This ’47 Chevy Rat Rod is Part Mercury Cougar

Rat rods are nothing new. They have been around for generations. Essentially these are powerful hot rods that are pieced together from various bits, and have a ratty, rough finish when complete. This particular rod is part 1947 Chevy and part 1995 Mercury Cougar.

The Chevy part is a ’47 truck cab that was chopped and sanded to metal. It was then grafted to the front end of a 1995 S10 truck and lowered. Its big V8 engine came from a 2005 Tahoe SUV and displaces 5.3L. The car’s independent rear suspension came courtesy of the Cougar. The body is coated in a copper pearl finish, and there’s a big wing out back.

It’s a Frankenstein creation for sure, but somehow it looks really good in its bastardization.
