Robert’s 1938 International Harvester sports a grille from a ‘46 that’s adorned with a pair of Packard headlights sitting on a custom frame on RideTech air suspension.
The duallys are mounted on a NASCAR rear-end and are ably driven by a blown 392 Hemi that breathes through an 871 blower and exhales through a pair of sizable stacks.
According to Robert, the truck pushes about 550-horsepower — not bad for a truck that does not weigh that much — power-to-weight ratio makes this thing a kick in the pants to drive.
This build started out as a rat rod, and it wasn’t built for serious drag racing — it’s all about style and having a good time cruising, and it does not disappoint.
The interior ain’t no farm truck. Stitched leather seats, proper headliner and carpet top and bottom the cab out nicely. A billet aluminum steering wheel wrapped in leather and Dos Equis beer tap handle shift knob make navigating this truck down the tarmac comfortable and fun.
