  • 23 t-bucket all ford baby

    who else has had the good luck of driving or riding in a 23 t-Bucket. I was lucky enough to build and enjoy one with my dad . It was a dream of ours and we made it happen ! It all started with two tailed literarily . Crazy how fast and fun the car is . Open air all motor and tires . We truly built it all in our garage . He drives it when ever he can putting over 8000 miles on it over serveral years now. We race it all we can too! If you ever have a chance to ride in one don't pass it up.

      Teaser lol . I'll add some soon got a new phone list of my pics from old phone . Details . Boneyard 351w stock internals , rpm intake headers 600 Holley and complete msd ignition system. Rebuilt aod a nine inch rear with 4:87 gears . Runs and drives awesome . Very mild power but surprisingly fast car. Not a show car is built to drive, cruise and race. Even with the gears you can run on the highway at 70 mph below 1800 rpm

        Have you ever had the car weighed? It can't be very heavy.

          It was close to 1780 pounds I get the power to rate ratio ! But even against other buckets it's fast. It's very well set up not crazy power so we get traction but enough to push it down the track . Also the gears with the aod and 32 tall tires work perfect. We love the fact you can just jump it starts right up ever time cold hot not mater what, never over heats 110 degrees out in traffic no issues , gets decent mpg and runs fast when you want it too. Normal cruising it's actually quite for rod headers with small baffles. And the small vac secondary 600 is awesome . I have a lot of other street rod come over and ask for advice after I kick their butts lol

              Here's a tip: Upload the pics to a hosting site like photobucket and hot link them back here. This sites pic system sucks since the last update.

                Our photo posting ability seems to be hit or miss depending on the users computer. I have no problem at all. One thing that is stupid and illogical is that when you post, you don't use the camera icon on the top left, you have to use the paper with the paper clip icon on the right upper which is supposed to stand for attachment. Most people don't think of their pictures as attachments.

                  Sounds like a nicely sorted out combo, good job!

                              Nice T! Love the MT's on the back, every T needs those. I want to build a 27 T or 29 A roadster one of these days if I can get the other stuff squared away.
