International RC180 Leaves garage

1955 International Harvester RC180 road tractor. Very rare truck. Spent it's working years in the San Jose area. Got parked 5 years ago right across from the Oakland coliseum. When I came across it, I was told it was "running when parked"(haha, famous last words in old truck collecting). The motor was rusted solid and we had to pull the head and the pan; then to beat it like the proverbial rented mule/red headed stepchild,etc until the pistons moved again. And they did/do. Lots more to do; no brakes, leaking oil, etc but nice to save an old truck, an old binder. I'd like to get a shorty step deck trailer to load some of my other old trucks and cruise to a show or two. BD308 for you afficianados.

Junkyard Truck [S4 Ep.2-1]
On this episode, Stacey goes where all of us have been before to pull an old derelict SEMI TRUCK ('69 Loadstar/International) out of a quiet junkyard to demonstrate the steps necessary to get an old, neglected vehicle running again. From rat's nests to chicken poop, it's all here as Stacey slowly coaxes the old truck back to life. This show definitely drives the point home that if something like this can be revived, there's NOTHING that you should be afraid to tackle as long as you are armed with a set of tools and a sense of adventure! Go get 'em!
