The Original Morbid Rod.

Here’s a blast from the past. A few days ago I stumbled across a few more pictures of the original Morbid Rod and thought I’d add them and bump this post back to the top to show everyone the car that started Morbid Rodz. This car was built over the course of many months during 2005 – 2006 in a small shop here in Paris, Texas. It started life as a 1930 – 31 Ford Model A sedan but was highly modified with a chop and channel job. The frame started life as a 36 pickup piece that was boxed and clipped with Corvette donor suspension front and rear and the finished sedan body was mated to it. The same Corvette donated it’s drive train to this beast and after hours and hours of work the car was finished and terrorizing the streets. The original Morbid Rod featured several unique touches that would later on be used on almost every rat rod that rolled out of the shop. Features such as chopped roof profiles, channeling the body over the frame, aluminum roof skins and braces, and wrenches modified for things like accelerator pedals and handles. This car also had a fully custom grill shell, a miniature coffin air breather, flame thrower exhaust, custom skull shaped tail lights, and chainsaw chain accents around the roof line to complete the horror theme. The car was a blast to ride in but eventually it was sold on Ebay to fund the next project and the shop known as Morbid Rodz was born!

Model A roadster powered by a 6 duece small block

Here’s another Model A roadster that’s coming together at Morbid Rodz. This one is a bit unique as it’s going to be powered by a small block Chevy engine topped with a vintage Weiand Drag Star 6 deuce intake. The carbs will be Ford/Holley 94’s and to complete the vintage look we’ve sourced a set of original Cal Customs finned valve covers. Everything has been mocked up and most of the car is now disassembled for final fit and finish work.

Flat black Model A roadster

Here’s a few pictures of a recently finished Model A roadster. It’s powered by a 327 small block topped by a B&M supercharger. She rides on a set of wire wheels with white wall tires which give the car a unique look! The car was recently sold on Ebay and should be going off to a new home soon!

Satin black Model A sedan highboy, now on Ebay!

Here’s a few more pictures of the Model A sedan highboy. She’s powered by a Ford 289 small block backed by a C4 transmission with an aluminum intake manifold, HEI conversion distributor, and aluminum valve covers. She’s finished out in Satin black and has had the top chopped three inches. There’s a new Walker radiator, grill shell, Flaming River tilt column, and a Super Bell dropped axle. Currently the car is re-listed on Ebay due to no contact from the winning bidder. You can check it out at
