Faith Hope and Chariot: the 1941International

from Alex Emond. In Lafleche , Sk. we have this little collection of old farm vehicles, all missing their boxes . I couldn't figure out what the oldest truck was--the one on the right. The red one is a circa 1941 International Harvester and then the green circa 1952 Fargo, a Canadian Dodge. A sight for sore eyes ... Faith, Hope and Chariot. The two older trucks have the crank-out windshield .... air conditioning . Cheers , Alex

  1. The red IH is a KB series built from 1947-49. The one with the missing grille is a Ford. About a 1940-41.
