1969 International Loadstar
It’s a 1969 International Loadstar cabover truck with a single rear axle and a super short wheelbase. When I saw this sitting in a junkyard, and got a good look at how good of shape it was in, I knew that I had to turn it into a project. Besides, there is just something about these old cabover trucks that every gearhead loves! The response was great when we stuffed in the hot Duramax diesel engine and custom air suspension, but people really went crazy when we put on the vintage Schlitz beer kegs for fuel tanks, and fit the vintage wrecker bed on the back. Since this is a former Navy truck, the name “Heavy Metal” was a natural fit.
