This classic 1940 International Harvester pickup is a fantasy about honesty. A truck with a genuine '40s feel like this one begs for a lazy Sunday drive, and it reminds you of the serenity that a country road can provide.
A classic International truck from pre-WWII years is already a rare sight. It has a cool Art Deco design, flowing fenders, and a rounded split-window cab. So you know it's a pickup of distinction the moment you show up to everywhere from the car show to the hardware .....
store. We love the details on this one, like how the trim wraps around the entire front end and how the bright International hubcaps draw even more attention to the whitewalls (even on the side-mounted spare.) In total, this is a two-tone reminder of an honest day's work. Its labor credentials feel so legitimate that you almost want to draw a father and son business graphic on the side.
Inside is a cab built for long-lasting function. The three-spoke wheel was purely functional decades ago, but today it is beautifully artistic. It has that worn-in grippy feeling that instantly connects you with previous generations. The floor-mounted gearstick has a purposeful steel feel. The windshield pops out to give you the perfect old-school truck breezes. Even when they updated the bench seat to cloth, it still has a tweed that looks and feels period-correct.
The flathead 213ci six-cylinder motor has the true look of an honest pickup in the engine bay. It has the right look of maintenance, and it gives off an industrial symphony of simplicity. It's a rhythmic chug that feels like being in charge of a mini locomotive as the tempo increases as you shift through the four-speed manual transmission. The ride is another exercise in minimalism. Leaf springs and bias ply tires are far from modern, which makes them perfect in this time capsule of a pickup. The full experience of being behind the wheel feels like rolling history.
This is a solid running piece of pre-war history. So you're looking for the ideal Sunday driver, don't miss this distinct pickup. Call today!!!
