About Rat Rod Body
Hot rods have been popular expressions of creativity and mechanical capability since the 1920s, but when these customized vehicles became expensive toys for collectors to put on display and never drive, the rise of the rat rod began. Often taking on exaggerated features and looking somewhat unfinished to those unfamiliar with the style of customization, a rat rod body is characterized by showing the essential mechanics of the car. This shows off the rat rod parts you chose to create your unique design. A rat rod project starts with a desire to design a customized vehicle, and continues by selecting a body. The transformation continues using parts that enhance appearances and performance, pushing that body well beyond the capabilities of the original vehicle. Complete bodies such as Fords from the 1930s and 1940s are a strong start to the project, but you can combine individual parts to build the entire rat rod from scratch. Get started building your custom vehicle by browsing the vast inventory on eBay for a rat rod body or components so you can take the road and make an unforgettable statement.
