You are bidding on a very well preserved1968 International Harvester 908c Pickup truck with 304 V8 engine.
This pickup truck has been in the same family since day 1, when it was bought new in 1968.
It was been very well cared for and had been babied all its life. The original engine (266 V8) was replaced in February 1982 with a factory rebuilt 304. This engine has 29,000 miles on it. The truck was repainted (in its original marine blue color) in 1991.
The truck has been parked inside a garage for the last 29 years, and only driven about 30 miles a year since then, for exercise and maintenance. The odometer reads 28,908, but stopped working in 2014. Actual milage is estimated to be 29,000.
