A half century of pickup trucks and hot rod culture will cross the block at the Barrett-Jackson Orange County auction this weekend in the form of this outrageous rat rod 1932 Ford pickup.
The Frankenstein creation is built on a custom frame and rides on Ford Model A front springs and a four-link rear suspension with Jaguar coilovers, a DANA 60 rear end and dually rear wheels off of a 1993 Dodge. What’s left of the original body is chopped, channeled and sectioned 4-inches each way.
The radiator shell from a 1947 International tractor fronts a 1956 Chevy three-core radiator and the ride is finished in a natural patina..
Power comes from a fully overhauled 1969 Ford 390 cubic-inch V8 protected by a Civil Defense helmet.
A three-speed automatic transmission sits loud and proud in the sparse interior, while a ’35 Ford banjo steering wheel turns the box from a ’52 Chevy pickup.
Wild custom truck hits the auction block.
