Flat Rat: A Slammed1950 Ford COE Firetruck On Air


I know, I know, I stated I’d publish additional of this 1950 Ford COE just in excess of a week in the past. My terrible, I received a minor distracted. I’ll reveal why before long. But, take these more photos of my penance.

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

Scott has owned the truck cab about ten a long time now. Issues seriously obtained going on the truck about five a long time back, with major progress currently being made in the course of the pandemic.

From powering the tilt taxi to where by the customized four-link begins is most of a widened Chevy 3500 chassis. Forward of the entrance wheels is largely manufacturing unit Ford with signficant modifications finished to make the steering work at the truck’s new peak.

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

Scott managed to keep as considerably original as he could, but he did have to substitute a little bit of sheet metallic here and on the cab. The new additions were sprayed by Scott in both white or red.

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

Practically nothing more than an English wheel and a Princess Auto bead roller was applied in the bed design.

In actuality, the total truck was designed in a somewhat humble home garage. Proving the moment yet again that where by there is a will there’s a way when it arrives to do-it-by yourself fabrication. One thing that unquestionably delivered a bit of determination for my have undertaking.

The tailgate of the truck is really a second COE front end that has been modified to develop a tailgate. Scott loaded the grill, created it hinge and took the Tremendous Duty embossing from a late model ford.

“If this isn’t Tremendous Responsibility I never know what is,” Scott reported.

For the eagle-eyed, yes the tail lights are rotated variations from a 65 Ford Mustang, Fairly clever if you inquire me.


Clearly, this truck is extremely substantially up my alley and I hope to see a lot more of it all over again before long.

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