I was at our local engine club meeting a little while ago and had a conversation with the family hosting the event and they said that they were thinning out things in the shed and this was one thing they were thinking about selling:



It is a 1932 International Harvester two ton truck.
Some friends and I hauled it back yesterday.
Probably not too interesting to you guys here, but to me it is significant. I've always had a fondness for IH and Theodore Bethmann was my maternal grandfather.

Looks like a great project Herb, I love all the old trucks, brand doesn't matter. Really cool that it has a family heritage. Jim

Neat truck Herb!

A few years ago, a guy in St. Louis MO was restoring an old truck. When sanding layers of paint off the door, he discovered my grandfather's name on it. He contacted our family, and Grandpa got to see his old farm truck restored. :-)

Very cool Herb. My TT was my maternal grandfathers truck, so I know firsthand how you feel. Do you plan to fully restore it, go through it mechanically but preserve appearance or what?

I don't think that I could ever sand that name off of the door. Right now I think that I should get it running and enjoy it the way it is.
It needs tires. The front are 750-20, and the rear are 32-6. I wonder if they all could be replaced by 750-20's?
I need one lug bolt for a rear dual and a hubcap for the rear wheel you can tell is missing in the picture.
The motor appears to be stuck. If my friend Jim Kraut has anything to say about it its going to be worked on and run.

Looks like it might be a good Model T hauler.

Herb,The 32x6 is the same as a 600x20 and i think you could proably jump to 7.50x20.With those spoked hubs and dayton rims,i think you can do about anything you want!! Bud in Wheeler,Mi.

Nice find. I always liked Internationals. I've got a 47 1 and a half ton. The bigger ones are a lot of fun.

By golly some people can fall into the deep hole of S**t and come looking and smelling like a rose.

Neat truck and hope you do it well.

Wow! Wow! Wow! I learned to drive in the hayfield in an old '45 Ford truck Dad bought at some govt surplus sale about the time I was born. We named it old shakey. We burned the inside of the cab twice and still used it around the farm. Dad used it for hauling scrap iron to Duluth, logs to the mill and hay out of the field. He finally retired it to the grove sometime around 1962 and went out and bought a '51 Studebaker. I still miss Old Shakey.

Couple of farms over from Mom and Dads, Don(RIP), has a 1928 to 31 that looks just like that one except it has a grain box on it. I got to use it when I was still in high school to haul grain with. Darn near broke my arm showing off hand cranking it! Don's son still has it on the same farm it spent most it's life on.

Since Jay is looking for old threads to be revised, I thought I would post to this one for obvious reasons.
I am looking for one hubcap for this truck, a window riser handle and a lug bolt for a rear wheel clamp.
If anyone has a lead on some tires that might fit that would be a help too.

Thanks

Herb

Trucks are the only way to go. So much character and they are so often different from each other.

Contact Outback Parts in Spokane for your needs. They specialize in old cornbinders.

Love the look of those wobblies. :-)

Herb, there is an antique truck club, ATHS(Antique Truck Historical Society, if I recall correctly), that is headquartered in K.C. MO. right near the airport on I29. They have a bimonthly magazine much like the Vintage Ford. I'm sure there would be some good information and contacts there. They surely have a website, although I haven't checked. As said, great find! Dave

Herb; If you lived closer I would be asking my wife if I could go over to Herb's place and play. Good (and very lucky) find!
