For Sale: 1923 Ford T Bucket in Concord, North Carolina

Vehicle Description

This 1923 Ford T-bucket roadster is a fantastic build for power and poise. After all, while people stare at the V8, dual-quads, shotgun air grabber, and side pipes on most of these hot rods, it comes secondary to the full-custom color paint package on this unique roadster.

The white paint was the right choice for a build like this. T-buckets were meant for sunny days, and this one has a good gloss to ensure it radiates in the sunlight. It also makes for a great base to lay the custom multi-colored graphics on top. This is full-painted artistry with a Peter Max vibe, so it captures the right feeling for the initial era of the T-bucket. But this is a newer fiberglass body, and it's done with the correct details, like a passenger side door, and it's channeled over the frame. Because classic cars need good brightwork, this hot rod obliges with the correct traditional pieces like the grille, headlight bezel, and windshield frame. And the polished suspension components add an extra degree of bright detail. And, of course, it has a terrific power stance of skinny tires up front and aggressive rubber in the rear for where the power meets the pavement.

The interior continues to show off more of the thoughtful setup. The white vinyl seat has a hint of tuck and toll pattern that also wraps around the side panels for a very uniform look. It also matches the rear shelf. Plus, the brown on the carpeting is a nice complement to the wood dash panel and wood steering wheel. And speaking of the dash, it houses a tidy switch control panel for the lights and ignition. And the VDO gauge set is a crisp and clear layout, including speedo and tach.

The high-polish engine bay is meant to be kept on display. Even the firewall is a smooth mirror-like piece to double the shine! Within the style is also plenty of substance. This is a well-built 350 cubic-inch V8. It's upgraded with dual Holley four-barrel carburetors, an Edelbrock high-rise intake, an MSD distributor, and an electric fan. It makes for a nice V8 that fires up readily, runs confidently, and produces a healthy rumble out of the header-fed side pipes. This is the kind of car you'll want to drive, so there is the TH400 stout but smooth three-speed automatic transmission. The suspension includes upgrades like front disc brakes and a coil spring rear.

You know this is one hot rod roadster for detail lovers. So if you're ready for all eyes to be on you, call now!
