    • A fresh find!

      I was at PT's (an excellent local hamburger joint) and this pulled in. It was being driven by a young guy with a kid of maybe 7 or so who I guessed to be his son. He didn't seem to know much about it but thought it was an inline six. It's a 1958.

      I'm wondering if they started with Dodge body bits and reworked them a bit. Some of those lines look like I've seen them before.


      Pretty neat old truck.

          • Dan: That first pic is an ~1957 International Harvester P/U, and I'm thinking it's not modified? There is a fellow in Southern Alberta (George Kirkham) that owns the International Dealership in Lethbridge, he has a LARGE building out back full of restored trucks.
            Mostly IHC, but not 100%. There's one in there that is the same body style & colour as the one you saw @ PT's.

            They even have a separate division that sells resto parts for old IHC trucks

            • The young man driving was pretty clear that his is a '58. Notice that the one I posted is a stepside - I don't know if the fleetside (or whatever IH called them) was an option or if that changed from year to year. The one I posted is really a fairly stripped truck other than the paint job. Cool to see the other IHs!

              BTW - I've never seen a Wagon Master! I wonder if that was a first for a production 4 door PU?

              • Dan: Looking through George's pics, it appears that '57 thru '60 were fairly similar cab & front fenders, but the grille(s) changed, and it would also appear that there were both Fleetside & Stepside style boxes.
                As far as the Wagonmaster, it's a Travelall with part of the roof removed, and cab back panel added. I know Ford stuff (IHC, not so much) & with Ford, Factory produced crews started in 1965 model year.

                But there were crewcab versions of many brands of trucks being produced by COACHBUILDERS as far back as the thirties.......two of the bigger players in the early to mid sixties were Crown, and Stageway.....but looking at the link below, it seems that many of the coachbuilding Co's were bought/sold/absorbed by different Co's, so many had name changes through the years

                There's some good info on this site, but a bit painful to weed through all the extraneous stuff to find it sometimes

                        It was gorgeous. Very overcast that day so lighting was crap and doesn't do the old girl justice. Iowa plates mean it drove at least 3 hours to where I saw it in Beloit, too.

                        • Regarding the International pickup. I know it is not 57 as I had one and the headlights were round chrome rings.

                            DB, I think you've had about every car known to man at some point.
