It’s been a while since we’ve seen a Cummins rat rod full of creativity, so this ’31 Chevy nicknamed “Wild Torquey” built by Tinman 2 Kustoms was a breath of fresh air. Sporting a gooseneck hitch, the Chevy had a compound-turbo 5.9L Cummins, produced an estimated 800 hp and 1,500 lb-ft of torque, and pegged the cool factor with its driveshaft intake and numerous other creative mods.

Diesel Hot Rods That Pack A Punch

Among this list are some of the craziest looking builds that may look worn or small, but pack immense amounts of horsepower and internal modifications. These boosted trucks are surely eye-catches not only at typical car shows, but also drag races. These classy rides may have old bodies, but the inside is ripe and ready to demolish any competitors that might try to go against them. With that being said, these trucks deserve the attention and the owners deserve the praise for working with such old trucks and persevering to create some of the most bad-ass trucks ever seen!
