    Let me know what you Guys Think!

    Looks good from here. Those are usually pretty solid trucks that are almost always overlooked.

    Looks good. Nice to see something different every now and then.
     
  4. What year is your International? Looks like a pretty solid truck, don't see many of them rodded and I really don't know why because they're a good looking truck. Given that it has a straight ladder frame, it lends itself to whatever running gear and suspension you want. If the body is as solid as it looks, should be no more difficult to build that a comparable vintage Ford or Chevy. Keep us updated on the build.

    those trucks kick ass. my uncle has one and its amazing just how big they are and how stable. The motor actually sits lower than in regular trucks giving it a very low point of gravity making it almost impossible to roll in over. My uncle's is a four door with dual tanks. The thing is a beast

    I always liked the looks of the International's, the 2 I owned turned into rust buckets. Glad to see a survivor!

    NO not a 350 those are so bland go with something else. Everyone has a 350 be different hell I even think some of the late model Internationals had a V8 in them. but the trucks look great thought.

    I got a 1935 with a 454, what a mistake that was. It is a real tire burner but the stock front end, even with new parts, starts the shimmy thing at about 45 MPH.
    I'm doing 1949 KB1 with a 4.3 V6 should be a little better on the road. the 35 and the 49 are in my Pict. gallery, the 35 was done by my brother in law and looks stock from the outside but inside it a cobbled mess that need to be redone. I'm thinking about dumping the 454 and putting dependable 6 in its place. I like getting there and back with out the use of triple A.
    Internationals are overlooked now but wont be when all the Chev. ford metal is gone, then yours will be top of the line. I love that style you have better than what I have.

    In this case I don't kick the 350. Those IH V8 engines are heavy as hell, have no performance parts available and a lot of thier pieces including radiator hoses are "dealer items only". It's asking a guy a lot to tell him he needs to install an engine that he has to pay full list price for every piece and a lot of the pieces are special order only.
