It recently appeared on eBay and it makes a compelling case for this week’s “coolest thing on four wheels”…if someone was keeping track.
The stock Chevrolet V8 puts its power to the ground through a Turbo 400 automatic transmission, which is shifted–wait for it, wait for it–using a crescent wrench in place of a gear knob. The “shift boot” at the bottom? That’s a Crown Royal Purple bag. Somehow it seems fitting.
All tallied up, it would appear that at least four cars gave their lives so that this rat rod could exist. And what a machine it is.
