1921 International Harvester Pickup

Ameilia Earhart took her first flying lesson in 1921, but had to take a bus to the airstrip. Why walk when you could take this 1921 International Harvester 3/4 ton Commercial Delivery Truck instead, for sale in Winfield, West Virginia for $15,670. This post is part of DT's 2016 Birthday Celebration of 100 cars; enjoy the ride!


Owner says there are only 5 accounted for in North America. This Harvester was last run 2 years ago so a quick hustle around the block would be advisable after seeing the pinched radiator hose in the engine compartment.


A restored truck is still a truck so certainly your friends will ask you to help move. Even if like this one that only sees use in parades you will be asked so get ready. At least with this mode of transportation you shouldn't go missing; or need to ride with someone named Noonan.

  1. Okay, it's got pneumatic tires, which is a step in the right direction. It'd get me to the local Home Depot and other more authentic lumberyards around here, and might be a worthwhile advertising deduction if I decided to hang out my shingle as a general contractor, but it won't tow a Fox or an E30 to Thunderhill in less that two days.

    By the way guys, it's 'Amelia Earhart'.

    1. Oh, wait. Wood wheels. Ain't towing anything bigger than a dog kennel with something with wood wheels, never mind the brakes or powertrain.

      Still, it'd get a load of 2x4s around the area. Maybe.
