Hello all. New to the forums here. Thanks for having me. I've negotiated the acquisition of a 1953-1955 International R-112 truck from my great grandmother's farm. Now I just need to get a day where both my uncle and I can get together for me to bring it home. This truck has sat for the past 35 years so it is going to be quite a project and a restoration of this magnitude is all new to me. I'm not quite sure yet if I want to keep it as original as possible or if I want to Rod it. It is hard to find detailed info and specs on these trucks. In its day, I believe this would have been considered a smaller farm truck so I think it should be built pretty heavy. The R-112 is a heavier built version of the R-110. Heavier suspension with 1200 lbs more GVWR, 4 speed, etc. 220 ci 6 cyliner with ~100 hp. Let's assume this truck was roadworthy and currently driven (it is not). What components would need to be replaced to put a built 600 hp motor in it? With this truck possibly being built on the heavier side, can I get away with not replacing some things that other similar scenarios would need to do, for example the rear end, suspension, etc.? Any other comments or thoughts?
