Default 34 Hot Rod Pickup

Jeff and the fellows from ihon have been very very good to me so I thought I would do a build thread here. So here goes, this is a chopped and channeled 34 International c1 pickup. For the motor I will be using a 304 IH block over bored to fit 392 standard bore pistons. The reason for the power plant selection is the shorter stroke of the 304 will spool up faster and besides I wanted something cool for the truck. I will start this off with a few pictures of the truck as I got started, note my plan is to have this ready for the summer IH shows.

In the first set of pictures you see the truck before the chop and channel. You will also see I used a transverse leaf spring and dropped axle to give the truck a real hot rod look.

The frame on my truck is boxed, we also ran conduits thru both sides for wiring. For rear suspension I used coil over shocks and four linked the axle. I also used hairpins on the front axle for the hotrod look.

In these pictures you see what we have done with the bed, it is shortened to four feet. Also changed the wheel wells, to fit the pie pan slicks that I will be using.

Ok here's a look at the cab after the chop and channel. Also the wooden floor was replaced with a steel floor, the channel sets the cab completely over the frame. Also you see the grill shell is chopped down to match the cab.

The motor in the frame is for mock up, I have the hot rod motor torn down to a long block and will be building it up as soon as I can. Here's a peek at the engine parts that will be used on this truck

Here are a few pictures of the headers, I had flanges made up then used a kit for making your own headers for a bb Chevy. I'll let you guys judge the look, they are just plane cool. Also you see the cool motor mounts that will be used on the hot rod. In these pictures you can also see the wheels and tires for the truck. Sorry about the sun blasting through the window.

Sense the truck will not have a hood or sides around the motor bling is very important, the parts list includes dui distributor, gear drive starter, roller rockers, rpt manifold, rpt motor and transmission mounts, of corse lots of steel bradded lines and a wilwood master cylinder.

Robert, it has been over a month with no update for those of us living vicariously through your build. Or have you been too busy with other projects? Please update us so at least I can feel guilty (again) for not working on mine.

Thanks, ken

Ken I sent the cab out to have the wood rebuilt in the doors and I have been pushing forward on a couple other projects. I hope to be complete with them soon so I can jump back on the truck. Here's a look at the 66 800 with a fold down windshield I am building for someone else.

Then I need to rewire the doors in this one, my wife's ls1 powered Scout. I have power windows from ihin and the wire are just wadded up when the doors close. I bought contact switchs the will power the windows and doors locks up without the wires in the jamb.

And after that I need to swap out the engine and transmission in this one. Back story it was sold as a 1976 diesel tera repoed in 77 and sat in a warehouse until the dealer brought it to me. I have already replaced the interior, but he hates the nonturbo diesel so it is getting a rebuilt 345 and 727 as soon as I get there. I have the motor and everything ready just need shop time.
