GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this 1923 Ford T-Bucket Custom. This stunning vehicle comes in a brilliant candy apple red paint job complemented by a clean black interior and black vinyl top. Powering this striking roadster is a strong 350 cubic inch V8 motor mated to smooth shifting automatic transmission. Upgrades to the 350 include Holley carburetors, an aluminum tunnel ram intake, Mallory ignition, full custom exhaust and more. The T-Bucket was professionally built by Jerry Block roughly 25 years ago. The current owner purchased the vehicle after the build was completed and has owned it since. During that ownership the vehicle was always properly stored and maintained. So, if you're in the market for a rare hot rod sure to turn a few heads, this is the vehicle for you. Please contact us today for more information.

Model Ts were hot-rodded and customized from the 1920s on, but the T-bucket was specifically created and named by Norm Grabowski in the 1950s. This car was named Lightning Bug, better known as the Kookie Kar, after being redesigned by Grabowski and appearing in the TV show 77 Sunset Strip, driven by character Gerald "Kookie" Kookson. The exposure it gained led to numerous copies being built. Today, T-buckets remain common. They generally feature an enormous engine for the size and weight of the car, generally a V8, along with tough drivetrains to handle the power and large rear tires to apply that power to the road. The front wheels are often much narrower than the rear wheels, and are often motorcycle wheels.
