Description:

What you''re seeing here is the triumphant return of the T-bucket to relevance in today''s hot-rodding world. The basics are still recognizable: an open engine compartment, a minimalist "bucket" of a cabin, and giant rear tires, but the whole thing has been reinvented and reinterpreted with a 21st century ethos, and the result is very, very cool. The shell is fiberglass and still has the traditional styling cues, ranging from the "imprints" of the rounded Model T doors and a stubby pickup bed, but that''s pretty much where the similarities end. It''s been bathed in Mopar Burnt Orange paint that is quite fashionable today, and the details are crisply rendered. But there''s no mistaking this for one of its vertical-windshield ancestors, not with that steeply raked windshield with frameless glass. The antiquated Model T brass radiator is gone, replaced by a smooth ''32 Ford piece, cut down to fit the low-profile engine bay and flanked by a set of King Bee headlights on chrome stalks. The chrome front axle has been pushed aaaaaalll the way forward to make it look long and low and lean, not stubby and clumsy like its forebears. And out back there are flush-mounted LED taillights that make it stand out at night and in a crowd. Admit it: even if you don''t like T-buckets, you''re digging this one. Lots of custom stuff inside, too, and no it''s not diamond-tufted vinyl that looks like the booth in an old Italian restaurant. Instead, it''s tan leather with detailed embroidery and embossing that makes the upholstery just as interesting as the bodywork. Matching side panels (there are no doors, so they''re not door panels) flow into the wrap-around bench seat, and even the bus-like steering column angle has been softened a bit in this T. Also note the ''T'' motif going on in the seat back, the matching tan leather steering wheel, and custom-fitted carpets and mats. More tech shows up in the dash, which is a Dakota digital setup that springs to life when you turn the key, all hidden behind a single pane of smoked Plexiglas. No heat, no stereo, no windows, no top, but isn''t that the point? This sucker totally makes the basics look good! The engine is a GM ZZ4 crate motor, making a nice, round one horsepower for each of its 350 cubic inches. Since it''s out in the open like that, it''s been drenched in chrome, from the scoop atop the dual 4-barrel carbs to the smooth valve covers to the gorgeous headers and side pipes. It''s backed by a TH350 3-speed automatic, but with so much power and so little weight, you really don''t even need three gears. Out back, there''s a built Currie 9-inch that''s so trick you''ll be glad it''s so visible under the car, complete with disc-style E-brake and a 4-link suspension. Four-wheel disc brakes give this T the stopping power of a race car, and with those gorgeous Billet Specialties wheels and sticky 215/45/17 front and 295/45/20 rear BFGoodrich radials, it actually handles like a race car, too. The T-bucket has evolved, and today it''s not an anachronism. Instead it''s modern, fast, and easy to drive, not to mention pretty darned slick-looking. If that appeals to you, give us a call now! This vehicle is located in our Charlotte showroom. For more information, please call (704) 598-2130 or toll free (866) 542-8392.
