Wheelstanding truck with a backward engine pops an amazing wheelie

Wheelstanding TruckWheelstanding truck with a backward engine pulls out one of the most amazing wheelies that we’ve ever seen.

Well, if you’re not a fan of the YouTube show “Roadkill”, then chances are you’re not quite familiar with “Stubby Bob”. This actually is a 1950 Ford F6 2-ton dump-truck chassis cab. It was one of the project vehicles on the show and it debuted on Episode 44. For those of you who haven’t seen that episode, you need to know a few things in advance.

Mike Finnegan and David Freiburger took a 1950 Ford F6 truck that doesn’t have a bad. In other words, the Ford F6 features only a cab with a chassis. Furthermore, they shortened it and made it a bobber rat rod. Unfortunately, they weren’t able to run it during that episode and we haven’t seen it since. But, that doesn’t mean it was just sitting there in the meantime. The truth is far from it.

After they pulled the Flathead V8 that originally resided there, they added a few things. One of them was a Chevrolet Big Block V8. Then there is a 4L80E four-speed automatic transmission and a Holley Supercharger. Of course, they did some custom fabrication and got the Wheelstanding truck.

One of the most curious details on the wheelstanding truck is the engine. After close inspection, you’ll see that it is actually backwards and it drives the rear wheels. Inside the cab, on the other hand, is a V-drive probably taken from a performance drag boat. This thing also sends power to the back of the engine that goes down to the rear end.

When it comes to the multi-colored thing on top of the supercharger, we’re guessing it’s a scoop made from parts of the NASCarlo.

Indeed, the wheelstanding truck is in a class of its own. Check it out!
