1950 Ford Other PickupsThis is a classic hot rod/rat rod. Built for speed and not comfort 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 saginaw 3 spd with new clutch, ressure plate, nd 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 z. It is bagged in the back and will almost lay frame when aired out on its current 30x9.5r15 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.
Beer keg for gas tank, seat belts installed, ts a blast to drive and gets all the attention everywhere I take it.
Most everything is new, ebuilt, r true vintage. The patina is awesome and it's coated in low gloss Danish oil for protection. Pics and words help but this must be seen if you are truly interested.
This was finished in march and has less than 1000 miles on the whole build plus this motor was installed in late June to replace the mockup motor so maybe 500 miles on it…Stainless headers, o baffles.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.I am 5'10" I built it around my size and I can put padding on the seat. 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, o solenoids to fail and the compressor is a viair mounted behind the drivers seat.
