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.
