Flat Rat: A Slammed1950 Ford COE Firetruck On Air


I know, I know, I explained I’d post far more of this 1950 Ford COE just more than a 7 days ago. My bad, I received a small distracted. I’ll expose why shortly. But, take these further pics of my penance.

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

Scott has owned the truck cab about ten many years now. Matters genuinely acquired going on the truck about 5 several years ago, with significant development becoming produced during the pandemic.

From powering the tilt taxi to the place the custom made 4-connection commences is most of a widened Chevy 3500 chassis. Ahead of the entrance wheels is mainly manufacturing unit Ford with signficant modifications performed to make the steering function at the truck’s new top.

The motor is a 7.3L Powerstroke with a T4 turbo up grade backed by an computerized transmission.

Scott managed to preserve as a great deal first as he could, but he did have to switch a little bit of sheet metallic below and on the cab. The new additions were sprayed by Scott in either white or purple.

Scott and his son also produced all 11 toes of the mattress from scratch.

Absolutely nothing much more than an English wheel and a Princess Automobile bead roller was employed in the bed development.

In truth, the complete truck was designed in a rather humble dwelling garage. Proving at the time again that the place there is a will there is a way when it arrives to do-it-yourself fabrication. Something that absolutely presented a little bit of inspiration for my personal venture.

The tailgate of the truck is essentially a next COE front conclude that has been modified to develop a tailgate. Scott crammed the grill, made it hinge and took the Super Duty embossing from a late model ford.

“If this is not Super Duty I do not know what is,” Scott said.

For the eagle-eyed, sure the tail lights are rotated versions from a 65 Ford Mustang, Very clever if you question me.


Naturally, this truck is extremely much up my alley and I hope to see more of it once more quickly.

Ontario is back again jamming once more and I’m unquestionably listed here for it!
