Vehicle Description

This 1957 International Resto-Mod Metro Van started as a daily service vehicle at the Air Force base in Ely, NV, and then went to the base in Cutbank, MT. This custom Resto-Mod was purchased by the current owner in November 2019 in Cutbank and was built at the owner's retail hot-rod shop. This van is finished in a beautiful oil-rubbed patina and is finished with all its original sheet metal. The body has custom-fabricated rear wheel tubs, frenched 1950s Pontiac rear LED taillights, all new glass and windshield with new seals. The underbody is coated with truck bed liner, and all doors open and close well. The rebuilt 2005 GMC LS 4.8-liter V8 engine has a Fast Fuel intake and 92mm throttle body, a medium COMP cam, springs and lifters, flat-top pistons and a Holley front accessory drive, mated to a 4L65E overdrive automatic transmission. This van is equipped with a Corvette Type 2 power steering pump, electric cooling fans, large amp alternator, a custom aluminum radiator, power steering and power brakes. Additionally, this van is equipped with a custom-built driveshaft and 12-bolt rear end on a 1966 C10 chassis modified for air and lay-frame design with new engine and transmission mounts, and full air-ride setup with Slam Specialties bags and management system. Features include dual Viair 480 compressors, a custom-built aluminum large-volume fuel cell, custom-bent brake and fuel delivery lines and CPP front power disc brakes with rear drums, a custom-built 3-inch Flowmaster kit with cross pipe, Hooker high-flow exhaust manifolds and Flowmaster mufflers. The interior is mostly stock appearance with custom interior pinstriping, front buckets with two rear passenger bench seats, and features a custom-fabricated engine doghouse and custom-fabricated interior metalwork, including the dash. With new door seals and weatherstripping, the interior also features all new Omega white-face gauges, Bluetooth and a headliner featuring shellacked vintage concert posters. This Metro Van rides on 22-inch steel powder-coated wheels with custom U.S.-made 6-lug spider caps and new tires.
