International-Harvester trucks are rare enough here at MotoeXotica Classic Cars but we truly found a seldom-seen example with this 1951 International-Harvester L-162 4x4 Stake Bed Truck that has a Chevy big block 454 dropped right in! This big 2-Ton 4x4 truck just looks so aggressive and mean!

Finished in Adirondack Green with an amazing amount of patina that wears so well on this 50's International, the trucks paint and trim are in overall satisfactory condition. The one-piece windshield and other panes of glass are in decent order, however this truck has no windshield wipers. Its lights are intact and mostly clear.

The trucks bodywork is solid and straight and the truck has a functional hydraulic dump bed out back with a new plywood floor. The black front bumper with extra-tall override bar lends a slightly menacing look to the front end. For easy entry/exit, there are corrugated metal steps someone fashioned and installed below the side doors. Other than the corrugated steps, this truck features all original metal, including floor pans and rockers. It rolls on Interco light truck tires, size 37x13.50R18 at all four corners Each tach is wrapped around an aftermarket black-and-silver wheel with a center cap.

In the engine bay is a GM 454 CID V-8 engine with dual exhausts replaces the original inline six-cylinder from the factory. Backing up that big-block motor is a Turbo Hydramatic 400 three-speed automatic transmission and a transfer case with locking hubs. Driver convenience features include power steering and power disc brakes.

Inside, the black bench seat looks great while the headliner, steering wheel and shift lever are all in satisfactory order. The instrument panel has aftermarket oil pressure, voltage and coolant temp gauges underneath it but the speedometer and the odometer are inoperable. The dash and inner door panels are in satisfactory order. The two-spoke steering wheel, shift lever and steering column are lifted from a late 1970s Chevrolet pickup.

The L-series were totally restyled and re-engineered, with styling characteristics that included a one-piece windshield, two-section rear cab window, broad flat fenders and a wide and flat front-end cap. Single headlamps were flush-mounted into keyhole-shaped recesses with rectangular parking lamps below. The new grille consisted of horizontal bars with 19 vertical slots above. The three outermost vertical blades on each side were shorter. A bright metal strip ran across the lower edge of the nose. The bow had an IHC badge and a chrome molding ran up the center of the hood. A painted, wraparound bumper protected the front.

Competition to this truck in 1951 included Chevrolets KS one-ton truck, Dodges B-series trucks Fords F6 two-ton haulers and GMCs one-ton hauler.

This truck has been changed into a capable, modern International and should turn heads and generate questions wherever it goes. Come by MotoeXotica Classic Cars today and check this classic 4x4 hauler out in person!

This truck is currently located at our facility in St. Louis, Missouri. Current mileage on the odometer shows 30,368 miles. It is sold as is, where is, on a clean and clear, mileage exempt title. GET OUT AND DRIVE!!!
