This Kandy Brandy Wine beauty sports a 350 ci Chevy producing about 435 HP / 350 Turbo Tranny w/ ratchet shifter / 8” powder coated Currie rear-end. Delicious black leather interior including a CD/MP3 player w/4 speakers. Custom built American Racing Torq Thrust II Wheels, 15×14 rears, and 15×4 fronts. Creating a perfect stance Mickey Thompson S/R tires 29×1800 R-15 rear and 24 x 500 R-15 up front. It took Del and his son Dale Krieger several years to build this gorgeous “T” Bucket from start to finish, and it was all completed in their hideaway work shop by the two Krieger’s at their home in Boring, Oregon.
Del attended Gresham High back in the sixty’s where he met his best friend Retha and the two of them have been together ever since. They have two fantastic grown Boys and four grandchildren plus one great-grandchild. The last time I saw The “T” bucket she had just picked up an award at the Rock-Around the Block Cruise In on the Main Street of Gresham. The week before she took a best of class trophy at the Milwaukie Bowl Cruise In. This delicious ride has won awards all over the West Coast in the past few years including the prestigious Portland Roadster Show.
We at R&R NW Publication would like to thank Del and his family for sharing your world class, award winning 1923 Model “T” Bucket with our many readers through-out the Pacific Northwest as our Featured Ride of the Month for September 2016.
