I built this at home in my garage. 30 ford channeled 4 1/2 inch 302 ford motor, 5 speed with 69 mustang rear. My first for myself ( I'm 63 yrs old)
Chris Cooper- Rat Rod Nova
I built my version of a rat rod nova, flat black, viper red flame with hand painted trimmings, stock interior, and blower w/ no chrome on the engine. Lowered suspension, the front end tilts forward past the hood like some 40ís coupes do, it also slides off for engine repairs, and hood is cut out into flames like the ones on the car. Each side has different lengths of flames which is the original color of the car taped then the car was painted flat black.

I'm Steve Dunn in King City Ca. I started building my rod last year, shortly after the Memorial-Day holiday show in Paso (West coast kustoms). Kinda' a tribute to my Grandpa ,who I lost in '06. He picked up the 38 Chevy ton-an-a-half, from a local rancher for me when I was 10yrs old, I'm now 39 and goin' like hell on it. Found a donor 60 Caddy Fleetwood for engine, drivetrain and rear quarters,(soon to be bedsides, body was very straight. caddy lover would beat me for cuttin' it up). Built everything You can see; Frame- 2''x3'' tube, with under-cab laid flat for more clearance, 10'' Z @rear with caddy lower track bars and fabbed upper triangle for 3-link(great articulation for bags, bought them..); Quarter-elliptical front springs hangin' a 4'' drop F-100 I-beam with a hand fabbed A-frame lower link; Grill shell is 34' chevy pickup with the origional 38' headlamps stuck to it; Used the o.e. top-loader portion of truck 4-speed and made a shifter for the caddy automatic; Junkyard 66 caddy tilt-telescopic column an wheel and numerous other mods I don't have the time to go into right now.
Here's 30 year old Josh Griffith's 1924 "T" Bucket. He built this rat rod for under $1500 cash. It's powered by a 1967 Chevy 350- 350hp small block. A 2" x 3" boxed tubing frame has a Cal Custom t-body, GM rear end out of a 87 TA, 4- wheel disc brakes, and the front end is Model "A" fitted with a Speedway spindle kit for disc brakes. He spent all his free time last summer building it and now it time to have some fun. What better place than a Drag Strip.
