AJ1794's 1953 International R110
« on: December 03, 2017, 12:44:54 PM »
I recently picked up a truck I've been wanting for nearly a decade. I had a R120 3/4 ton from my grandparents but it needed A LOT of work. Browsing Kijiji one night I found this and I was sold.

It's a 1953 International R110 1/2 ton long box, 220ci Inline 6 with a whopping 90 hp and 175 lbft and 3 speed transmission. With 7900 original miles the body is in extremely good shape except the tailgate and bed floor. It only has one rust hole in the rear lower cab corner. It runs and drives great overall, I actually drove it from central Edmonton to my dads place in Sherwood Park to store it for the winter.

Looks to be in great shape, are you planning on painting it?

Eventually, kinda want to rock the look it has now for awhile. The previous owner did a half ass paint job on the bed and front fenders so I may sand it down and do a black primer.

Very clean. When my health (and finances) are better I hope to pick up something similar.  Looks like a fun toy.

It was extremely fun to drive. I'm going to have a hard time not wanting to take it everywhere.
