This 1923 Ford T-Bucket gets all the iconic pieces right, and the
details show this loves to go for old-school style when showing off
its growling V8 prowess.
The body is a newer/lighter fiberglass unit. But when you paint it
matte black, it looks just like the real-deal Model T hot rod that
came out of a shop class in the 1950s. And more of that old-school
attitude is in the skinny spoke front wheel, fat Weld Racing rear
wheels, classic T-style radiator, and upright windshield. We kind
of like how this one even has a touch of patina on the metal pieces
to make it feel like it really was built in the '50s. But if you do
put some extra polish into this one, it also knows how to show off.
You can see it in details like the clear Harley Davidson-style
headlights, custom welded gas tank cover, and all the pinstriping
on the body. Basically, this is a channeled roadster with timeless
appeal, and so whatever the next step is will always be
The black continues inside. The wraparound bench seat has tuck and
roll pattern inserts that coordinate with the side panels. This is
built for purist motoring, and so you get a classic feel from the
thick wood-rimmed steering wheel and purposeful floor shifter. And
the dash is nicely upgraded with clean Classic Instruments
The engine has the right hot rod look with the triple valve street
catcher on top. Beneath all of that is a 327 cubic-inch V8 built
with a Proform four-barrel carburetor, Weiand high rise intake, and
header-fed side pipes that unleash a proper hot rod thunder. But
while this has old-school style, you'll also notice good modern
upgrades like an MSD billet distributor, steel braided lines with
AN fittings, and an electric fan. The suspension has some cool
details for people to look at, including the four-link front-end,
fortified 9-inch rear, and adjustable rear coilovers. The
Powerglide transmission is there for proper old-school fun, and the
four-wheel disc brakes provide modern stopping power.
This is the T-Bucket with plenty of thoughtful details all over. So
at a price like this, you know it's an irresistible deal. Call
