Last Sunday morning, I was searching around on CL. Came across an ad for an IH truck that was sitting in a farm field for a long time. It was in the Madison's CL (I am from outside of Milwaukee), so figured it wasn't too far away to take a look at it, assuming it was even still available. After a quick google search of the city listed, found out it was in Iowa. Contacted the owner and sure enough, still available and we could look at it that afternoon. Within 30 minutes, we were heading west with my truck and trailer. A little under 4 hours later, we traveled across Wisconsin, took a few pictures as we went over the Mississippi River, and were at the owner's place. He took us to see the truck, but it required a drive around the property (I wasn't going to say no to this - it was the American Picker's dream kind of property). We got to the truck and I had a chance to look it over. He listed it for scrap price (no title, his dad picked it up a long time ago), so I wasn't expecting a show truck. My big question was how we were going to get it out of the field and onto my truck. Motor is locked up and it's been obviously sitting for a long time. Well, that ended up being a silly question after all. The owner showed us a few other vehicles around the property. Very, very nice guy. If we weren't so far from home, would have loved to just explore! Time to go home! Tailgater. Stopped to check the tie-downs and grab a sandwich. As for my plans for it, I do plan on it being yard art. I have a vision and figured yard art was a better life than being scrapped. It has the right look to it, without looking "too nice" to stick thousands of dollars into it. It would need so much to get road worthy that at that point, I should just look for a truck that's lived a lot further south than around here with the salty winters. It was a nice adventure to pick this truck up. I look forward to getting it off the trailer and in the location I had in mind, and then work on the landscaping around it (and in the bed) that I have visioned in my head. From my understanding (and searching around this site) it's a 1966-ish truck. Model 1100A from the VIN tag.
