Vehicle Description

Outrageous. Crazy. Ridiculous. Cool. Expect to hear these exclamations and more when you drive up in this Ratical [sic] ride. “Ratical” because it’s fresh off the 2018 SEMA show floor, where the truck captured the coveted award of International Ratical Rod Build-off 1st Place World Champion. Dodge motorhome chassis are on the most wanted list due to the 440 big block that is often part of the package. For this project, the entire frame, the engine, and transmission see duty. And why not? The 440 is legendary as a street engine, including trucks and RV’s. This one is fortified with an RV cam for even more low end. 727 Torqueflite automatics are hard to beat for durability and torque capacity. It too received the hot rodder’s touch with a shift kit (firmer, quicker shifts) and a Boss Hog convertor. The diffs are from Dodge too. Suspension is everything for stance and driveability, and plenty of engineering savvy went into it. Shockwave’s integral-air-spring-and-shocks do duty in front, teaming with a Universal 4-link rear suspension. Vertical motion is facilitated through Ridetech and their Pro Series Air-ride system. From there, the Build Team at Canada’s Zombie Body Shop frankenwelded a one-of-a-kind body from Ford F5 Cabover, F4, and F47 and F100 pickup components. Much more than a mere ratrod build, Zombie shows off its artistic side with orange and black paint highlighting hand-painted murals. You’ll also find oak running boards with Solderweld and gold leaf accents. Moore and Giles leather with a natural, broken-in character envelopes the interior. Bead rolled trim with brass inlay demonstrates more design thoughtfulness. Leading edge tech abounds with a full complement of connectivity features and in such details as Grote LED lights inside and out.
