1947 International Pickup – 390 FE Big Block Powered Hauler
2014 Detroit Autorama – Hot Rod’s at Their Best #4
Many times, I’ll take bunches of pictures of hot rods I like at a car show. Too many times, I don’t post those pictures cause I never interviewed the owner. It’s best for me, and hopefully you the reader to see AND hear why, “My Ride is Me” but if should I hold back the pictures? How many visitors only look at the pictures anyway??

Here’s a 1947 International pickup from the basement of the 2014 Detroit Autorama basement. What first struck me about this hot rod and many others in Detroit is the variety of engines! Don’t you get tired of too many small block Chevys? No denying their worth, but… I like variety! That’s why when I saw the 390 Ford FE motor stuffed into this lightweight pickup, I knew I had to get more shots of it!
The owner is Jay Lawson from Plainwell, MI. I’d love more details Jay! So if you know this car or Jay, please show them this story so we can get some more details of the build. Leave a comment below or email to moc.emsiedirymnull@nimda.
