1921 International Stakebed Truck - By Randy Sawyer

According to Randy the origins of the International Truck goes back to Cyrus McCormick and his grain reaper. Scratchbuilt in October of 2007, this model of a 1921 International Stake Truck replaces a similar model made by Randy in the mid-1970s that was accidently ruined. The wheels for this newer version were fashioned from Circus Craft wagon wheels narrowed down considerably with simulated "solid rubber" tires fashioned from 3/8 inch Evergreen styrene tubing. The driver figure is a unique creation made by reconfiguring a truck driver figure by Preiser.
