    Here's my grandpa's 1974 International Harvester I thought was lost when he passed away years ago. I got a phone call from a relative a few weeks back and was asked if I still wanted it. Of course I jumped at the opportunity and brought it up to the house. Going to be a heck of a project with a ton of structures work!

    Welcome to the forums! :rockon:

    The amount of knowledgeable, and friendly people on here should be a big help on your build.
    Will look forward to following along on your build. :beer:
    I would love to have one of my Grandpa's old vehicles. He always managed to drive things with a lot of character.

    that thing will look pretty nice with just a good wash to get the mother nature off of it

    Just a word of advice, get it running and driving and then work on stuff (like rust) a small project at a time. I blew mine apart a long time ago, lost steam a bunch of times, gone through a move, etc., and I wish I had just tuned her up, fixed the brakes, and put a bed on it.
