With the emergence of the hot roddding trend,enthusiasts were
looking everywhere for the next cool vehicle to customize. Popular
with 50's greasers was the modified Model T. These extensively
custom bare bones Hot Rods would be ultimately named the T-Bucket.
To keep up with the demand and the rarity of original steel cars,
in 1957 the first fiberglass body was introduced and would change
the hobby for many years to come. These cars have a big following
and were named for their bucket appearance. They are all about
power and simplicity with old school touches. This nice '23 T
Bucket is a nicely built car that has 1,200 miles on it since being
completed. It is primarily used as a show car and is often seen
featured on the back of a custom flatbed pickup (which we also have
available for sale.) The body is painted in a nice gloss Red and
features Black pinstriping. There are a few different TBucket body
styles and this one has the short pickup bed style. This is where
you will find the fuel cell, chrome latching cap and it is topped
off with a nice pleated Black cover. The radiator shell is painted
Red to match the body and has a nice chrome grill. It has rounded
chrome headlights and flush mounted tail lights which work
properly. Instead of the 2 piece windshield you often see this one
has the single piece mounted in a chrome frame. The Weld Racing
wheels suit the car perfectly and are wrapped in Mickey Thompson
Sportsman tires. They are 15 in wheels and the back tires are
The car has a 350 V8 motor and with no hood is very worthy of
showing off. It has nice chrome components throughout and a scoop
air cleaner. It is fitted with a Holley 4 barrel carb and Edelbrock
Performer RPM intake. It has a great sound through the dual headers
and they aren't shown in the photos but it does come with the side
pipes. A lot of the exposed suspension system and steering
components like the drop axle and front leafs are all chrome. It
also has adjustable coil overs and a 4 link. Disc brakes were
installed up front and it has drums in rear.
The interior has been upholstered in Black with a bench seat and
rear bolster. The automatic shifter is routed through the floor and
moves through the gears smoothly. The dash is painted Red and has a
full set of Equus gauges including a tachometer. It has a polished
column that is topped off with a Grant GT steering wheel.
