Because the down-turned economy is no respecter of persons, even the hard core car enthusiast isn’t immune the to woes of unemployment, higher taxes, and increased cost of living rates. Sadly such is the case with the owner of this awesome t-bucket roadster. Siting the cause of this sale as needing to “clean out the toy box,” the owner of this ‘bucket lists quite a bit of TLC that has gone into this ‘rod.
Powered by a warmed-over SBC 350 with a roller cam and roller rockers, it funnels the spent gases through ceramic-coated headers. A Painless wiring kit, fuel cell keep the life pumping through the mouse motor. Backed with a TH350 automatic, the Ford roadster rides on coilover shocks on front and rear, and a 4-wheel Corvette disc brake system.
Believe it or not, the ‘bucket also includes wheelie bars, an electric fuel pump and recently changed the valve covers, carb, intake and installed an electric fan. A new butterfly-style scoop was also added, contributing to the roadster’s dragster-style feel. He also included a link to his photobucket account with gobs and gobs of awesome detail shots. We love the modern mixed with the retro styling of this t-bucket and hopes he gets what he’s asking for.
