Barn find IHC
« on: July 12, 2017, 09:52:22 AM »
Grabbed the camera quick, looks to be a 1939 International pickup.   Upon enlarging the pic I realize I sort of know the guy,  has had several rods over the years, bet he will change the wheels soon.  Unbelievably straight as Internationals had a tendency to do hard time as farm trucks.

I love me some old school pickups. That one's sweet. It's getting tough to see them in original shape like that anymore.

There were a few years that IH actually made visually appealing PU trucks and this was one of those years. I like them still a little shaggy like that one.

Nice, but I hope he doesn't change the wheels.

Same around here. I've been looking for a project vehicle and every rotted POS is priced like it's made of gold.
That's a gorgeous truck. I'd just make sure it was mechanically sound and drive it every day.

I don't think it pays to restore a vehicle from junk status.  Buy one already done or with the hard work done and finish to suit. 
That scalloped box end is one of the few BB features that doesn't make Elroy puke

I doubt it is riding on OEM rims now anyway. It is sporting whitewall tires which look like late model radials to me. Originally that truck would have had split rims and old bias plies that look tall and skinny like the early Ford 600 x 16 inch tires did.

Not a lot of places will work on split rims for you anymore and a lot of guys ditch them for one piece rims that every tire shop will work on.

Our very first truck  was a 1938  cornbinder using that cab.   It was the first  'all steel' cab that   IH used.    It was on everything
from pickups to their tandem axle 'heavy' trucks.      We used it as a general farm truck  from 1954 to 1964,
Before conversion to a farm truck it had been a standard oil delivery truck.    It featured a 250 cu in 6 banger
and a 4 speed transmission.   about 15 mph between each gear.     it would go something over 50 mph but
started to vibrate so  much that it was rarely driven over 45 mph.     I learned to drive truck in this creature
when I was about 10 years old...    I would drive it around the field with a hay loader hooked to the running
board.   In those days we got much of our hay out of  swamp land along the Columbia River, so I had to learn
to drive in the field without stopping  or getting bales stuck in the chute, as there was only the 'high ground'
where you dared stop, as the swamp was a  peat bog,   as you could drive accross it and the sod would
support you and just leave tracks---  unless you stopped.   I could hardly lift a bale then so my older brother
would stack the bales as drove.    We  would pile them 7 high--- 3 in the rack---5 above and get around
150 bales on, by makeing the 3 wide above the rack--- and a bit over width.

Of course it doesn't pay, the real problem is your never done....
