1923 Ford T Bucket Rat Rod Project. This is an Assembled Vehicle and was hand built. It has not been registered or assigned a VIN, but it's easily done in your home State. I will include a notarized Bill of Sale. If you don't feel confident about getting a title, I can do it for you for an additional $400 and a 3 week wait (State Law).
The car features a hand built rectangular steel frame and original 1923 Ford T Bucket steel body, very hard to find. It is powered with a 1970's 472 Cadillac motor (the high performance version) with a Turbo 400 Transmission - both running when removed from the Cadillac 2 years ago. There are still a few things left to complete: the brakes (I will include the pedals and the master cylinder); wiring; plumbing; floorboard; and firewall, as well as a few brackets that need to be made. I will also include the parts to build a roadster style exhaust, but you will have to cut your own head plate as it is not included (they are available on Ebay for about $35). It really wouldn't take much to get this car to run, a couple of weekends and a moderately equipped backyard garage. If you don't feel comfortable but are interested in the car, please feel free to email me for my number and we can discuss a price to make this a running car. It has everything a good Rat Rod should have with a 375+ hp cadi motor, it will be a monster! I just have no time and too many projects.
I can assist you in setting up shipping. I have shipped numerous vehicles all over the States and prices range from $700 to $1200 (note, back to college is a "shipping season" where rates can be a little lower). You can also pickup yourself, I will allow time for travel arrangements within reason and upon full payment.
Please email with any questions.

The Ford GT40 owns a firm spot on the list of the greatest American racecars ever made, being the first car from the United States to take an overall win in the 24 Hours of Le Mans. And now Mecum will auction what it claims is second-oldest GT40 still in existence at its Houston sale on April 12.

The story of the GT40 is fascinating. Henry Ford II attempted to buy Ferrari in the early '60s, but Enzo refused. Ford decided if he couldn't have them, then he would beat the Prancing Horse on the track. Ford went to Carroll Shelby and asked him to spearhead the program. The early cars combined a steel monocoque chassis with Ford's 4.2-liter V8 engine pumping out around 350 horsepower. The first prototype made its public debuted on April 1, 1964, at the New York Auto Show.
Shelby kept building prototypes, including GT/104, which is for sale here. This version featured a lighter steel chassis and was raced at Le Mans in 1964. However, a fire forced it to retire. It was then repainted and had a 4.7-liter (289-cubic-inch) engine fitted. The chassis had its best finish at the 1965 Daytona Continental 2,000 Kilometers where it finished third with Bob Bondurant and Ritchie Ginther behind the wheel. Later that season, it was shipped back to Ford where it was restored and displayed at auto shows until 1971 when the automaker sold it. Since then, it has had many private owners.
Ford's bro-tastic F-150 Tremor will be pacing this weekend's NASCAR Camping World Truck Series at Michigan International Speedway. The Tremor fills a gap in the Ford F-Series lineup that we imagine the NASCAR set have clamored for - a hot-rod pickup truck.

Where the F-150 Raptor is designed to go quick on anything, the Tremor and its 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 are designed to tackle the road. The 365-horsepower and 420-pound-foot EcoBoost is unchanged from the rest of the F-150 line, but it combines the shortest drive ratio with the lightest two-door body, making it a bit of hot rod.
Ford will be offering hot laps with Michigan native Brad Keselowski behind the wheel of the Tremor for fans that arrive in the Irish Hills on August 14. The main showing for the new pickup will be the August 17 race, though, when it'll lead the field at the start of the race and through cautions.
The record-setting Hennessey-powered camouflage Ford GT we showed you at this time last year headed back to the Texas Mile and managed to bring home yet another record. As you may recollect, last year saw Mark Heidraker's machine sprint to a record 257.7 mph thanks to propulsion from its twin-turbo 5.7-liter V8. The big mill sucks down race gas, and this year the creation pulled off a 267.6-mph run over the weekend. That feat set a new record for the event. Something tells us neither Heidraker nor Hennessey are done squeezing more thrust from this machine.
This particular Ford GT has already gone through a number of permutations. Hennessey started by tweaking the factory supercharger set up before abandoning the blower in favor of two turbos. Since then, the crew has poked and prodded it to coerce as much grunt as possible out of the car. We expect Hennessey will probably come out with a video of the record-setting run shortly, but in the meantime, you can see a couple of videos of the car's runs in Texas below (one of which actually captures the record run). Enjoy.
