Looks like a solid truck. What kind of info are you looking for?


The L 170 shown a GVW of 16,000lb. Yours shows 19,000 lb  so it is made to haul a larger load than the 170. I do not know what the difference is but I would guess supension. There were lots of models of the 170 series made as International made many configurations for many purposes. It is also Canadian so rhat may make a difference also.  It should be a 1949 to 1951  It shows to have the 269 engine which was the larger of the engines offered

The previous owner told me his father who bought it at a state auction ( provincial-Canada) 15 yrs ago and it used to be a type of firetruck? If what you guys are saying is that it heavier suspension and bigger motor that would make sense probably some sort of pumper truck?

Fire truck is a possibility. Do you have a picture of the back of the cab? It is hard to tell from the pic. but it looks like it may not be the standard way they were built.  That would be a clue possibly.
