1953 International 1/2 Ton Pickup in Houston, Texas

Vehicle Description

This half-ton pickup is fully custom with all handmade body lines, shaved door handles and sideways-tilting hood, and the front end is fabricated by hand and welded to the cab like a true custom. The long bed was converted to a short bed by removing 9 inches from the front and 14 inches off the back, while 7 inches were added to the bottom of the fenders. Further modifications include a 1949 Ford grille with a rechromed hubcap for the center. Additional body modifications include flush-mounted taillights, which double as parking lights and turn signals, and a Brazilian cherry wood bed. The engine compartment has a new 383ci V8 stroker engine with 430hp mated to a 700R4 automatic transmission. It is also equipped with Wilwood disc brakes and a narrowed WS6 Trans Am rear end. It rides on Chris Coddington Hot Rods by Boyd wheels with Nitto tires. The hand-fabricated truck is finished top to bottom in custom MI paint by Matrix over an all-Italian leather interior. Awards include World of Wheels Chicago 2016, Best Display, Best Truck and First Place; Top 20 Syracuse Nationals 2016, Nomination for Designer Dozen; Street Rodder Top 10 and Street Rodder Top 100 in the Nation. Approximately 200 miles since restoration.
