The world is full of crazy people. For some reason, these crazy people more often than not seem attracted to cars and they tend to do crazy things. From cars mounted on truck frames to street-legal airplanes, people will do some pretty crazy stuff all in the pursuit of being different. But sometimes, different can go too far.
This is not one of those times. Rather, this big-block powered 1976 Porsche dually is an incredibly epic machine that is sure to bring joy to rat rodders the world over. Jalopnik came across this creation, which was built by Iowa-based Diversified Performance Innovations (DPI).
Of course a Porsche dually would come from Iowa, the land of corn and…corn.
So yes, you need something to keep your mind off of the corny nature of the state. So why not take the body of a 1976 Porsche and go all kinds of nuts with it? Called the “Ratty Porsche,” the ‘76 911 sits on the frame of an a ’73-88 Chevy frame. More specifically, a crew cab dually, which we assume is where DPI also sourced the 454ci big-block Chevy.
While this car looks all old school, it actually features a bagged, 4-link suspension, and well, not much else. It’s quite bare-bones for a German performance rat rod, which we imagine is what the owner wanted. This car is crazy enough on its own without having to go all one-percenter on the interior, though we’re sure they’ll splurge on necessities like a floor, eventually. It’s a wild ride, that’s for sure. But can you think of something even wilder? Bonus points for creativity.
