1950 Ford Other Pickups
This is a classic hot rod/rat rod. She is 100% road ready, running hot loose and fast!! Built for speed! the engine is a built 350 Small block chevy 30 over running 9.5/1 compression and a reasonable cam, bolt block. steel crank. forged pistons. Caddi repro batwing air filter. jet hot coated edelbrock intake. It makes a real 350 horsepower spent gasses go out through the early 40's chevy fender well headers that have been flipped over for that evil look. Power is sent into a muncie 4spee, brand new hurst comp shifter, with new clutch, pressure plate, and flywheel. 9" ford rear with 3.73 gears(open) is mounted with a triangulated 4 link.
Frame is a factory built 2x4 heavy wall tube with strait front rails and a 18" rear. It is bagged in the back and will almost lay frame when aired out on its curve sitting on 18" new American racing steely rims and brand new 235 75r15 Coker whitewall classic tires. front suspension consists of a suicide model a front spring and a 4" drop axle from droppedaxles. The front links are true early Ford split wish bones, pindles and front brakes are off the 50 F1, aster is a dual chamber.
The cab is heavily altered with a 6" chop 6" section off the bottom and approximately a 12" channel. Seats are unpadded bomber style and the grill is from a 28 model T.
Vintage Beer keg for gas tank, seat belts installed. It's a blast to drive and gets all the attention everywhere I take it, real head turner!
Most everything is new, rebuilt, true vintage. The patina is awesome and it's coated in low gloss Danish oil for protection. Pics and words don't do this rat justice.
This was finished last march and has less than 3000 miles on the whole build. The motor was installed in late June to replace the mockup motor so maybe 1000 miles on it…Stainless headers. I have driven it 50 miles one way and maybe 150 miles in a day between shows and cruises.It does have heat and defrost installed for chilly mornings, also a manual choke in dash. 6'1" max maybe for driver. I have a friend who is 6'4" and he was very comfortable in the passenger seat. The air bags work off a simple lever on the console, the compressor is a viair mounted behind the drivers seat. Hard to let this one go! True rat rod lovers will love this car!
