1921 International Harvester Model 101


Engine Type:
International Harvester 4-Cylinder

Transmission Type:
Brown-Lipe 4-Speed

Truck Information:
Based in Chicago, Illinois, the International Harvester company was a result of the merging of McCormick Harvesting Machine Company and Deering Harvester Company in 1902. Originally targeted to farmers, International Harvester started off solely manufacturing tractors. Then in 1909 they decided to make trucks as well. International Harvester 101 models were manufactured for only three years, from 1921-1923. This truck - Serial Number 704R - is believed to be the only one left in existence out of the limited amount produced. It would have cost $4,500 brand new. Weighing 6,800 pounds, the truck’s maximum payload is 10,000 pounds. Its frame measures eight inches in height and has seven cross members, making it the largest in International Harvester’s line of trucks. The previous owner of this truck was Curt Fisher of Mankato, MN. He purchased it at an estate auction in New Ross, IN. The truck had been restored 25 years prior, but Curt did some more restoration after he bought it. The Iowa 80 Trucking Museum purchased the truck in November of 2020.
