Gateway Classic Cars of Houston is proud to offer this awesome T-Bucket! This one is obviously based on a much older vehicle but is titled as a 1969. This one is powered by a powerful 350 CID V8 engine mated to an automatic transmission for a smooth and punchy driving experience. Safety is enhanced with the addition of seat belts which helps make this car a little less scary to drive. This one is in great shape and ready to hit the road or the strip! The T-Bucket is a hot rod based on a Ford Model T which was made from the 1915 to 1927 era. However, they are typically excessive modified from their factory form. These were favorites among greasers. A youth subculture popularized in the late 1940s and the 50s. The word "greaser" originated in the 19th century in the United States as a derogatory label for poor laborers. The term was later used to refer to mechanics. It wasn't used in writing to refer to the American subculture of the mid-20th century until the mid-1960s, though in this sense it still evoked a pejorative connotation and a relation to machine work. The name was applied to members of the subculture because of their characteristic greased-back hair. T-Bucket was specifically created and named by Norm Grabowski in the 50s. Hid car was named the Lightning Bug, better known as the Kookie Kar, after being redesigned by Grabowski and appearing in the TV show 77 Sunset Strip, driven by character Gerald “Kookie” Kookson. The exposure it gained led to numerous copies being built. Since the last Model Ts were built in 1927, most modern T-buckets use replica fiberglass bodies. By the 1950s, original steel Model T bodies that had not been completely worn out were becoming increasingly hard to find and in 1957 the first fiberglass T-Bucket body (based on the 1923 version) was introduced by the short-lived Diablo Speed Shop in Northern California. Of the only two or three bodies built by Diablo, one was purchased by Southern California hot rod builder Buzz Pitzen and became the world's first fiberglass T-bucket. This T-Bucket is in our Houston showroom. Come by and see us at 1910 Cypress Station Dr #200, Houston, TX 77090.
