International's whats your take

Post by JayceLane » Thu 27 Jun 2013, 15:20

Well I am always looking for something different. I have come across an International that I could acquire but know quite little about them. Have any of you had any direct experiences. Some pics for reference. Just so that everyone is clear, this is not the actual vehicle but what it would look like if I were done with it.

Very nice. My late Dad had one with a 3-speed floor shift V8. Very strong!

I had a 1957 a looooooong time ago. I would buy it again. Didn't want to sell it, but the price was right.

The last International I saw (1978) had a 2 barrel Holley carb on the V8.

Because it only had one float bowl, we called it "die halwe holley"

Hi Droster, I did not as the seller decided to not sell anymore. They had outstanding license fees on it and wanted to sort that out first and decided they would fix it up themselves and sell later. Very frustrating as I was quite keen. I would love to see pics of yours though.
