1934 International Harvester 1 1/2 ton B3
A lover of old trucks found this model in Cathlamet, Washington in the fall of 1999. It is a 1934 International which had been in a barn in the Cathlamet area for many years. It is reported that the truck was used in the construction of Hoover Dam in the late 1930's, and in 1942 was conscripted by the Federal Government in the war effort and was used as a survey vehicle in Washington. It was used then as a camper all over Washington and was equipped with 4 large gas tanks. Later on in the 1970's a Mr. Champ bought it for transportation. It still had survey maps dating back to 1942 in some interior compartments when it last changed hands in 1999.
