If you don’t like people paying attention to what you are driving then this is not the rod for you! There is no way of missing this one coming, going or just sitting there! It has already won 5 trophies in its first two shows since being completed this year.
It is powered by a monster-built 355ci, V-8 Chevrolet crate motor coupled to a 350 Turbo automatic transmission with a 2,500 RPM stall convertor that gets to the pavement through the Currie 9-inch Posi-traction rear-end geared at 4:11. Fuel delivery comes from dual 600CFM Edelbrock carburetors set atop a high-rise manifold and underneath a custom painted air intake and filter. Inside the checker painted engine bay is an electric fan and water pump connected to the high-performance radiator to keep all of that horsepower cooled down. The Painless wiring gives a neat and orderly look over the chrome head covers and headers flowing out of the exhaust extensions with muffled tips. It sits on a 4-bar suspension with QA-1 rear coil-overs and disc brakes on all four corners with stopping power for those brand new Mickey Thompson radials. It is as pretty underneath as it is on top!
The exterior has been painted in award-winning, show quality “Plum Crazy” Purple paint with lettering striped in on the scoop and tailgate. It sports a custom front nose complete with a Rat Fink hood ornament, a bottom scoop and traditional styled wide headlights that are chrome and painted like the body. Unlike a lot of t-buckets, a right hand door has been incorporated making getting in and out a breeze. The finished bed has a checkered, working cover that has been custom made to fit perfectly.
The inside of the cockpit continues the checkered theme with the carpeting and custom painted dash that holds a full set of fully calibrated Auto Gauges. The leather seats and door panels are all done in a rich white color, as is the beautiful steering wheel accented in chrome all the way to the firewall. This is your chance to own a “brand new” ’23 T-bucket for much less than the cost to build. Avoid all the busted knuckles and just turn the key and go instead!
