GRUNT – A 1964 International C1100 Shop Truck for Weaver Customs
Randy Weaver’s “Grunt” 1964 International C1100 Shop Truck is a most befitting parts hauler for his rod shop – Weaver Customs in West Jordan, Utah. Weaver’s calling card is diesel engines, turbocharged Cummins in particular.
Found in the middle of a field in Cheyenne, Wyoming in the summer of 2016, Grunt was ripe for the picking. Being last tagged in 1982, Weaver knew he had to put it back on the road, and knew just how to do it.
Tucked underneath are one-off custom billet 22×9 inch solid wheels which were painted to match Grunt’s stock blue patina. To preserve that perfect patina, Axalta flat clear was applied. Adam’s Polishes shines Grunt up, as best they can.
To solidify Grunt’s road-worthiness, Randy, Sydney and some friends piled in for the 2017 Hot Rod Power Tour and completed the Long Haul starting in Kansas City, MO, venturing through Newton, IA, Davenport, IA, Champaign, IL, Madison, IL and Indianapolis, IN before arriving in Bowling Green, KY. Nary a problem surfaced proving Randy’s masterful touch.
This truck is special. It’s always reliable, gets down and dirty rain or shine, can haul a heavy load and over the past year has become a staple in West Jordan, Utah. Townsfolk smile and wave as Randy and Grunt run around town, stylin’ and profilin’.
