GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this 1923 Ford "T-Bucket"
custom for purchase. Popularized in television shows like '77
Sunset Strip and then taken over with the "Greaser" movement, cars
known as "T-Buckets" have a special place in classic car folklore.
Having a fast car in the 50's was not such an easy task with the
weight of American production vehicles. Using a pre-WWII frame and
dropping an engine in to the simple drive train became a popular
way of finding some speed. The "T-Bucket" usually features a front
radiator, straight windshield, and some sort of custom (and usually
loud) paint work. Simple and fun to drive, a turn-key ready
T-Bucket is great to have sitting in the garage for that nice day
to tear up some pavement.
The T Bucket offered here for sale was built by the owner on his break times at work over the years, hence the name "Break time." It features a fiberglass "C-Cab" body finished in yellow that shows well. The power plant consists of a 355v8 paired with a T-350 automatic transmission. The powerful v8 features an Edelbrock X-C8 aluminum intake with a side by side dual-quad set up with Holley carburetors. Air makes its way through the intake through 2 large Mr. Gasket chrome air cleaners. Spark is dispersed by a Mallory pro master coil and distributor with Accel wires. The engine sounds great with Sanderson street rod headers resonating the sound of the healthy v8. The engine has been dressed up with a chrome kit. The car rides on Weld Racing Wheels. It has 31x18.5x15 Hoosier tires in the rear to keep the horsepower locked to the road. In the front are 185x60x15 Cooper tires. The T Bucket also has Auto Meter gauges and a CD player. This car is ready for its new owner. This car is priced to sell as you could not build the car for this price.

The Pick of the Day is a relic of rural America from the days when an automobile could be turned into a viable farm implement
Branson Auction to feature a Chevrolet-tweaked 1926 Ford Model T Frontenac
Buying a classic car is really not the most logical decision, and there are a lot of people out there who should think twice when considering buying one.
In 1927, the Ford Model T, credited with putting the world on wheels, became the single most-produced car with more than 15 million built, a record it held until 1972.
Vintage racing has been booming as old-car hobbyists, dedicated track stars and well-financed collectors discover the joys of getting a classic competition machine out for sport.
Texans ride tall in the saddle, they say, although this is probably not what they had in mind. The Pick of the Day might look like an odd custom-bodied creation.
