    Hi everyone,
    I have been reading the boards here for quite a while and really enjoy it. I like all the technical info floating around here, its been great for learning. I have definitely been inspired to build traditional rod soon- see if i can slide it past the wife!
    Thanks for a great site.
    I have a custom truck, but i don't think it fits the mould here but i will post a picture anyway and hope for the best!
    It a 1977 International Loadstar

    Thanks guys,
    The truck is not everyones cup of tea, but then again it was never built to be that.

    The frame is custom front to rear- 3x6-1/4 wall sealed as the air tank. Rear diff is a Ford 10.25, and front spindles from a 91 E350 bus on custom solid axle. It has 4 transport truck bags.
    The drivetrain last year was a Ford IDI diesel with a 02 powerstroke turbo, turned up injection pump, dodge intercooler, 5" exhaust, a low stall billet converter and a towing shift kit.
    This year i have swapped it to a 12V Cummins that will only run a slightly turned up injection pump and stock turbo. Transmission has a low stall billet converter and towing shift kit along with a few other internal upgrades. I may upgrade clutches as well when it is apart, but will see when the time comes.

  7. Welcome! I Love the loadstar! I have seen it in other posts on the web and love the concept. I personally own around a dozen Internationals of all different categories. Im current building a 1946ish IH traditional Rod pick-up.

    This site is a wealth of knowlege to all who take it in.
