At first glance, this 1923 Ford T-Bucket is all about being a mean
machine. But as you take a closer look you can see it's a unique
detailed build with Hemi V8 power, four-wheel disc brakes,
well-coordinated flames, old-school elements, and much more.
This makes the right first impression you want on a hot rod
roadster. Not only is the fiberglass body painted black, but also
the frame, suspension, grille, and side pipes for a full dark heart
attitude. But it's not a full midnight presentation. The glossy
black on the body is also the right canvas for the neon-like green
flames that have a bold purple finish. Clear headlights with
integrated turn signals, carriage-style tail lights, a two-piece
windshield, and a proper big rear tire stance give you the right
details for a cool custom. And we especially like the aluminum gas
tank set in a wood stake bed that really sets the rear end
The black interior continues the dark look. It's well-done with a
pleated bench and good carpeting. While a proper T-Bucket has a
minimalist style setup, there are also some great driver details.
The wood-rimmed steering wheel is detachable; the shifter is a
premium Lokar unit; and the full gauges have a green background to
go with the exterior flames.
The engine of a T-Bucket is out there for everyone to see, and so
this one makes sure it's a full part of the build. So the full
engine block is painted to match the green in the checkerboard
firewall and body flames. And just as the flames end with a hint of
purple, the plug wires match, so this is a mean roadster with a
thoughtful sense of style. And more than just looking good, this
has a ton of substance. This is a classic 392 cubic-inch Hemi V8
topped with an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, and a cool Hot
Heads intake. There are some nice supporting components, like the
electric fan, newer wiring harness, and even a Joe Hunt
distributor. And the Sanderson headers feed the side pipes for
added power and growl. The three-speed automatic transmission feeds
into a Currier 9-inch rear end. As you look underneath, you'll spot
a split wishbone front end, four-link rear with adjustable
coilovers, Mickey Thompson big and little tires combine with the
stopping power of four-wheel disc brakes. So it's powerful, and it
knows how to get that power to the pavement.
This is the fun and fast T-bucket with some thoughtful flair, too.
So it's time to get your hands on this flame-kissed hot rod. Call
