I found another 1933 B-3 International

Another truck! I had a friend send me a email about a 1929 International on Ebay that looked a lot like my 1933. I took a look and sure enough it was a B-3 and it had a lot of parts I needed. (mostly fenders, hood and grille.) It also had another complete engine. So a couple bids on Ebay and I was the proud owner of a second truck.  So my Father, Son and I went to Texas to pick it up. A gentleman named Andrew had the truck. He had saved the truck from being scraped and wanted to try to restore it, but would have needed to have another truck to restore his. Lucky for me I saw it. The passenger side fender is almost perfect, it has a whole hood! and all the steering linkage I need to replace on mine. So a big thanks to Andrew for saving the truck from the scrap yard. It is going to a good home and going to be put to good use. And save me a lot of time and money. It is guy's  like Andrew that look at these old trucks thinking that it is not just scrap and save them from being a memory. You can't save them all but when parts are this scares, I am so glad he did! My luck on this rebuild is unbelievable Granddaddy must be watching over it. From the beginning it has been spectacular! The day before we left to get the truck in June I met Tom Underwood that had all my engine parts. The weeks  after any thing that broke, caused me trouble has been a easily fixed. I have talked with many people and met many others that have Internationals that have helped me with knowledge of the trucks. I couldn't be doing this with out the people helping me on this project. So thank you! And a big nod to Granddaddy who started this all.
