OH BOY is that Ford T-Bucket even driveable?!? With almost 1200 HP and a blower directly in front of the driver's seat... LOL... and the interior matching the paint... that was just beautiful.

It's powered by a hopped-up Ford 223. My friend built his engine similar to the one that holds the current Bonneville speed record for the vehicle & engine type. (During his research, he ended up meeting the guy who built & raced the real deal!) Gets a lot of attention at the local shows!

Good looking old Ford! That's quite a pedigree! Good to see your friend saved it in it's original form. I wonder what the record holder thought of one of the prototypes escaping.
