After all, you went to Kansas several times to get it, make it worth your while. Dust to dust…yet the earlier Binders, and even some A and B trucks on which this was based, seem to have survived. It ran well but was missing some torque, empty was great down the road. Graham is exactly right except the build sheet is called a line setting sheet. I have a 62 c110 that I am restoring.
International now is so buisy building motor home chassis and engines for other companies along with there own marks……. There the old Binder sat, until I was hit with a lightning bolt of motivation last Saturday. Interesting comments about the way a buyer could fit out Internationals with different features and builds to suite needs and preferences. A towing package and oversized radiator have me wondering whether I could use this to tow my race car around. There is no such thing as a standard. By the time I hired on this truck was 5 years old, and was anything but factory fresh. Anyone looking for a good looking truck to add to their collection.
Funny the decisions that people make about paint color not good or sell strategy no pic of the rebuilt engine. Others were just untrue…they claimed their engines were designed for trucks. A couple of recessions, poor agricultural sales, an aging light truck line and an insatiable desire to show stockholders dividends and thereby killing cash reserves spelled doom. We build for other purposes. Ran across the pictures when trying to look for a web site to list a classic 1964 one ton International Pickup.
Not a truck for the highway, but will happily hum along forever on the B roads. It is possible the name belonged to a private party given the model year and former Missouri state law requiring owners to place their names on their pickups. His reply was that he had seen how they were made and wanted no part of one. It needs a master cylinder and some other brake work, tires, seat, and some electrical work that I know of. So it goes…so it goes. And for this then 18 year old, catching 3rd gear instead of reverse was an acquired skill.
I suppose the Ford 7. Finding an International pickup of this vintage is unusual. On the other hand, growing up in the S. Parts are a bear to find. I was always intrigued by how International designed such a low beltline on the sides of these. The old girl looks like she is ready for the adventure of a weekend trip in the woods. It seems there was concern in both Illinois and Missouri about how people would use their pickup, thus the law.
C1300 392 engine with a 4 speed manual. I will take some photos of the bits of rust here and there. At about 400,00 miles my wife ran it out of oil so we replaced the engine with a low mileage 266 out of a scout. I was taught how to drive in that old truck. These can be very luxurious.
The Cadillac and Lincoln versions were just the natural culmination of this trend. I vote for fixing the truck, once you part it out it's gone forever. I found him one very similar to this for a steal. They had banked on the loyalty of their mostly rural dealerships and agricultural customers who were also purchasing tractors, combines, etc. I would love to have one of these again. Later on I bought a travelall parts truck with 4X4 and power steering that I used to convert the old truck to a wheeler. The interior pictures highlight the new door weatherstripping as well.
Within an hour, I had the beast up on jack stands and its wheels off. Their own sixes were still used in heavy-duty ½-tons and up. Not these lower-riding later models, still with the archaic wraparound windshields…a 60s time warp. I may have to keep watching this auction… care to join me? These were tough old trucks, I miss them. They are very heavy, forged cranks, sodium cooled valves, heavy castimgs and forgings throughout. And finally when we retrieved it from that lonely field with hope in its eyes to once again be driven and loved, Hank, this truck is looking to you to fix it up.
But this bed is impressive. The painted over signage on the door could be explained by this as well. I test drove it for him, then he drove it. They have the reputation for being very tough, but not very luxurious. There is no such thing as too many Binders! Every one of them are now running and working around the place. . But it was just too much truck for him.
It has a flatbed on it. They were also used as heavy-duty marine engines. They had personality, especially the oldest one, a 1966. This one does look much better than many though. I don't even try and use the parts tractor excuse on my wife anymore, she caught on quick. Give it the new life it deserves.
