 Tired of showing up at the cruise night and someone having the same type of car as yours? THAT WILL NEVER HAPPEN AGAIN! This is a one of a kind, custom '23 Ford T-Bucket powered by a Boeing 502 Turbojet engine.  This isn't some hack job that someone built in their backyard, this is a well engineered, thought out, aircraft quality built vehicle.  As you can see, everything is well laid out and engineered with much thought to the end vehicle.  Everything is either polished or chrome including a chrome rear end, front axle, springs, suspension links, tie rods, etc.

The power plant in this vehicle is a Boeing 502 Turbojet engine.  This engine was designed by the Boeing company in Washington state to be used in many different applications.  They have been used in everything from powering fire trucks, Kenworth road tractors/semis, large Navy minesweeper generator systems, and even powering the prop on small aircraft.  It has tremendous amounts of torque, so much as a transmission is not even needed.  All that is needed is forward and reverse and nothing else. 

Everything for the engine is well laid out, including all stainless steel braided lines for the fuel system, aircraft quality wiring, relays, solenoids, and fuse blocks.  One of the attention-grabbing qualities of this T-bucket is the exhaust system, which diverts the heat to both sides of the vehicle.  To really impress everyone at cruise night, it also has a fire system designed to shoot fire out of both sides of the exhaust!

It has a deep, black finish in perfect condition.  A black leather interior sets it off.  Huge amount of gauges covering all aspects of the engine and vehicle performance.  Vehicle has rear brakes operated by foot pedal and also a power turbine brake operated by a T-handle in the center of the console.  Engine is operated by hand throttle in the console, just like an aircraft. Easy to start and drive. 

It also has a funny car style Deist parachute to set off the rear end of the car.

Also included are a custom car cover, a custom charger for the battery system, complete service and parts manual, and a copy of the original Navy film showing service, maintenance, and operating instructions for the engine. 

This is the kind of vehicle you would expect to see at a museum, Jay Leno's garage, a Barrett Jackson or Meccum Auto auction.

Note: The vehicle is not titled for street use, we just drove at car shows, cruise nights, etc. Ebay requires that something is entered on title status.  There is not a title for this vehicle at the present time.  There are many companies out there that will be able to help with acquiring for a custom built vehicle such as this, we never pursued it ourselves.   You may be able to easily acquire a title in your state on your own, as you know, each state is different.  If you have any questions about this, please contact us before bidding.
