Classifications for Stock, Modified, Wild Modified, & Competition
There are to date more than 58 confirmed classes. Please remember though, judging is always optional. Those who
do not wish to have their vehicles judged are placed in the non-judged display only class.
The following is explanation and breakdown on the classifications and categories:
For “STOCK” vehicles, either restored or original un-restored vehicles that have not been modified in any way.
These vehicles will have all factory stock parts as per the linesetting ticket. In the case of ties the linesetting ticket
may help to decide the tie if the owner has the lineticket available. The following exceptions will be allowed and
considered in the stock class: Radio, Tires, Battery, hoses, and other normal maintenance type items. This means
mag wheels, Aftermarket chrome dress-up parts, headers, hood scoops, window tint, (even stock parts from the
wrong year may be considered in ties) etc. will not be allowed in the stock class. Even though the above mentioned
items (radio, tires, battery, hoses, etc.) will not move a vehicle into the “Modified” class, a vehicle with all of the
“correct” original type items will be given extra consideration during judging for having the “correct” items on that
vehicle. Please Note: IH packaged vehicles such as Midas, Spirit of ‘76, CVI, Commanche, etc., are moved into
normal modified classes when they are no longer considered stock. In other words there is no “Modified Midas”
class, once the vehicle is modified it would be placed in the modified class of the same year and type.
This class is for slightly altered vehicles. This is where the mag wheels, headers, hood scoops, etc. are allowed.
This class is for more extensive altered vehicles. This includes lift kits of more than 4 inches, body alterations or
deletions, non-international engines (not available through IH), & non international interiors.
These vehicles are set apart from other vehicles by one very important modification - Race or Bog non-street
competition only. All vehicles with this modification will be in this class.
In determining wether a vehicle is in the “modified” or “wild modified” class, the classifier will count the number of
modifications that are done to the vehicle. If the Vehicle has more than 4 modification or less, it will be in the
“modified” class. 5 modifications or more will put the vehicle into the “wild modified” class. The following is an
explanation of the types of modifications the classifiers will be looking for and how they will effect the modification
count. There are 5 major areas where modifications will be counted on a vehicle. They are:
A) Basic Bolt-on engine mods: carb, headers, intake etc.
B) Basic dress-up: chrome valve covers, chrome air cleaner, and/or any commercially available chrome dress up
C) Extensive engine dress-up: Chroming of non-commercially available items such as brackets, pulleys, braces, etc.,
braided hoes or covers, custom painting in engine compartment.
Any of the above modifications will count as one modification point.
There is a maximum of 3 modification points possible from the Engine/Engine Compartment
A) Paint: anything from a minor paint accent (discretion of the classifier) to full custom paint job will count as one
B) Body: Non-stock scoops, flares, etc., any or all the these items will count as one mod point.
There is a maximum of 2 possible mod. points in Paint/Body
A) Custom upholstery, Roll Bars (non-stock), Aftermarket seats, removed seats, etc., any or all of the above will
count as one mod. point. Note: Aftermarket radios, steering wheels, & Gauge pods will not count as a modification
separately but may collectively, classifiers discretion.
There is maximum of 1 possible mod. point in interior.
A) Any suspension change such as lift kits, steering stabilizers, traction bars, etc., will count as one mod. point.
B) Any attempt to go beyond normal clean up and/or detailing of the undercarriage. This would be evident by
painting components different than stock colors or any added chrome pieces. Non-stock differential covers and
traction bars are not a modification separately but may be collectively (Discretion of the classifier). In general, an
obvious attempt at detailing the undercarriage will count as one mod. point.
There is a maximum of 2 modification points in undercarriage.
A) Non-stock wheels will count as one mod. point.
There is a maximum of 1 modification point possible in undercarriage
Show Vs Street:
A true “show” vehicle is built, restored or bought to be displayed for the enjoyment of others or for preservation of
history and does not get driven at all or not more than once a month, where-as a “street” vehicle receives non-show
street or trail use daily or weekly.
We reserve the right to make or have classifiers make any “judgement calls” on areas which might not be
covered in the above guidelines. The main intent of this is to make classifications as fair as possible.
