Lazy Jnr Rat Rod Build
Lazy junior is just starting to build his first Ratrod build in Australia.
The base vehicle is a Triumph standard 10 pick up. or as the Australians call them “utes”
Unfortunately the chassis of the Standard 10 seems to be made of cardboard, well as strong as. Looking at different options to push on the build, and with the OZ rules on modified vehicles, we decided that it would be easier to put the Triumph body on a different chassis.A trip to the local breakers sourced a Mazda 2200 ute for a mere 800 bucks (£400). With a bit of careful measuring, the Triumph body will fit over the Mazda chassis if it is shortened and the Triumph body is widened by about 100mm. How hard can that be.
The power plant will be a v8, good choice, a Holden 4.2 with a 3 speed autobox. Purchased through Gumtree for 500 bucks (£250)
Yep you guessed it, Lazy is in Australia with his son Mark helping to build his first Ratrod, will be interesting how much we can complete in 4 weeks.
With a bit of luck and all fingers crossed I will try to upload some photos tomorrow.
See you soon ……..Lazy
Found some pictures of the start of the build………..see below;

Lazy’s Rat Rod Build
Check out my posts in this forum with step by step approach with picture illustrations – Lazy’s Rat Rod Build Taxi tear down to Rat Rod or learn how to get quick rust in the Technical section. I will share any problems and difficulties I come across during the build with the solutions I have found perhaps you could do the same. I set myself a challenge of building a well engineered Rat Rod for under £1000 to achieve this I will be using bit and bobs laying around mine and friends garages – may have to beg borrow and swap to achieve this Cheers Lazy ………………
