We built this beauty in 2014 ready for my lad’s prom. William passed his test back in 2015 and used his Rat Rod to get to school – why wouldn’t you 🙂
Based on a 1954 Riley saloon and converted to a pick-up truck in true hillbilly style we built her with a 5.0L Ford V8 engine with the exhaust exiting skyward through a couple of tractor stacks, along with a Salisbury axle, strapped in with Watts linkage to keep thing tidy in corners!
The pick-up bed is hand-fashioned from crates and is ideal for running moonshine, although not recommended if you want to stay on the right side of the law! Most of the panel work is hand crafted, as are the two Bomber Seats in the front. She has few creature comforts other than a good sound system and a heater, which is more than most rat rods have.
Used by Joe Brown clothing for their fashion shoots.
