Having logged fewer than 8,000 miles since its build, this 1923 Ford T-Bucket not only looks great - aesthetically speaking, it exemplifies the appeal of its automotive niche - but also features a road-ready running condition and an impressive level of functionality. Its light curb weight and eager powerplant make it fleet of foot and plenty of build receipts are onboard to document the expense that\'s gone into making it such an awesome ride.
A Total Performance fiberglass T-Bucket kit sits over a sturdy steel frame to equip this vintage Ford with a coveted power to weight ratio that translates into exhilarating performance. It\'s draped in maroon paint that presents nicely - this streetrod has a deep, glossy shine you can spot from pretty far off. Clean chrome surrounds the radiator up front, with a prominent hood ornament perched above and suspension components that have been painted to match the rest of the exterior for a well-finished appearance. From the open engine compartment, the powerplant\'s headers branch outward before merging with the sidepipes, and the combination of thin whitewall tires up front with beefy rubber in back makes it seem as if this \'23 will be liquefying the asphalt any minute. The fresh condition of the exterior suggests that it\'s seen consistent sheltering since emerging from its build - every chrome fitting is in impressive shape and the contrasting upholstered panel over the fuel cell shows no signs of UV exposure. For shelter in more challenging weather, a removable top is included and it installs very easily.
A well-crafted interior waits inside the doors, featuring a great looking bench seat surrounded by padded tuck and roll upholstery. Consistent sheltering during this streetrod\'s downtime has paid dividends - every vinyl surface inside the cabin is still fresh and supple and there\'s not a tear in sight. One of the decided advantages that T-Buckets like this one have to offer is their plentiful interior room - this is a spacious and comfortable driving environment. The well-prepped wooden dash accents the surrounding maroon steel nicely and harbors a collection of Vintage Reproduction gauges - all of which are in good working order - with a tach mounted to the right to keep tabs on RPMs. A pair of seat belts has been included for an added measure of safety during real world driving.
The substantial open-air engine compartment shows off the 302 cubic inch V8 to perfection, which is ornamented by a pair of Cobra valve covers and a polished air cleaner. Wearing a Holley 4-barrel carb on top, the small block is in top form - it fires up quickly, pulls with gusto and sounds awesome as it sings into the pair of polished Sanderson street rod headers leading out to its sidepipes. Set against the backdrop of the flat black firewall, this combination of top tier components really pops. A smooth shifting 3-speed automatic C4 transmission and a Ford 9 rear end renowned for its sturdiness round out a solid, street-ready drivetrain and the added electric fan ups its dependability in more demanding conditions. Front disc brakes help bring this street machine\'s set of ultra-clean polished Smoothie chrome wheels to fade resistant stops, with a pair of massive whitewall tires on board in back for a vice-like grip on the asphalt. Below, the undercarriage is about as clean as they come.
Standing ready to draw plenty of admiring nods from onlookers while providing miles and miles of motoring fun, this 1923 Ford T-Bucket is one fine ride. Call today!
