Bluebird Power: 1927 Ford T-Bucket Roadster

This next car is a tribute to all those Datsuns that’ve gotten Ford V8s shoved into their engine compartments, because a swap cool the first time you see one, but sorta lame the 50th time.  And I’ve got to admit that I don’t think I’ve seen a Datsun 510 powertrain shoved into Model T…have you?  Find this 1927 Ford T-Bucket Roadster offered for $10,700 in Washington, MI via craigslist. Tip from Rock On!
