High End Show Quality Build

T-buckets are all about wretched excess, and this wild one-off creation pulls no punches. With stout, supercharged small block power, a custom frame and competent suspension, and a surprisingly comfortable interior that opens up to the world thanks to a custom top, it's over-the-top in every measurable way, making this trophy winning T-bucket to own if you're seeking the spotlight.
Visibility is the T-bucket's claim to fame, and with that in mind this vintage 'bucket got a no-expense spared, glowing Burgandy candy paint job that lives up to national show standards and you'd have to be legally blind to miss it. There's not a lot of surface area, but the bodywork that remains on the minimalist T is expertly prepped and finished. The killer look vehemently argues that just because T-Buckets were originally designed to be inexpensive doesn't mean you have to build on the cheap. Every square inch of visible bodywork has been painted, upholstered, or polished, including the mini bed out back, which houses the gas tank and battery and wears its own custom-made cover. The tall Model T windshield remains. Oh, and that supercool top? It's actually a Custom Top that is in fact beautifully formed aluminum wrapped in durable canvas fabric. Man, this bad boy is trick everywhere you look!
The interior further customizes the template for the traditional T-Bucket as well, with tan and burgandy bench seat that provides snug accommodations for two. The tilt steering wheel enhances the experience.. A full array of gauges have been fitted into a custom finished dash, again offering just the right customization for a car straight out of a mad geniuses fever dream. And you can forget Mexican blankets serving as low-buck upholstery, because this one is very nicely finished, along with a full set of carpets that make it feel a bit more civilized. There is a radio hidden below the seat, no windows, and no heat, but with that thumping small block V8, we don't think you'll miss it.
Yes, that's a 350 Blue Printed V8 topped by dual Holley quads and a polished Weiand blower; Aluminum BPE Heads talk about overkill! The Weiand is topped by a pair of Hollys under a scoop, so it looks like you'd expect it to. And since it's right out there in the wind for everyone to see, all the components were either polished or plated so they sparkle in the sunlight.
There's nothing more radical than the T-bucket, and this one shows a lot of care and thought in the build, and is a fast, fun little car as a result. With a build cost north of of the asking price there simply isn't enough room on our website to go over all of the particulars. Give us a call and we'll give you the full scoop on the "T for II", it's very impressive.
