Description:

Stand out in a sea of garden-variety trucks with this searing yellow 1956 International. Known for rugged do-it-all reliability, the International also has a unique look and thanks to updated Ford mechanicals underneath, it''s a turn-key pickup that definitely makes a statement. All ''50s pickups have kind of the same, appealing look with rounded corners and stepside beds that recall the good old days, but this International puts its own spin on things. You should probably get ready for all the "What is that?" questions you''re going to get, but there are plenty of design cues that make it easy to spot. The hood with its built-in vent at the leading edge was an International look for many years, and the body-colored grille blends seamlessly with the 1955 Chevy parking lights for a very clean, yet interesting, look. The front fenders were smoothed and molded into the surrounding bodywork, the bumpers were shaved, and pretty much everything was covered in bright yellow paint just in case you didn''t notice the other stuff. The custom-built bed was smoothed, the tailgate has cool ghost letters on its face, and a clean rear roll pan has staggered bullet taillights and a recessed license plate that looks both trick and suitably industrial for an old pickup. And the bed is simply beautiful with refinished pine boards offering a dramatic striped effect that really sets off the whole truck. Despite the Ford transplant underneath, the interior remains International in flavor, with a simply black bench seat, steel door panels, and a very cool instrument panel that follows the curve of the windshield. A mixture of original and aftermarket gauges keep an eye on the revised engine, but they all look appropriate in the body-colored dashboard, and a woodgrained Grant steering wheel adds a bit of civility. Upholstery is in very good condition, including the black floor coverings that are protected by carpeted mats, and it appears that factory door hardware was retained. An AM/FM/cassette stereo head unit fits just about where you''d expect it and this truck undoubtedly originally had a floor shifter, so the modern T-handle for the C6 automatic underneath looks right at home. To make this truck work so well, they simply dropped the body onto a 1979 Ford Bronco chassis that includes all the modern conveniences as well as a stout 351 cubic inch V8. In true hot-rodding fashion, there are parts from different sources working together to make it reliable and fun. The block was covered in what looks like Chevy Orange paint, but is actually International Harvester Red, and the yellow valve covers match the body. Power steering and power front disc brakes make it feel confident in traffic and the dual exhaust with glasspack-style mufflers and a crossover sounds racy. The C6 3-speed automatic feeds a heavy-duty rear end and the lowered ride height makes it look great without a ride penalty. Stock Ford wheels were painted to match and carry 235/70/15 white-letter radials to complete the look. This is just a fun old truck with a bunch of charisma and easy-to-service mechanicals. Why not join the "dare to be different" crowd and try an International instead? Call today! This vehicle is located in our Atlanta showroom.
