Ford T-Bucket 440 V8 1926

General description : MOPAR 440 V8, LONGTUBE HEADERS, 4BBL, TORQUEFLIGHT, CUSTOM PAINT, LOTS OF FUN!!

Like it or not, the T-Bucket is back in a big way. There's surely a reason why we can't keep them in stock, and when they're as nice as this 1923 T, we're quite certain one of you traditional hot rod guys will grab this one up in the next few weeks, too.
The look is perhaps the most instantly-recognizable hot-rod of all time, equal parts cartoon and serious performance threat, and the abbreviated Model T roadster pickup body has a few styling cues to let you know its origins. Painted in bright red with cool vintage '70s airbrush work, this one stands out simply because it looks like it was there when it all started. The paint shines reasonably well and while it's not show-quality, it's quite presentable and does nothing to diminish the fun that the T-bucket represents. It's got a clean, simple, no-nonsense look, as if the essence of the minimalist T-bucket was bared down even farther, leaving just the basics. You'll note the front end was stretched a bit to handle the big block Chrysler V8 and there's a familiar Model T radiator shell out front. Out back, the abbreviated pickup "bed" has been finished with a pseudo tonneau cover, and the mural back there is a familiar glimpse into what makes this hobby so great.
The interior is, of course, minimalist, but the black pleated vinyl is durable enough to survive out in the elements. I suppose it's technically a bench, but it, too, is minimalist, and you'll have to brace yourself to stay planted behind the Grant GT 4-spoke steering wheel. A full complement of instruments in the dashboard show you what's going on up front (well, the things you can't see, anyway), and a slightly raked column makes for a far more comfortable driving position than most T-buckets. You'll also spot a driver's door, which makes getting in a lot easier than most Ts and even the stripes wrap into the jambs, so this paint job wasn't a cheap one back in the day. There is no stareo to overcome the side pipes so you'll have to get used to running alfresco and there is no top. That's the T-bucket way.
A 440 cubic inch Chrysler V8 provides motive power, and since it's out in the open like that, the 440 is dressed up for show. Finned Mickey Thompson valve covers are a traditional touch matched by a towering scoop-style air cleaner and a block painted black to match the chassis, so it blends right in. There's a mild cam inside, an Holley 4-barrel carburetor and Edelbrock intake, and those long-tube headers and side pipes that are part of the T's DNA, so it runs well enough to need all that rubber out back. A quick-shifting TorqueFlite 3-speed automatic drives a narrowed Ford 9-inch rear end, which shrugs off the big block's torque. The front suspension uses a dropped I-beam front axle and a leaf spring to hang it waaaay out there, giving the T a rather sleek look. Shiny Cragar mag wheels look vintage and wear traditional skinnies up front and giant track-style meats out back.
Hot rodding has evolved, but the T-bucket remains a constant. Perhaps that's why people like them so much. At the very least, I can guarantee this one will always put a smile on your face. Call today!

About Ford
Ford, founded in 1902, has arguably changed the history of automotive world more than any other car manufacturer by introducing the first people's car Model T in 1908. They had produced more than 15 million cars by the end of the production in 1927, by which T had become obsolete.

Ford launched the first low priced V8 engine powered car in 1932. 1932 V8 was an instant hit with superior handling and performance to many far more expansive cars of the day. No wonder 32 V8 Ford has become such a favourite among hot rodders around the world with 32 Deuce coupe as their icon.

During the war Ford completely shut down civilian vehicle production to dedicate all its resources to the Allied war efforts (1942-45) They used to build B-24 bombers, aircraft engines, jeeps, M-4 tanks, military trucks and Bren-gun carriers and more than 30,000 super-charged Rolls Royce Merlin V-12 engines for Mosquito and Lancaster bombers as well as P-51 Mustang fighters. After the war Ford cars in the USA got bigger and flashier along with their competitors. In the 60's Ford was back in the forefront again when introducing their commercial hit Mustang in 1964. Mustang was so popular the competition had to follow Ford's example and the ponycar phenomenon took over the US. Over the years the ponies grew some muscles until the oil crisis kill finally killed them off.

In the sixties Ford rushed into international motor sports scene with a fury. After unsuccessful Ferrari takeover, when Enzo Ferrari had cut the deal off with Henry Ford II making the latter absolutely boil with fury, Ford turned to Lola in UK to produce a Ferrari beating long distance racer after. The collaboration between Ford and Lola created the mighty Ford GT40 that absolutely beat Ferrari in Le Mans 24 numerous times.

In Europe, Ford introduced some of the most epic race and rally cars of the 60's based on humble family sedans; Cortina GT, Lotus Cortina, Escort Twin Cam, and Escort 1600RS with the iconic Cosworth BDA engines.

Today classic Fords are extremely popular with enthusiasts and a great selection of classic Fords can be found for sale at www.ClassicDigest.com
