These pictures illustrate this IHC Truck as it was found years ago as part of an estate of a well known Collector. [SOLD]
1913 IHC Auto Wagon High Wheeler Model MW, Serial #2184
Note: This Truck was equipped as an American LaFrance hose & chemical wagon in Northern California until 1920 when it was replaced by a Model T Ford. The truck was sold to a Farmer and was striped of most equipment to facilitate his agricultural requirements [notice the 'trailer hitch' on the rear panel]. In the following years, the next owner researched & located most of the American LaFrance equipment that was original to this model. This particular truck is very rare due to the limited number produced. This is the perfect collectors truck due to its ideal small size.
