It's actually been a while since we've checked out an episode of Overhaulin', but this build seems pretty cool. After shunning '20s and '30s iron for most of the show's run, Foose and the crew decided to build the type of car that made him famous in the first place — a hot rod. After hijacking the vehicle from its owner, they dropped the Model A tub body on a TCI chassis, dropped in a 312 Y-Block Ford mill (nice to see something other than a Chevy small block or a flathead in a rod, after all), and well, Rod and Custom will have the rest of the build next month.

DISCUSSION

The problem with this roadster is that it might end up being too pretty. I have to admit, there is something about primer paint and a back to basics that is really appealing. Examples of some great rat rods can be seen here:
