In the world of T-Buckets it seems like everyone picks their side to love them or hate them. Well this classic 23 Ford T-Bucket fades this line and will have even the biggest T-Bucket hater checking it out. It was done in such a way to not look like your everyday bucket. The body was entirely hand built and crafted by custom builder Scott Silva. It was created to give the car a unique look from every other one out there by combining some stylings of all the Fords from 1923 to 1932. Over 600 hours of work was put into the custom fiberglass body which made it completely one of a kind. The rear section itself will have you wondering why this style of body hasnt been picked up and mass produced. It is just too cool! It is coated in a custom mix of House of Kolor Kandy Green and Kandy Blue. It has custom graphics down the side with the cars name NasTy custom striped on the rear. The body is mounted to a total performance 1923 chassis that has all been painted to match. In fact, if it isnt polished or chromed it has been painted to match. That is the type of detail work that you will notice when checking the car out. Literally, if it could be chromed or painted...it was. The inset taillights work just as they should and with no issues. The hideaway license plate is a very cool feature in that it allows you to stay legal while still looking good at car shows. The car has a very tough stance and rides on a set of very high quality Budnik polished Billet Wheels. With a Mickey Thompson Sportsman (33X19.5X15) tire in rear you can just imagine how much money and work went into the wheels alone! The drivetrain in the car is almost work the asking price in itself! The 468 Chevrolet big block V8 runs extremely well and was all professionally put together. With 9.5 to 1 compression pistons and a 292H competition cam you know this thing runs. The polished tunnel ram manifold is topped with two powder coated Holly 650 carburetors and chrome velocity stacks. The Billet valve covers have a mirror like finish and the lines have been custom filled with a purple paint. This purple is also found in a few other components like the matching spark plug wires. This classic looks mean driving down the road and has no problem getting attention. If the look alone doesnt grab them the awesome sound that is pumped through the Sanderson Ceramic Coated heads and side pipes. It is truly the type of rumble every car guy is after. The car runs nice and cool with a Walker radiator housed in a nicely painted grill and grill shell. Backing up the motor is a very well built TCI 400 transmission with a 3500 converter. As mentioned earlier all of these components have been painted to match the car. It has Wilwood polished 4 wheel disc brakes with a working emergency brake directly on the drive shaft. The Currie Ford 9 rear end is very stout with 31 spline axles and 4:11 gears. This car is a rocket and will out perform most things you put it up against! The interior is kept simple but you can bet there is still only the best of the best. The gray bench seat is comfortable and in great condition. The out side edge of the seat and interior has a 1 section painted metallic silver which really gives it a cool look. You wouldnt even notice this accent was there if you werent looking for it. The dash is painted a combo of the Kandy body color and this silver. It is topped with Cyberdyne Digital gauges that are each mounted in a dark gray bezel. This appear fully blacked out until you start up the car and see those Red numbers lit up. A polished Budnik steering wheel is cleanly mounted to the painted steering column which all has a perfect finish. The rear view mirror is all billet to match both the side mirrors. To continue the vintage 32 theme the trunk has been custom made to open like a rumble seat. However, inside you will not find an extra seat but will see the fuel cell and extra storage. The car has won a countless number of trophies and was even featured on the ESPN Mothers car show series. Another great feature is the fact that the car is actually titled as a 1923 Ford Roadster!
