1923 Ford T-Bucket
Qualified at: Extreme Auto Expo
BY HIS own admission, Peter Green set out to build Australia’s best T-Bucket. ELITE T is a comfortable blend of modern and traditional, featuring classic aspects like the acres of chrome, baby 4/71 blower, highly detailed SB Chev, extra-loud Lakes pipes, IRS Jag rear end, raked stance, lantern-style lighting, extra tall screen and HOK Candy Apple Red paint. Contemporary touches include lots of one-off billet pieces, sculpture interior with full length console and double bucket seat arrangement all trimmed in red high-quality Scottish leather – there’s even a kick-ass audio system with blue tooth!
Peter, along with good friends Troy Heywood, Bruce Heywood and Craig Halling, pretty much built ELITE T at home – including most of the trick billet bits. The US fibreglass body is now wider and sits on a custom frame, which Peter fabricated. “Everything that could be chromed, was chromed,” says Peter. “Everybody spent countless hours polishing.” Peter’s a long term member of the Regency Ramblers and has always been a hot rodder and always wanted T-Bucket – he thought it was about time he built himself one – it just had to be like no other one ever seen.
