Flat Rat: A Slammed1950 Ford COE Firetruck On Air

I know, I know, I reported I’d put up a lot more of this 1950 Ford COE just about a 7 days back. My bad, I acquired a little distracted. I’ll reveal why before long. But, just take these extra pictures of my penance.

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

Scott has owned the truck cab about ten many years now. Things genuinely obtained likely on the truck about 5 years back, with substantial progress being built for the duration of the pandemic.

From guiding the tilt taxi to in which the customized four-url starts off is most of a widened Chevy 3500 chassis. Ahead of the entrance wheels is primarily factory Ford with signficant modifications finished to make the steering work at the truck’s new top.

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

Scott managed to preserve as significantly initial as he could, but he did have to exchange a little bit of sheet metallic below and on the taxi. The new additions ended up sprayed by Scott in possibly white or pink.

Scott and his son also built all 11 feet of the bed from scratch.

Nothing at all extra than an English wheel and a Princess Car bead roller was used in the mattress development.

In reality, the whole truck was constructed in a instead humble dwelling garage. Proving the moment again that in which there is a will there is a way when it will come to do-it-on your own fabrication. One thing that undoubtedly delivered a little bit of drive for my own project.

The tailgate of the truck is essentially a 2nd COE entrance end that has been modified to build a tailgate. Scott stuffed the grill, designed it hinge and took the Super Duty embossing from a late product ford.

“If this is not Tremendous Duty I really do not know what is,” Scott mentioned.

For the eagle-eyed, certainly the tail lights are rotated variations from a 65 Ford Mustang, Really intelligent if you inquire me.


Definitely, this truck is incredibly a lot up my alley and I hope to see much more of it once again before long.

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