240 CI INLINE-6, 4SPD TRAN, RUNS/DRIVES GR8, SOLID, UNIQUE, FUNCTIONAL, AND COOL
International Harvester is one of the coolest names in trucks because it has an industrial toughness the rest of them can't touch. So it's truly a special treat to find a classic 4x4 from 1957 in up-rated half-ton S-120 form that has also been given the right care and investment to keep it quite vintage.
Nothing else looks like a like an International Harvester. After all, these shared space at the dealership with industrial machines, not chrome-king convertibles. So the IH trucks really had a ready-to-work attitude ingrained in the design. You see that so clearly here on the classic dark green color with white and black accents where many Detroit guys might have tried to put chrome. But don't mistake modesty for lacking in style. Rounded fenders, tall hood, and the tapered cab have the classic elegance we love in a '50s truck. This one has plenty of details, like the handle for the side-mount hood, real-wood truck bed, and all the right classic IH badges. Plus, that classic-style signage on the bed sides really drives home the cool vintage working charm.
The old-school attitude continues inside. Metal door panels, vent windows, and the springy bench seat make this almost feel like a time machine instantly transporting you to when this was a workhorse. The large and grippy steering wheel still has the grooves of those workmen who have come before you. You'll even love the detail work on everything from the IH badge on the horn cap to the instructions for the 4x4 transfer case still bolted to the dash.
The exceptionally honest presentation continues in the engine bay. This is believed to be the original motor, and with its proper presentation (right down to the decal on the air topper) it's hard not to believe it's anything but original. While this bold red motor looks like a time capsule, it fires up with the kind of ease that signals someone has invested nicely in this one. This 240 cubic-inch motor is part of a long tradition of inline sixes at International Harvester, and so it provides robust power needed when you want your classic truck to be a true 4x4. That's exactly what you want in these higher-series half-ton models. Plus, the four-speed manual transmission has a great old-school feel while also providing the best in control.
An International Harvester is already a rare sight on the scene, and this is the even rarer half-ton S-120 with a tall 4x4 stance. So if you like to stand above the rest (figuratively and literally) don't miss this classic pickup. Call now!
