1948 Other MakesUp for bid, I have a ONE OF A KIND, 1948 INTERNATIONAL RAT ROD ! This truck is a BRAND new vehicle with a 1948 Truck cab on it. Drive it anywhere, no problems. I have hundreds and hundreds of hours in this truck, over $15,000 invested, not counting parts I already had. Custom built frame, front to back. 2"x3" 1/8" wall tubing. All new suspension, leaf springs in the rear, single cross leaf in the front. All new vega typesteering. Front disc brakes on a 1940 Ford car axle. Mostall parts on this truck came from Speedway Motors. All new brake lines, all new fuel lines, with canister type fuel filter. Holley electric fuel pump. The truck also has a on board air tank, and air compressor, working a rail road air horn, the air horn needs a new valve, still works, just not as load as it should be.All new Chrysler 440 BIG BLOCK. Completely rebuilt by Larry Goliday, owner, and driver of the AMX race car, The Wild Child. Motor is 30 over, steel crank, flat top pistons, cam is about 5.09 lift, 305 I think duration, can't remember exact specs. Double roller timing chain. The motor rebuild kit cam from Mancini Racing. MSD ignition system, wires, cab, distributor, 6AL box, with the 2 step, also MSD shift light. Also tunnel ram intake with 2 BRAND NEW Holley 450's727 with a NEW Cheetah manual Valve body, forward gears. 3200 stall converter. 8.75 rear, with a 3.91 posi gearWAY TOO MUCH TO LIST. I've had the truck to the drag strip 2 times, it runs a 11.75, at 112 mph. I have the time ticket. The wiring I got from a 1964 Plymouth Valiant. Also the gauge cluster (dash) and steering column from the same, 64 Valiant. New gas tank, also 64 Valiant. LED lights, head lights, and tail lights.The truck comes with 2 different front ends. Both painted, and easy to change. I didn't want to cut a hole in the hood when I put the tunnel ram on, so I built a grille frame and took the hood off. It goes with the truck. New tires all the way around, M/T street slicks on the rear 30x12.5x15. All new shocks, Custom made, long tube headers, 2" tubes, into 3" collectors 3" pipe into round Stainless Steel Magnaflow mufflers, turned out the rear of the truck cab. It sounds GOOD, REAL GOOD! Lots and lots of little custom touches. The more you look, the more you'll find. This thing turns heads everytime. Park beside a new Mustang, new Camaro, or New Challenger, and get all the attention. Those guys hate it. This is well put together. Drive it anywhere. Ask any questions BEFORE you bid. PLEASE, NO DREAMERS, if you can't buy it, please don't ask a bunch of questions. I will answer any, and all questions. Either text, call, or ask through ebay 513-212-7150.The truck is for sell locally too, so I reserve the right to end the auction early if it sells here first.Please do not bid if you have a bunch ofnegative feedbackyou are buying the truck AS IS. I promise you, the truck runs GREAT, lots of power, sounds good, turns heads EVERYTIME!At the end of the auction, the winner, must pay a $500 NON-REFUNDABLE deposit to cover all ebay fee's. This deposit must be paid through Pay Pal, the rest of the money to be paid in CASH, or a bank to bank transfer. If you do a bank to bank transfer, I will release the truck, AFTER the transfer clears.This truck will be missed, it's the coolest thing I've ever owned. Thank you for checking out my baby.
IMPORTANT....the above listing is the original post from the guy I bought this from over a year ago. Just wanted to make everyone aware of the time & money he put into this truck. I am moving out of the country so sadly I need to sell the truck. I am taking a huge risk by making this a NO RESERVE auction so please only serious bidders only.
The only thing this truck needs is to have the carbs adjusted. It wants to stall out until it gets warmed up. It's not a big deal but just want to make sure everyone is aware.
I will not release the truck until all funds are paid in full.
Please ask all questions or call 513-212-7150 before bidding. It has dents and dings as a rat rod should. Truck is located in Cincinnati, Ohio. Sold as is with no warranty's.
Good luck to all!
It's one loud bad ass truck and will be missed!
