1952 International Harvester L-110 Pickup with Provenance

Here’s why the restoration required 10 Years and hundreds of hours:

The owner was an aviation mechanic who restored Vintage Airplanes.

The original silver diamond 220.ci inline 6-cylinder engine was rebuilt with .30 over pistons and balanced. The stock 3-speed column shift transmission rebuilt, flywheel, clutch, and drivetrain are all balanced.

The frame, front end, rear end, and suspension were all rebuilt and powder coated, stainless steel “allen bolts” used in re-assembly see photos. When the dash was out, it was chrome plated along with the bumpers and many trim pieces

New diamond tuck interior

New glass (driver’s side window small chip on the edge) and weather stripping.

All gauges rebuilt.

New 12-volt wiring harness.

New tires, rims, hubcaps and rings.

Heater, wipers, turn signals, lights and horn work as they should.

The brakes are like new and steering is very tight.

New truck cover by California Car Cover (Top of the line)

Current mileage is 53442 original miles, that’s only 1,397 miles since the restoration was completed.

Runs all day at 55-65 Mph with the 4.11 gears.
