1936 Rat Rod Chevy Pickup Saw This Rod’s Birth Now It’s Reborn Sorta – Shop for a Print Here ~:0)
When we walked into the grounds of the 2013 Boerne Texas Corvette Show by the back way we came upon this 1936 Rat Rod Chevy Pickup. Yeah I know. It was a car show made primarily of Corvettes. Even got the marque Corvette in the name of the show. Four Hundred or more Chevrolet Corvettes but this pickup – this fab 1936 Rat Rod Chevy Pickup was the first rod I see. That’s what I do – – I See Rat Rods! ~:0)

Déjà Vu 1936 Rat Rod Chevy Pickup?
The mill’s a 283 small block Chevy. Plenty of power for a 1936 Rat Rod Chevy Pickup this lithe. The tranny is a T10 Borg and Warner 4 Speed – a stout transmission. The whole frame’s been boxed for strength. The cab’s been channeled. And the rod has a new front straight axle w/ Vega Cross-Steer. A new Walker radiator takes ample care of cooling and a Painless wiring set complete with LED’s means no electrical probs. And the chevy rat rod truck comes with tons of extra parts. Bargain! ~:0)

Just Walk On By
It didn’t take but two-seconds to turn away from the overtly over-done mint-green – perfectly restored Chevy pickup in my path. And step into the gravity-well around this 1936 Rat Rod Chevy Pickup! This bewdy belonged to Allen Hoover a hill country resident rodder. I say belonged to Allen b/c the chevy rat rod was for sale at the time. The asking price on the rod was $12,500 USD. That’s not a bad go when U go down the list of extras on this rat rod truck. ~:0)
Allen’s 1936 Rat Rod Chevy Pickup
Ol’ Allen’s got a fine ride in this 1936 Rat Rod Chevy Pickup from all the way back in the day. He’s selling and he’s willing to entertain a trade. I’ve got his phone number around here somewhere. Guess I could share it with a serious buyer if the truck is still available. No Promises! It was such a great hit at the show it’s probably gone. But that sticker price might have been a stickler for many. I know when I’m rod shopping I’m often surprised by an asking price. Then again I’m often startled by the settling deal in the end. Trade-ins can often put a nice deal over the line for a happy transaction. U never know! ~:0) VivaChas Hot Rod Art!
