If you’ve been looking for a rat rod with some show and go, this might be the right one for you! It is a 1938 Ford pickup and can be found here on eBay with a buy-it-now price just shy of $17,000. Located in Hesperia, California, northeast of Los Angeles, the truck features some race goodies and it runs 11’s at the drag strip!
The interior is more race car than a cruiser. The passenger door only opens from the inside and there are no side windows. You can see the racing harnesses and the back window is plexiglass. The car is still streetable though with working turn signals, horn, lights, gas gauge, and speedometer (although the seller says it isn’t accurate). You can also see the floor shifter which appears to be a full-on racing unit.
The power plant is kept simple with a 350 small block topped with a Holley 650 cfm carburetor. It features a mild roller cam, aluminum heads, forged pistons, and a one-piece rear main. The transmission is a turbo 350 which transfers power to a 10-bolt Auburn Posi rear end housing 3.55 gears. The drivetrain only has about 2,500 miles on it (probably a quarter-mile at a time).
