1959 International B100 $44,900
Sold In 1959, International introduced the first update to their wildly-popular Anniversary truck design and changed the series designation from the ‘A’ series to the ‘B’ series. What you see here is an exemplary example of the first-year B-100 Custom Cab finished in it’s factory-correct Metallic Green Iridescent paint accented with factory-correct Magnolia Ivory. This truck is highly-optioned with the Custom=Cab trim level featuring extra bright-work, 2-tone deluxe interior and full instrumentation. The truck is powered by the 1st-year 266 cid V8, 2-bbl. engine backed by the optional (and desirable) 3-speed automatic transmission. Dual exhaust has been added to this truck for that classic ‘50s exhaust note coming from the smooth-running V8 engine. In addition to the new paint, interior and rebuilt gauges, this truck rides on fresh 7.60 X 15” wide whitewall bias-ply tires mounted on the stock steel wheels accented by the correct IH hubcaps. The truck starts, stops, runs and drives nicely and is a true eye-catcher!

This frame-up restoration started with a totally rust-free Tucson, Arizona truck and features many highly-desirable options such as the aforementioned 266 cid V8 engine, factory-installed 3-speed automatic transmission and the very rare short ‘bonus-load’ (IH’s term for ‘wide-bed’) and factory chrome bumpers front and back.
