To start with the truck, we hand built the entire front end of the truck, we used a 1949 ford shoebox grill and built the rest around with the center showing the international logo. the headlights are a 2014 jeep wrangler so all lighting is modern. the hood was modified making the bottom straight by taking off the points it had then we added the body line down the center, the cowl vent is gone, we shaved the door handles, we also made the long bed a short bed, rebuilt the top bed rails to flow with the truck. we shortened the running boards added body lines to the bottoms of fenders stretched the rear fenders 7 inches to be the same front to back. then the custom splitter style roll pan was built with flush mount l.e.d. tail lights that are hidden till they light up. we modified the tailgate with rounded curved to flow better. the bed wood is a cherry wood from Brazil with custom hidden bolt strips. The bottom of the truck is all finished and built like the top.
Under the hoodWe custom built the inner fenders and firewall to blend the 383 into truck without overdoing it so you can still drive it without it getting hot. the 383 stroker is 400hp with six super 7 carbs and runs great! the trans is a 700r4 rearend is aws6 trans am shortened to fit the big wheels.
