1923 Ford T-bucket lots of chrome (Tweety)

Photo of a 1923 Ford T-bucket lots of chrome (Tweety)


We purchased my car in 1995 from our neighbor in Boise Idaho. I had seen our neighbor Ray drive his T-bucket through the neighborhood and told my husband Ed that I would love to own that neat yellow car, and he asked if I was serious and I said yes! Well, Ed had bee working on putting his 1969 Chevelle SS together when we saw Ray driving his car, and a couple of months later Ray came over to our house to see if we knew anyone that would be interested in his T-bucket, and I said me! To make a long story short, 2 months later the T-bucket was sitting in our garage, my Christmas present from my dear husband Ed.

My T-bucket was put together in 1974, painted a candy apple red. Small Block 327 Corvette engine. Was repainted a 77 Corvette yellow (with a touch of green added in) in 1977. We replaced the 327 with the 350 last year after having problems with the engine. Found the block had been patched on the 327.


Lenght: about 60 inches
Weight: 1754 pounds (with a full tank of gas)
Chevy small block 350, 300 horsepower. Hardened seats and guides
2 speed power glide tranny
B &n M shifter
Fiberglass body
Lots of Chrome (which I keep clean and shinny)
Suicide front end
Birds eye maple dash and trunk cover (made by our friend Tim)
Black tuck and roll interior

Haven't done the 1/4 mile with it, but have been up to 95 miles an hour.
