This is a rat rod and not a show car. It is not perfect. Car is about 95% done with some little odds and ends to be finished. Car is tagged and insured and is fully street legal. It is an absolute blast to drive and gets an enormous amount of attention wherever it goes. More photos can be given upon request. Feel free to either email or call 864-873-7802 with any questions.
