Description for International Harvester Other 1953

This truck was a project that my grandson helped me with but I have too many old vehicles and this one must go. We went thru the brakes. converted to 12 volt. did what little body work ( small dents. no rust) that was needed and painted it. Not a professional job but not too bad. The old wooden flatbed was all rotted out so this steel diamond plate bed was added along with the side toolboxes. Heater works but needs a multi speed switch . The motor is out of a 1956 1 ton international. The original motor was a 220 cc that was starting to smoke and was replaced with a 240cc International motor that had about 40. 00 miles on it when the 1 ton was wrecked a few years ago and maybe 5. 00 more miles have been added since. The tranny is the original granny 4 speed. Almost everything works except the speedo (I found another cable but just have not put it on) and the gas gauge. I recently added the new 12 gallon gas tank and I carry a 2 gallon gas can in the toolbox. I have owned this truck for about a year now and I drive it regularly A ton of extra parts go with it in this auction like carbs. starter. Brake drums. electric wiper assembly. clutch. pressure plate. flywheel. nbsp;the sun visor shown and much. much more. It has new door panels and a new headliner. Wish it had power steering and radial tires which would make it easier to handle but I still enjoy driving it. This is a lot of old truck for not much money as it will take very little to finish it up. The truck is sold as is so please ask any and all questions before you buy. This is the only 3/4 ton duel wheel I H C that I have ever seen this old. It is registered and titled as an antique.
