When people think about "Restorable 4x4 truck", what's the first things that comes to mind? For me it's gotta be a Dodge Powerwagon. But what's even MORE COOL and MORE RARE than a Dodge Powerwagon?
Why its a 1956 INTERNATIONAL HARVESTER 4x4
- of course!
The IH, as the brand is best know, was deleivered to the E-tek compoound in great style. On a massive flatdeck rig, the truck, and a spare box where delivered.
Unfortunately, EVERY piece of glass had been broken - and much of the shattered material had landed inside the cab - which had to be cleaned up as job one. Lucky for me, I actually talked my son Colt into helping - if only briefly!
As any restorer knows, sometimes the initial cleanup can be one of the funnest parts of a build, sometimes becoming somewhat of an archealogical expedition:
A good omen? In removing the seat, I was almost certain every bolt would snap off in it's body mount - bit instead, EVERY bolt came out cleanly - with only a little WD40 to help them along.
