1927 Ford Model T Additional Info:

Thank you for taking a look at my 1927 T-Bucket. It's a completely custom car that was built to go fast and still be somewhat safe. Here is a list of features:
Frame, body and front suspension: California Custom Roadster
Engine: Chrysler 440 with forged crank, Direct Connection 8 quart competition aluminium oil pan, LY rods, all new bearings, Federal Mogul 10.5:1 pistons, Torker II intake, Holley 750 double pumper carb, Mopar .557 solid lifter cam, 906 race ported heads with 2.11 intake and 1.81 exhaust valves, MSD 6AL ignition box and competition distributor, andS print car competition headers custom made for the car. Dyno tested at 378 RWHP before it was tuned.
Trans: Chrysler 727HD short tail shaft
Differential: Ford 8.8 limited slip with 3.73 gears. Rebuilt at the same time as the engine.
Brakes: Ford Granada 1" bore master cylinder, new custom GM front disc brakes drilled for 4.5" bolt pattern, Ford rear disc brakes and adjustable brake proportioning valve.
Other features: NHRA legal 5 point safety cage, SFI 4 point safety harness, 8 gallon fuel cell, Kirkey competition aluminum seat, Chevy Vega steering box, Taylor racing spark plug wires, adjustable rear coil over springs with competition shocks, and battery main kill switch on dashboard.
This car was scaled at a professional racing chassis shop and with all fluids and no driver it weighs 1974 lbs with 54% of the weight being on the rear tires.
This car is driven occasionally on weekends. I have put less than 1,000 miles on it since I built it and almost all of those miles have been cruising around town. My goal was to start drag racing it but I've grown more interested in restoring something from or just before World War II, so I have to sell this car to make room for a new project. This car is fast. Really, really fast. I have raced a few people in this car, one being a modified Nissan GTR and nobody has been able to give me any competition. This car has also been extremely reliable. It starts every time with no drama and runs great. Doesn't load up at stop lights or hunt at light throttle. Honestly, one of the most reliable cars I have owned. California titles and registered until 2018.
If you have any questions, please message me on here or give me a call at (714) 606-1229. I would be willing to consider trades for cars or military vehicles from 1940 - 1945. Thank you!
