1937 International Harvester C1

Our 1937 International is now ready to find a new home

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]With the brakes now rebuilt, the engine running beautifully, a full clean and good run our 1937 International is now ready to find a new home.

We all love her here and everyone who passes by does to so we have no hesitation that she’ll be back on the road with a new owner in no time.

Rebuilding the International Brakes

This is not one of our regular restoration projects. Instead, we have a beautiful truck that has battled the Suffolk weather for many years and survived.

The truck is lovely as it is. Not only is it a very rare piece but it is unique and it is certainly a head turner. Any major works  to the truck would most certainly affect the look and character.

The woodwork around the rear has been removed so that we can strip back and re-varnish.

The brakes have also been stripped back and rebuilt.



Inspecting the underneath of our 1937 International

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]We’ve managed to get our 1937 International C1 over the pit this morning to inspect the underneath and to assess the work that will need to be carried out.

The brakes have now been stripped and will be completely overhauled.

Running up the International engine for the first time

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Peter has spent the morning preparing the 1937 International engine ready for it’s first run up.

It has been sitting in a field under cover for a number of years and it is our intention to look at getting her back up and running and hopefully back on the road someday.

Collection day – 1937 International, 1957 Ford F100

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]This morning we successfully completed the removal of 1937 International and 1957 Ford F100 for their current position.

Both vehicles have been left in storage for many years, in a yard, right here in Suffolk. Due to a bereavement we have acquired the vehicles with a view to recommissioning them.

Once back at our workshops we will fully assess the work required and try to get them up and running.

1937 International and 1957 Ford F100 coming soon

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]We are very pleased to have secured the restoration of a very rare 1937 International and a Ford F100.

Both projects have been stored for a number of years right here in Suffolk, without any works being carried out. Once in our workshops we will assess what actions need to be taken and we’ll put together a project plan.

Due in next week to Bridge Classic Cars.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_gallery type=”image_grid” images=”18179,18180,18181,18182,18183,18184″ title=”1937 International”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_gallery type=”image_grid” images=”18185,18186,18187,18188,18189,18190,18191″ title=”Ford F100″][/vc_column][/vc_row]
