1948 IH Truck Plus Suzuki Samurai Plus Lots Of Work Equals... Parade Car?

Here we have one of those projects that's just downright puzzling. Say you've got a 1948 International Harvester K-1 truck with a '48 Chrysler straight-eight flathead engine, you're packing serious metalworking skills, and you want to make something different. There's only one logical choice: you graft a Suzuki Samurai body onto it, add a long Zimmer-style hood, and you get a "parade car" for the ages. The Buy It Now is under seven grand, which is a steal given the level of craftsmanship. We're thinking race-car tow vehicle here. Thanks to UDMan for finding this one! [eBay Motors]
