Jeep Hot Rod – a cool build doesn’t have to be expensive!

Jeep hot rodJeep Hot Rod! Ward Williams is an off-roader and a Jeep enthusiast. He always wanted to build a hot rod to cruise around town, so it’s no surprise he built a low-slung flatfender. He used spare parts he had laying around from other projects and combined them to build a fun cruiser for around town. Ward started with a 1947 tub that came with a title but little else. He put the tub on a boxed military M38A1 chassis and built a bench seat and a chopped windshield for his cruiser.

As drivetrain he put odd-fire V-6 engine out of his rockcrawler that is backed by a BOP-pattern TH400 out of a 1968 Oldsmobile. There is no transfer case on this flatfender, instead a stubby driveline routes power to the big bearing Ford 9-inch out of a pickup, complete with an unknown gear ratio. This is a very cool build that cost very little money. That was his goal and he achieved it. Check out the crazy Jeep Hot Rod!
