Despite its aggressive and mean rat rod look, this 1964 Volkswagen Beetle looks rather normal at first sight! But if you look closer, you will see that it’s packing a Continental O-470 airplane engine!!! It was built by ITW hotrods for the rat rod magazine build off in 2014. Still not impressed enough?

If you’re not familiar with the event you probably don’t know the rules. The competitors are supposed to build an insane rat rod for under $3,000, in just 30 days. Now, that sounds crazy and impossible. However, in the competition in 2014 this was the only VW, and the only rod powered by an airplane engine, so it drew a lot of attention. This Beetle is a wicked combination of a 1936 Chevrolet body and a 1958 TSU 470 Continental airplane motor. Unusual but amazing mix, isn’t it? Check out the cool rat rod!
