New to this site, a link on another site brought me here. In the gathering stage of building a rat rod/ custom/traditional....Don't even know what I'm actually going to build. It will probably be a Bart Built when I'm done cause this time I'm not going to follow any rules I'm just going to do it the way I want and what feels right at the time. I followed the rules to a t when I did my 73 scout. It will be great to just do one the way I want. Its a 56 I.H. truck. and I plan on dropping it on a scout travaler frame and drive train complete with a 345 v-8, 727 torqueflite and dana 20 transfer case. probably use 354 geared dana 44's. good all around axle. this will probably always be a work in progress. this seems like a cool site with some great people in it. well a big HELLO to everyone.
