1946 Ford Rat Rod Wrecker
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.
Original Engine: No
1968 Chevy 327 had a bad block, so I found a 350 block and built it from bottom to top into a 340HP 350 V8 with 4-barrell Holley 650 Carb, Edelbrock intake, COMP cam, 300HP double-hump heads, lake-style headers–backed by a 350TH trans, w/ B&M shifter
Wheels and tires
Wilwood wide 5 hubs on front, dual wheels on back, 4" wide white walls on all wheels.
Wilwood brakes, drums on rear
B&M shift kit and shifter
