Ford T-Bucket 327 V8 1927

General description : NICE RUNNING T-BUCKET, WELL BUILT 327CI CHEVY, TH400, DOORS ON BOTH SIDES, COOL!

The T-bucket is making a big comeback as guys embrace the retro-rod phenomenon, but instead of a modern re-creation of a timeless classic, how about a slick 1927 T-bucket that was actually built in-period? For fans of the anything-goes period in the late-60s, this is a wild trip in a very cool WayBack Machine. Under that brilliant yellow paint, there's a neatly modified Model T pickup that has the classic T-bucket look. There's a lot more work here than you'd expect at first glance; just look at the distinct angle of the cab that continues the rake of the bodywork, while the bed is almost horizontal. It gives the car an exaggerated race stance that doesn't detract from its streetability and looks awesome from any angle. Finish quality is quite good, but as you'd expect of a car with a little history behind it, there are a few signs of use. On the other hand, this car has features none of the fiberglass repros can offer, including real doors that open and a cowl vent that makes for pleasant cruising on the hottest days. A Model T grille shell and track-style headlights give it a bare-bones racer vibe. The interior is also a tribute to the 1970s-style build, with pleated vinyl that covers the bench seat and door panels, and despite the unusual dimensions, it's comfortable enough to cruise the fairgrounds without complaint. Refinished wood floors give it an intentional home-built look and the nicely made dashboard carries a set of retro-looking gauges that are a lot newer than the rest of the car. The steering column actually hangs at a comfortable angle, unlike so many of the other T-buckets you've looked at which have tillers like a city bus. The floor-mounted shifter is pure T-bucket whimsy with its grinning shifter knob and I'm afraid that if you want creature comforts like A/C or a radio, this just isn't the car for you. Heck, there's not even a roof! Power comes from a mid-60s 327 cubic inch Chevy V8, the weapon of choice for a lot of hot rod builders of the time. With a 650 CFM 4-barrel carburetor under that velocity-stack-like air cleaner, it has plenty of pull and it's certainly been built for show. Chrome valve covers, alternator, and other dress-up parts give you plenty of eye candy, which is important since it's all out there for the world to see. Traditional long-tube headers and side pipes are a T-bucket standard, with these wrapped in heat tape to not only protect onlookers, but to add to the vintage performance look. Backed by a stout TH400 3-speed automatic and a narrowed '57 Chevy rear end, it's fairly period-correct, although the recently-installed coil-over suspension probably isn't, although it makes a huge difference in terms of ride quality and handling and the car was set up right. The front end is still a solid axle with a buggy spring, but front disc brakes ensure that it's safe on the road. Classic Weld aluminum wheels look like they belong on the track and carry skinny 26x6-15 fronts and giant 29x18.5-15 rear tires. Retro-rods are red hot, and nothing says retro quite like a T-bucket. With this one, you get all the fun of the outrageous T with a nice helping of history on the side. 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
