The reason why you see so many Model T based rods at car shows is because Henry Ford built millions of them in the Oughts, Teens, and Twenties -- 16.5 million to be precise from a network of over 25 assembly plants in places like Cleveland, Buenos Aires, Copenhagen, and Yokohama. You can find a stock or stockish Model T, but driving one on a modern street would be a chore -- however, plenty have been upgraded with "modern" performance.
Ladies and Germans...what we're lookin' at 'ere is a gen-u-ine Alfa Romeo V6 taken from a GTV6 or Milano. Those Italian cars would have used a rear mounted transaxle, and judging by the odd shifter location, we might be looking at a transaxle equipped T-Bucket. Strictly speaking, this T is done in a more modern hot rod style (the stereotypical "bucket" rods usually have tall stock T windshields and incredibly wide rear tires) but this is a good candidate for flame abatement and application of a more tasteful paint job...and wheels. Someone please kill those hideous billet wheels.
