    Default Lets see some 47-54 Chevy Truck Rat Rods

    I'm just starting my '52 rat rod project. My father in-law gave me his '52 AD. The price was right, free!

    Here's mine, been installing our above ground pool so not much work lately. But, when pool is done and baby (AKA my loving wife) is happy....52' here I come. Not to mention what money I save on the pool install goes toward my truck. YAHOOO

    Got my 2 inch spacers on, working on panel replacement and cab mounts since these pictures.

    There are two things in life where penetration is really important.....and one of them is welding.

    Heres my wifes '50 3600. Im dying to get this thing goin down the road. She needs an automatic, but i love the stovebolt w/ 4spd. I was thinking about doing a subframe on it. Where do these trucks sit after installing a subframe? She wants it to sit pretty much stock. How much does the rear need to be lower'd to match the front?

    I went through all the work sand blasting the new wheels and making home made WWWs for it, and they dont clear the tie rods. Hind site is 50/50. They worked fine till i torqued the lugs down.
