1938 Ford rat rod build

Recommended Posts

Yes. We'll be fitting wider wheels on the back and possibly skinnier wheels on the front. No power steering.

The old mustangs were all open differentials as far as I know. The stingray rear end will be able to hold a lot of torque so it will probably be staying there. Ideally, LSD, wheelie bars and a parachute would be cool but cost is the issue.

@treks I hope the hidden red earth lead meets with your satisfaction 😉

It's better now, but I still see a bit of red showing. :-o

Waiting for parts. Which suits me because I'm too busy with work at the minute.

Ok so it’s been a while since I updated this. The project isn’t over yet.

The original funder lost his job and ran out of money so the project was shelved. 

A new funder is on board so the build will start again soon. We have a huge turbo diesel Cummins engine just sitting there on the shelf doing nothing so expect the 351 to get junked and a huge high torque motor capable of rolling coal to be installed. 

Lets see what happens. I can promise you it will be epic.
