Flat Rat: A Slammed1950 Ford COE Firetruck On AirI know, I know, I stated I’d write-up a lot more of this 1950 Ford COE just above a 7 days in the past. My terrible, I got a very little distracted. I’ll expose why before long. But, just take these added shots of my penance.

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

Scott has owned the truck taxi about 10 decades now. Things truly obtained likely on the truck about 5 yrs in the past, with sizeable development staying produced all through the pandemic.

From behind the tilt cab to where by the custom 4-backlink starts off is most of a widened Chevy 3500 chassis. Forward of the entrance wheels is generally manufacturing facility Ford with signficant modifications performed to make the steering work 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 continue to keep as considerably initial as he could, but he did have to exchange a bit of sheet steel listed here and on the taxi. The new additions were being sprayed by Scott in possibly white or pink.

Scott and his son also manufactured all 11 feet of the mattress from scratch.

Almost nothing more than an English wheel and a Princess Car bead roller was utilized in the mattress development.

In fact, the whole truck was constructed in a alternatively humble residence garage. Proving the moment once more that where there is a will there is a way when it comes to do-it-on your own fabrication. Anything that certainly offered a little bit of determination for my personal challenge.

The tailgate of the truck is really a next COE front finish that has been modified to develop a tailgate. Scott filled the grill, built it hinge and took the Super Duty embossing from a late design ford.

“If this is not Super Obligation I never know what is,” Scott claimed.

For the eagle-eyed, sure the tail lights are rotated variations from a 65 Ford Mustang, Very intelligent if you inquire me.

 

Obviously, this truck is pretty considerably up my alley and I hope to see additional of it again soon.

Ontario is again jamming again and I’m totally in this article for it!
