For Sale: 1923 Ford T Bucket in Morgantown, Pennsylvania

Vehicle Description

1923 Ford T-Bucket Pickup

Few cars are as basic, as elemental, as the Model T. Henry Ford's horseless carriage for the masses was never meant to be fancy or flashy, just fundamental and functional. The same holds true for Model T-based hot rods-they seem to work best as stripped-down, bare-bones speed machines. To lavish such cars with conveniences like air conditioning, power steering, and cruise control is to go against their very nature. Thx to Damon Lee Hot Rod Mag.

For consignment, Norm Grabowski would be proud of this creation from a 1923 Ford T Bucket pickup. An open engine compartment, wonderful 1923 design for the convertible top, and a truck bed to boot. Side pipes and some tasteful chroming in just the right spots in just the right amount, and we have a showpiece right here in our Hallowed Halls. Grab on to your leather jacket, and comb in a DA on the back of your head, we are goin' for a wild ride in this "T" bucket

Note: This vehicle is sold with a Pennsylvania Special Construction Title and does NOT have a model year on the title. Please research with your local DMV for proper titling procedures in your country, state, province, or territory.*

Exterior
As stripped down hot rods go this one fits that bill to a T. A fiberglass tub sans fenders, a basic convertible top, bed tonneau cover, wood door sill panels and no bumpers. It's all looking great with its dark blue paint and black accenting for the headlight casings, front glass frame, and exposed radiator and suspension. The blacked out radiator and surround sits on its own upfront and sports a tall chrome radiator cap. Next is the open mill and polished stainless cowl, the bucket and blue painted bedsides. On the way we noticed a like new convertible top in black vinyl and a gray tonneau cover for the bed. This fiberglass bed holds the fuel cell which has some service notations written on the left side. On the back are blue dot teardroptaillights on either side and rolled steel bed edge tops. 15-inch polished Weld Draglite wheels are out there for the whole world to see and 205/60R15's in front and massive 33x12.50R15LT's are on out back.

Interior
Inside a nearly vertical steering column is topped with a small black rimmed 3 spoke rally wheel which fronts a wonderful dark blue painted dash. This dash has a horizontal lineup of gold bezel round VDO gauges, large and small, and these flow out from the center of the dash. In the center of the floor is a Lokar shifter with a chrome mounting ring around the black leather boot which sits right in front of a wrap around heavily padded gray tuck and roll stitched vinyl bench stretching from door to door. These doors are also covered in gray tuck and roll vinyl as are all the side panels. The floors also have black carpeting, all looking good.

Drivetrain
A blingy and essentially stock, this 302ci V8 is topped with a new QuickFuel4bbl carb and the whole works is out there for the world to gaze at. On the back a C4 3-speed automatic throwing power to a Ford 9-inch rear axle. Shiny headers snake together to form a single side pipe for each side. Yellow ignition wiring is all over this engine, as are chrome dress ups, polished valve covers and a "bird catcher" style air scoop. I'm glad this mill is NOT covered!

Undercarriage
Good solid framing supports transverse leaf springs and disc brakes in front, and 4 link with coil springs and drum braking in back. All clean and black steel for the framing and suspension.

Drive-Ability
She fired right up and did well on our test track. I left the top up for my drive but still enjoyed the open air thanks to the huge exposed sides. All was well working beautifully and looking very T bucket pickup like! Eat your heart out Norm Grabowski.

What's the matter with the car I'm driving? "Can't you tell that it's out of style?"
Should I get a set of white wall tires? "Are you gonna cruise the miracle mile?
Nowadays you can't be too sentimental. Your best bet's a great T-Bucket."
Hot funk, cool punk, even if it's old junk It's still rock and roll to me! Billy Joel (altered slightly!)
