For sale in our Chicago showroom is an incredibly fun 1923 Ford T-Bucket. Henry Ford had a real winnn with the Ford Model T and the millions that were sold meant there was no shortage of small roadster bodies available for customization ever since the 1920â??s. In the 1950â??s the T-Bucket was named by Norm Grabowski and appeared in the show 77 Sunset Strip. An Icon was established that continues to live on amongst hot rodders today. Titled as a 1959 Chevrolet Kit, this T-Bucket is able to qualify for antique status.
This T-Bucket is a thrill to drive with the 327 cubic inch Chevy engine with a 471 Blower that was actually rebuilt by Gary Dyer himself. As long as we are name-dropping a bit this car was previously owned by Leonard Smith of the St. Louis Cardinals. The 4-Speed manual transmission makes this thing a thrill to drive and will easily get up to speed in any type of traffic.
This yellow hot rod was originally built in about 1980 but was rebuilt in 2006. The transmission was rebuilt by Powertrain Performance in 2007 and was repainted in 2006. Inside you will see a solid wood dash, beveled glass rear view mirror, full set of white faced VDO gauges, wood steering wheel, etched glass windshield and light gray tuck and roll upholstery. This car is sure to turn some heads and the headers make this 327 sound fantastic.
This thing is more fun than a carnival ride. Located in our Chicago showroom this 1923 Ford T-Bucket can be seen including an HD video and pictures at www.gatewayclassiccars.com. For additional information please call (708) 444-4488 or email Chicago@gatewayclassiccars.com
