With our opening door T-Bucket fiberglass bodies, you get one or both doors already nicely cut out with a matching door jamb already molded into the body. No need to worry about saber saw goof-ups cutting your own door. You do your own hinging and latching and save big.

The first fiberglass T-Bucket bodies produced in the 1960s didn’t have opening doors and many T-Buckets today don’t have them. The driver enters by using the rear tire as a step or has a step plate attached to the frame. But for your and your passenger’s convenience at least one opening door is very desirable.

T-Bucket doorsOn a historic note, most of Henry Ford’s Model T runabouts only had one opening door: the right, passenger side. Some say it was to save money, others say it was for safety so the driver wouldn’t exit into traffic, still others believe the left side hand brake and steering wheel would make a driver’s door impractical and there are some who say that with both doors cut and hinged the small Model T runabout body would flex too much. So while the Model T driver side door molding was there it was only a decoration.
