1947 Ford PRO STREET Rat ROD Pickup Called - “Deliverance"

With two antique spittoons being used as breathers this 1947 Ford Rat Rod pickup is one bad ass pro-street automobile. This is no ordinary Rat Rod, it was designed and built by a 20 year experienced Winston Cup race car builder. It is built with race quality parts for superior performance and reliability.

“Deliverance” is equipped with a Chevrolet 454 big block 4-Bolt main V-8, Weiand Tunnel Ram, dual 750 cfm Holley Carburetors, hand fabricated valve covers, stainless headers, MSD distributor, MSD HVC Ignition, 7 inch side pipes, 3 speed Saginaw transmission, narrowed rear end, Trac-9 Housing with a True Trac Locker with a 3.82 gear.

The interior is custom built with some very unique features with a glider swing for a seat, the floor pedals are TB & C Series 600 Race pedals and the floor is sheet copper with swirl marks from a scotch brite wheel over a treated plywood frame.

The front suspension is from a Chevy S10, S10 steering, powder coated tubular A Arms, and adjustable coil over shocks and the frame is hand built with Steel wall tubing. The body was sanded down smooth to bare metal with enough patina and paint left for a nice contrast. The body was then coated with a ceramic tile water based sealer. The hood is a lift off with 3 pins and the tail lights are 1940 Ford replicas. Custom wheels are Valken polished aluminum with Hoosier Pro Street tires.
