In a touch of irony, it’s the unfinished nature of a Rat Rod that could be considered the most complete car. After all, from their inception cars were purpose built and that one purpose was to be driven. Rat Rods began from a counter culture movement to Hot Rods which were being expensively built and rarely driven. Rat Rods aimed to turn that concept on its head and return cars to a raw, drive first mentality and it’s their lack of amenities, and often sheet metal, which help them to achieve that. However, through the years, like any trend, they have gotten more expensive and complete as the never-ending game of one-upping each other trickled down to the Rat Rod scene.
This Rat Rod got its start as a 1929 Chevrolet Tudor and since then has seen some serious changes. Powered by a 350 Chevy engine with an automatic transmission this ’29 is a real head turner on performance alone. Take into account the stance, rust finish and white wall tires and it’s a classic Rat Rod bound not just to turn heads, but break necks as you cruise past.
