InternationalHarvester trucks are rare enough here at MotoeXotica Classic Cars but we truly found a seldomseen example with this 1951 InternationalHarvester L162 4x4 Stake Bed Truck that has a Chevy big block 454 dropped right in This big 4x4 truck just looks so aggressive and mean
Finished in Adirondack Green with an amazing amount of patina that wears so well on this 50s International, the trucks paint and trim are in overall satisfactory condition. The onepiece windshield and other panes of glass are in decent order, however this truck has no windshield wipers. Its lights are intact and mostly clear.
The trucks bodywork is solid and straight and the truck has a functional hydraulic dump bed out back with a new plywood floor. The black front bumper with extratall override bar lends a slightly menacing look to the front end. For easy entry/exit, there are corrugated metal steps someone fashioned and installed below the side doors. Other than the corrugated steps, this truck features all original metal, including floorpans and rockers. It rolls on Interco light truck tires, size 37x13.50R18 at all four corners Each tach is wrapped around an aftermarket blackandsilver wheel with a center cap.
In the engine bay is a GM 454 CID V8 engine with dual exhausts replaces the original inline sixcylinder from the factory. Backing up that bigblock motor is a Turbo Hydramatic 400 threespeed automatic transmission and a transfer case with locking hubs. Driver convenience features include power steering and power disc brakes.
Inside, the black bench seat looks great while the headliner, steering wheel and shift lever are all in satisfactory order. The instrument panel has aftermarket oil pressure, voltage and coolant temp gauges underneath it but the speedometer and the odometer are inoperable. The dash and inner door panels are in satisfactory order. The twospoke steering wheel, shift lever and steering column are lifted from a late 1970s Chevrolet pickup.
The Lseries were totally restyled and reengineered, with styling characteristics that included a onepiece windshield, twosection rear cab window, broad flat fenders and a wide and flat frontend cap. Single headlamps were flushmounted into keyholeshaped recesses with rectangular parking lamps below. The new grille consisted of horizontal bars with 19 vertical slots above. The three outermost vertical blades on each side were shorter. A bright metal strip ran across the lower edge of the nose. The bow had an IHC badge and a chrome molding ran up the center of the hood. A painted, wraparound bumper protected the front.
