This sick rat rod, The Welderup Diesel Rod maybe the coolest I’ve ever seen. Obviously, Rat Rodders know a way to bring classic cars and some pretty unique engines back from the grave. We’ve seen many awesome combinations before but, this particular rat rod is something else. The body is from a 1928 Dodge Brothers’ four door sedan, although it has been completely altered and welded in many places.

The inline 6-cylinder Cummins turbo diesel was taken from a 1998 Dodge Ram 2500 and cranks out amazing 1270 lb ft of torque, and nearly 700 rwhp!!! If you’re having any doubts whether this thing can carry such a heavy engine, no worries, Steve took care of everything. Steve dug up the rod’s front axle from a coal mine truck, doors from a recycled gold mine brass mesh, and dashboard from various old farm equipment.

With staggering 11.6 seconds at 118 mph (1/4 mile time) this is one of the most wicked rat rods in the world, and believe us when we say that the burnout in the video definitely won’t disappoint you!
