Technical Name that truck make.

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by 1oldtimer, Mar 22, 2020.

  1. This might be really stupid, but I can't place the make and model of this truck. I was just looking around and found this truck, not looking to buy, just want to know. Looks familiar but can't place it.

  3. That's it 59-60 International B series. I was looking at weirder defunct manufactures.
    Thanks.

    61 Cornbinder had one just like this. Hands down the toughest vehicle I ever owned.

    Nice yard. Looks like there's stuff back to the 30's. Where is it?

    You are going to have to come up with a far better challenge than that for this bunch.

  11. Wait, I was looking at the 2nd photo which showed a limited view of it. The first photo makes it obvious. So....move on folks, nothing here to see...

    Exactly what I was thinking. Must be the rusty body.

    Back in the 70's I worked in an International Harvester dealership (both farm equipment and trucks), one of the owners and I were talking one day and he said "did you know that Harvester and Peterbuilt were going to go together and build trucks?" First I'd heard of it:) he responded "they are going to call them Peterbinders" :) If you "don't get it", IH trucks were called "binders" because in the beginning that was one of their first products in the ag market.

    He's been dead quite a few years and the dealership closed ten or fifteen years after I left it. The building now houses the Atlantic Community School District bus system.

    A friend had a school bus yellow, ex-City of Athens '59 3/4 ton we bombed around in all through 1979. Indestuctible, it was.

  20. I kinda like them. From Google images:

    Whats a " Restricted" plate in Alberta? Is that similar to a "historical vehicle" plate? IE, low mileage, to/from parades and events only.

    I’m with you on heavy duty , stuff . If you drove one as an adult and maintained it , life was unlimited . The power company I worked for , our first field maintenance trucks were Loadbinders , they had welder , air compressor , all installed in a covered utility bed . Loaded to the gills with pipeline fittings and materials . We had one that was Diesel powered , damn thing had a stack straight up behind the passenger door between the cab and bed that was OEM installed . These things took a beating for years and years , start them in the morning and ran all day for 12 - 16 hrs daily never shutting them down , welder and / or compressor running all day also . They would just not give up . As far being the most heavy duty truck ever built , I wold say yes for their time x 10 . The next era heavy duty was the 1st Generation Dodge CTD , they were the best of the modern day warriors . I have one and it’s a beast , all truck no Mom’s SUV here ! Rust was the worse problem with either of these old saints .
