International harvester Rusty

About my car

I always wanted to build a rat rod and I saw this old dump truck in my hometown. Bought it for $500 and the dream became reality. It's a 1947 International Harvester 1 1/2 ton dump truck. It now has a 406 SBC 700R4 transmission dana70HD rearend with 3:73 gears. The grill and headlights are from a 1934 Chevy. The visor is from a 54 Oldsmobile cut down to fit the narrow cab. It still has the original front axel and spindles updated with 3/4 ton GM disc brakes. It's tons of fun and definitely a head turner.

  • This car was made in 1947 and I've driven it since 2013
