: 1946 International Pick Street Rod project....

06-07-2015, 06:41 PM
So i was at work friday and had mentioned i was looking for a old pick up to do a street rod rat rod deal. One of the guys told me he saw 2 truck cabs sitting out by this house with a for sale sign on them. So the wife and i decide to take a ride out to see if we can find them. Well we did find them ... i was thinking whats this guy gonna want for these things, everyone seems to think they have gold. The guy who had them was pretty cool and had pretty some sweet projects that he was working on. Well i ended up getting both cabs and other related parts and a sbc 350 and th350 trans for what i thought was a fair price. Actually what i paid for all of it was what i could flip the motor and trans for ...
The only thing i did'nt get was the frame, it was a s10 frame with no title so i am up in the air as far what direction i am going to go with that. Maybe a donor s10 to use the floor pans and seats and pedals and other related shit. Or just go with a street rod frame.... Here's what we ended up with ....

I looked up the name on the doors and it appears that truck was part of The Milwaukee Electric Railway and Light Co... that one is going into storage. i can't tell what name is on the doors of the green one..someone put stickers over what was faded out....hav'nt tried to peel off the stickers yet...

A lot of guys are putting those on s10 chassis. Some of them use everything possible off the s10. Should be a fun project whatever way you go.

06-09-2015, 07:21 AM
the s10 is what i am leaning towards too... i am on the hunt for a junker with good frame and title ....

07-12-2015, 10:59 AM
well i found a wrecked s10 to use for my donor frame. Sold the yellow cab and related parts, pretty much made my money back on what i paid for the 2 cabs. Ordered some new pieces for the sbc.. and some front suspension parts...waiting for those to come in. Hopefully have the cab on the frame in a few weeks ... Hoping to use the floor from the s10 ...should work ....

Good Luck Larry. Cant wait to see this projects

The 350 that came with the truck cab turned out to be in decent shape, possibly a recent rebuild....Decoding the numbers show it out a 77 Camaro ...had good crosshatch on the cyclinders, bearings looked good, timing chain was new...so i pretty much just ordered up new valve covers,timimhcover and oil pan. Found a old school intake on carb on craigs list, rebuilt the carb and cleaned the intake. Also the new control arms for the frame showed up.

Well i have half the frame cleaned and painted...The Summit chassis spray bomb stuff worked pretty well... just have to put it on thick .... new front control arms and 2" drop springs are in on... the wife helped put the springs in ...forgot how much a pain in the ass they are .... dropped the engine and trans in it today ...did'nt get a trans x-member with the frame ...so i had some scrap tubing and 1/8 plates ...so i spent the morning fabbing that up... finish it up tomorrow and then drop the cab on and then go from there...

Tracked down a kb6 grill that will match the hood ... so now i will just have to mock everything up and get some brackets welded to the frame ...then find a radiator that will fit into the grill shell....

Cool build. I just got an International rat rod. It's on an s10 frame. It's garbage I got it just for the engine wheels and tires. Shame the cab is as trashed as it is could have been a cool truck.

Yep, it's an Olds. It's going in my 49 Hudson. Looks like a lot of somethings chewed on the bottom of that cab. lmao

After collecting a bunch of parts over the winter ...getting back started on the 46.... mocking up the grill shell and the headlights & hood ....
Did'nt realize what the going price of a IHC grill was .... Scored this one for $100 .... its beat up ,but perfect for what i am doing ....

A few recent pics...almost finished with the floor ...alot of burned wire to get this done .... hopefully be finished with it this week . Have the bedsides on ...The spun aluminum gas tank should be coming into today and that will be mounted in the bed... Then it will be time to tackle the steering,brakes,gas pedal.... Fun stuff ....

Oh yeah ... i will be shortening up the nose by at least a foot ... hope to order the radiator by end of the week and move the grill shell back once i get the radiator in ... Should fix the long nose look.... Not sure how i will section the hood pieces but i'm sure i'll figure it out....

07-30-2016, 07:13 PM
Nice work. I didn't know those grills were worth anything I might need to put mine inside out of the weather. lol. What size fronts are you looking for? I think I might have some 14x7's out in the back shop, I'd have to measure them.

08-01-2016, 07:54 AM
I have seen the same grill on ebay starting at 400-500 bucks ... althou they looked to be in better shape .... this one was a deal plus i could go drive and pick it up ... also i'm going to chop it up a bit so i could'nt see doing that to a real nice one. I am looking for some type of front skinny .... i may just get a set of those skinny 4" chevy rally wheels ...

I had one when I was living on my cousins farm years ago . crank out windshield was our only air conditioning . we beat the shit out of it . pretty much smoked pot and destroyed it . wish I didn't and still had it :(

08-14-2016, 10:51 AM
Heres some updated pics...floors done except for some bottom side touch up welding .... seam sealer & some sort of sound deadner.... i have the rest of the framing done in the truck bed ....just have to weld in some 1 x 1/8" strips to hold in the wood bed. I am thinking of going with cedar planks for a picnic table look. The radiator and grill shell are in ... ended up shortening the nose by 6" ... i still have to section the hood sections to fit. Next things on the list are Windshield and crank out mechanism... i have a box of misc parts and all of that seems to be there. I have the gas pedal,brakes, steering column to do also. Looking at Lokar stuff for the throttle pedal and a Speeedway 24" column . Saw a brake pedal assembly online for a street rod that should work....

Yesterday i decided to drop the dist in to make sure i had enough clearance for it. Well its pretty close to the firewall but good enough. My wife and i just moved the cab around to where we thought it looked good ... Worked out pretty good... Today i dug thru the boxes of stuff i had gotten with the cabs, put the windshield crank in and also found the emblems that were missing on the dash. I was pretty pumped to find these... They are brass and cleaned up pretty nice, i will most likely paint them black and then hit them with a 3m pad to bring the lettering back to the brass ....

I would have to trim the front of that frame and pull that nose in some . thing looks like jimmy durante on a skate board

11-23-2016, 06:20 PM
I have since sectioned the front frame, and moved that grill shell back as far as it will go... It's pretty much set against the radiator supports.... I am also going to redo the grill ... i want to put a sprint car nerf bar on the front... i am changing stuff every time i work on it....

Finished up fixing the passenger door & door sill today.... more tedious welding...

11-23-2016, 07:06 PM
I like it. Its sharp as hell

11-23-2016, 07:13 PM
looking good

11-24-2016, 09:11 AM
Heres what the door sill and the bottom of the door ended up looking like.... The passenger side of the cab door sill was completely gone as was the bottom of the door... Figured this is better than what it was... I used some j panel patch panels to fix it... I hav'nt decided if i am going to grind it down and smooth it out with fiber glass... For now i am going to leave it...

Larry I read through the thread again but I'm either missing it or you didn't post it. What brand steering column is that you used?

01-09-2017, 03:45 PM
Its a Speedway Nostalgia Column... the one that is in there now is a 24" but i am going to put a 28" in it to move the steering wheel away the dash a bit.

I did actually work on the truck today...dropped the rear end out and removed the springs to paint the rear frame section and start on the boards for the truck bed. All the bolts on the springs were frozen in the bushings...big pain in the ass to cut everything out. Gonna order up new bushings, spring shackles,u bolts tomorrow ....
I will clean up and paint the s10 rear end ,but will eventually put a 9" in it... or at least thats the plan ...

01-29-2017, 03:06 PM
Back at it again....finished up cleaning and painting the rear frame ...starting on the pick bed wood.... Only 40 more holes to drill...fun stuff.... lol

Finshed moving the nose back as far as it will go.... This is the way its going to be unless i change noses.... Will most likely stay with it since its a actual IHC front end. Mounted the over flow bottle... all hoses and trans lines are connected. Battery cables are done...battery box is in... pretty soon i'll see if my $125 sbc is any good...hoping to make some noise soon...

05-22-2017, 07:46 AM

06-03-2017, 11:41 AM
No windshield glass.... i am leaning towards making it out of lexan... i have the door glass & rear window...all cracked but could be used for patterns...

07-23-2017, 11:39 AM

Went to a car show on sunday a couple towns east of us in Maple Park... ran into some new truck blues on the way home... the internal shift linkage on the th350 came loose and i only had 2nd gear for the ride home. Dropped the pan and got that all tightened up this morning... I might as well just race this thing if i am going to have to wrench on it after every outing...lol

09-16-2017, 01:57 PM
Still having some transmission problems... no park... guess it's time to drop it out and have it freshened up... shift kit ... 10" converter...

09-22-2017, 11:46 AM
Dug my car trailer out of moth balls & test fit the truck... a s10 chassis must be smaller than a foxbody...fits just fine... hopefully get it to the track to see how slow it is...

Gonna drop the trans out of it today .... time for a fresh trans and converter....

03-01-2018, 07:37 PM
I am currently putting together a more period correct SBC... a 58-62 vintage 283 ... hope to have that going by May...

04-06-2018, 02:50 PM
Pretty much finished up the 283 today.... picked up the trans on monday ... have a new 10" converter .... i just have to pull the 350 out ..finish up some welding and painting of the trans tunnel....and drop the whole mess in....

Looking good. Does the 283 have a cam in it, or is it stock? Will your chassis accomodate a low mount alternator like they us on the 62-67 Novas? It mounts low on the driverside and works with a SWP. The prackets look period correct, and you can run an internally regulated alternator with them.

04-06-2018, 06:59 PM
The 283 has a old school Crane 260 cam in it right now... i also have a Duntov 30/30 cam on the shelf, may go into it somewhere down the road... theres no room on the driver side ... the steering box is in the way... old school cylinder heads don't have any accessory holes in them... the alt i found seem fairly sturdy....

05-28-2018, 12:34 PM
First car show this year at the fair grounds in Sandwich Illinois....
