    I've been reading and referencing though these pages for well over 6 years.. So I thought it was about time to start giving back what I can , when I can ...
    Current and almost complete project is a 1931 ford roadster ( brockville body) on 32 ( repop) rails ... ( when I figure out pictures, I'll post )

    In the last 6 years I have had
    1964 f100
    1964 ford galaxie 500
    1964 oldsmobile jetstar ( sedan)
    1964 oldsmobile dynamic 88 (hardtop)
    1929 ford roadster pickup
    1931 ford coupe ( henry)
    1956 International S110 , that I just traded for a harley ...

    All were non runners and all needed lots of love ...
    Been searching for that one that just makes you stop .... this roadster may be it ..

    And for the record... this appears to be an abandoned street rod project of some kind .. so the rear disc brakes came with it .. hopefully I can turn this thing around ... I'll need to find some different wheels for sure .

    Believe it or not , even all new parts required a few trips to ACE...

    Thanks Wesley.
    That is a very cool red corn binder. The particular 1956 S-110's are very over looked, but if they are not rusted out, they are very worthy to be invested into. Built very strong. This one just sold on Mecum for 39 K, but it was a rare one that had a full frame off restoration and was put back to all stock, it was an automatic as well from the factory. I am sure there was a lot more than 39 K invested in the build, somebody got a very nice ride indeed!

    This was the one I owned back in the mid 70s, it was a retired bell telephone line service truck, it was a lot of fun to drive and easy to work on, I should have never sold it, and these trucks now are very hard to find with that service box on them. ( The box is made by Hi-way MFG ).
    56 IHC phone truck (2).JPG 56 IHC side view (2).JPG hippy phone truck.JPG To me, the 56 IHC S-110's had the right proportions and and the right stance and look, nice flat floor boards, tons of room under the hood to work on the engine. Wished I would have known about the red International you traded for the Harley. Just curious if you have other 56 IHC S-110's that you can post pictures of.

    Just a tip for you, the older ( 1956 ) S-110 IHC line service phone trucks are hard to find, if you run across one like this, even with the hokey ladder racks, either snag it for yourself, if its not a rust bucket, or get a picture of it and post it here if possible.

    Thanks for posting the red corn binder.

    That 57 international was my first one , and I completely agree that they are over looked and under rated . Which is great for guys like us ... it was a fantastic truck with 3 on the tree ... I'll be getting another
