03-22-2005 03:49 PM Rethinking the 59 IH
Lately I have been rethinking what to do with the 59 International. I read about the 50 Suburban frame swap using a S10 frame http://www.commerce.usask.ca/staff/hipkin/burb/frameswap.html and I started thinking about that 4X4 S10 I have sitting by the grain bins. There is a difference in the wheel bases of about 4 inches. The S10 is about 118 inches and the IH is about 114 inches. I could just use a flatbed or 4 inches could be added to the cab to compensate for the difference. Of course I do have a couple of 2-door S10 Blazers that I have no immediate plans for with a wheel base of about 100 inches. If I used one of those I could have a shorter flatbed or shorten the box about 4 inches. See, I am still in the planning stages, what should I do?

Another of my little projects, a 1971 Ford Camper Special that I purchased from an insurance company. It needs a lot but it is from California so it has many rust-free parts.

Just looking to see if a chopped top would be worth the effort.

59 International Harvester shortbox half ton pickup. This is still in the planning stage. It has an IH 240 cubic inch inline six cylinder engine and a four speed transmission. I am toying with the idea of using a Chrysler Fifth Avenue subframe that will give it front disc brakes, power steering and an independent front suspension. I am debating on what engine and transmission will be the best. I have narrowed the rear end choice to a nine inch Ford probably with drum brakes or an 8.8 Ford with disc brakes.
