This 1924 Ford T-Bucket gets all the essentials right with a flashy V8 up front, side pipes, and an overall speed machine attitude
But what really has you hooked on this one is how they paid attention to all the little details that make it feel like the classic machines that they built back in the day.
The burnt orange looks great on the lightweight fiberglass body. It has a metallic element that makes an impression. Plus, there’s a distinctive brass-style glow on the radiator and firewall that’s also repeated on the rear deck trim. It makes for a very vintage style. And there are more classic details, like the carriage-style lantern lights (front & rear), a two-piece windshield, side wind wings, and even a removable soft top. Plus, we know you love the look of the wheels. Part of the allure of a T-Bucket is the extra-wide rear rubber and an aggressive stance. But this one doesn’t forget about the front wheels. You have the small tires on lightweight wire wheels for a look that’s truly reminiscent of an old-school drag racer.
The step plates get you over the side pipes and into an interior with plenty more of the detailed vintage vibe. You have a tuck and roll pattern on the seat, and the seatback smoothly wraps around the sides. The wood-rimmed steering wheel, barefoot gas pedal, short shifter, and a dash full of Stewart Warner Stage 3 gauges are all pure classic cool.
The engine has the right hot rod look with the tall, Edelbrock valve covers, polished details, well-integrated electric fan, and an iconic “bug catcher” air grabber on top. More than just style, you have the substance of a 350 cubic-inch V8 that’s been enhanced with an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, Weiand aluminum intake, and an HEI ignition. And those headers add power as they directly contribute to the thunder of the side pipes. A three-speed transmission feeds the stout Ford 9-inch rear, and those massive rear tires help get the power to the pavement. There’s even a nice set of front disc brakes for added stopping power.
