This 1925 Ford T-Bucket has a well-done style with extra details, like newer components and a nicely finished interior.

But of course, it never loves that wild child spirit of a big tire machine with a growling dual-quad V8 up front.

This fiberglass body roadster has a sense of added style. Sure the deep color will have plenty calling it a Purple People Eater, but there’s also more in the details. There’s serious shine coming off the brightwork in areas like the front suspension, windshield supports, and visible rear diff covers. Even the headlights and taillights are new for a crisp look. Plus, those straight pipes and Weld Racing wheels show off a polished performance side. And while you would expect brightwork on the grille, it instead has a classic-style and aged mesh screen that feels like it pays tribute to the Model Ts that inspired this creation. And you’ll even spot some tan pinstriping that looks tasteful against the purple and coordinates with the interior.

A roadster like this is meant to be open to the world, and so this one takes full advantage. That’s why you not only see the pinstriping coordinating with the interior, but the tank cover matches the upholstery, too. The seats have a terrific look with individual buckets with tweed-like inserts. Nice extras like a side door and plush carpeting make it more inviting. And you have a very driver-ready setup with a billet steering wheel, tilt column, Lokar floor shifter for the three-speed automatic, and a full set of AutoMeter gauges dominating the dash.

The engine bay is tidy and shiny – exactly how you want it when it’s on display for the world to see. You’re looking at a 383 cubic-inch stroker V8 with aluminum heads. This is a well done setup where the high-rise intake is not only great for power but it really puts the dual Edelbrock four-barrel carburetors on display. It has well-placed supporting components, like an MSD ignition and an aluminum radiator w/electric fan. And those Sanderson zoomie headers have a true hot rod style as they give this hot rod a proper roar. The suspension has polished hairpins front and rear. The back has extra meaty Hoosier tires to get the power to the ground, and the front has disc brakes to take out the speed.
