1923 Ford T-Bucket
It's a super stylish street rod based on what's arguably the most influential car in American history. This 1923 Ford T Bucket is a great looking, well configured ride, with fresh power under its hood that sounds so good you'll want to fire it up just to take a listen. It's an undeniable head turner that comes equipped with features to make it equally at home drawing attention on city streets or waging battle as a worthy competitor on the local car show circuit. Due to their sheer novelty, most T Buckets have a certain cool factor already on board, but it takes planning and execution to take things to the next level. When you see the way the black paint on this vintage Ford contrasts with its chrome suspension parts and sidepipes, how its exterior fittings pop against their dark surroundings and how everything blends together so seamlessly, you'll know right away that this street rod is already there. Its black paint looks strong and if you wanted to take it up a notch, a little elbow grease will get it there. The pinstripes on the radiator cover, rear end pumpkin and surrounding the brake lights are a great finishing detail. A clean white convertible top sits in place for protection against the elements, fitting great and sporting a clear plastic window in back. Take notice of the low-slung stance - it fits this aggressive looking roadster perfectly. A very nice white vinyl interior sits inside the doors, featuring a tuck and roll pattern on the fresh-looking bench seat that's matched by the door and kick panels. Just in front, the floor shifter has plenty of height and sits within convenient reach. The dash area is very nicely laid out, with an assortment of SunPro gauges sitting in the aluminum plated cluster that are easily readable and fully functional that are joined by the SunPro tach mounted on the steering column. The push button starter is a nice added feature. An aluminum 8-gallon fuel cell sits alongside a securely mounted battery in back, stylishly concealed by a white vinyl cover that features the same tuck and roll pattern as that of the seating. When a car features an open engine compartment, aesthetics joins power output as a top priority. The 350 cubic inch V8 on display here has things covered on both accounts. It's only logged about 400 miles since being installed and is running and sounding great, while producing a deep, aggressive exhaust note into aftermarket headers leading to a pair of very sharp looking sidepipes. It's armed with an Edelbrock 4-barrel carb sitting on a Weiand intake manifold to up its power game and receives maximum spark that's delivered via an MSD Blaster 2 coil. The engine sits in front of an eye-catching aluminum firewall and wears a pair of chrome valve covers that blend perfectly with the other components inside the engine compartment, including chrome air cleaner up top and the chrome alternator and aluminum fan and housing just in front. A 3-speed automatic TH350 transmission sits just behind it, shifting with smooth precision. Power disc brakes at all four corners provide fade-resistant stops as this great looking street rod cruises on its set of 15" polished aluminum wheels, outfitted with Cooper Trendsetter tires up front and Hankook Ventus tires in back. A look below at the undercarriage is a must in this case - the frame looks great alongside the chrome suspension components both in front and in back. Very nicely configured and amply powered, this 1923 Ford T Bucket carries all the visual impact you could want in a street rod. Call today!
