'27 T-bucket Hot Rod

It is time for me to sell my ‘27 T-bucket hot rod roadster. Health necessitates the sale. The body is a fiberglass 1927 Model T Roadster made by Spirit Industries, who also made the frame. The body was prepped and painted by a body shop in Orangeville, IL. The frame and most of the suspension parts were powder coated by Monroe Truck in Monroe, Wisconsin.

This car has an Oldsmobile 330 engine from a 1965 Vista Cruiser. Originally a two barrel engine, it now sports the aluminum intake from a late 70’s Olds and an Edelbrock 1406, 600 cfm carburetor with an electric choke. It has a Pertronix coil in cap GM type ignition and a one wire alternator made by Powermaster. I have replaced, the fuel pump, oil pump, water pump, timing gears, timing chain, valve springs, and valve seals. The electric cooling fan is in front of the radiator, behind the grill, and is controlled by a thermostatic switch. The compression ratio is 9:1 and it runs on regular gas. This car starts easily and starts every time. I drive it whenever the weather is clear.

The lakes style headers were custom made by Gear Drive Speed & Custom, and have internal baffles, and re-positionable turn outs. The transmission is a GM THM200-4R built by Gearstar to their level 2 spec. The driveshaft is a custom made unit by Midwest Driveshaft Co. in St. Charles, IL. The rear end is a Ford 8.8 from an Explorer and has a 3.73 gear set, limited slip, and QA1 coil-overs. It has disc brakes all around.

The steering column is a Flaming River tilt column with a Grant steering wheel with GM harness. It has an E-Z Wiring kit, and the wiring is hidden and run, as much as possible, within the frame. The shifter is by Lokar. Gauges are by Dolphin and the speedometer runs on a GPS sender. Taillights are 48 Chevy and the headlights reproduction Guide 682-C by OTB. The grill shell is a shortened, fiberglass ‘32 Ford. The air cleaner is a modern version of a late 50’s Cadillac/Oldsmobile unit.

It is roadworthy, has a clean, clear title, is registered, and insured. The car is currently titled in Illinois as a “1927 Ford Model T Replica” with a normal car title.

While I have done lots of work to the motor, I was planning to do a valve job this year. I'm not sure all of the valves are sealing right. The current price reflects that.

Health necessitates the sale. My email responses may take a couple of days. I will work hard with you to co-ordinate final payment and pickup. There are lots of extra parts also. Delivery within 25 miles.
