A great street rod is all about an unashamed performance appearance with secret cool rewards hidden throughout, and this 1946 Dodge Pickup does it perfectly. It has a flame-kissed outlaw style backed by plenty of V8 growl. So it's going to turn heads and get people talking.
This truck is pure rat rod cool. The matte black paint has a cool look of fading/patina that gives some attitude to the classic steel. And, of course, the intimidation factor is amplified by the air-brushed-style .....
flames in front. And we love all the classic details like the old-school Ford grille, Lancer-style shining hubcaps, blue-dot tail lights, real wood bed rails, and a fun checkerboard truck bed with spun aluminum fuel tank. And getting the stance to look terrific means taking the time to channel the cab over the frame and bed.
The interior has been carefully crafted to be comfortable without betraying the minimalist attitude. For example, the bench seat and door panels don't get too fancy, but the bright red and black piping is an attractive color package. And while rat rods are known for using southwestern blankets for everything from the upholstery to a headliner, this pays tribute to that with just one tasteful piece around the transmission tunnel. And because this was built with driving in mind, you have cool details like the wood-rimmed sports steering wheel, power steering, SunPro auxiliary readouts, and a very handy tach mounted in the center of the driver's dash.
This engine was made to be on display. The big air intake, polished valve covers, and steel braided lines give this the right look of style and substance. At the center is a 350 cubic-inch V8. It's built with a Holley four-barrel carburetor, an aluminum high-rise intake, and headers directly feeding the outside with an awesome rumble. It's a strong motor, and you get better control thanks to a manual valve body on the TH350 transmission. And don't forget to look at the undercarriage photos, where you'll spot a strong frame, an upgraded independent A-arm front end, and front disc brakes.
You know you've already fallen in love/lust for being the bad boy, especially since it's at such a nice price. Call now!
