The popular style of hot rods known as ‘T-Bucket’s’ are based on the famous Ford Model T, produced from 1915 through to 1927, this car revolutionized the automobile industry with the concept of a moving assembly line. Due to Ford’s new innovation, they were able to produce their vehicles significantly cheaper than competitors in the market. As the Model T was built in such large numbers, it was a natural option for hot rodders of the 1950’s to use as a base to build high-powered performance-oriented vehicles. The T-Bucket still remains a popular hot rod platform, loved for its open top motoring, ruckus power and classic styling. There is no denying that you can’t help but look twice when you see a T-Bucket on the road.
The interior is a perfectly comfortable place to be, as long as it is not raining. The removable rear seat (for access to a battery cutoff) has some issues with fitment from being removed and reinstalled numerous times, we would recommend either relocating the battery cutoff switch or having the rear seat rebuilt to allow for easier access.
The exterior of the car has been painted blue with yellow vinyl decals, the paint is holding up well with no major chipping, cracking or failure, a thorough paint correction would help this vehicle catch even more attention at your local cars and coffee! The windshield needs resealing, a rattle is noted when driving.
The engine shows no signs of leaking, starts right up and drives well, the car drives straight and true on the road. Unfortunately the braking system is lacking power assistance and the passenger side brakes seem to engage more firmly than the drivers side, a full brake system service is highly recommended before driving this vehicle.
