The Kookie T made a huge impression on Dick, and less than a year after this photo was taken he built his own Model T hot rod from the ground up. Photo from The Dave Jenkins Photo Collection.

Fiberglass bodied Model T bucket owned and built by Dick Bailey. Dick saw Jim Street's Kookie T at an indoor car show in Columbus, Ohio late in 1960. After the show he decided to build a Model T hot rod for himself, and in September of 1961 they took the stock 283 engine out of Dave Jenkins' 1957 Chevrolet. The engine went in the Model T along with a 1939 Ford floor shift and a Model A rear end.[1]
