IHSS Posted May 16, 2022 Report Share Posted May 16, 2022 Just picked up a 2003 SS in pretty cruddy shape. Body is pretty beat, engine is MIA, etc...BUT it has the transmission, Tcase, axles, etc all intact and working well. I restore International Scouts and pickups for a living, and I have a 1974 IH stepside shortbed pickup. You can likely see where this is headed...but I am fixin' to whack a hunk of the SS frame out to shorten up the wheelbase, and slap it up underneath the IH body, drop it til it'll collect lost coins off the asphalt, toss an LS of some sort in there (likely just a warmed up 5.3, but we'll see), and build us a killer shop runabout truck. I literally just started digging into what makes the suspension and whatnot on an SS different from a "normal" Silverado 4x4, so I will certainly have a list of questions for knowledgeable folks soon.
