You must see and drive this truck!     HISTORY: “Originally, rat rods were a counter-reaction to the high-priced "customs" and typical hot rods, many of which were seldom driven and served only a decorative purpose. The rat rod's inception signified a throwback to the hot rods of the earlier days of hot-rod culture—built according to the owner's abilities and with the intention of being driven. Rat rods are meant to loosely imitate, in both form and function, the "traditional" hot rods of the era. Biker, greaser, rockabilly, psychobilly, and punk sub-cultures are often cited as influences that shaped rat rodding. The typical rat rod is a late-1920s through to late-1950s coupe or roadster, but sometimes a truck or sedan. Many early (pre-World War II) vehicles were not built with fenders, hoods, running boards, and bumpers. The bodies are frequently channeled over the frame and sectioned, or the roofs are chopped, for a lower profile. Later-era post-war vehicles were rarely constructed without fenders and were often customized in the fashion of kustoms, leadsleds, and lowriders; Maltese crosses, skulls, and other accessories were often added. The owner of the vehicle was typically responsible for most, or all, of the work present in the vehicle. Recently, the term "rat rod" has been used incorrectly to describe almost any vehicle that appears unfinished or is built simply to be driven. Chopped tops, shaved trim, grills, tail lights, and other miscellaneous body parts continue to be swapped between makes and models.”-Wikipedia   SPECIFICS / BUILD INFORMATION   EXTERIOR: -Chopped and sits on its original patina metal. -Pine wood bed. -Air compressor system in the back. -4 Wheel air ride suspension. -Black steel wheels. -15 inch radials.   INTERIOR: -Dark red bench seat. -Floor shifting manual transmission. -Temp and pressure gauges. -Tilt column steering wheel. -Remote for the air ride suspension.   MECHANICAL: -383CID Stroker V8! -4 speed manual transmission. -Front disc brakes. -Independent front suspension.  -Runs excellent.   DISCLOSURE: -It's a RAT ROD! There are a few chips / imperfections in the paint (See detailed pictures) -No glass in the doors.    Own this vintage Rat Rod at a fraction of the build cost.
