1923 Ford T-Bucket
Zoom icon


HIGHLIGHTS: Super cool, quirky, fiberglass T-bucket assembled in 1969! That's right, this one is an authentic 1960s build! V8, 4-spd, topless barrel of fun!

BODY OVERVIEW: The exterior is in nice condition, and this car has clearly been taken care of since it was assembled in the late 1960s. There are some minor signs of age and wear, but overall this T-bucket is in surprisingly good condition for a car that was built to be used and abused.

PAINT CONDITION OVERVIEW: The paint is a fun, funky, metallic green--a perfect match to the 1960s/1970s custom build styling that was prevalent when this car was built. There may be some minor scratches from cleaning and use here and there, but the paint still has a nice shine and is highly presentable.

INTERIOR CONDITION OVERVIEW: The interior is exactly what one expects to see when walking up on this car. Black vinyl, diamond pattern bucket seats with black carpet and a wood dash. Vintage universal gauges adorn the dash, providing insight only into what's important. The interior is surprisingly roomy for this type of vehicle, and the seats, dash, and carpet are all in good condition.

MECHANICAL OVERVIEW: Under the hood is a 1965 327 V8 believed to have been pulled from a Corvette in 1969. The 4-speed manual transmission is labelled as an M20 from the same era, and it seems likely that this combination came out of the same car as a transplant for the T-bucket. It even has a Corvette dual master cylinder! The rear end decodes as a 1956 GM 10-bolt. This T-bucket fires right up and boy does it sound gnarly! With the unmuffled sidepipes and the open engine compartment, driving this car is nothing short of a heavy experience! It's almost like riding a motorcycle! While this car is very authentically 1960s, recent maintenance includes brake master cylinder, clutch master cylinder, spark plugs and wires around 6 years ago.

WHAT YOU'LL LOVE ABOUT THIS CAR: The authenticity of the build, and the classic 1960s custom look.

WHAT YOU MIGHT HATE ABOUT THIS CAR: Driving a T-bucket can be a bit challenging. If you're looking for a casual cruiser that you can hang one arm out the side of while puttering along, this is not it.

DOES IT NEED ANYTHING? The tires are like-new, but they appear to be very old. Additionally, the speedometer and odometer are not currently operational. Remember what we said about the gauges showing stuff that's important?

WHAT BUYER IS LOOKING FOR THIS CAR? Whether you're looking for something fun and affordable, or you've been chasing an authentic 1960s-style T-bucket, this little green monster is a great choice!

We can assist you in delivery through our network of private and commercial carriers most of which can deliver the vehicle to your driveway. We assume no responsibility for damages or delays incurred once a vehicle is in a shipper's custody.
