Vehicle Description

1945 Ford Three-Window Rat Rod Pickup

Car History

Adventure Classics has a custom 1940-45 Ford Three-Window Rat Rod Pickup for sale that is fun, quick, and very affordable.

The modern definition of a "rat rod" is a custom car or truck with a deliberately worn-down, unfinished appearance, typically lacking paint, showing rust, and made from an assortment of parts. A rat rod may or may not have extraneous decorations, but will always exude a great deal of personality due to the imagination required of the builder.

An alternate definition of a "rat rod" is a style of hot rod or custom car that, in most cases, imitates or exaggerates the early hot rods of the 1940s, 1950s, and early 1960s. The style is not to be confused with the somewhat closely related "traditional" hot rod, which is an accurate re-creation or period-correct restoration of a hot rod from the same era.

Engine & Drivetrain

In 1945 the war was won and factories had returned to what they do best, manufacturing automobiles. Ours is a one-off custom-built truck that will be fun to cruise in and be sure to garner attention where ever it goes.

Our 1940-45 is powered by a freshly built 350 cubic inch small block Chevy engine and looks right at home which sure to draws a crowd when it fires up and you hear the funny car style tube headers. It has an aluminum intake, Holley performance carb Edelbrock valve covers, polished air cleaner scoop, aluminum fan shroud, air conditioning, and more.

It transfers the power to a Turbo 350 3-speed automatic transmission and a Ford 9-inch four link rear end with a front independent coil over suspension all bolted to a 1932 frame.


The interior of the truck is simple with the grey tweed seating and black painted dash, door panels, and floor. It features a polished tilt steering wheel, performance Dolphin gauges, 3-spoke sport steering wheel, and the Air Conditioning.


The overall look is simple, just as a Rat Rod is supposed to look like. It is menacing as it is coming down the road with its white patina paint on the cab and wood in the bed as well as the polished aluminum wheels with black center caps and black wall performance tires.


If you have been wanting to get a Rat Rod like the 1940-45 Ford Three-Window Pickup we have at Adventure Classics then this is the one for you.
