Flat Rat: A Slammed1950 Ford COE Firetruck On Air

I know, I know, I claimed I’d submit additional of this 1950 Ford COE just over a 7 days in the past. My bad, I received a tiny distracted. I’ll expose why shortly. But, get these additional photographs of my penance.

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

Scott has owned the truck cab about 10 several years now. Points truly bought likely on the truck about 5 years in the past, with major progress becoming manufactured through the pandemic.

From behind the tilt cab to in which the personalized 4-website link starts off is most of a widened Chevy 3500 chassis. Forward of the front wheels is primarily manufacturing unit Ford with signficant modifications carried out to make the steering do the job at the truck’s new height.

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

Scott managed to hold as a great deal primary as he could, but he did have to swap a little bit of sheet metallic here and on the taxi. The new additions have been sprayed by Scott in both white or purple.

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

Almost nothing extra than an English wheel and a Princess Auto bead roller was made use of in the bed design.

In reality, the total truck was crafted in a rather humble residence garage. Proving the moment once again that in which there is a will there’s a way when it comes to do-it-you fabrication. Anything that absolutely delivered a bit of motivation for my very own challenge.

The tailgate of the truck is truly a second COE entrance finish that has been modified to generate a tailgate. Scott filled the grill, built it hinge and took the Super Duty embossing from a late design ford.

“If this is not Tremendous Obligation I really do not know what is,” Scott claimed.

For the eagle-eyed, yes the tail lights are rotated versions from a 65 Ford Mustang, Quite intelligent if you inquire me.


Certainly, this truck is quite significantly up my alley and I hope to see more of it again shortly.

Ontario is back again jamming again and I’m certainly here for it!
