The 1947 Chevrolet Rat Rod you see here looks as if the builder fused together an Ariel Atom and old rust-bucket. While that isn’t the exact DNA of this machine, it is a Frankenstein build with parts coming from three different sources.
The body is a 1947 Chevrolet half-ton with a chopped cab. According to the eBay listing the cab was stripped down to bare metal and clear coated with a copper pearl. The powertrain is a 5.3L V8 out of a 2005 Chevrolet Tahoe, and it’s backed by an automatic Turbo 400 transmission. A 1995 Mercury Cougar was picked apart and used as the rear frame, oddly, with an 8.8 independent rear suspension and 3.08 gears. The front frame comes from a 1995 S10, and features Bullstein drop spindles.
A Frankencar, indeed.
Other features of the rat rod include a crescent wrench shifter handle, drift hand-brake,
