This 1946 Ford F-1 Rat Rod Wrecker once belonged to Nettle's Towing in Vero Beach, Florida. The cab of a 46 Ford was paired with a stock car frame, Wilwood wide 5 hubs on front, GM 3/4 ton 14-bolt dually rear end, and a 1968 Camaro 327ci engine with double hump heads, .480 lift COMP Cam, and Lake-style headers. All the rust, wear, and tear on this baby was naturally created by time, weather, and work. The oversized Crosby Crane hook adds to its Rat Rod charm. This, by all accounts, is a 100% original and one-of-a-kind hot rod. There may be other rat rod wreckers, but there's only one Midnight Rider Rat Rod Wrecker... and it's all mine. Award winning and trophy grabbing, it turns heads and makes friends everywhere it goes!

Paint and exterior

Weathered, beaten, chipped, pitted, bits of worn and peeling original paint... this baby is what all the rat rodders try to achieve if they don't have it naturally. It is truly a thing of great beauty.

Upholstery and interior

Rust, bare metal, tons of signs describe the dash, door panels, and custom made bench seat. Road signs, license plates, and other miscellaneous items inhabit the floor boards and door panels. The headliner is made of Native-American made blankets.
