Meta-rat Ford V8


Well, there's no forced patina here...
What we find is a solid, honest, vintage work van, just ready for a spot of twenty-first century rejuvenation. So what route would you take? Period V8 and a fresh coat of paint? Chopped, channelled and sectioned with flames and a Rocket 88? Stanced over Boyd Coddington billets with a shouty LS1?
Not me. I'd keep the bodywork exactly as it is, and try to squeeze the chassis and running gear from a turbo-diesel Transit under there. But that's just me.
