Now available at our Philadelphia showroom, Gateway Classic Cars welcomes this amazing 1927 Ford Model T Rat Rod! This car has an amazing story with ties to an American hero, Butch Johnson, a hot rodder and World War II veteran who served valiantly in the Pacific Theatre. A true father-son project, this 1927 Model T was radically modified in Santa Ana with Butch’s story artfully incorporated in the build. Wearing olive-drab Valspar® Etching Primer the car boasts tasteful pinstriping done by well-known artist Dennis Ricklefs. Climb in the cabin and take a seat in those buckets from a Lockheed Electra, that’s right aircraft seats with accompanying seat belts! Wrap your hands around modified Model A steering wheel wrapped shellacked fishing line and check out the Model A brass radiator cap that sits in the center! Are those rods on the column? They sure are! The column drop was made with a pair of Model T rods while the Jones® tachometer mount is a connecting rod from a Fiat 850 Spyder! Shift your eyes downward and know you will literally putting the pedal to the metal as they are made from oval plates that connect the bumper rails on a Model A! The car sits on stock Model T frame rails boxed and a 9-inch rear step. Strap in and start this radical ride to hear that 181CID Mercruiser Engine rumble! Rated at 210 horsepower, this inline four-cylinder engine will get you where you need to go and is heard through those long exhaust pipes that run alongside the driver side! Fuel is sent via Alghon® Mechanical fuel injection and a Hillborne® Belt-Driven pump that ensures proper delivery. All that power is transferred to a 21-spline T5 transmission linked to a 1948 Ford Banjo rear end with 3.73 gears! The ride is smooth thanks to Firestone® dirt track tires with the fronts 5.00-16 and rears 8.90-16 mounted on 16” Kelsey Hayes® wire wheels! This one-of-a-kind custom car won’t be around for long! The attention to detail is absolutely amazing from the old stove knob trunk handle to the overflow tank, Butch Johnson’s government issued canteen that wears Chrysanthemum pins believed to denote confirm Allied infantry kills and taken from a Japanese Lieutenant during World War II. All of these things and then some come with this unique rat rod. This car is ready for its next chapter and for you to be sitting behind the wheel.
