The Cimarron Starlite Cruisers' Car Club proudly feature, great classic vehicles, which belong to the good folks of Oklahoma.

The September 2009 Great Oklahoma Classic belongs to Earl and Barbara Brothers of Oklahoma City. Earl, Barbara and friend Kyle Hiks have built a real classic 1923 T-Bucket that is second to none. I first saw this great T-Bucket at the Bristow Car Show on September 5 and when I came upon it again at the Guthrie Road Celebration on September 12, I ask Earl if we could feature his T-Bucket as a Great Oklahoma Classic.

Earl bought the T-Bucket four years ago and made the decision to go for a total rebuild.  Earl, Barbara and friend Kyle Hiks spent two full years to finish this classic.

Earl and Kyle hand built a 300-horsepower Chevrolet 350 and coupled it to a Turbo 350 transmission.  As you can see nothing was left to chance on this engine set up. Earl likes the look of chrome and it shows with the high quality chrome plating that is everywhere on this T-Bucket. The Chrome Plating was done by Peerless Chrome. The Chevy 350 only has 800 miles since completion.

Quality chrome plating everywhere!

The leather interior, the leather top and leather tonneau cover on this T-Bucket is truly high quality workmanship.  The detail of the leatherwork is really something to see.  The interior upholstery and top were done by Earl’s friend Kyle Hiks of Interior Werks in Oklahoma City. Kyle is a leather craftsman extraordinar and hand tooled all the great leatherwork.  The Rat Fink theme can be found through out this tremendous leatherwork.

High quality leather craftsmanship by Kyle Hiks.

As you can see in this mirrow photo, Earl paid attention to every detail.  The under side of the T-Bucket is every bit as good and finished to perfection as the top side.

The bodywork, five coats of metallic green and twenty-five coats of clear were done by the Paintworks of Oklahoma City.

Kyle Hiks' quality leather work is one reason this Great Oklahoma Classic was selected as  the Pro’s Pick Award out of 2067 Street Rods at the 2009 Southwest Street Rod Nationals held in Oklahoma City this past April.

Earl selected Mickey Thompson chrome wheels and Mickey Thompson tires which gives the T-Bucket a nice classic street rod stance.

The Cimarron Starlite Cruisers sincerely appreciate Earl and Barbara Brothers for sharing their classic 1923 T-Bucket as the Great Oklahoma Classic for September 2009.

Let us know what you think of Earl and Barbara's T-Bucket.
