RAT ROD

RAT ROD
SKU: ANG0461 Categories: , ,

The RAT ROD novelty number plate features the name given to a style of hot rod or custom car that in most cases, imitates or exaggerates early hot rods of the 1940s, 1950s, and early 1960s. The style is not to be confused with the somewhat closely related “traditional” hot rod, which is an accurate re-creation or period-correct restoration of a hot rod from the same era.
Most rat rods appear “unfinished”, regardless of their status, as only the vehicle’s bare essentials are driven.

It’s a standard size 37cm x 13cm aluminium plate with embossed main characters. It is extremely high quality, durable and long lasting and we are proud to say that it is Australian manufactured by the same company that’s been producing and selling quality number plates for years. The RAT ROD sign can be hung inside or outside and each is pre-drilled so ready to hang.

  • LAST STOP HOTROD REPAIR

    The LAST STOP HOTROD REPAIR sign is a great addition to any games room or Man Cave/Shed etcThe origin of the term "hot rod" is unclear, but Hot rods are typically old, classic American cars with large modified engines. Roadsters were the cars of choice because they were light, were easy to modify, and could be bought for a low price. The term became commonplace in the 1930s or 1940s as the name of a car that had been "hopped up" by modifying the engine in various ways to achieve higher performance.After World War II there were many small military airports throughout the USA that were either abandoned or very rarely used that allowed hot rodders across the country to race on marked courses. Originally drag racing had tracks as long as one mile (1.6 km) or more, and included up to four lanes of racing at the same time. As hot rodding became more popular in the 1950s, magazines and associations catering to hot rodders were started. As some hot rodders also raced on the street, a need arose for an organization to promote safety.In the sixties, as automobiles offered by the major automakers began increasing performance, the lure of Hot Rods began to wane. It was no longer necessary to put a Cadillac engine in a Ford roadster to be fast. It was now possible to buy a muscle car that outperformed just about any hot rod, with more passenger room, and without having to expend the effort of building and tuning the car oneself.In the mid-1980s, as stock engine sizes fell, rodders discovered the all-aluminum 215 (Buick or Olds) could be stretched to as much as 305 cu in (5 l), using the Buick 300 crank, new cylinder sleeves, and an assortment of non-GM parts, including VW & Mopar lifters and Carter carb. It could also be fitted with high-compression cylinder heads from the Morgan +8. Using the 5 liter Rover block and crank, a maximum displacement of 317.8 cu in (5,208 cc) is theoretically possible.There is still a vibrant hot rod culture worldwide, especially in Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia and Sweden.Novelty Tin signs are great for adding a touch of fun or nostalgia and there are heaps of them available with everything from Classic Muscle cars to Hollywood legends.
