Flat Rat: A Slammed1950 Ford COE Firetruck On Air
I know, I know, I reported I’d post more of this 1950 Ford COE just about a week in the past. My negative, I received a very little distracted. I’ll expose why before long. But, acquire these more photographs of my penance.
This truck, recognized as the Flat Rat hails from Keswick Ontario and was designed by it’s operator Scott Badger (@keswickscott).
Scott has owned the truck taxi about ten yrs now. Items genuinely bought going on the truck about 5 yrs in the past, with sizeable development currently being created all through the pandemic.
From behind the tilt cab to exactly where the custom made 4-link starts off is most of a widened Chevy 3500 chassis. Ahead of the entrance wheels is generally manufacturing unit Ford with signficant modifications accomplished to make the steering operate at the truck’s new height.
The motor is a 7.3L Powerstroke with a T4 turbo upgrade backed by an automated transmission.
Scott managed to keep as significantly authentic as he could, but he did have to change a bit of sheet steel here and on the cab. The new additions have been sprayed by Scott in both white or pink.
Scott and his son also built all 11 feet of the bed from scratch.
Almost nothing more than an English wheel and a Princess Vehicle bead roller was applied in the mattress design.
In simple fact, the total truck was crafted in a relatively humble residence garage. Proving at the time once again that the place there is a will there’s a way when it will come to do-it-you fabrication. A little something that unquestionably furnished a bit of inspiration for my own task.
The tailgate of the truck is in fact a second COE front close that has been modified to make a tailgate. Scott filled the grill, created it hinge and took the Tremendous Duty embossing from a late design ford.
“If this is not Super Responsibility I really do not know what is,” Scott reported.
For the eagle-eyed, sure the tail lights are rotated versions from a 65 Ford Mustang, Quite intelligent if you request me.
Obviously, this truck is very substantially up my alley and I hope to see a lot more of it yet again quickly.
Ontario is again jamming yet again and I’m completely right here for it!
