Flat Rat: A Slammed1950 Ford COE Firetruck On Air

I know, I know, I explained I’d put up far more of this 1950 Ford COE just over a week in the past. My undesirable, I got a minor distracted. I’ll expose why shortly. But, get these further pictures of my penance.

This truck, known as the Flat Rat hails from Keswick Ontario and was crafted by it is owner Scott Badger (@keswickscott).

Scott has owned the truck taxi about 10 a long time now. Matters seriously received heading on the truck about 5 a long time in the past, with important progress being created through the pandemic.

From driving the tilt taxi to wherever the custom four-hyperlink begins is most of a widened Chevy 3500 chassis. Forward of the entrance wheels is typically factory Ford with signficant modifications finished to make the steering perform at the truck’s new peak.

The motor is a 7.3L Powerstroke with a T4 turbo enhance backed by an automatic transmission.

Scott managed to retain as a lot original as he could, but he did have to swap a bit of sheet steel below and on the cab. The new additions ended up sprayed by Scott in both white or red.

Scott and his son also produced all 11 toes of the bed from scratch.

Nothing far more than an English wheel and a Princess Vehicle bead roller was applied in the mattress design.

In simple fact, the total truck was developed in a relatively humble household garage. Proving once once more that wherever there’s a will there is a way when it comes to do-it-on your own fabrication. Anything that definitely provided a little bit of determination for my individual undertaking.

The tailgate of the truck is really a second COE entrance end that has been modified to build a tailgate. Scott stuffed the grill, manufactured it hinge and took the Super Duty embossing from a late design ford.

“If this isn’t Super Obligation I really do not know what is,” Scott claimed.

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


Certainly, this truck is extremely much up my alley and I hope to see far more of it again quickly.

Ontario is back again jamming once more and I’m totally below for it!
