Flat Rat: A Slammed1950 Ford COE Firetruck On Air

I know, I know, I reported I’d publish a lot more of this 1950 Ford COE just over a week in the past. My poor, I obtained a tiny distracted. I’ll expose why quickly. But, just take these more images of my penance.

This truck, regarded as the Flat Rat hails from Keswick Ontario and was crafted by it’s owner Scott Badger (@keswickscott).

Scott has owned the truck cab about 10 decades now. Items really bought heading on the truck about five many years back, with sizeable development currently being manufactured all through the pandemic.

From at the rear of the tilt cab to in which the personalized 4-url commences is most of a widened Chevy 3500 chassis. Forward of the front wheels is largely manufacturing facility Ford with signficant modifications done to make the steering function at the truck’s new peak.

The motor is a 7.3L Powerstroke with a T4 turbo up grade backed by an automatic transmission.

Scott managed to keep as a great deal authentic as he could, but he did have to switch a bit of sheet metallic in this article and on the cab. The new additions were being sprayed by Scott in both white or crimson.

Scott and his son also made all 11 ft of the bed from scratch.

Absolutely nothing more than an English wheel and a Princess Car bead roller was used in the bed building.

In truth, the entire truck was constructed in a alternatively humble residence garage. Proving as soon as once more that wherever there is a will there is a way when it will come to do-it-you fabrication. Something that absolutely offered a little bit of drive for my possess venture.

The tailgate of the truck is truly a 2nd COE entrance stop that has been modified to generate a tailgate. Scott loaded the grill, designed it hinge and took the Super Duty embossing from a late product ford.

“If this isn’t Tremendous Responsibility I never know what is,” Scott stated.

For the eagle-eyed, indeed the tail lights are rotated versions from a 65 Ford Mustang, Pretty intelligent if you check with me.

 

Definitely, this truck is quite substantially up my alley and I hope to see more of it once more quickly.

Ontario is back jamming all over again and I’m certainly listed here for it!
