International invented the 1st Crew Cab PickupFirst Crew Cab Pickup: 1957 International Harvester Travelette

Today, the four-door crew cab pickup dominates the market, but early trucks were mostly single cab designs, with only room for two or three riding up front. International broke new ground when the company launched the first pickup truck with a crew cab body style. The six passenger pickup, called the Travelette, used three doors instead of four in its first few years of production. The truck finally received a fourth door in 1961 when International completely redesigned the machine. Finally there was a truck that could haul six workers to the jobsite. Dodge and Ford soon followed with versions of their own. It would continue to be primarily a work-duty option until the 1990s, when mainstream light-duty trucks received the option—and the crew cab's popularity exploded.

My pictures speaks for itself. I found this unit in VA in a small town government where it was bought new for the Fire Chief. He passed it on down to the Street Dept where they changed its color to white. I talked to one of the old timers who drove it in both departments and said it just wasn't used much which confirms its low low miles.

The truck has little to no rust as shown on it. Doesn't appear to have had any body work. The one door is marked by us to prevent its use as the hinge is about to give so we didnt want to damage anything. A door gasket it in the back floor board which may or may not be used again.

The engine is the largest offered that year for that truck

These trucks are far and few so dont let this one get away.

This truck is for sale on other sites therefore I reserve the right to end this auction at anytime.
