1945 Ford Other PickupsLooking to sell my rat rod/hot rod, this is a 1945 Ford truck rat rod, hot rod. The cab is from a 1945 Ford all-wheel drive 1 1/2 ton Army truck from WW2. It still has the military ID plate with instructions on how to operate the transfer case ect. Post vin was originally the military vin but has since been out of commission with a new NV vin for license and reg. The big truck cabs are the same size as the 1/2 ton cabs, The cab top has been chopped 8", the roof has been cut out and covered with a truck bed cover material with polished snaps every 6 inches.

The floor and transmission/drive shaft tunnel are custom made out of heavy gauge sheeting w/ 1" square tubing frame work under it. All rust from the original body was cut out and patched with new steel but the dings and dents of the body were untouched to leave character.The chassis was built in late 2009 and is titled as a 2009 car.

If you have any specific question please send me a messageand I will do my best to answer any questions. . If you know what your looking at this is a good deal. If you are not into rat rods you could EASILY place a kit car or new body on this chassis and have a great handling hot rod. This IS NOT a butt-welded death trap of a rat rod, the only thing rat rod is the body and accessory.
