Hoping for a 1956 IH R160 COE

From Alex Emond:
"Back in the late fall, I had a chance to refinish the hardwood floors in the Banff house. The product that I used was too noxious to sleep in the house so I drove to Vancouver, stayed with an old friend, bought art supplies and came right back. Nice little drive, fairly painless and when I got back, the floors were awesome and the off-gassing was over. In Hope, British Columbia which is either soaking wet or trying to dry out, I saw "the Beast" -AE

In case you were looking for a nimble, get-around-town ride, AL has found one of these for sale. Oddly enough in Hope (Idaho).
