1946 International Pickup


From Alex Emond: "Off the top of my head I don't recognize the make. Mid - 40's, again guessing.
Somebody did some good work here. This is in Ponteix , Saskatchewan. but those are Alberta plates.
I think that's a low luster top coat and not just black primer. This is the finished ride."
AL: We made an educated guess at date and make. Alex found another some years back also in Saskatchewan that we called a '46 then, but was likely later.
