Truck Information:
In 1951, International released its first cabover tractor available with a diesel engine, the LCD-405. Two years later, the truck was tweaked and renamed the RDC-405 before being renamed yet again as the DC-405 in 1956. Although only marketed for four years, the distinctive 405 cabovers are instantly recognizable among trucking enthusiasts. Originally purchased in Los Angeles, this RDC-405 spent much of its early life hauling livestock in California. Later, it was used in an oil field in Arizona. At some point it was purchased by a truck enthusiast from the oil field and taken to Nebraska, where it sat unused under a tarp for 13 years. Bill Glawe of Dana, IA rescued the truck after the previous owner retired. Glawe fully restored the truck and made it roadworthy again. In the process of restoration, he converted the truck to a 12-volt electrical system and retrofitted a 13-speed transmission. Glawe also added a Mercury sleeper and had the truck repainted. This truck is displayed at the Iowa 80 Trucking Museum but is on loan from Bill Glawe.
