Vehicle Description

T-Buckets were the first cars to be modified and started the custom car scene almost a hundred years ago. But they didn't build them quite this way back then. This one takes full advantage of modern chroming technology to make a statement and they did a heck of good job making it do exactly that. Check it out.


The shape is timeless, simple, minimalist. It's easy to see where the "bucket" term comes from, especially when viewing it from the side. Removing the hood and fenders and pushing the front axle all the way forward gives the car that long, lean and low look. From these traditional styling cues, the build gets more personal. This one is meant to be flashy. There is chrome everywhere and it looks great! The body of the car was painted in this beautiful shade of Red, but not before some very skilled body men had all the panels properly prepped and adjusted first. As if the engine didn't have enough chrome to begin with, the firewall is polished to a mirror shine to reflect it back and multiply it. The drop axle and leaf spring sitting way out front also shine like diamonds and the differentiated wheels front and rear add to the show too.


Open the door and slide on in to the comfortable bench seat. It is pleated on the seating surfaces with smooth support under your knees and smooth padding trimming it out all the way around the back and sides, including across the top of the doors. Go on, get comfortable. Then grab the leather wrapped four-spoke steering wheel and get ready to roll. When you fire it up, the engine gauges that monitor fuel, water temp, oil pressure, voltage and fuel will come to life. And once you drop it in gear with the floor mounted shifter for the automatic transmission, the speedo will show how badly you are behaving. To keep the look period-correct and simple, but in the pursuit of some nice tunes to cruise with, a Sony FM/CD and iPod compatible stereo has been mounted under the front edge of the seat for your listening pleasure.


You may, however, want to leave the radio off at times and listen to the awesome sound of that engine pounding the tunes out through those headers and side pipes. Those glorious sounds start up top with giant air horns feeding into twin 4-barrel Edelbrock carbs that handle the mixing duties and send it to the heart of the motor through a polished-up tunnel ram intake. Chrome valve covers add a splash of flash as does the alternator, water pump, billet pulleys and brackets, and... well, you get the idea. An aluminum radiator keeps things running cool and the power flows back through a 3-speed automatic transmission to a solid rear axle with 3.73 gears. As you would expect, the underside of this T-Bucket is mirror worthy too. So, go ahead, get 'em lined up to show the off the suspension components as well as the polished-up oil pans and bell housing. The rubber meets the road through 29x12.50/15 Mickey Thompson tires mounted on Cragar SS wheels in the back and 26x7.50/15s in the front mounted on Rocket Racing wheels in the front.


Come on down and check out this sweet T-Bucket. And you may want to be sure to have your sunglasses with you if the sun is out.
