1938 Ford 81C Half-Ton Pickup Rat Rod
Hi There, I have decided to sell my truck
I finished this truck 6 years ago and have driven it about 15,000 miles since then
I am going to start a new project and need more room, so this one has to go...!
It runs good and the brakes work fine
I built this truck with parts from pre 1959 vehicles except for some gauges and such
It does get attention but for me it is a daily driver to work and such
It needs some work so you may want to take that into consideration
I have driven it to Ohio, Illinois and Kentucky, but I live dangerously
Please look at all of the photos before you ask questions...
It is sold "AS-IS" - "WHERE-IS"
The wheels are Kelsey Hayes wire spoke painted Porsche Red, rear tires are 750- 16 Bias ply and fronts are 205-70-16 Radials
All Tires will need to be replaced in the next year or so.
