Its a common question as it doesn't really give an obvious clue..Its based on a Model T styling wise..80% is all home made using various donor parts or custom made..the engine is Big Block all aluminium chevy 8.3 ltr 800+ bhp ..home made chassis /custom suspension/brakes etc scary fast !

not a car you'd want to drive in the wet then (..apart from the lack of a roof)

 

it's certainly lovely looking - looks like a touch of the Panther DeVille in there too.  

 

whoever put that together has done a cracking job.  the chevy truck will be pretty special if that's anything to go by

The Rod was built 30 years ago by steve the truck owner..it still regularly wins prizes and goes to show if built properly will go on for many years as this has done.
