        Sweetness....... that would drive the diehard IH guys here at work nuts! I'd run it just as it is (well, with the lifter thing fixed of course) :P

          I like them. I saw one that was customized with a different grille, looked very sharp. Trying to remember where I saw it.

            Cool, not cool ugly, but cool. I agree with Brian that chrome bumpers would be a plus.

              I dig the old "cornfield Cadillac"(being nice...I usually refer to'em as 13-letter shitspreaders... ;D).

              Definitely needs bumpers.....I've noticed over the years that the old International pickup trucks didn't have a lot in the way of chrome(or flash in general)......the grille/filler panel was likely body color or white. Chroming it could be cool.....or not.

              I'd be too tempted to stuff one of the old inline turbo-diesels(from something like, say, a 1066?) in it.....sure, you could shoehorn a PowerStroke in it and call it good(in keeping with the IH family), but that truck just screams for an inline powerplant. There's a series of YouTube videos floating around about some nut that put a 3-53 Detroit 2-puker in an early-mid-60's Chevy 4x4 truck....manual trans, engine brake and all(think the poster goes by the name of HotelCambodia or some shit like that).

              I think the 'trashional(another nickname) would be way cooler!

              Are those polished Center Line wheels?

              I like them, but they just don't work for that truck.

                That truck could most definitley grow on you, chrome bumper, darker hue of blue,and off white fenders front and rear.

                  I'm with Brian on correcting the stance first.

                  Then I'd paint it a sweet old truck blue (something lighter and flatter than what it has now). I'd follow with a cream grill and cream steelies with chrome baby moons.

                    Throw a Cummins in it with a stick from a newer Ram, adjust stance, clean up paint/body, drive it like I stole it. Definitely COOL as all hell, but not ugly.
                    Hauling ass & sucking gas are the best uses for a truck.

                      By golly I think he's got it! That would make it just right.

                          I like that idea, puttin a tractor engine in a truck, that'd be pretty neat.

                            Man we all just need to buy the truck,
                            Fatman Fab in Charlotte NC has a IFS system for these trucks.
