia T is for you!

Shown with optional rearend and engine mounts installed. This part number does not include a rear axle housing or engine/transmission mounts (as pictured). If you wish to add these items to your chassis, simply purchase these items along with your frame kit. 

All of our T kits are also available with chrome suspension.  This option includes chrome plated: front and rear hairpins, rear coilovers, front axle, front leaf spring, front shocks, steering arms, tie rod, drag link, and related hardware.

T-Bucket Assembly Manual
                        

This manual shows you how to assemble one of our 1923 T-bucket or 1927 T Roadster kits. It's full of photos and step-by-step instructions to clearly illustrate the assembly process. Manual now includes chapters on installing the engine and drivetrain, preparing and intalling the body, windshield, wiring, and even how to install upholstery.

If you're considering a T-bucket purchase, you can purchase this manual first to see what it takes to build it yourself. The manual's price is fully refundable with the purchase of a 1923 or 1927 T kit.

NOTE:    This manual provides detailed examples on the assembly of a traditional T-bucket.  The manual does not provide in detail the assembly of our Tribute-T, but can be used as a generic reference to cover basic concepts.

T-Bucket Stainless Brake Line Kit
                        

Complete your '23 T-Bucket chassis with this pre-bent Stainless Steel brake line kit. Includes all lines, proportioning valve, residual pressure valves, brake pressure switch, fittings, and hardware necessary to properly plumb the brakes on your T.

Notes: Does not work with '27 T chassis.  Also of note, due to unlimited rear axle brake combinations, this kit will not include rear axle housing brake lines, hoses, or fittings.  The kit will include the AN style brake hose to transfer from the rear crossmember to the housing.  The chassis builder/installer will then need to continue the brake line system from that point on to both rear wheels with necessary brake fitting hardware as needed.

Due to the different brakes and caliper combinations, this kit will NOT include caliper/wheel cylinder fittings.

Learn more about the proper uses of residual and proportioning valves and by reading our tech article. Brake System Selection.
