Story by Gary Horstkorta

At first glance, it looks like a nearly finished 1934 Ford hotrod: solid wheels, Ford hubcaps, fenderless body, lowered front end and suicide doors. However, moving closer you see four-wheel disc brakes, control rods, anti-roll bars, a digital dash and a full roll cage.

This is not a regular hotrod, but something much more–perhaps a real wolf in sheep’s clothing?

Happy New Year. I bumped this story back to the home page just because.

Are there any more technical pics of this car around? Specifically of the front suspension? Very interesting setup.

We should have more. Once we're all back in the office on Thursday, we can check and upload.

I'd love to see more details on this, too- I'd LOVE to start a Hot/Rat Rod styled project to camouflage a track and road weapon like this.

How "light" are old fords? I've always wanted to do an all import version of this with this body. Like Miata skeleton, k24 all motor, and inboard suspension. 
but NONE of that weirdo steampunk/rusted to E36 M3e "fake patina" wannabe stuff.

For your viewing pleasure (and because David told me to), I've added more technical pictures. Enjoy!

They're pretty light. I wouldn't be surprised if this car is in the 2500 lb range. Very cool to see one of these made into a track weapon. I'd probably have gone with unequal length control arms up front instead of a twin I beam, but the result does look a bit more period-correct.

I always wanted to do a Fiat Topolino body on a 124 Chassis. Maybe nothing near the workmanship, fabrication, and power of the Sewer Pickle, but it still would have been fun
