Brief History of the Fiberglass T-Bucket Body

We take the fiberglass T-Bucket body for granted. It seems like they've always been around, in abundance and economically priced: the ideal starting point for an exciting, budget hot rod.

The first published reference to a fiberglass T-Bucket body was in the 1957 issue of Hot Rod magazine in the form of an ad run by the Diablo Speed Shop.

Along came Bud Lang and Curt Hamilton, the founders of Cal Automotive, which became the first volume producer of T-Bucket and other fiberglass bodies.
