Discovered in an Oklahoma barn by Galpin Auto Sports (GAS), this is the 1956 F-100 shop truck of famed pinstriper and creator of the monster shirt, Ed “Big Daddy” Roth.  Reportedly powered by a Packard V8 when Roth owned it, it was used as a farm truck for the better part of 30 years before being found and restored.  That’s right, $4.00 to pinstripe any car!  Grand National Roadster Show, Pomona, CA.

If there is any one Rat Fink item anyone should ever own, its this one.  The 1960′s kustom car icon is brought into glorious 3 Dimensions thanks to a Japanese company called Dunk.  And yes, its made of vinyl!  The detail is staggering.  I feel like I’m getting punched in the face with tiny crevices and bumps each time I look at this thing. My Rat Fink, what big teeth you have! What a big nose you have! What amazing translucent plastic eyes you have! All the better to look awesome on my shelf with.  I think Big Daddy Roth would be proud.
