Satan's Rat-Rod: 1931 Ford - /BIG MUSCLE
• Henry Kessler
The engine is out of a 1952 Diamond-Reo tractor and makes 1,640 lb-ft of
torque. The chassis is pieced together from old light poles from the City
of Hollywood. The body... that's from a 1931 Ford. Meet Gretchen, one of
the coolest rat-rods we've ever seen and a ride that turns heads wherever
it goes. This ain't no hybrid, instead it's a black smoke belching,
gasoline guzzling, animal of a car that's not only amazing to look at, but
with some cool hidden engineering, has the ability to surprise even the
most hardened of motor-heads.

So the first day off the trailer we took out the car and it died on us
leaving us stranded. Started troubleshooting with the builder and found
out it wasn't getting spark. Tracing wires we found that the ballast
resistor wire had been pulled out of the spade connector. Simple fix so
we're back up and running. More videos to come.
