1924 Ford T-Bucket
1924 Ford T Bucket
There aren't many folks out there who fail to recognize the T-Bucket's famous shape: open engine, open cockpit, upright windshield, and a stubby deck out back – all of which have been part of the formula since day one. It has that great raked appearance that looks like excessive speed has pushed back every component on the frame. And with the size of those massive rear tires, that tale is not hard to believe.
The 1924 Ford T-Bucket says minimalism and this one gets it right. 1313 Mockingbird Lane meets Al Capone with a hint of hot rod bootlegging combine to make this “T” Bucket a real eye catcher that utilizes slick custom flame paintjob and a throaty V8 that's leading the way. You will be heard way before you are seen.
A full fiberglass tub artistically painted with a black background overlaid with purple flame then topped with a few bullet holes to boot, covers the exterior. A generous peppering of chrome accents includes modern stage lamps, window surround, flame mirrors (these are to die for!), rack and pinion, springs, headlights, and of course the massive power plant. A canvas top with custom diamond shaped rear windows, in great shape I might add, tops this rolling work of art, all atop a purple frame.
The driver gets a glossy wood four-spoke steering wheel, and the dash houses a full set of Moto Meter gauges. This is framed by some cool custom milled exotic burl wood dash inset into as purple background. A tweed inlay with luxuriously padded black vinyl surround wraps the bench seat. A small skull topped shift knob, and stereo remote, which you will have to crank to hear over the sound of the beautiful engine open to view. Be prepared for plenty of people to ogle your roadster's interior at the car shows.
If you're going to be spending all your time behind the wheel peering into the exposed engine bay, then it better be something as wild as this one. In fact, the 350ci V8 might require sunglasses if you're going to be looking at it all the time. All the polished components (air scoop grabber, radiator, valve covers, hoses, etc.) radiating from the front is pure intimidation. Beyond its great looks are upgraded components like a new ignition system, and a four-barrel carburetor. Oh yeah, and you might have also noticed the beautiful winged Moto Meter radiator cap. We know you love those side pipes with how they boldly exit this V8, and they make a thunderous roar that will make people stand at attention long before they see you. You'll also love showing off the suspension with the tubular front axle on a transverse leaf spring front, and the adjustable coilover four-link rear. Plus, the three-speed automatic transmission and front disc brakes makes getting down the road easy.
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.
