Rat rod culture is all about being different and powerful. So while
this 1930 Ford Model A Rat Rod continues to look like it was built
out of what was found behind Grandpa's barn, features like the
adjustable air ride suspension and Cummins turbodiesel let you know
how thoughtful this street machine really is.
This pays proper tribute to the classic Ford style with an uncut
body that shows off the classic lines. It even still keeps the
classic vinyl roof This Henry Ford steel has been worn down to
patina and bare metal for a cool industrial-grade toughness. It
goes well with the channeling over the custom frame to give it that
ultra-low look. The classic Ford front end has a fender-free
minimalist style so that you can really see the custom steel grille
covers and crystal-clear headlights. And we especially love the
look of the rear wheels. They have a heavy-duty kind of 8-lug
design, which goes well with the commercial-grade diesel motor up
front. And these just look extra cool when the adjustable
suspension is sitting low, and the tops of the classic whitewall
tires cresting above the window glass.
Open the door, and the full rat rod experience continues. Exposed
welds, plenty of patina, and even some vintage wood are what would
be considered the upholstery. The custom dash and low-slung seating
put you way back to almost where the rear seat was. The minimalist
attitude is part of the fun where the modern insulation on the
driveshaft tunnel can be considered a true luxury item. There are
welding goggles on the rear-view mirror, a corded wrap inside the
steering wheel, and of course, grabbing the tall gearstick will
instantly make you feel like the Rat Fink. It's not lavish, but it
sure is charming.
While Ford hot rods and rat rods often have small block V8 power,
this one has something quite unique to display up front. running a
powerful 5.9-liter Cummins turbodiesel. These motors have been a
popular and reliable industrial friend for decades. And while you
won't be using this for towing, a big torque fuel-injected
powerhouse like this can certainly haul. We even bet some of you
are thinking about using that big exhaust pipe up front to start
rolling coal. And the five-speed manual transmission keeps you in
control of it all.
This rat rod Is not for the timid. And you may need to do some
servicing on the front air bags, intercooler, gauges, power
steering, and some other finish work. But there are some of us out
there that crave something truly unique, and you know this
bare-knuckles turbodiesel machine delivers it. Call today!!!
