    Yes, that R woodie is about the finest IHC restoration I have ever seen. If you haven't already, search flickr.com for "4x4woodie" and take a look at the resoration sequence. Outstanding!

    The owner has posted a bit over at OldIHC.org

    [continuing hijack]

    Make that over $40k, and nowhere close to reserve. Check pricing for more 'ordinary' woodies and you'll get a sense for the market. This truck was for sale after it was recovered and before the restoration began for $45k.

    It's already consigned for a major collector auction if it doesn't sell on Ebay. FAR out of my league, I'm happy to see someone with deep pockets get obsessed with stuff like this.

    It is interesting to see where woodie prices have gone recently. Not for the faint of heart! Even though the truck based woodies are rarer than the car ones they still do not command the prices of the car based ones. That being said it will be interesting to see what the reserve is at consignment. It should sell for well over 100 thousand.

    Did these woody trucks have any historical importance? Sometimes beautiful, unique and rare are enough reason for that kind of restoration, but its hard to make a profit, or even cover the cost if its done professionally. Probably even harder in this economic environment.

    I know this is a really old post but I have some information on the S140 that you were looking at. My father bought the truck and it is currently sitting in the same spot as when he got it home. I am sure It will never be sold. The original engine was removed and replaced with a diesel out of another airport vehicle (aircraft tug I think) but the swap was never completed. The truck was sold from the airport to Langley and then to east sooke fire departments. Not sure after that. It is all original other than the green diamond motor being pulled.
    The custom back is a one off built for the Victoria airport. He also has a S120 4x4 of the same vintage in the same shape. Don't ask if any things for sale. It isn't
    That is some more info on this particular truck. Maybe this summer if anyone reads this and wants pictures I will take some of the truck and numbers.
