1925 International Water Tanker


Engine Type:
4-Cylinder 283 Cubic Inch, 4¼-Inch Bore With 5-Inch Stroke

Truck Information:
In 1925 International produced 15,500 trucks and of those, around 20% were Model 63s. This 1925 International Model 63 Water Tanker was owned by the city of Menominee, Wisconsin; they used it as a street washing truck up until 1957. At the time this truck was built there were still horses around and streets needed to be washed. Interestingly, it doesn’t have a pump. It just relies on the water flow out of the truck. There are two levers in the cab: one for the right nozzle and one for the left. The driver just opened a valve, and the water spray washed the street. The water tank holds 750 gallons. Its engine has a Lycoming design, which uses ball bearing on the crankshaft and is very unusual.
