1922 Ford Hot Rod is a Borderline Death Trap

This thing isn't built for power but for pure cruising.
It’s powered by a flathead V8 and has absolutely no safety features. Yet it rides decently well and sounds superb. Thing is, if you’re taller than 6 feet, then it’s nearly impossible to fit inside the thing. Big Muscle host Mike Musto had to improvise a way to both drive and sit in the car at the same time without the gear shifter getting in the way of his crown jewels, if you will. Now, don’t mistake this 1922 Ford for a rat rod, although it may look like one at first glance.
This Roadster was made specifically for cruising and not racing. What’s also interesting is that it’s a family heirloom for owner Anji Ramsey. Her grandfather bought it back in the day and even did a lot of the chrome work. And after 65 years, the car is officially a fine wine: it just keeps getting better with age.
