1948 International Harvester Other

Truck is sitting on an 1992 S-10 chassis that's been shortened behind can 7 1/2 in. Air ride on all 4 corners. All front end parts were replaced when this truck was out together almost 7 years ago. Motor has been bored .60 with all new pistons, rods, and crankshaft. Engine has been balanced. Double roller timing chain with roller tip rockers, and custom ground camshaft. Weiand tunnel ran intake with two 450cfm non-choke carburetors. Still features stock ignition. Rebuilt C6 transmission. Small compressor fills a 3 1/2 gallon tank. Gas tank is modeled after a tractor tank that we had replaced a few months ago. Brand new battery installed about a month ago. 15x7 and 15x10 wheels front and rear respectively. Fenders widened and bed narrowed. This truck has been excellent fun for me and my dad since we built it my senior year almost 7 years ago. It has been an absolute blast to drive, take to shows, and just overall enjoy. It is still quite the attention getter no matter where it goes. It is very much the true definition of a rat rod. It's uncomfortable over long distances, squeaks, rattles, and is devoid of any amenities apart from power steering and brakes. It completely lays flat when the bags are deflated to the point that it creaks. This truck was built to cruise, not race. It has held up very well and I would drive it anywhere as long there was a gas station close by. Call 864-873-7802 with any questions or feel free to email. Thanks for looking.
