I know, I know, I said I’d put up additional of this 1950 Ford COE just more than a week ago. My terrible, I obtained a little distracted. I’ll reveal why shortly. But, take these more photos of my penance.
This truck, known as the Flat Rat hails from Keswick Ontario and was designed by it’s owner Scott Badger (@keswickscott).
Scott has owned the truck cab about ten many years now. Things actually acquired going on the truck about five decades in the past, with important development becoming produced during the pandemic.
From powering the tilt cab to where the personalized four-backlink starts is most of a widened Chevy 3500 chassis. Forward of the entrance wheels is typically manufacturing unit Ford with signficant modifications carried out to make the steering operate at the truck’s new height.
The motor is a 7.3L Powerstroke with a T4 turbo update backed by an automatic transmission.
Scott managed to keep as substantially unique as he could, but he did have to exchange a bit of sheet metal listed here and on the taxi. The new additions have been sprayed by Scott in both white or purple.
Scott and his son also designed all 11 toes of the mattress from scratch.
Practically nothing more than an English wheel and a Princess Vehicle bead roller was utilised in the bed construction.
In point, the overall truck was built in a alternatively humble house garage. Proving the moment all over again that in which there is a will there is a way when it arrives to do-it-yourself fabrication. Something that surely delivered a little bit of inspiration for my very own project.
The tailgate of the truck is actually a next COE front conclude that has been modified to produce a tailgate. Scott crammed the grill, manufactured it hinge and took the Tremendous Duty embossing from a late model ford.
“If this isn’t Super Obligation I never know what is,” Scott mentioned.
For the eagle-eyed, indeed the tail lights are rotated versions from a 65 Ford Mustang, Fairly clever if you ask me.
Clearly, this truck is extremely substantially up my alley and I hope to see extra of it once more shortly.
Ontario is back jamming all over again and I’m certainly right here for it!
