1923 Ford T-Bucket
The original hot rod is still just a 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 cool paint, plenty of chrome, and Ford V8 power. The open engine, open cockpit, upright windshield, and a stubby deck out back, all make the T-bucket instantly recognizable. It has the great raked appearance that looks like excessive speed has pushed back every component on the frame. And with the size of those large rear tires, that tale is not hard to believe. In fact, the wheel and tire package sets the theme perfectly. It's classic whitewalls and polished smoothies Ã¢â‚¬" exactly the kind of vintage hot rod elements we all love. And there's more in the details, like the headlight eyelids, windshield bracer bars, and carriage-style blue dot taillights. And all the added brightwork of this T-bucket is a real standout against the distinguished metallic maroon paint. And as you're looking at all these details, don't forget to notice things like how the fiberglass body is expertly channeled over the color-matched frame. Inside, the gray vinyl wraps around the body tub nicely, which is especially good since everyone can peek at the interior. And it's even color-matched to the rear deck. So while there's a folding top that comes with the sale, we know you'll love keeping this one open to the world. You get all the right T-bucket controls with the upright steering column, tall gearstick, and full gauge package dominating the dash. But take a closer look and you'll see some great upgrades. This includes the grippy modern sports steering wheel and huge AutoMeter AutoGauge tach. Finding a Ford engine in a Ford hot rod is always a nice surprise, so the 302 cubic-inch V8 should make you happy if you're partial to the Blue Oval. Then again, everyone will be attracted to this motor thanks to performance features like the Holley four-barrel carburetor and Cobra fined valve covers that are out there for the entire world to see. It even has some bold elements like the black painted firewall. And speaking of bold, you have to love seeing the polished Sanderson street rod headers that form the long side pipes. They produce a thunderous roar that will make people stand at attention long before they see you. The polished ladder bar suspension front and rear is a great rodder touch that can be seen from the outside. Plus, you have the ease of Ford's stout C4 three-speed automatic transmission and front disc brakes. 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 low-mileage quality build. Call today!!!
