Flat Rat: A Slammed1950 Ford COE Firetruck On Air

I know, I know, I explained I’d submit much more of this 1950 Ford COE just around a week ago. My negative, I got a tiny distracted. I’ll reveal why before long. But, choose these more pics of my penance.

This truck, regarded as the Flat Rat hails from Keswick Ontario and was built by it’s proprietor Scott Badger (@keswickscott).

Scott has owned the truck cab about 10 decades now. Items truly got heading on the truck about five yrs ago, with major progress staying manufactured for the duration of the pandemic.

From behind the tilt cab to the place the custom made four-url commences is most of a widened Chevy 3500 chassis. Ahead of the front wheels is generally factory Ford with signficant modifications carried out to make the steering get the job done at the truck’s new height.

The motor is a 7.3L Powerstroke with a T4 turbo improve backed by an automated transmission.

Scott managed to retain as much unique as he could, but he did have to swap a little bit of sheet metallic in this article and on the taxi. The new additions were sprayed by Scott in possibly white or red.

Scott and his son also produced all 11 ft of the bed from scratch.

Nothing at all more than an English wheel and a Princess Auto bead roller was used in the bed building.

In simple fact, the overall truck was constructed in a somewhat humble household garage. Proving when once more that the place there is a will there is a way when it will come to do-it-yourself fabrication. Some thing that certainly presented a bit of commitment for my have task.

The tailgate of the truck is truly a next COE entrance stop that has been modified to build a tailgate. Scott crammed the grill, built it hinge and took the Super Duty embossing from a late model ford.

“If this is not Tremendous Responsibility I really don’t know what is,” Scott reported.

For the eagle-eyed, yes the tail lights are rotated versions from a 65 Ford Mustang, Really intelligent if you inquire me.


Clearly, this truck is really substantially up my alley and I hope to see much more of it again before long.

Ontario is again jamming once again and I’m completely below for it!
