As you might know, we really love our International-Harvester trucks here at MotoeXotica Classic Cars. We are very proud and pleased to present this over the top full profession nut and bolt restored 1952 International R-110 3/4-ton pickup truck. We usually see top notch restorations like this with classic American trucks from the big three but in this instance, we really have to tip our Harvester hat to the boys over at Prescott Hot Rods of Prescott Arizona, for performing such a stand up restoration on a vintage International pickup! Out of all the International pickups we have sold in the last two decades, we can confidently say this one is truly one of the best!
Prescott Hot Rodshave provided us with full photo documentation of the restoration from the very beginning to the end and many of those photos are provided in the listing gallery images. They started restoration with a original truck from Pocatello, Idaho. They even chose a fantastic year to restore as the 1952 was the first year for the R-series, a product of design chief Ted Ornas and the first year for the well known farmer on the tractor IH corporate logo designed by Raymond Loewy which makes this particular truck an excellent collector milestone for International.
This truck was originally made between January and November 1952 in Internationals Chicago, Illinois factory and is a three-quarter ton truck with 127-inch wheelbase, eight-foot cargo bed, 2,800-lb. carrying capacity and 5,400-lb. GVWR. Beneath that exquisite bright green metallic paint are multiple areas with Rhino Liner installed for sound absorption. The green metallic paint and black trim are in excellent outstanding order, as are the trucks lights and windows and you would expect from a professional restoration, the trucks bodywork is very straight and solid and this truck appears in person 1952 showroom new!
The truck features a Comfo-Vision cab, an all-steel one that seats three people with a one-piece, curved Sweepsight windshield for a non-obstructed front view. The truck has split rear windows along with a curved contour instrument panel.
The engine bay is extremely tidy and highly detailed to the very last bolt, same as is the cargo bed, complete with dual, locking compartments behind the cab. On the drivers side running board is a jerry can that matches the trim and a spare tire hangs on the passenger side of the cargo bed. The trucks correct black bumpers and headlight rings are in matching condition to the rest of the body.
This Binder rolls on General Grabber radials, size 235/70R16 tires mounted on black steel wheels with factory wheel covers, including the spare tire. The tires and wheels are all in excellent condition and the front wheels stop excellent with a new heavy duty front disk conversion!
Under the one-piece hood that can be opened from either side is Internationals 220 CID Silver Diamond straight six-cylinder engine matched with the optional T-98 four-speed manual transmission. The motor now benefits from a new quality aluminum radiator. Couple new features of the Silver Diamond engine was new stellite-faced slo-roto exhaust valves rotated during operation. Exhaust-valve seats are of long-lasting durachrome, a high chrome-nickel content metal that insures more efficient valve operation for a longer period of time. Carburetion is new too; the visible-flow carburetor featuring a fast-idle cam that speeds engine warm-up, contributing to greater fuel economy.
Other features of the Silver Diamond engine included a new ceramic-filter fuel pump engineered to prevent vapor lock; hotter spark plugs to minimize carbon formation; a wide-lobe camshaft that lengthens the life of camshaft and
