The original hot rod is still just as wild and affordable as ever. This 1923 Ford T-Bucket gets all the iconic pieces right, but it still goes for individual style with a slick custom flame paintjob and a powerful V8 that's leading the way.
This is the iconic hot rod to have because the now-legendary shape is the one that launched the movement. This one gets all the elements you love right – open engine, open cockpit, upright windshield, and a stubby deck out back. But looks a little closer, and you'll see a very thoughtful build. Elements like the full cycle fenders, seatbelts, and roll hoop are pieces that you like to see but rarely find. But more than just thoughtful, we know why you're attracted to this one. It has that great raked appearance that looks like excessive speed has pushed back every component on the frame. And with the size of those massive rear tires, that tale is not hard to believe. The aggressive red paint looks great on the lightweight fiberglass body. Plus, it really helps bring out the chrome in everything from the carriage lights used around the body to the side pipes, to the Centerline wheels.
Minimalism is the word when you get into a T-Bucket, and this one does it right. The bench seat nicely coordinates with the rest of the body tub for a seamless appearance, and the black vinyl provides the kind of durability that means you don't have to worry about it being out in the sunshine. This also nicely conceals your battery and fuse panel. Between the driver and the passenger is the bold B&M performance shifter. The full set of Classic Instruments gauges looks terrific with its central placement. But the big Auto Gauge tach mounted directly in front of the classic four-spoke wood-rimed steering wheel is an instant reminder that this T-Bucket has some serious power to offer.
If you're going to be spending all your time behind the wheel peering into the exposed engine bay, then it better be something as wild as this one. In fact, the 350 cubic-inch V8 might require sunglasses if you're going to be looking at it all the time. From the big air grabber with butterfly valves, to the piping, to the firewall, to the Inglese valve covers, to the pulleys, you're looking at one shiny total package. But once you see past the flash, you'll see the substance of a Corvette LT1 motor bored 0.30 over with a 275 super cam and roller rockers with 3/8 springs. It inhales deeply though a Holley 650 CFM four-barrel carburetor and Weiand intake, and the V8 exhales with serious authority out of header side pipes. It's a total package that's rated at around 400 horsepower, which will make this lightweight classic really move. This V8 is backed up by the right components such as a TH350 three-speed automatic transmission, Mallory Unilite electronic ignition, and electric fan. Plus, it has all the right suspension components to keep you feeling good on the road. This includes a three-link front end, front disc brakes, and a three-link coilover rear.
This one is exciting to drive, fun to look at, and always attracts attention. The classic T-Bucket remains the most fun per dollar you can have with a hot rod. Don't wait on this quality build, call today!!!
