1923 Ford Model T
Hello, et me start by saying that I realize how stressful it can be to buy anything sight un-seen. I don't think a paragraph &1 or 2pictures is enough to accurately describe an item of any kind, et alone a classic motor vehicle. I understand that you may be in a different state or even a different Country & therefore are unableto come view thisT-Bucket in person. Still,I want you to know everything I know about anything I offer for sale. For that reason, y postings tend to be a little on the long side. I also postseveral super sized pictures. Please take the time to read the item description & view the pictures. If you have any further questions, lease feel free to ask. All will be answered promptly. I have sold classic cars & trucks to buyers all over the world. I have a full 5 starfor item as described&for communication. I also have a 100% positive feedback rating overall. Everyone seems to be very happy with what they buy from me. I'm sure you will be also.
DESCRIPTION- The Model-T Ford is a trueALL-AMERICAN ICON! It was the 1st automobile to be mass produced... ever! The T was a vehicle that nearly everyone could afford to own & nearly everyone did. These cars werea tool that helped build this nation as we know it. Their owners modified these machines to do countless tasks, rom transportation to agricultural. They were taxis, hey were livestock movers, hey were farm tractors. If job needed to be done, hese old Fords filled the bill.
Needlessto say, he Model-T also filled the bill of the 1st HOTROD! Nearly right from the start folks started tinkering with their cars to make them stronger, faster& lighter. The T-Bucket Roadster was born! Strip it down to save weight... Drop in an old FlatHead V8 & you are ready to race!
It's that REAL AMERICAN HISTORY which has made the T-Bucket a staple to the Hot Rod scene & one of the most recognizable cars on the road to this day!
This particular T-Bucket is a one of a kind custom cruiser that is ready to go turn heads! The car is a purpose built Hot Rod. It was constructed in 2004 using a brand new 1924 T-Bucket Kit which included fiberglass body, omplete with RARE, orking,side entry door! (Most of these cars haveno door at all.Makingthem very awkward to enter or exit) Brand new modern square tube frame. Brand newup-dated suspension & braking system. (the original Model T chassis would not be safe on today's roadways). All of the wiring was new for this build. All of the gauges were new for this build. The speedo has a built in odometer which shows that this Bucket has only been driven 2888 miles sincebeing completed in 2004!
The motor, ransmission & rear end are the only donorcomponents used in this build. Everything else was new.This drivetrain is in excellent condition. Since I didn't build the car, can't swear tospecifics. However, do know this much for sure...It is powered by a 350ci Chevrolet small block V8. This motor does not smoke. Does not knock. Does not tick. Does not overheat. Does not skip & does not leak. It runs extremely smooth & is very powerful. It does not have a radical cam or a huge intake or blower. It's very much a stock engine which is what you want if you are planning to drive & enjoy the car. It does have a factory style 4bbl carb/ intake & a factory style HEI distributor. This mild small block will move this extremely light roadster down the street faster than most built big block muscle cars!TheTH350 3 speed automatic transmission performs flawlessly & combined with the Chevrolet 10-bolt rear, llows you to cruise effortlessly at todaysroadway speeds!
Since the car had been in storage forseveral years prior to me purchasing it...Igave the cara complete tune-up. I replaced both front disc brake calipers & pads.Iserviced the rear drumbraking system. I also installed a brand new battery. ThisT-Bucket now runs & drives like a hot rod should! All of the lights, blinkers,gaugesetc... work as they should.
This rod wasbuilt to be a driver. Not a trailer queen. The Candy Apple Red paint job is very, ery nice, ompletely custom & STUNNING to look at... but it is not perfect. If you look very closely you can see a sand mark or fish eye here & there. The interior & rear boot cover was done in vinyl so it can hold up to weather exposure. It has a subtle snake skin pattern & as you can see, ooks great!
The convertible top is in like new condition. It is easy to remove & reinstall.By looking at it, ou would think that the top is pointless but I'm here to tell ya, t is a life saver! When you've been sittingin traffic in the sun all day at a rod run, his top will keep up from being burnt to a crisp! Or if you get caught in a down pour somewhere, he top combined with the tall windshield keeps you dry & moving. (windshield does have 2 tiny cracks on the lower corners. does not affect anything. can be easily replaced as it is flat)

TITLE-I have a clean, lear, hio title on this car. Since it is built on a 1923 Ford platform, A does not require the car to be titled here. However, some states do & if you happen to live in a state which does,you can transfer this Ohio title just as you would any other title on any other motor vehicle. The Title lists the vehicle as being a 2004 model assembled vehicle. It was assigned a 17 digit VIN (which is the current format for all vehicles in the US) An actual VIN tag matching the title was stamped & attached to the car's frame by the state of Ohio using special rivets. This car can be registered & driven on any roadway, n any statein the US, ithout jumping through thehoopsyou sometimesencounter when registering a(kit) car or classic car.BIDDING- Please only bid what you are prepared to pay for this very cool ride. Anyone wishing to inspect thecaror have thecar inspected is welcome to do so, ut inspections must be completed prior to bidding & prior to auction's end. If you have little or no feedback please do not bid without first sending me your contact info through the ASK SELLER A QUESTION link in this listing so that we can speak on the phone prior to you placing your bid. I have encountered a couple of crooks/ scammers here on eBay who have cost me both time & money. This will no longer be tolerated so if you are not a SERIOUS buyer, LEASE MOVE ON. All members with a genuine interest in thiscar are more than welcome to ask questions. All will be answered promptly. If you look at my feedback comments you will see that all of the REAL buyers have been very happy after dealing with me. Many of the comments are from people who have been very happy with classic cars, treet rods, otorcycles & diesel trucksthey have bought from me. I have sold to satisfied buyers all over the world! I know you will love this car! SHIPPING- Shipping costs & arrangements are the responsibility of the buyer. However, have assisted buyers & their shippers in the pickup of several vehicles over the years. I can recommend several shippers who have performed well for buyers in the past but you will have to make your own arrangements with them. I will work with you & your shipper so that they can get thiscar to you as fast & cost effectively as possible. However, o matter where you live,or how you choose to pay,the point of sell will be here in GEORGIA as that is where I live & where the vehicle is located. As always, ou are more than welcome to pick this car up in person. I will be happy to pick you up at the Atlanta Airport or local Amtrac station, free of charge, f you would like to drive this T-Buckethome or rent a U-Haul truck & trailer to haul it with then simply turn the U-Haul in at your local dealer when you get home.
Again, this car was built to be a weekend cruising, ocal show winning, ttention getting custom. Not something that has to stay covered in the garage & never enjoyed! There's just nothing like cruising in a T-Bucket Roadster! I bought this car to replace my Harley Road King. It is faster! It looks cooler! It's more comfortable for both driver & passenger. It stands out! There are countless Harley's on every road you go down. This is something different! You get far more Bang For Your Buckwith this roadster than with any bike! But most of all... THIS CAR IS SAFER THAN ANY BIKE! People actually see you & respect youwhen you are out in this T-Bucket!
Thanks for your interest. I hope you win! JD
