    Our 48 Chev truck with a 54 grille.

    Would be cooler if it sat a bit lower but our roads down here are buggered since the earthquakes, so this is a practical height.

    Perfect height IMO lowered but still drivable. Nice looking truck.

    Very nice!

    I have a decent 66 Mercury box if you ever want to make it match the cab.

    What engine and tranny does it have?

    I think I want to clean it up, change the wheels, drop it a bit and sell it. The p.o. rebuilt everything underneath and the head was done. Driver side front fender had some dents removed and one can corner has about a 2" rust hole. The floors are rust free and only some minor dents on the back of the box. Engine is around a 216? Not sure the cid , 3 on the tree. The box is original to it, what does the 66 box look like? I've never seen another one, and it doesn't have the lines of a uni, what do you think it could be worth?

    It should be a 223 if it's a 6 cylinder, great engine IMHO.

    This is what the 66 box I have looks like (though this is not it)

    Some people like to change to this box for the lines to match up.

    without seeing it in person I cannot really give a good value, here in Alberta they range from $100 to $2000 based on options and condition, what would you want for it as is?

    Thats a rather severe chop, but i really like it. The way you leaned the windshield to use the roof as a visor is real kool.

    Thanks for the compliment and thread link. I'm a die hard Chevy guy, traded for the IH. After a little hot rodding I started to like it.

    great lookin truck
    nice clean lines
     
  18. Cool truck. I've always liked the Internationals of the 60s. To me, they look sectioned. How about a little information on this one? Engine and tranny, and most important, how did you lower it? Does it ride good? E

    Thanks for the words.

    I'll tell you what I know. It has the original 266- 2 barrel, was a 3 on the tree but somebody slipped in a 4 speed at some point. 83,000 original miles.

    I built it to use as a truck. Not finished with it yet so never took it down the road.

    I flipped the rear axle and c notched the frame, flipped the front axle also. Cherry bomb duals.

    I also lettered it last week here are some pics, thanks Jalopy Journal. And special thanks to Bill Appleby for parts and great info.

    What's wrong with building a truck as a truck?

    Nice Truck man!! I had a question.. Is the box a 63 or a 59? I could be wrong but it sure looks like a early Fridge box.. Bottom line super fine ride and what kind of power are you running?? :D

    They made too many of the 57 58 59 beds so they used them up on the early 60s trucks.they did make a bed that looks like the unibody bed wheel wells allso that I think looks way better than the 64 67 bed wheel wells.

    Jake

    A pic of my 61 unibody project think I have pimped it on every truck thread it fits in to now lmao.
