Phantom Bantom on eBay

By David Clarke

My obsession with rat rods is getting worse, and the very sinister “Phantom Bantom” isn’t helping at all. Created by Royal Customs, this 1938 Bantam packs the typical small block 350, but when this motor is placed in a car the size of a Mini and sits at a 45 degree angle, it looks massive. Check out the sweet way they bent the headers to look like bird wings. The kinked frame is the truly outstanding feature of this car, which is more than ready for the lead role in a Rob Zombie video. The eBay auction ends soon, so act quick!

I agree with Matt & K-Aub! I do not like the V look!

This is hardly a “rat-rod”. Its more like an eccentric replica of a fuel-altered. “Rat-rod” is an overused label that usually defines a car that has been modified in such a way that it emulates the sterotypical post-war “gow-job”.
