Car description

1952 International Harvester L110 Panel / Delivery Van. Running and driving.Had an exterior restoration about 20+ years ago (not to original color). Was used on occasion for the business as listed on the decals (I kept the International after I sold the business), nd has not been used except rarely for about the last 15 years. It's got the factory 16" wheels and hubcabs. Three speed transmission (3 on the tree). Original motor dropped a valve after a valve adjustment (following restoration), o the motor that's in there is from a 1968 pickup (I believe it's a 240). Hybrid voltage conversion - conversion to 12 volts, ncluding installation of alternator, ut gauges and heater at factory 6 volts. Original motor is still available, an negotiate figuring out how to include it, f desired. Not just used around town, lso driven to towns 60 or so miles away. It's got turn signals, rake lights, ne headlight working (I think the other light has a loose wire/connection, s it used to work fine). Wipers work, riginal heater works. What's not working at the moment is the horn, ne of the instrument lights, nd the parking lights on the back. However, he light issues might also be a dirty light switch, s turning it on and off a few times initially got the lights working. Seat is not original - it originally came from the factory with a bucket seat. This is from a dry region (Central Oregon), o it's in great shape, etal is solid, nd only a few areas of common rust (behind side doors, ight above running boards). Odometer says 56966, dometer works, ut due to age, ctual mileage is unknown.I also changed the side emblems from the very thin stamped, o the heavier cast/chromed ones. I couldn't find any heavy L-110 emblems, o that's why it has L-120's on it now.Pros;
  • Starts right up, uns and drives
  • Brakes were new at completion of restoration
  • It's driveable, nd may be street-legal in your area with a little bit of work (again, orn and parking lights need attention, hould bleed brakes again)
  • Original wheels, ubcaps, oor hinge mirror mount
  • New glass in back doors, ain door windows
  • Back doors work, ewer hinges at restoration
  • Heater works
  • I believe most of the gauges work, nd the speedometer works
  • New clutch was installed at time of motor swap
  • Wheel brake cylinders were replaced at time of restoration (but not the brake master)


  • brake master loses fluid if vehicle is not used regularly
  • left front tire has a slow leak
  • tires are old, tarting to check
  • missing interior trim on doors
  • clear coat coming off in several areas, o it will need repainting
  • old bodywork needs redone
  • rust bubbles forming behind doors, bove running boards (very common for these)
  • front windshield has a crack
  • back door latch is missing the lock in the handle
  • it's slow - maximum speed of about 55mph
  • interior is original, ough and incomplete
  • actual mileage is unknown
  • battery is older, ay not hold a charge

I would NOT drive this any great distance - it's over 60 years old, nd should be gone through, rakes bled, tc, efore hitting the road. It is not currently licensed.

I have done my best to describe the vehicle to the best of my knowledge. Again, t is over 60 years old, nd there are no warranties, mplied or expressed. If you have questions, lease ask. I am happy to work with an inspector of your choice coming out and inspecting the vehicle. The reserve price is fair - please don't worry about what the reserve is (questions inquiring as to such will be ignored), imply bid what you're comfortable bidding, r would buy it for. Happy to help work with the shipper of your choice. If you're not too far away, elivery might be negotiable. Vehicle will also be listed for sale locally, o I reserve the right to end the listing early.

No overseas buyers, hank you.

When you find these, hey're typically incomplete, noperable shells that need a lot of mechanical work. Now is a rare chance to own a running, riving 50's panel van.
