1956 International R180, black diamond petrol engine, 5 speed gearbox

You load 16 tons and what do you get? This is a 1956 International R180, black diamond petrol engine, 5 speed gearbox and 2 speed diff, did a lot of swapping cogs going through the hills, not like the trucks today with their big engines. This was the most enjoyable truck I ever drove, it would sit up and dance for you. Carting copper concentrate ore from central Australia to the North coast for shipment to Japan, I carried one ton of fuel in five 44 imperial gallon drums, three behind the cab and one each slung either side of the chassis, great loading, no ropes or tarps.
