The Goal: To build a 1925 Ford T-Bucket Hot Rod worthy of the title "Tribute to Tommy Ivo". This very cool '25 T-Bucket Roadster was built by the actual members of the Willamette Valley Street Rodders to replicate the original '25 T-Bucket built by legendary race car builder and true hot rodder Tommy Ivo in 1959. The car was not only built to authentically replicate Tommy Ivo's original car, but to benefit children's cancer research at the Doernbecher Children's Hospital in Portland, Oregon. To that end, the entire proceeds of the sale of this amazing T-Bucket will be presented to Doernbecher Children's Hospital. Here's an opportunity to not only do something fun for yourself, but change the lives of others you don't even know.


This is a FRESH, BRAND NEW build '25 T-Bucket with all NEW parts; completed in 2011. MAS Racing Products T- Bucket body. Built and constructed at CJ's Hot Rod Shop in Salem, Oregon. Fresh 2-stage Buick Maroon Paint (base coat/top coat) with white pin striping. The beautifully striped Model T radiator shell sports its early-style ornament cap. White vinyl removable top with the "outhouse door" crescent moon rear window.

White rolled and pleated bench seat with Black carpeting. Cool tall gear shifter and vintage chrome spoon gas pedal. Classic Instruments 6-Gauge Electric Set features: tachometer, speedometer, oil pressure gauge, water temperature gauge, fuel level gauge and voltmeter.
