International has a long history of building rugged and dependable trucks. In the early 1960s, they would develop an all-new range of medium-duty trucks ideally suited to the needs of farmers, construction companies, or anyone needing a sturdy truck to get the job done. The optional four-wheel drive system would turn this truck into a proper go-anywhere vehicle, perfect for when the going gets tough, ideally suited for fire crews needing to go out in the bush to control wildfires. Today these trucks are still workhorses ready to put in a hard day's work wherever it may be.
