    That is a solid looking truck for $1500. I love seeing a hot rod that is practically “one of a kind”.

    I did some more picture checking on the L series, it looks like it's missing one Chrome bar on the Grill. If I make something up for that that would help with take away the wood burning stove look. It definitely would stand out from the Ford Chevy crowd, Carrie and I are going to look at it tomorrow night.

    They too are not the 'prettiest' of trucks.
    But to me that is the very thing that makes them appealing.
    International A and S series are like belly buttons; everyone's got one.
    But an L series...who else has one of those?
    Our sport/hobby, call it what you will; is all about individuality.
    Who wants to follow the crowd?
    I don't...never have, never will. And I think most on here are of a like mind.

    I'd say if I was looking for another project I'd jump at it. Especially with Mr techinspector1's 'How To' guide.
    Go for your life Seth.
    You've well proved you are capable of building something bloody gorgeous.
    I was just reading about them here - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intern...ester_L_series

    Not a bad looking truck at all imo. and they gotta be rare as hens teeth! So I agree with JB (man that was painful to say/type! _) You surely wouldn't see 2 or 3 of them at the local cruise-in!

    Well i was about 2 hours too late, sold before i got a chance to look at it tonight. I'm not overly upset, i wasn't sure i was ready to start another one anyway. The search is half the fun right?

    My friend showed me some updated pictures of the IH that I wanted to buy. The new owner sent the pictures the the lady that used to own it, and the old owner works at a post office with my friend. I think it would look better in my shop

    Not at all. Someone with deep pockets will come along and put it in a nice dry shop. Strip it down and put it back running. Lots better than languishing about in.the back forty of a private collection.

    Education is expensive. Keep that in mind, and you'll never be terribly upset when a project goes awry.
