Hey, not bad for a street T-bucket that you can take anywhere on the expressway and runs on pump gas. This is not your typical cartoon, unstable, jerky hay wagon t-bucket that can't safely perform over 45 mph. This is an engineered performance vehicle.
SPECIAL NOTE: All of our kits now come as 'Pre-Assembled Rollers'

Hello Tom & Dave!
Just a quick note to say I still LOVE my car after 3 years! You're the best! It's been in parades and all sorts of stuff out here. Thanks again!" Daniel Porjes - Honolulu, Hawaii
Tom and Dave,
What a GREAT CAR! I've owned my Fat Rat for a full year now, and it has been AWSOME! My wife and I have put a little over 5000 miles on "Mickey Rat", and he's never missed a beat. We live in Toledo, OH. and most cruises in our area are 65 miles to the North, in the Metropolitan Detroit area, so we spend a lot of time on I-75. Our Fat Rat cruises the expressway flawlessly. We usually cruise the E-way at 75 m.p.h., and it is stable and comfortable! When we hit the local cruises, like the Woodward Dream Cruise, he transitions to the ultimate cruiser... Rolling slow at 20 m.p.h. without hesitation, ALL DAY LONG! The quality, fit, finish and value have all been top shelf. I recommend NEHR Speedcraft to ALL my friends, family and the other Hot Rodders I meet. Tom and Dave do an EXCELLENT job and have been great to work with." Ron Bradshaw - Toledo, OH
Tom and Dave,
Building my 23-T 'HOT ROD in a BOX Kit' has been a blast. I want to tell you how much fun it has been to build my own car from the ground up using your kit. As you know, I bought the pre-assembly option - I wanted the challenge of building it myself, but having never built a car I wanted some guidance. The You-Tube videos have been invaluable and along with that you have answered every question when asked. The car rides and drives like dream. My problem now is I can't get my wife out of it. I have had more people ask me were I got the car and with pride I have passed them along to NEHR Speedcraft. Thanks again for all your help and great ride." John Ward - Sioux City, Iowa
Dear Tom and Dave,
I want to thank you guys for answering all of the many question I had during the building of my 23-T Hot Rod kit. You returned 100% of my calls and always with great promptness. Everything was exactly as you said it would be. The kit is very complete and simple. I believe that two people working a couple hours a day can be on the road in less than a month. Sure, there will be some detail work to finish but that is the fun part. Everyone who has seen my kit have commented on its quality. The welds are beautiful. Anyone that is thinking of buying a kit or completed car should talk to me. I am proud to be the owner of one of your quality cars. Best wishes to two great guys. Branch Richardson - Greenville, N.C.
NOTE: Branch got his car on the road in 9 months.
We bought a kit and consulting from Nehr Speedcraft to build a '23 T-bucket from scratch at Macomb College. Tom and Dave were instrumental in the success of this project. They helped us tear down walls between our own internal departments, such as Design, Welding, Auto, and Graphics (MACA). They taught us how to build joint large scale projects. Tom and Dave are not only great to work with, but they're great teachers themselves. Because of their past (vast) experience building cars themselves, they know the purpose of every last nut and bolt, angle, joint, etc. You can't ask them something they don't know. And while we threw them a last minute curve ball by converting and fitting a 5.3L fuel injected to alcohol, they worked through the problems and solved them without hesitation. Because of this we plan to challenge them with two more cars, one with a 6.2L converted to CNG and the next using fuel cell technology. Fasten your seat belts! We're confident they can pull this off. Gary Walters - Professor, Macomb Community College, MI
"Building my 27-T 'HOT ROD in a BOX Kit' has been a blast. I want to tell you how much pleasure it is to build my own car from the ground up using your kit. As you know, I bought the first basic NEHR 27 kit with no pre-assembly - I wanted the challenge of building it myself. Every step has been a satisfying experience because of the engineering you guys put into the design, and the technical help you have given me on the phone. You have answered all my questions and sometimes even called just to see how Im doing. If you ever need a reference, have them call me. I know of no better roadster kit." John Ireland - Nampa, Idaho
NOTE: John got his car on the road in 10 months. | See Video!
"I drove this car 550 miles (9 hours) in 110 plus degree desert heat. It is a blast to drive. Great car!" Loren Lemcke - Tucson, AZ
I am very pleased with the 27-T 'HOT ROD in a BOX Kit' I bought from NEHR Speedcraft. Everyone that looks at it loves how strong the chassis is from design and material standpoint. The NEHR guys have always been helpful when I call for further build advice - they support the product better than any chassis builder I have worked with. They know their business and can help you avoid pitfalls. Skip Nydam - ND-Automotive, Ypsilanti, MI
Working with Tom and Dave was great! Tom e-mailed me with pictures and information all through the build process. I really love my T-Rat Formula Roadster! Mike Salvador - Campbell, California
A car like this is something I have wanted all my life. I love it, I love it. John Nelson - Austin, Texas
Hi Tom! I am writing a brief note to you to let you know that the 'E Rat icator" is much more than I expected! The car's power and handling are mind blowing!! The sound and look of the rat rod turns heads everytime I go cruising. Throughout town I get an infinite number of mesmerizing looks and "thumbs up", even from friendly cops! They love it! Its a blast! Thank you for your attention to engineering and detail! Manny Ramirez Miami, Florida
This super-cool 23-T Formula Roadster is blistering fast and runs, drives, brakes and steers like a real hot rod should!!! I have never had this much fun driving any kind of car in my life!!! I am 62 / 210 lbs. and fit comfortably in this 1923 Ford T-bucket!!! Steve Anastos Red Hills Rods & Choppers, Saint George, Utah
What's this Manual-Shift-Automatic-Transmission stuff all about?
If you like manual transmissions, want a little more foot space and comfort, and shifting performance that a clutch car cant touch... this is the perfect solution. View this video and go for a ride (if you dare) with Dave and he'll show you what its all about!

Three NEHR Speedcraft roadsters banging it out in a straight line all day long. Best time of 11.21 seconds at a 117 mph! Not bad for a street T-Bucket that you can drive anywhere. Try finding a typical T-Bucket or even a Cobra that can do that!
