Slick, speedy, and an overall thoughtful build, this 1925 Ford T-Bucket TrackTee Roadster is the kind of custom that deserves your full attention. It has the classic hot rod silhouette, but it takes its racing pedigree seriously with smooth lines everywhere (including the undercarriage) and a stylish race-ready interior. And the 302 V8 under the hood is a clean and mean powerhouse that really lets you have some fun.
The cool streamlined nose marks the “Track T” look that came from the dirt track racers. And this one even has real Halibrand sprint car wheels with knock-off hubs. But this sleek machine looks like it barely ever touched rough blacktop. The Tangelo Pearl is one of the boldest hues from the House of Kolor palette, and so this professional application really shows off the sleekness of the lightweight fiberglass body. The custom silver flame burning up the front end shows off how well the panels fit, but that’s not the most intriguing part. The coordinating silver lower section is not only attractive, but it also shows off the thoughtfulness of the build. This is the frame, and it has a rounded style that tucks under the car with the kind of smoothness you get on a channeled look. And as you peek underneath, you see that the undercarriage is full painted silver and has many flat panels installed for the kind of aerodynamics you get on a modern sports car. In fact, we’re told this was inspired by the F1-style monocoque design. It tells you this one was made for more than just vintage fun.
The interior continues to pay tribute to the classic Track T style while also giving you the right modern racer upgrades. For example. You still get classic machine-turned paneling on the dash. There’s a small/grippy steering wheel and the gauges are even Stewart Warner units. But you can tell there’s much more going on here than just classic style. This is outfitted nicely where the seats, side panels, and carpet piping are all well-coordinated. And you have extras that don’t usually come in a T-bucket, like a proper center console. And real bucket seats, RJS racing harnesses, and a ratchet shifter are true racecar pieces.
Racing sleekness means a flush-mounted hood with the long air grabber peeking out to feed cold oxygen to the motor. And when you take the cover off, you’ll see that this classic T-style machine has the best in hardy Ford power. It’s a 302 cubic-inch V8. It’s built with a roller cam, Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock intake, and Sanderson headers feeding into the center-exit dual exhaust. The suspension has some great old-school pieces that are also relevant today, like a Superbell front, Halibrand torsion rear, and a limited-slip diff with 4.11 gears. Plus, pieces like BF Goodrich T/A tires, a stout C6 three-speed automatic transmission, and four-wheel disc brakes add plenty of modern sports car appeal.
