BangShift reader Lon tipped us off to this amazing find on the Huntsville, Alabama Craigslist site. The basic foundation of what you’re looking at here is a Ford Ranger truck. The cab has been chopped six inches and the frame has been bobbed. A fire breathing inline six and corresponding transmission from a Ford Falcon has been installed up front, and to handle all that power massive Mickey Thompson slicks are out back. Oh, there is also a 1932 Ford grill shell up front which is what we think is supposed to make this a “rat rod”. Without the 1932 Ford grill, what do we really have other than one absolutely mangled Ford Ranger truck. Of course, advertising this…uhhhh….truck(?) as a “mangled Ford Ranger” would probably not attract potential buyers like the current title of BADA$$ Rat Rod.
The seller claims that the cab has a “custom etched paint job” which seems to be a fancy way of saying, “fake patina”. The “custom headers” are works of fabrication artistry that you’re not going to find on many similar vehicles. Thankfully, there are very few similar vehicles. That’s better for all of us. The gas tank is mounted directly behind the cab on top of the custom red oak “bed”. It seems to be in the perfect position to explode and incinerate the occupants in a rear end collision.
This isn’t as bad as the International cab on the Pontaic Grand Am….or is it?
The seller is accepting serious cash offers as well as any number of trades ranging from a boat to a Jeep rock crawler or “railbuggy”. We’re going to pass….maybe you want in!
Thanks to Lon for the tip!
