I know, I know, I claimed I’d put up more of this 1950 Ford COE just more than a week back. My negative, I acquired a very little distracted. I’ll reveal why soon. But, consider these additional images of my penance.
This truck, identified as the Flat Rat hails from Keswick Ontario and was developed by it’s operator Scott Badger (@keswickscott).
Scott has owned the truck taxi about 10 several years now. Things actually obtained going on the truck about 5 many years in the past, with considerable development currently being built all through the pandemic.
From at the rear of the tilt cab to where the custom made 4-website link commences is most of a widened Chevy 3500 chassis. Ahead of the front wheels is typically manufacturing unit Ford with signficant modifications carried out to make the steering work at the truck’s new top.
The motor is a 7.3L Powerstroke with a T4 turbo enhance backed by an automated transmission.
Scott managed to preserve as a lot authentic as he could, but he did have to swap a little bit of sheet metallic below and on the cab. The new additions have been sprayed by Scott in either white or pink.
Scott and his son also created all 11 feet of the bed from scratch.
Nothing a lot more than an English wheel and a Princess Auto bead roller was used in the mattress development.
In truth, the total truck was constructed in a rather humble residence garage. Proving at the time all over again that where by there is a will there’s a way when it will come to do-it-you fabrication. A little something that certainly offered a bit of motivation for my own task.
The tailgate of the truck is basically a next COE entrance end that has been modified to make a tailgate. Scott filled the grill, manufactured it hinge and took the Super Duty embossing from a late product ford.
“If this isn’t Super Obligation I never know what is,” Scott mentioned.
For the eagle-eyed, certainly the tail lights are rotated versions from a 65 Ford Mustang, Really clever if you ask me.
Obviously, this truck is incredibly a great deal up my alley and I hope to see a lot more of it once more soon.
Ontario is again jamming again and I’m totally here for it!
