In September my Son and I went to Kansas to meet up with a man that I had met at the antique and historic truck show in May. He is a parts dealer for old International trucks and tractors. We bought a parts book, and a new piston set still in the original box! and found out that he most likely has all the bearings and other parts I need to completely over haul the engine.

Today I took the truck down to the local Hwy Patrol to begin the title work. Since the title is long gone it's a bit of a headache to get a title a lot of paper work. After that was done my brother and me were looking at the truck when I shook the door to show him( even after cleaning) how much dust was in the doors, when out fell a small blue bottle! To my amazement after a little research it was a Vics Drops bottle from the 1940's. A few days later I received my first restoration part. Which was a new head light lens. The only bullet hole in the whole truck was threw the drivers side headlight.
