s10 rat

I knew a guy in salinas Cal that did 2 of the graft kits, the first was the 50 ford fiberglass parts on a 90's T bird,, the other project was glass parts on an s10 cab to look like a 39 stude truck The truck project had panels that fit over the doors and rear of the cab to copy the shape of a chopped top. He was running full fenders on his. I googled s 10 39 studebaker and it's kreative rodwerks in arizona.

s-10 ratrod

Hello I am the creator of the pancaked s-10 shown in the pic up top, the massive chop and section was necessary to get the proportions right. As far as putting a drop axle in it and building a new frame is defeating the purpose if I wanted to build a period correct rod I would have used period correct body. Also I wanted to ad that the radiator was going to be mounted in the back of the cab so I didn't have to use a grill that belongs on a thirties car . I sold the truck and it got rebuilt in a different way.
