    Its a 52 to 54 Ford
    With a chopped Caddy parked next to it

  4. Oh man, its time. We have to come clean, its no use denying it anymore.
    Australia is afflicted with Rat Rods too.
    It is true.

    Anyway, WTF is that thing? Dodge?
    *I thought the side windows looked too square for Ford? Or am I just hopeing....*

  5. We all know the true nationals happen at Phillip Island!

    I was told its a 54' ford. I always thought it was a car built in the states and imported here, not sure if someone told me that also or if i just pressumed so because it has a floor covered in U.S. number plates.
    The Caddy has a poor chop, mostly bog (bondo) both cars have been around for awhile now.
  7. Aarrgrgghhhhhhh.....

    Which is why I never hightailed my ass there in the first place.

    Anyone got any info on this? Built here or the U.S.? [​IMG]
  10. Looks LHD, probably an import.
  11. From what I know, it was built here in Jake of the Dukes CC in Canberra.

    Kool ride....

  12. Well there you go! It is a nice looking car, we have such a small trad movement its good to see any car show up!
  13. That's why I spelled "Caddy" in quotes in the first place (grille and bumper pieces). And it is still beyond hideous.

    No, another import by Jake. It did have a blown flathead when first imported. Other changes were made for rego here.
    Fonzie could have had plenty of photos at the Nationals but there were a handful of cool cars.

    That 52-54 Ford with the Caddy front looks like something out of a Mel Gibson movie.
