    Anyone know any good sources to find a front bumper for a 1954 International R-110 pickup? Or, another makes bumper that would look good and work ok? Thanks!

    The only one I have ever seen are heavy ones built out of box and plate steel, so they are not very pretty. I wonder how well the bumper off of a 53-56 ford F100 would work since the trucks are in many ways similar in there general styling. It might need to be sliced down or lengthened, but I am sure you would have either the ability yourself to do it or you would be able to have someone do it for you. And even looking at those Ford bumpers, it looks like a person could very easily replicate and even improve upon the design through the use of a piece of 4"x2" channel steel, with the ends pie cut to flow with the body, and I think capping off the ends would make it look worlds better than the Ford ones. If you had any interest I could fab one up for you (I am from Hinckley, so only an hour away) and I even have a few of these trucks around that I could build it on, so I would not have to mess with your truck. PM me if you would have any interest in that, but either way good luck to you.

    I could be wrong but I think the L-R series have the same bumper much better looking in my opinion than my S-100, they tuck in closer and follow the contour well. I have tried to find something for mine but the width is my biggest problem. When looking you might try looking for the ton trucks it's the same size and because they are farther in the air aren't bent as often. Good luck.
     

  5. Two sources you might also try are Super Scout Specialties and the Scout Connection...dunno what shipping would do to you, though. You would want to call them rather than just peruse their websites...if they don't have something they can generally steer you to the right source.

    You might also join the Binder Bulletin and/or OldIHC.org to see if you can find something.

    All great ideas, thanks!

    Red, I am attaching 2 pics, the first is my truck, the 2nd is a fully restored r-110. Let me know what you think.


    Rhinothealbino, I will definitely look into that, I am going to look into a few ideas, but plan on hearing from me soon.

    Thanks!

    Got these down from storage. The front is 75" end to end. They have been straightened, holes welded & ready to chrome, powdercoat or paint.

    Binderbulletin.org is fairly well done-for. The IH authority as far as websites are concerned is now www.binderplanet.com. That's where all the old info from the binder bulletin got to as well. I can about guarantee you that if you contact Brendan Barnes on eBay (user name "furfishgame"), he'll have some. He's a good guy, located in PA.
