Finding a vehicle that has been around for 100 years is a rare sight; keeping one running takes a lot of loving, and seeing one in person calls for a celebration. Present today is a true legend and a centurion and looks like this 1923 Ford T Bucket roadster we have today. This living legend sports a host of neat modifications and is reported to have been featured in Cars magazine in 1974, showcased in the movie Hotrod, and has won multiple awards over the years.
A star-quality motor deserves a custom exterior designed to spark conversation and turn heads. This 1923 Ford T Bucket roadster sports a tangerine exterior that's reported to be custom and sees a host of brass exterior components, which include brass headlights from Spit Patoons San Fransisco. In terms of shoes, this custom classic sports a set of 15-inch and 17-inch Buick wire wheels to better suit its hot rod styling. The catchy and custom exterior transitions into a white interior in this 1923 Ford T Bucket roadster. While the uber-cool custom styling on the exterior is nice, the interior is a throwback to the 20s of American automation and features a period-correct steering wheel and gauges for a drive feel like no other.
If the exposed powertrain wasn't a giveaway, here's what this 1923 Ford T Bucket roadster has to offer in terms of performance. Out with the age-old performance and in place is a performance powerhouse in the form of a 1957 392ci V8 Hemi motor capable of churning out a mighty impressive 700 horses, as reported by the current owner. The 50s powertrain sports a host of upgrades, which include an E.K 3/4 race cam, a custom brass keg barrel gas tank, and a custom brass radiator. The upgraded performance is met with a host of suspension upgrades which include a custom built frame and suspension by Greg Toreddo of Morgan Hill and a 1937 Ford Front tube axle dropped by Moore of Oakland, 1967 Jaguar XKE Differential, and four-wheel disc brakes for enhanced braking performance. In terms of power delivery, this custom 20s beauty channels all its performance to its rear wheels through a reported Torqueflite push-button transmission.
