1931 Ford Model A Custom

There’s a guy at who works at our local salvage yard in Charleston who has built a ‘rat rod’ out of various components skimmed off of cars on their way into the yard, starting with the body of an unknown depression-era origin. I don’t like him or his car because he yelled at me for trying to remove parts from it on my first visit, both because it was parked in a friggin’ junkyard and it was a complete pile. Here you have a similar vision with slightly, only slightly, better execution. Find this 1931 Ford on a C6 Chassis in Prescott, AZ for $15,200. This post is part of DT's 2016 Birthday Celebration of 100 cars; enjoy the ride!


Perhaps the best thing to do in this case is to remove the Ford body and replace it with nothing but a 5 gallon bucket for a seat. Step 2 would be taking the Ford body and putting it back on a Ford frame. Two projects for the price of two. Hey, wait a minute…
