1950 International Harvester Scout
1950 International Panel Delivery
NO TITLE-SOLD ON A BILL OF SALE ONLY
When you think of the company International Harvester your mind automatically jumps to farm equipment. But International had their fingers all across the market. The International Harvester L Series was introduced by International in the fall of 1949 as the replacement for the KB Series and were available as everything from light pickup trucks and delivery vehicles to full-size tractor trailers. Electric wipers, a radio, and a clock were optional. International would continue to produce the line until 1952 when it was replaced by the R Series.
Gracing our hallowed halls here at the Classic Auto Mall, we proudly have on consignment, a 1950 International L115 Panel Delivery that was restored at some point in its life and is still ready to haul the mail, milk, or whatever else you can think of.
Two tons of Fort Wayne, Indiana's finest bathed in Adirondack Green presents very nicely from its prior restoration. Bulbous pontoon front fenders grow from the nose of the truck and swoop down into vinyl covered running boards. Smaller rear fenders grow from the rear of the running boards to arch over the steel wheels before coming to an end at the rear of the truck. Black painted bumpers display at each end of this truck and provide a nice contrast to the green. The chrome has some pitting and the Tri-Diamond logo is present in the hood ornament. Overall the body and paint display well with some scratches and chips here and there. Let's load her up for market!
Utilitarian is the word of the day when it comes to this interior. Black vinyl door panels cover Adirondack steel painted doors, displaying proudly are chrome door handles and window cranks for some extra shine. A pair of black vinyl covered low back bucket seats provide ample support and show no tears. A sparse dashboard shows necessary engine monitoring functions in twin round gauge display. 4 chrome knobs surround the key switch and control the wipers, choke, throttle, and cigar lighter. Radio delete here folks, so start humming your favorite tune to help pass the miles on the country roads. The cargo area is even more spartan than the passenger area with steel siding, a spare tire and wooden slat flooring. This all shows well and is ready for your milk, cheeses, and produce!
A 220ci Silver Diamond Inline 6 cylinder sits under the coffin style hood. Topped with a 1-barrel carburetor and producing 90 horsepower it will handle almost anything you can throw at it. A 3-speed manual transmission is hooked to the rear of the engine and a heavy-duty axle is out back.
Surface rust covers much of the frame and suspension however there is no invasive cancer to be seen here. Four-wheel manual drum brakes adorn each corner to bring this hauler to a stop just in case your eggs topple in the back. Leaf spring suspension shows on the front and rear with an extra set of rear leaves installed by the factory. All sound down here on the farm...
After a once over on the fluid levels and our trusty 6-volt test battery installed my partner in crime and I crossed our fingers, turned the key and pressed the starter button. A few revolutions of the engine and she roared to life, success! She handled our test track with ease and rides like...well a truck. While record setting land speed records aren't in the cards for this truck, power is ample, the transmission shifts smoothly, and the brakes are adequate.
A well sorted truck that will be hard to lose at your local cruise night or produce market. Swing on down to the Classic Auto Mall and take this hauler for a spin, let your mind imagine all the things you can haul. Your imagination is the only limit to what can be done with this piece of history.
