Good question. Which T Bucket?
In NSW you can't register a home made chassis as a 23 T chassis, it must comply with the ADRs that are current when the car is presented for rego, because it is classified as an Individually Constructed Vehicle (ICV). However, it is an administrative rule that says a car must be registerable in NSW if it has been registered in another state. It's possible that if you can prove the build date, you only have to comply with the ADRs that were current at the build date. If you are looking at the bucket that was for sale here a couple of years ago that had the nailhead buick and was fully registered in the ACT, you could prove a build date in the early 80s, as it was one of the old McDonlad Bros. buckets. NSW RTA are not going to adopt the national rego guidelines where repro or home made chassis are used, so buckets will be considered as ICVs. Alternatively, you can get it registered under the SRC Limted Rego scheme. Contact Manuel Cambourakis or Dennis Campbell for more info on the SRC rego.

That Rod (I think it was called "Something Blue") was bought by a mate of mine and now lives in Kaleen (ACT). When I looked at it, I thought that it would be sad if rego was ever "lapsed" on it as there are several features of the car that would prevent it's being re-registered. Pity, because it is a very well construced and safe vehicle.
BTW: Why is the Buick (425?) called a nailhead?

It was owned by Bob Phillips, who bought it from Gerry DeGroot in the late 90's. Gerry had been driving the car on permits for many years (he did a feature alongside my chopped, channeled and flamed 36 coupe in 1992 for Custom Rodder magazine), but had finally invested the time and money to change a few things that were needed for full rego. The rear wheels were scuffing the body on large bumps, the front tube axle needed replacing as it was binding, the brakes needed to be converted to dual circuit and a few other minor details. He did all this, then put it up for sale! Bob bought the car, made the necessary changes, and was happily cruising from then on. Bob joined the CHRA, came to a meeting or two, then dropped out of sight. Last thing I heard, he had the car for sale. A shame, really, because it is one of the nicest buckets around. Sure sounds nice, too.

The Naulhead Buick was introduced around 1953 as the replacement for the straight 8. They started with 264 and 322 cu in displacements. Later engines displaced 364, 401 and 425 cu inches, but it's the Wildcat 425 and 465 engines (displacing 401 cu inches - the designations 425 and 465 represented the torque these engines made) that were the most popular. They were called "nailheads" because the valves were relatively small and installed vertically in the engine. The best thing about nailheads, aside from their cool vertically installed rocker covers, is that they came from the factory with very lopey cams and sounded quite unique.
