really old rat rods
im looking for really old rats, either built into a rat rod a long time ago or with the oldest body/parts. anyone have some pictures and or own a really old ride? i love the early 20s truck bodys and such. here are some i have in my picture collection. i think the first one is from 1919.
Heres a pic of my truck I just got 1926 T
Heres my rat in the making. Its 90 years old this year, does that qualify?
From Splash in New Port Richie....MY 32..........
Here is what my project looks like sooooo far.
I THOUGHT IT WAS "OLD", BUT apparently not
compaired to your type of 10's and 20's. Mine
is only a 1932....//Perhaps I should check and see
if there are any "ReCalls" on it....Hey maybe I might
still have some "Warrentry" left on it..........
( Just Jesting ) Your trucks are COOOOL.
Ha, those are all cool, i was beginning to think no-one would indulge my request. Early 30's is OK i guess the more square and boxy the better in my eyes... ha
Boneyardrats, that is a great looking truck, thats the kind of truck id love to have for everyday driving around town and hauling stuff, i love the wood sides on the bed. i like to see them with a hood too, it looks better to me, while still a little ratty.
Hillbilly, What are your plans for that? good looking grill, whats it from?
Not 100% sure what the plans are yet. Theres a show/swap meet comin up in 2weeks. I'll take the finished body there and try to rob somebody blind. If it doesnt sell i was thinking keeping it mostly Willy parts, or willys jeep related parts.
Im looking for a Continental 6 out of a Jeepster for it, and a Dana 44 out of a Jeep.
That grill is a modified Farmall tractor grill. I was going to use it on my last build, but came across another grill i couldnt refuse.
Pisks of my next Rat Rod Roadster
Here are some picks of what we think is a 1927 Nash rear section and a 1926 buick cowl. The motor I am going to use is one froma 1956 Caddy. the other picks are from me and my buddies future stock of parts we have collected.
wow you guys are so clever, i feel horrible being a newbie
Heres a 1928 Chrysler and a 1919 TT they have some potential.
