An F1-inspired 1930 Ford Model A Rat Rod? Is this rendered? Nope, it’s a reality. This is Ricky Boada’s F1-inspired 1930 Ford Model A Rat Rod with a Honda S2000 engine. Ricky Boada has seen the insane render art of the Aero Beck on his computer screen 7-years before the car was built. Ricky stated that the rendered art Beck Kustoms F132 always stayed with him, and it was a perfect blend of everything he loved. But as a car enthusiast, Ricky Boada was able to make Aeron Beck’s render a reality.
Combined with several 90s Formula 1 modifications, a JDM powertrain, and a 30s Ford Model A, this is a fantastic creation, built by Ricky Boada himself. He is proud of the idea of this wild Rat Rod. Also, his unique Street Rod has become popular to be seen on television and enough to go here and there on the internet.
However, it’s not powered by a Ford engine. This F1-inspired 1930 Ford Model A Rat Rod is powered by a Honda F20C engine with an S2000 transmission. The engine is from a Honda S2000 Japanese sports car and has a damn 9000 rpm redline. And also, this Rat Rod gets a rear-end-sub frame and rear brakes from the S2000.
When Ricky bought the car, it was hard to drive because there was so much work to be done on it. When it was unloaded from the trailer, he felt that it was necessary, but he didn’t much like to take it to another place beyond the block. So he began to rebuild it to his taste with his own recipe. He was able to redo the entire project because it included the brakes, clutch, and other parts.
His intention in bringing this to the road as a unique ride was to be able to drive it every day. He just wanted to ride here and there and have fun. Ricky craves metal clashing sounds and turbo noises of his 1930 Ford Model A Rat Rod, and he believes that those sounds add a unique character to his Rat Rod.
Its unique and eye-catching features are an F1-type massive rear wing with a one-line wide LED tail light and massive air intakes. He says that the fat tires which add a superior look are 31 inches tall and the ground clearance is very low. With the S2000 engine with Bee sound, all these factors make it a track car for the road.
It is also equipped with wheel sensors and ABS. Its rear is packed with a gas tank, radiator, and S2000 suspension underneath. The Honda V-TEC engine is packed in the front, and the bonnet has to be removed to access the engine. As in F1 cars, the steering wheel has to be removed to get on this Rat Rod. It’s like sitting on the floor. It’s not a comfortable ride but it is an amazing, enjoyable, and also a unique ride. But Shhh…! There are no seatbelts.
Miami is a hotbed of car culture. Ricky Boada appreciates owning such a car and sharing his passion with many people around him. If you are a frequent visitor to Miami, you may have seen him here and there. Miami is a place where you allow even super modified your car without being stopped or arrested by a cop as long as it is registered.
