1923 Ford T-bucket

1923 Ford T-bucket in Fort Worth Texas

 Vehicle Description
What youre seeing here is the triumphant return of the T-bucket to relevance in todays hot-rodding world. The basics are still recognizable: an open engine compartment, a minimalist bucket of a cabin, and giant rear tires, but the whole thing has been reinvented and reinterpreted with a 21st century ethos, and the result is very, very / br / The shell is fiberglass and still has all the traditional styling cues, ranging from the imprints of the rounded Model T doors and a stubby pickup bed, but thats pretty much where the similarities end. Its been bathed in Mopar Burnt Orange paint that is quite fashionable today, and the details are crisply rendered. The windshield is still upright, but its only one pane instead of two and it is raked back at least a few degrees. The antiquated Model T brass radiator is gone, replaced by a painted unit that helps the whole thing look cohesive and its flanked by a set of cool crystal clear headlights on chrome stalks. The chrome front axle has been pushed aaaaaalll the way forward to make it look long and low and lean, not stubby and clumsy like its forebears. And out back there are 1939 Ford LED taillights that make it stand out at night and in a crowd. Admit it: even if you dont like T-buckets, youre digging this / br / Lots of custom stuff inside, too, and no its not diamond-tufted vinyl that looks like the booth in an old Italian restaurant. Instead, its tan leather upholstery with seats pushed to the extremes of the cabin to make it surprisingly spacious. Matching side panels (there are no doors, so theyre not door panels) flow into the wrap-around bench seat, and even the bus-like steering column angle has been softened a bit in this T. Also note the painted dash with gold-toned gauges, the wood-rimmed steering wheel, and custom-fitted carpets. A Lokar shifter manages the TH350 3-speed automatic transmission and theres a matching E-brake with a black leather boot that looks neatly finished. No heat, no stereo, no windows, no top, but isnt that the point? This sucker totally makes the basics look good!br / br / The engine is a Chevrolet 350 cubic inch V8 dressed to impress and built to run. Since its out in the open like that, its been drenched in chrome, from the scoop atop the dual 4-barrel Edelbrock carbs to the milled valve covers to the gorgeous headers and side pipes. The block is black so it blends into the background but just about everything else has been chromed or polished. Its backed by a TH350 3-speed automatic transmission, but with so much power and so little weight, you really dont even need three gears. Out back, theres a shiny chrome 9-inch Ford thats so trick youll be glad its so visible under the car, complete with disc brakes and a pair of coil-over shocks holding it up. Four-wheel disc brakes give this T the stopping power of a race car, and with those gorgeous Cragar mag wheels and 195/65/15 front and 29x15.5-15 rear Mickey Thompson tires, it looks like a T should / br / The T-bucket has evolved, and today its not an anachronism. Instead its modern, fast, and easy to drive, not to mention pretty darned slick-looking. If that appeals to you, give us a call now!br/br/
