This is what happens when you try to modify a 1949 Case tractor into a rat rod. This pickup truck/tractor hybrid is impressive and certainly a showstopper. So what’s going on here? Well, essentially one old truck was used to complete the front end section of the tractor itself. It might look like two, but only one old 1948 F1 pickup truck was used. It also might appear difficult, but this is actually a rather easy modification to do.

The cab of the truck is simply slipped over the operator section of the tractor. Of course, some metal-working and tweaking certainly come into play, but you already have the fender whole cut for the rear tire, you just need to make it larger. The hood section and front grill portion of the truck are outfitted and fabricated to complete the front of the tractor. One solid coat of orange paint brings it all together, and two tractor lights pop on the side to give you a four eyed, rat rod, freewheeling beast. Not bad if we do say so ourselves.
