About International Trucks
Rumbling across the trenches in World War II, the International truck carved its place in the heart of American history. Built in Illinois since the 1930s, International pickup trucks are tough, reliable, and a favorite of American metal restoration addicts. The modern International dump truck makes its way across construction sites with a DT-466 diesel engine, one-touch dump bed activation, and a 23,000-pound rear end with a patented lift tag axle. The 17,500-pound trailer hitch allows for some serious pulling, and the interior offers leather seats, tilt steering, and optional drop-down DVD screens. The vintage International truck for the collector includes the R-110 series pickup from the 1950s, offering that classic chrome two-bar International grill and the Silver Diamond 220 CID gas engine that pushes 104 horsepower in a six-cylinder version. The three-speed transmission, floating rear axle, and single pane rear window gave the 1954 International an edge over the competition, making it a favorite with classic truck aficionados. The sellers on eBay offer a wide selection of International vehicles, along with the parts and accessories to keep them on the road.
