    Metro

    you can likely get a few grand for it ... looks okay in some parts ... and rough in others where are you located? throw it up on craigslist or ebay or if you are really ready to get rid of it ... maybe these guys want it (fyi ... no affiliation) www.vintagestepvans.com

    yes ... knee action shocks and full drums are not sufficient for today's world yes ... modernize the go/turn/stop parts ... just do your best to keep the sheetmetal! looking forward to seeing the results geoff

    do whatever you want ... the rig was designed to be customized ... BUT ... just know that you have something that is still as visually iconic today as it was 70 years ago. be careful not to jump on a body-style trend that you may regret. put a huge V8 in it if you want ... whatever ... but try...

    it is totally rare no matter what ... it is in good shape and anything before a KB series (47?) is rare ... here is the book where the images are from: http://www.amazon.com/International-Trucks-Crestline-Frederick-Crismon/dp/0760300690/ref=mt_hardcover?_encoding=UTF8&me=

    My new Inter. Harverster Metro, need teardrop bezels..

    these rigs were designed to go 30 miles an hour for 30 hours a week ... that's about it ... many folks are turning them into food carts or cupcake trucks or whatever ... that is (afterall) mostly what they were 70 years ago i am going to turn mine into a camper i have a 5 cylinder mercedes...

    My new Inter. Harverster Metro, need teardrop bezels..

    i'd like to take back my most recent statement about being sure you have a D series ... there is an image on p167 of a '41 K-3-M ... that has your body style with skirts and an image on p175 of a '42 K-3-M without skirts this even goes to p197 with a '46 K-3-M with a similar body style to yours...

    grill is likely aluminum ... or stainless ... you do have a D series ... for sure ... the flare around the wheel well is different than mine (K series) ... D series came with skirts on the rear wheels ... K did not (here is what mine looks like https://goo.gl/photos/75wH9PvZopZcoBup8) and you...

    How much does my Metro curb weigh?

    Thanks everyone. As most know, I'm planning on putting a Mercedes OM617A (5-cyl turbo diesel) in my Metro... I am trying to decide on transmissions. Right now, the original 4 speed automatic is working great in the donor Mercedes. Curb weight of the MB is ~3500 pounds. SOOO ... I think I...
