1956 International RD-220

Not too long ago Spencer contacted me with a video of a pretty cool truck, his International RD-220.  Originally this great truck belonged to his grandfather and was used to help with the construction of Interstate 87 in New York.  You will notice that the hood is much longer than a typical R-Series, this was necessary to fit the large diesel engine, a Cummins NHB-600.  For the past 30 years the truck has sat parked in the same spot….until now!

Let this be a lesson to all of us, have a front end loader handy at all times.

Good luck on your restoration Spencer! And don’t forge to keep us updated!
