1940 International D2
In the height of the 'art-deco' era of the late-1930's International commissioned the re-design of their light and medium duty truck line. The result was what you see here in this beautifully-designed International D2 1/2-ton pick-up. Arguably one of the most beautiful and artful of any purpose-built truck ever built. International followed the design cues of top of the line luxury cars such as Packard and Cord in their pontoon style front fenders. The barrel shaped grill design features stainless steel trim that wraps around and down the hood sides completing that remarkable 'art-deco' design!
Finished in Metallic Green over Gun Metal Gray fenders this 1940 International D2 1/2 ton pick up has undergone a full nut and bolt restoration with complete photo documentation. The beautiful paint that you see today is in excellent condition with no major imperfections to be found. The front chrome bumper is equally as nice. During the restoration the pick up has also benefited from new rims, tires and spray on bed liner.
Inside the interior has been replaced with black vinyl on the bench seat and all chrome accents have been redone also. The switch you see on the steering column is for the electric cooling fan installed in front of the radiator, making sure the truck does not overheat. The gauge cluster looks new and is in great condition.
Under the hood you will find the International inline six cylinder engine connected to a 3-speed manual transmission that has also been fully rebuilt along with the rear end. With a couple of pumps to the gas pedal and a push to the starter button this vehicle fires right up and runs and drives beautifully down the road.
The underside is like new just like the rest of the vehicle with new exhaust and suspension. The VIN is 80615 and is being sold on a clean Iowa title. Buy with confidence, seldom does a 1940 International pick up become available to the public in this restored condition.
