Long thin hood side panels truck? tractor? power unit?

I looked through the Truck Spotters Guide but couldn't match them up with anything. They are 39 3/4" long across the top and 12 3/4" tall not counting hinge loops. In the old days these were a nuisance when getting to the engine so many times or for cooling purposes they were taken off and put away or thrown away so they do have value today. Appreciate any help.

Its not from a tractor I recognize- at least not an American market model. They could be off of a truck, but I would think it would be a very heavy-duty machine, like an off-road dump truck or material handler. It is more likely they are off of a power unit of some type - a welder, a pump, the engine on a paver or a well driller or.... a few hundred other applications!

 

What are the un-faded colours on the inside and out? That may provide a clue...

I should have answered when I first saw the pics.  I knew it rang a bell, meaning it looked like it's the same as a 1962 R200 International wrecker where I worked 40 years ago.  I just looked at one online, and it is.

Thank you all,I thought this might be one of those "forever" mysteries. I looked again in the Guide and it's not shown on any of the pics in the IH section so I guess it's not my vision. Thanks again.
