Vehicle Description

Gateway Classic Cars of Tampa is proud to offer this numbers matching 1956 International Harvester S160. This truck has tons of potential to be made into a car hauler for taking your collection from show to show. The International S series is a range of trucks that was manufactured by International Harvester. Introduced to consolidate the medium-duty IHC Loadstar and heavy-duty IHC Fleetstar into a single product range, the S series was slotted below the Transtar and Paystar Class 8 conventionals. The IHC S series was produced in several variants for a wide variety of applications, including straight trucks, semi tractors, vocational trucks, and severe-service trucks. Additionally, the S series was produced in other body configurations, including a four-door crew cab, cutaway cab, cowled chassis, and a stripped chassis (primarily for school buses). The chassis was produced with both gasoline and diesel powertrains (the latter exclusively after 1986), single or tandem rear axles, and two, four, or, six-wheel drive layouts. The last complete product line designed within the existence of International Harvester, the S series was produced in its original form through 1989. To reflect the change to Navistar, a major facelift updated the exterior and interior of many models, which were produced through 2001. As a replacement for the S series, Navistar introduced the 4000 series and 7000 series. This truck is getting more and more rare as time goes on. Even harder to find it one with only 52k undocumented miles on its numbers matching drivetrain that still runs strong like this 56 does. The inline 6-cylinder gasoline engine is producing 236 HP from the factory and is paired to a 4-speed manual transmission. The interior has seen some attention on its bench seat that is wrapped in two tone tan and black vinyl. Painted in red from the factory and kept original which really shows its style with age and vintage look. All the cab lights are still intact and look great. Do not let this rare truck slip through your fingers, picture the restored truck with your favorite classic on the back of it!
