CC Outtake: Suddenly, It’s 1950!


If anyone’s noticed my absence over the past couple weeks other than a stray comment here or there, boy, do I have a story to share with you! Until I have time to write it up, here’s a shot of two COALs from 1950, my Ford 8N and International L-170, featuring the Comfo-Vision cab.


I restored the 8N about five years ago and it gets worked hard year-round here on the farm. The Binder (a common nickname for International trucks) was purchased with an eye toward restoring for use in hauling hay. My upcoming story has to do with why the Binder is no longer sitting in the back of the machine shed.
