It's been well over a year since I last built a rod, but I'm back with this '30 Ford Model-A nicknamed "Dirty Lil' Rodent". I came up with the nickname after reading through some rat rod nicknames online. They were all just the common 'Black Widow, Widow Maker, Devil's Rat etc', but I wanted something a bit different, to sought the rod. With its miss-matched doors which are supposed to look like they were formally light blue, and with faded No.3 and MOON stickers, slammed (and I mean only 1millimetre of ground clearance) stance, heavily chopped roof, severe channel, shaven door handles and mirrors, this rod is one tough lookin' Model-A! The chassis has slotted front rails and is Z'ed at the rear. It also features a large-ish fuel cell, huge diff and lots more detail. The main idea for this rod was to put as much detail as possible, including some unique details too. You'll probably notice the hand-operated indicator on the driver-side door, the cowl-steering, Californian license plate, checker firewall, exterior hinges, and more. The interior features a Mexican blanket seat cover with a light blue bench seat, white-faced gauges and a long shifter with a skull's head with helmet. It's pretty basic, but that's just how rats are! ;) The engine is what I wanted to make the 'show piece' of the rat; with a 254ci Mercury Flathead featuring everything there is on a real Merc Flatty, such as a finned Beehive oil filter, finned valve covers, ignition leads, alternator, twin carburettors, radiator hoses, straight pipes (ear bursting goodness), and lots more! I hope you all like this as much as I do, it's my favourite car I've built! If you look closely, you can tell that this rod is a throw-back to my earlier rods!

Amazing! Definitely one of your best efforts. The engine, complete with the dual carbs, is simply a work of art, and you've done a great job with all of the other rat rod details as well.
