Usually a backyard or garage project, Rat Rods often start entirely from scratch, or by combining the parts from two junkers to make little engines that could. The ideal Rat Rod looks like it shouldn’t be able to hold together, much less move. Revered as much for aesthetic as for practical value, Rat Rods are in constant need of adjustment and tweaking, making them a fun project for garage hounds with extra parts and time.
Procure an old car. Visit a local junkyard to check out the oldest cars that are still intact, which might make good candidates. Several Rat-Rodding websites also exist with links to possibilities. Look for one that is not especially rusted, and has its essential shape is still intact. Typically, Rats are made from American cars, often pick-ups, manufactured pre-1960. Popular models for Rat Rods include:
- Mid-century Chevrolet pick-up trucks
- ’30s-era Fords, esp. the “Model A”
- Early Chrysler hemi engines are popular, as well as flathead V-8s
