When you combine a classic with a modern feel you get a creation unlike anything else!! This 1972 International will be riding on a very popular 2013 Ford Raptor chassis and take its V-8 engine, along with a few other things to make this International an InterRaptor!!! As you can see in the rendering the original name was going to be InteRAPTional but towards the end of the build changes were made and we dig its new and improved combination.
This build turned out faster, stronger and a true masterpiece! How can we not be proud of this build!
Now a little history of the International Harvester Travelall, it's a full size truck that was manufactured from 1953-1975. It had a similar layout to the Chevrolet Suburban. This was considered to be far cooler than a station wagon back in the day. It almost sounds familiar in today’s times though if it’s a station wagon we’ve built we would be more than happy to cruise it around!!
The wheels are OEM Raptor wheels, the chassis is of a 2013 Ford Raptor. Everything is pretty much all stock. We did however lengthen the International front door by 10 inches and the rear doors by 4 inches. Our guys in the fab shop made new skins for the doors as well and also made custom side mirror to fit the body better.
As you see it turned out to be one rad show truck!
