Magazine Featured Custom Rat Rod Truck 454 V8 Automatic Air Ride ///
If you've grown weary of the seemingly endless barrage of cruisers and muscle cars parading through your favorite car show, this innovative Chevy is your first class ticket to rustic romanticism! A case study in the lifetime dependability of choice American metal, this 3100 was never meant to be a slammed trendsetter. But THAT, our friends, is the very essence of the truck's build! Plenty of power is provided by 454 cubic inches of modern Chevrolet big block that, in addition to being professionally rebuilt by New York's Eric's Automotive Machine Shop, has been carefully weathered through scuffing and acid washing. Behind that fully sorted engine, a proven Turbo-Hydramatic 400 3-speed deals power to a familiar GM 10-bolt. That drivetrain rides a boxed chassis that's been Z'd eight inches up front and nine inches out back. Those bones easily blend old and new, with adjustable air bags joining old school lever shocks, fabricated control arms and radically reworked springs. Stops comes courtesy of power-assisted drums, which drain a floor-mount booster. Everything gets pushed by 10.00-15 Firestone Dragsters, which lap capped steelies. And those blades, custom-fabricated to align perfectly with predictable wires, help point 4.75/5.00-19 Firestone whitewalls. Swing the doors and you'll find a tasteful custom interior that continues this Rat's theme of combining maximum style with maximum usability. Custom fabricated and carefully weathered seats sport Rat Fink-themed leather that, you guessed it, is custom to this application. Those buckets front a pinstriped dash that's devoid of everything but temp, voltage and oil pressure telemetry. A custom floor frames an exaggerated shifter. And the driver grabs a skull knuckle buster to spin a quick-release steering wheel. Call, click or visit for your chance to own this killer custom!
