The Rat Rod tether truck was designed and built by Doug Parker, of Vermont, in 2016. The truck measures 7-3/4″-long, 2-5/8″-high, and 3″-wide at the rear tires. It is machined from aluminum and steel bar stock and weighs in at 16 ounces. It is powered by a Pico .08cc engine (converted from radio control) that is geared 2:1 at the rear axle. This attractive Rat Rod Truck would prove to be a most unusual competitor in the racing circuit.
