Now for sale in our Houston Showroom is this 1928 Ford Pick-up Rat Rod. A rat rod is a style of hot rod or custom car that, in most cases, imitates (or exaggerates) the early hot rods of the 1940s, 1950s, and early-1960s. The style is not to be confused with the somewhat closely related traditional hot rod, which is an accurate re-creation or period-correct restoration of a hot rod from the same era. Most rat rods appear unfinished, regardless of their status, as only the vehicles bare essentials are driven. These are built to drive, not exclusively for show. The truck frame is a Riley auto boxed double Z’d chassis with an 8-inch kick up in the rear. It also features reinforced cross members for added structural strength to handle a higher HP drive train which has been powder coated for longevity. All suspension components are Pete & Jakes Hotrod parts. It has a more traditional style look with the front & rear leaf springs for a buggy set up with a Vega steering box. Powering this sweet rat truck is a 327 CID V8 that is from a 1963 Chevy Corvette. It has a mild cam, new distributor, new spark plugs & wires, Holley double pumper 750cfm carb, new water pump & pulleys, & a new alternator. Coupled to the restored 63’ Vette motor is a Turbo350 3-speed automatic transmission with a 16-inch Lokar shift kit installed. Features a 9-inch Ford rear axle with 3.50 gears. The engine puts out 300HP to the wheels and for a truck that weighs a little as this one does, it really makes this truck get up and move. Bringing this truck to a stop are GM vented disc brakes in the front and Ford drum brakes in the rear. The truck sits on 16-inch Vintiques 14 series reproduction wheels wrapped in Firestone tires. The interior looks very cool as well featuring the original gauge cluster, 2 nice vinyl bucket seats that are comfortable, black rubber carpeting, 1950’s USAF jet fighter lap belts/seat belts, stained & polyurethane wood inserts, & some diamond plating near the firewall. The truck has a new 16-gallon U3 series fuel tank that sits on its wood paneled bed that is in great condition. The truck has that cool patina finish that really gives this truck its rat rod DNA. With the gloss black frame & grill contrasting the polished engine components & the addition of the wood panels, really makes this truck stand out against the rest.
