This is a super-rare 1959 International Harvester B-102 short bed smooth side pickup. 1959 IH b100 truck facts - It is not a factory 4x4. I put the 4x running gear on it. The mileage is unknown. The cluster is not original. I replaced it with the one from the donor truck.

It is the only one I have ever seen in person, and have only seen a few online. Perhaps their most attractive year for styling... I love the vertical dual headlight and grill front end.

This one was red with red and black interior, now an old white repaint with black interior, gray bucket seats out of an Explorer or similar truck, mounted to the original bench seat frame, and adjustable just like the bench was, plus the reclining feature... not bad.

The engine is original and rebuilt with very few miles... the previous owner estimated that it had fewer than 2,000 miles on it after being rebuilt. He had plans to turn this into a one-off show truck, and painted the engine a candy color of some sort... as you can see, the paint was not engine paint and it cracked. Helps to show off all the new gaskets and seals, though! It fires right up and runs like a top, but could benefit from a carb rebuild; I have to play with the choke a bit to get it just so, and then it runs like a smooth, powerful, and sound engine... no funny noises, starts right up, runs very well and smoothly on all cylinders, new tune-up parts, etc. Good solid brakes, steering solid. Decent to good condition obviously oversized all weather radial tires on plain black steel wheels (stock?). Looks tough, unique, and very cool. This truck turns heads now, if taken to the next level with a nice paint job and full interior, it would be truly amazing.

Body has dings and dents, nothing major. You can see the bed spot welds more prominently on the passenger side for some reason. Cab corners had a little bit of rust that was body worked over (truly minor, no fist-sized holes), floors are just about perfect with a few pinholes I addressed with body seam sealer. Very, very solid, original, and rare. Driver's door glass is out; comes with a complete replacement door with good glass and regulator.

Clear title in hand that matches the VIN exactly for export, inspection, etc. Four-wheel drive and locking hubs all seem to be in proper working order. I know it needs to have shocks installed, but I think that's the only thing it really "needs" to be a safe daily driver. The gauge cluster needs to be addressed *(speedo cable connected, gauges,checked, etc). Lights, turn signals, brake lights all work. Charging system works, new battery. Good clutch, pressure plate, etc.; engages and disengages just as it should, shifts smoothly.
