I noticed you titled your response “Ratty Rod”. I would like to take this opportunity to assure folks that this car is not going to be the cliche , “ Rat Rod”. A generic name that encompasses a lot of artistic creations, but usually has no theme related to true hot ridding, traditional hot rods, or race/muscle cars. In addition, the term Rat Rod, can be an insulting description of a car that is cobbled, unsafe, has booger welds, and questionable engineering.

In no matter or way do I intend to portray, build, emmulate, or replicate a car that could be termed a “rat rod”. Although the name is commonly misused and attributed to any car lacking a quality paint job, and I am sure someone will give this car that moniker at some point. I would qualify this build to be, more so, a faux “ barn find”, another overused word I detest. Think of this car as a street heavy brawler, with speed equipment no newer than 72-3, perhaps built by a guy drafted to Nam. He puts the car away and the same car is finally resurrected in 2018. In 1972 I was 11 years old. I was still playing with my “Hot Wheels.” This will be a grown up Hot Wheels.

I was on board at the first post Bentley. I have been a fan of "patina" and what I call "Rat Muscle" for a long time. Looks great!

Tommy, thanks for the support. I am just sorry that I already had plans for the tow tabs on this car or they would have been yours. Like you, I looked awhile. All the edifying comments help me to stay on this thing and see it through. Thanks.

Planting crops, mowing yards, and other spring chores had me sidetracked. But updates on there way. If I wanted to just show off parts acquired for the build, I could spend a week listing and showing. Rebuilt 3-4 factory Hurst 69 shifters recently. Recent finds- Moroso cool can cheap & NOS NMW driveshaft loop cheap.
