WHO: Warwick Andrews

WHAT: 1947 Fargo 

What The Owner Had to Say About Their Ride:

Chain Smoker is a 1947 Fargo reclaimed from a Canadian field with original matching patina on every panel and no body filler. Owner Warwick Andrews sculpted its chain body panels using design cues from Art Deco era cars mixed with modern day Rat Rods. 12v 6BT Cummins diesel crate engine built with only high performance aftermarket parts and machine work. Compound turbo setup, 74mm turbo feeding nasty 96mm. NV4500 manual transmission with stage 6 clutch. Boxed frame with inner tube frame and full interior cage. 14” rear c-notch, four link rear with Watts link. Chain widebody built using 300ft+ of chain from a 1940’s decommissioned elevator (600ft overall). During a burnout, smoke plumes through the rear widebody chains while simultaneously rolling out the exhaust stack into its surrounding chains, which is when the name Chain Smoker truly comes into play.
