Talking It has began! 54 International Harvester Bobber build.

Hello All.

Well after months n months of trying to get this thing started, Its finally coming together. Or should I say coming apart.

54 IH, Chopped, Dropped n Blown! Heres wat we have so far In the Mockup. Still Moving n measuring but You get the idea. It has Dual Rear Semi tires and were using Either the Old IH rear or a 14 bolt narrowed with low to mid 500ish gearing to get these tires a rollin.

Its gettin a 7-8 inch Chop and Were runnin trhe front axle out a little before the Grill. Mr Gussett has an nsane idea on the Suspension that will be bad!!

Engine will be a 355ci sbc with a Weiand 6-71 blower. Already got that settin in my garage. And were gonna fab up some crazy Zoomies with Motorcycle Baffles.

Well heres the pics. Give me oppinions. Tnx, RR

Lookin good. 7-8 inch chop? Wow that thing is gonna be low n sweet! I wished I coulda went a little lower with mine but I'm 6'4" and want to be comfy when I drive. Gotta love blowers.. Man that thing is gonna be sick! I'm just the opposite I can start a project easy enough but I usually end up selling em before I'm finished! Trying to break that nasty habit! Good luck with the build and I'll be watching....

That's gonna be a bad*** truck! Love the big ole dually rears!! That's exactly what I have in mind for my 51 F1. Keep the pics coming. I'm really looking forward to your build.
