The last company to develop an all-new truck following World War II, International Harvester launched its new L-Series for the 1950 model year. It was truly an all-new truck, from the wide three-man width “Comfo-Vision” cab with two-piece rear windows to the one-piece left or right side opening hood (just like Buick), and the Silver Diamond engine tucked underneath. At the time, it was the only pickup to have an all-insert bearing, a fully pressured oil system, and an overhead valve engine.
While this appears to be a complete truck with minimal rust, given the high end of these trucks command only $27,800 the restorer will quickly be underwater on the costs. Good luck with the purchase!
Here’s the seller’s description:
“1952 International L110. Restoration started. 35K original miles. Truck runs. 3 on the tree manual transmission. Extra Windshield, hood, and door.“
