VERY NICE BUILD, 302 V8, C4 TRANS, FRONT DISCS, RADIO, VERY NICE PAINT/INTERIOR
The original hot rod is still just a wild and affordable as ever. This 1923 Ford T-Bucket gets all the iconic pieces right, but it still goes for individual style with a cool paint and Ford V8 power.
There can't be many folks out there who fail to recognize the T-Bucket's famous shape: open engine, open cockpit, upright windshield, and a stubby deck out back, all of which have been part of the formula since day one. It has the great raked appearance that looks like excessive speed has pushed back every component on the frame. And with the size of those massive rear tires, that tale is not hard to believe. The light blue has a deep metallic element that looks great today because this one has hardly been driven since being painted in 2008. This exceptionally bright hue makes it a coordinating color to bring out the chrome in everything from the header pipes to the iconic and expensive Weld Racing wheels. Like most T-Buckets today this is built on a fiberglass tub, but the quality is so good that when you race by onlookers, they will think you really did cut up a genuine Model T.
The interior is a lot more modern and comfortable than many of the other T-Buckets you'll come across. The gray vinyl wraps around the body tub nicely, which is especially nice since everyone can see inside this cool custom build. When you step inside, you're greeted to a bench that's vastly more comfortable than what's found in many other hot rods. In fact, the whole interior feels downright plush, and there's new folding roof for when you want it. You even have an AM/FM/CD stereo under the seat. But this is a speed machine, not a complete coddler. So you get a no-nonsense three-spoke Grant sports steering wheel, and a large tach on the steering column. A nice bright mirror panel frames the full Dolphin gauges, and the shiny interior package is completed by a tall gearshift that's always within reach.
Finding a Ford engine in a Ford hot rod is always a nice surprise, so the 302 cubic-inch V8 should make you happy if you're partial to the Blue Oval. Then again, everyone will be attracted to this motor thanks to performance features like the Holley Double Pumper carburetor and Weiand 8020 intake that are out there for the entire world to see. It even has some bold elements like the mirrored firewall, and Ford Racing headers. And speaking of bold, you have to love seeing the long tube headers and side pipes. They produce a thunderous roar that will make people stand at attention long before they see you. Transverse leaf spring front, coilover rear, and hairpin radius rods keeps everything feeling good on the road, while retaining that classic rodder appearance. Plus, you have the ease of Ford's stout C4 three-speed automatic transmission and front disc brakes.
This one is exciting to drive, fun to look at, and always attracts attention. The classic T-Bucket remains the most fun per dollar you can have with a hot rod. Don't wait on this quality build, call today!!
