IH armored truck

Recommended Posts

I am usually on the Pre-war Buick board.  I have a '37 and three Bonus Built Ford trucks but I've always had an interest in IH trucks since I was a kid and my dad bought a use '64 IH Travelall ex-police ambulance. 

 

Anyways, a person posted pictures of this truck on Facebook and I am really interested if anyone here would have any information on it.  The posted only posted the following:

 

"The first Connecticut State Police armored vehicle, in its current condition. So overweight, they ran dual wheels up front to distribute it. "

I would like to know the history behind this too. It must have been a sight to see when in use. The only thing I can tell from the picture is it looks to have started life as a late 50's International. If you find any info please post it here and I will do the same.

Yep, it would scare me into surrendering if I saw either of those rigs pulling up at my hideout.
