1923 Ford Other

A lot of folks thought the day of the T-bucket was over, ut recent strong sales (we've sold several in the past few months) suggest that everything old is new again. This particular 1923 Ford T-bucket nails the look and the feel, ombining the classic truncated Model T pickup body with a smooth-running Chevy V8 powerplant up front.If you're doing a T-bucket, ou need to go full retro with it. That means wild paint, lenty of pinstripes, nd a top that looks like it was penned by the Ratfink himself. All the T-buckets are fiberglass these days, nd this is no exception, nd it absolutely nails that modified Model T look. Finish quality is quite nice, nd you really can't tell it's fantastic plastic until you knock your knuckles on it, nd it captures all the detailing that the Model T offered, rom the framed "tailgate" to the outline of a door on each side of the cab (there are no doors, f course). The bright yellow paint is perhaps the most striking element of the entire car, ut the accents in basic black, ncluding pinstripes and Ford script on the tail give it that vintage hot rod look T-buckets are famous for. 1950 Pontiac taillights, brass Model T radiator shell, nd King Bee headlights are all traditional pieces of the formula, ut each car still seems to look different from the others, ncluding this one. It's a driver, ut you can tell it's been loved.The interior is simple, ut you'll probably appreciate the gray cloth upholstery when you're out for a cruise, ecause A/C is not available in a T-bucket. Strictly a 2-seater, he bench is neatly finished with diamond-tufted upholstery and yellow piping to tie it all together. The upright steering column that is part of the T-bucket formula is topped by a wood-rimmed wheel, nd bright white-faced Auto Meter gauges are spread across the dash. That tall black canvas convertible top is removable, reating the open-air T-bucket look, nd the shrunken "bed" out back houses the gas tank. There's no radio, o heater, nd, ell, othing but engine and the barest of minimums to operate it, nd that's entirely the point.The engine is a chromed 350 cubic inch Chevy small block that's as much as styling element as powerplant. Dominated by an Edelbrock 4-barrel carb and those outrageous headers and side pipes, he look is instantly identifiable and the sucker runs extremely well. Fully sorted, t starts easily, dles well, nd is happy to trundle through traffic without overheating thanks to a beefy radiator stuffed into that cut-down radiator shell. It's backed by a PowerGlide 2-speed automatic and a 10-bolt rear, hich hangs from a 4-link setup. Up front, he traditional dropped axle on hairpins is one of the coolest features, ince you can watch it working from the driver's seat. There are also front disc brakes grafted onto the tubular front axle, o it has impressive stopping power. And while many T-buckets push the limits of tire, his one wears reasonably-sized 215/70/14 front and 225/70/15 whitewall radials on custom chrome wire wheels.Is the T-bucket back? Given how easily they sell, here's clearly a large group of guys out there who still think they're cool. If you're one of them, ive us a call today!
