1969 International F210D

Recommended Posts

I'm looking for a truck last seen on the south shore of Massachusetts a year or two ago, any information would be greatly appreciated.  I copied this posting from the posting I put on Craigslist.

 

 

WANTED- Looking for any information available about a mid to late 60s international R series. The exact year and model are not certain to me. The last information I have is that roughly 1 or 2 years ago it was sold by South shore pile driving in Marshfield, MA as a cab and chassis. Previous to that it was owned by R.E.Taylor pile driving and is likely still painted grey with a black chassis and fenders. It was purchased by Taylor around the mid eighties from Wyoming as an oil field Derrick crane or Gin pole truck. He converted it to a pile driving rig and used it up until 5 or 6 years ago. He then sold it to South Shore Pile Driving who removed the Derrick and currently still use the actual pile driving rig. I haven't seen the truck in years, but as far as I know it was an operating vehicle after the boom was removed. It is a tandem axle long wheelbase truck with some sort of Cummins diesel and a 5+4 transmission. I included a picture of a truck that is very similar to the one I am looking for. If you have any information it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Andy. My phone # is (978) 808-9496, call text or email me at aarsenaultjr@hotmail. Thanks again.

Thanks for the reply, I'm hoping someone here might know of some international collectors in Northeast.  Maybe I can make some calls and run it down that way.  Thanks again, Andy

I saw that they had a west coaster from some pics on the web.  I will definitely give him a call.  It will help having the name of the guy who actually collects them.  Thanks alot.  Andy

It is still in New England, I'm hoping to talk to the owner tomorrow.  I had been around this truck since I was about 10 years old and I worked with the owner for a summer when I was about 15.  I was bummed thinking it could be in a junk yard, but fortunately it isn't.   This truck was in service with a 30' Derrick boom on it up till about 3 years ago.  I have a question about the engine in this truck, the ID plate on the door says it it rated at 249 net HP and 270 gross HP.  Would that make it an NH-250 or NH-270, or neither?  I didn't want to open the hood without the owner there, but I'm pretty sure it has the original engine.  Thanks again, Andy

Figure I should put a few more pics up.  I have no clue what to do with this truck yet, initial plan is to just do an extensive service.  Get it roadworthy and inspected, then go from there.  I'm considering removing the flatbed and putting on a fifth wheel.

Neat truck; i always liked that series of IH's. There was a time when they were everywhere in New England and were probably as popular as the B81's were.

Why not just register it with antique tags and drive it home? Sales tax, insurance, etc. will be about the same as the tow bill and you will have to register it eventually anyways.

That's true, but I would have to wait 4-6 weeks for a duplicate title to show up.  I think I m gonna borrow a friend's repair plate and hope for the best.  We will see, need to go look it over good on Saturday morning, hopefully I can drive it home as well.  I already let this thing slip through my fingers once, I don't want to do that again.

That is one cool truck with a great story. Your plan to get it home sounds like the way to go, of course that is easy for me to say. Good Luck.

Very neat truck.  Congratulations.  That flatbed might come in handy sometime.  Is the winch contected to it?  I'd get a tag and drive it home as long as the brakes work.  Good luck.  Mike

what is the trans combo, i see three sticks in it.

 

i learned to drive on sorta the same truck, a 49 L190 single axle tractor with the big gas six cylinder and a quad box.

took my road test in it, and drove that old girl as a daily driver until i was 19, when i bought a 65 dodge W-300

I don`t know about the state you`re in but here in va    you can buy a five dollar 72 hr permit to move a vehicle from one place to another so long as it belongs to you. you might check to see if such is do-able where you are

Congratulations on your new truck .   I love this story because you were actually able to buy the truck . Stories like this usually end with the " the owner won't sell it , because they want to save it "or they think its worth $ 30,000…….    usually 5 years later it is sitting in the same spot , just a lot rustier .  

Thanks for including us in your endeavour . Hopefully you will include us in the work you do to it .  Nice truck :thumb:

When it is safely in your yard, you will need let us know where you found it and details of the chase.

It is in Kingston, MA., the man who ended up with it was a customer of the previous owner (Rudy Taylor) who passed away a month or so back.  I shared a few stories i remembered about Rudy and we had a laugh.  He was a unique guy for sure, very mechanically inclined.  The current owner said that it wasn't for sale, but he thought I should have it.  I'm giving him what he paid for it, and he seemed happy that I want to get it back on the road.  

At the moment I plan on doing an extensive service, fix some of the cab and fender rot.  It's in tough shape, I need to make sure the frame is sound as well.  Long term, from a practicality standpoint I should put a fifth wheel on it and keep it as a long wheelbase tractor with the winch, but it will probably stay as is for this year at least.  I believe the stick with the glitter shift knob is for the winch, so I believe it is a 5 + 4 trans combo.  I'm gonna have to learn quick to get it home!  Any tips for a first time twin stick driver?
