MotoeXotica is happy to bring this nearly 100-year old Binder survivor into the 21st Century, a 1923 International-Harvester pickup truck. Within its 124-inch wheelbase resides a flathead inline four-cylinder engine with splash oil lubrication bolted to a three-speed transmission with Hi-Lo. Top speed is rated between 25 and 30 miles per hour.

Its black exterior finish has a great patina from decades of hauling grain, people, animals, hay, wood or other items in its wooden bed. The steel hood, fenders and cowl show extremely well. The side and back slats of its triple box can be removed or added at the owner’s preference. Both glass headlights are cracked from age but are fully serviceable. The metal radiator and fuel filler caps are in decent shape. Beneath the cowl is a 12-gallon fuel tank. The running boards have the same patina as the rest of the truck’s metal exterior, with the International name stamped into them. The top has been recovered in newer black vinyl. Side window glass rolls up and down and there’s a two-piece windshield but it is cracked. In back, the black wooden slats have ‘1923’ outlined in white on the end closest to the cab. Mounted within Firestone Gem-tipped tires are 10-spoke red artillery-type wooden wheels with metal center caps.

Inside, in its three-quarter enclosed wooden cab, the two person bench seat has been newly recovered in maroon vinyl with a single, rectangular window above it. Near the floor shifter is the handbrake. Above the steering column are levers to advance or retard the spark timing and to control the throttle by hand. The floor has been recovered and the headliner is in decent shape.

Some competing examples to this International truck included the Ford Model T with stake bed, the Chevrolet Model 490 Light Delivery and the Dodge Brothers’ pickup trucks.

Stop by to listen to the sounds of this rolling time capsule representing 1923 — when Prohibition was in force, the first Yankee Stadium opened, the Walt Disney Company was founded and the Hollywoodland sign went up in the hills above Los Angeles, California. GET OUT AND RIDE!!!
