Streetside Classics - Nashville
6000 Reliance Dr
The problem for many taller people who want a classic Ford T-Bucket is that they have a hard time fitting comfortably. But that's also probably why the "Big & Tall" part of the name really has your attention on this roadster. The interior is built for people six-feet and over, but that doesn't impede on the classic custom style and proper V8 power that makes a T-Bucket an icon.
The paint package on this one is thoughtful and comprehensive. The purple and orange are intertwined in some very cool ways. The first place you really notice it is on the body. You have a one-piece fiberglass tub that makes for a smooth background to have the purple up front that transforms into yellow-kissed flames before it burns away into the orange. There's more orange on the front axle and the full frame. There's purple on the grille, suspension arms, front leaf spring, and rear axle. Even the engine block is purple in this well-planned build. And you can see it all so well because it has been enjoyed responsibly over the years. There are cool details, like the one-piece windshield, Mustang tail lights, side step plates, wind wings, and Weld racing wheels with the extra-wide rear set. Plus, while you already know this one was built for taller people, it never jeopardizes the iconic proportions. So the grille and motor are set back on the chassis for a good weight balance and let the front axle lead the way forward.
The full two-tone package continues inside. The colors continue to be so intertwined that you have cool details, like the purple seatbelts and orange tuck and roll style inserts in the upholstery. But the real appeal here is the space it has to offer. The angle of the steering column should start to really show how this one has extra depth inside to accommodate six-foot people and taller. That's a rarity in the T-bucket world. And you still get the best performance pieces, like a small diameter sports steering wheel, dash dominated by essential gauges, and a B&M floor shifter for the three-speed automatic transmission.
The engine has the perfect look you want on a street machine like this. The smooth firewall, polished components, and overall tidy setup make for a stylish motor that deserves to be on display. The angry eyes of the butterfly valve air grabber feed into the Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor and a high-rise aluminum intake. It all delivers the power to the 350 cubic-inch V8. Plus, those polished headers feed right into those rumbling side pipes. And details like the HEI ignition and aluminum radiator keep this powerful motor a stout runner. You even get pieces that you don't find on some others like rear adjustable coilovers and four-wheel disc brakes.
The comprehensive two-tone style instantly grabs your attention on this roadster. And so the appeal of this one is far more than just the added size/comfort for those too tall to fit in the other T-Buckets. Call today!!!
