STRONG 350 V8, 3-SPEED AUTO TRANS, FRONT DISC, SIDE PIPES, BLAST 2 DRIVE & COOL!
With its striking exterior color and sharp array of chrome accents, this 1923 Ford T-Bucket is a great looking representative of one of the most enjoyable automotive niches there is. Thoroughly well-configured in all respects, it features quite a collection of top quality components, including a well-dressed, strong-running powerplant, and it sounds awesome as it revs into action.
This Ford roadster features a stout frame to support a fiberglass body that, combined with its potent engine, equips it with that advantageous power to weight ration so many of us strive for. The solid underpinning on display here has served this classic well - even though this build was completed a while back, it's holding strong and you'll find no stress cracks to mar the appearance of the exterior. The rich burgundy shade it wears is a definite winner and the intricate pinstriping it's accented by needs to be seen at close range to be fully appreciated. With its signature open air compartment displaying a well-adorned V8, a collection of chrome components in full view, and some sizable rubber gripping the asphalt in back, this Ford displays all the hallmarks of quality components combined with precise workmanship. Lantern style lights in both front and back add yet another striking detail to its appearance, and a slightly lower stance than what we normally see affords a road-hugging center of gravity.
From all indications, this roadster has had the good fortune to have been consistently sheltered during its lifetime. Its open-air configuration and black upholstery would make it particularly prone to the ravages of UV exposure and yet it sports an interior that's still in solid condition. The bench seat spanning the width of the cabin has a great looking tuck and roll texture to its cover that's matched by the surrounding vinyl and a little farther forward, the low profile shifter beckons you to put this classic in gear and get down to business. The color-matched dash features a full collection of Classic Instrument gauges whose parchment faces and suitably antique fonts seem right at home here and all of the displays are in good working order. In back, the filler cap sits at the center of the vinyl clad deck lid, framed in wood that's still in solid shape, but could use just a bit of freshening up.
This '23 features plenty of dependable, eager power in the form of the 350 cubic inch V8 on full display in its front compartment. It's armed with a Weiand intake manifold and Edelbrock 4-barrel carb and an added mild performance cam combines with the long tube headers reaching outward to side pipes to provide an awesome exhaust sound. A Mallory Unilite distributor and Accel coil team up to bring maximum sparking power to the cylinders, while an aluminum radiator and electric fan are also on board to ensure operating temperatures stay under control. A 3-speed automatic TH350 transmission and 9" rear end round out a very road ready drivetrain. With thin 165SR15 tires up front and sizable 31X16.50R15 rubber in back, this nicely configured street machine scorches the asphalt on moon-style chrome wheels that add just the right finishing touch to its appearance. Below, the frame is protected by gloss black paint for both additional eye candy and enhanced protection from corrosive influences.
With its open-air form, precisely fitted appearance and eager, abundant power, this 1923 Ford T-Bucket is an outstanding specimen of its beloved automotive niche. Call today!
