Tricking out a ford model t into an inspired roadster is by no means a new concept, but when taken to the level shown by this 1923 ford t-bucket roadster, it sure seems that way. From the time its installation began, the intent all along was to create a stellar showpiece with the visual pull to turn heads wherever it was put on display. A combination of awesome paint scheme, outstanding array of chrome components and distinctive design makes it evident that mission has been thoroughly accomplished. This one of a kind modded masterpiece will afford its next owner with the option of either retaining its status as a stationary attention magnet or taking a few steps to set it into motion. With its vibrant yellow exterior ornamented by multi-colored paint graphics on the doors and a one of a kind hydraulic roof sitting across the stop, this unusually well-crafted, magnetic roadster will stop passers-by in their tracks. The aggressively angled hydraulic top is a conversation piece unto itself - it not only raises and lowers, but tilts as well to add yet another element of intrigue to this singular vehicle. The purple ultra-leather seating straddles the divide between buckets and bench and is perfectly fitted to its tweed-lined surroundings. Just as with the exterior, the intent here was to achieve that coveted "wow" factor and it's been done with a lot of craft and precision. There are some great finishing touches on display to give the interior even more impact - the door panels feature flowing upholstered graphics that match the color of the seating, as does the horizontally positioned steering wheel sitting on its chrome column next to the signature b&m shifter. Just beyond, the dash area is yet another focal point in a car that has no shortage of them a set of digital gauges take their position in a strip of illumination recessed into an intricately-etched chrome instrument panel. A stainless-steel gas tank shares space with the battery in the tweed-lined rear compartment. From top to bottom, this engine features unbeatable visual impact. A look underneath provides a seldom-encountered sight - because this roadster hasn't seen any use on the road, its undercarriage is a visual masterpiece, with no rock chips to mar the consistent yellow paint. This outstanding piece of automotive artwork sits on a set of absolutely killer boyd coddington wheels, outfitted with michelin tires up front and massive 27" hoosiers in back. It's right here in this 1923 ford t-bucket roadster.
