Are there are any other IH Metro Van owners a stones throw away in the DMV (DC, Maryland, Virginia) area? Would be nice to network with other owners?

from what I can find out, I believe it is a 1960-1962> The picture of the METRO tag in your gallery shows it to be an AM series. Here is some info on Metros. Pinning down the year is not easy. The speedometer looks to be a sixties style also. International Harvester Metro Van - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Had some time to do some more research. There are some other things that point to it being a later model. In 48 they were still using flathead engines, and this van has an overhead valve engine. Could have been updated at some point. Also the grille and parking lights are the newer style. Round lights instead of rectangle and the grille has the two wide bars in the middle where the older modles had small bars all the way. Hope this helps narrow down the year.
