There is so much to love about this noble steed. It's everything a guy could ever want in a ratty old pickup.
Just the fact that it's a 1956 International is good enough. John Wayne would be proud to drive it. Factory four-wheel drive!! (insert cave man noises here). It's got decent tires, some new plugs and other maintenance stuff, and somebody replaced the glass, which is a definite plus. It's a four-speed with a granny gear, twin-stick transfer case, 3/4-ton rear axle ... and the clincher, it's had "65 years of patina" clear coated! We love that! Preserve that patina!
It's for sale near Santa Fe, New Mexico, and the seller's name is Ted. Who wouldn't buy an old truck from a guy named Ted?
Hey Ted, WE'D BUY THAT!
