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 slick and well-coordinated
appearance. And of course, there's a hot V8 leading the way.
Open engine, open cockpit, upright windshield, and a short deck out back - we all instantly recognize the famous shape that launched the custom car revolution. It has that great raked appearance that looks like excessive speed has pushed back every component on the frame. And with those cool flames on the body, it's easy to believe this speedy tale. But this one also has something more going for it. The Green Metallic looks like it was just made for the sunshine in the way it radiates light. Also part of this freshness comes from the fact that there is less than 13k miles on the whole build. And the lighter green of those flames not only look great, but they also provide a nice visual bridge to the white trim for a very thoughtful and uniform total presentation.
Inside is exactly what you want from a true T-bucket. The green and white color scheme of the exterior is continued inside, because we all know you're going to be showing the full package off the world. And the single-piece body tub allows for a terrific white vinyl package that starts underneath the dash, runs the entire sides, and seamlessly creates the bench seat. More signs of a thoughtful build include the classic upright-style steering wheel with vintage wood rimmed appearance. This coordinates nicely with the wood dash. Plus, these are filled with cool SW gauges. Plus, this build has plenty of thoughtful touches - from the matching white top to the AM/FM/cassette stereo.
If you're going to be spending all your time behind the wheel peering into the exposed engine bay, then it better be something as attention-worthy as this one. The valve covers, Edelbrock air topper, radiator, and all the other polished components means you're always going to be wearing sunglasses around this hot rod. When you look beyond all this style, you'll see the substance of a 350 cubic-inch small block V8 that's been bored .30 over. Plus, it has been further enhanced with an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock intake, and performance headers. That last one is part of those bold side pipes that make a thunderous roar that will make people stand at attention long before they see you. Plus, the three-speed automatic transmission and front disc brakes makes getting down the road easy. You'll also love showing off the suspension with the transverse chromed leaf spring and forks up front, the Weld wheels, and the ladder bar coilover rear.
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 well-coordinated and powerful build, call today!!!
