One from Israel, local heavy transport specialist Taavura's modified M523E2 (there's a DD V8-92T under that Transtar hood) at work. German MAN also has US made engines by the way, Cummins KTs fitted after the original V10 blew up.

I'm an International guy and I think it looks like a Steven King nightmare. The 4300 and the 9300,9670,9700 and 9800 were solid trucks. Like all there was room for improvement (door lock come to mind) but would give years of service with a little care. Not flashy, nor had all the bling of other makes, but a solid workhorse. IHC got away from that when they courted the fleet market and hired Jack Hebe.

It was supposed to modeled off the D series of the late 30's, They would have done better to model off the C series of the early 30's or the K series in my opinion, both were better looking, and I think the C was the best.



I agree with Geoff. 
Harvester could have better spent their money fixing the doors on the 4300 so the wind didn't blow thru them like an ill fitting barn door.

I've seen a couple with a much more conservative paint and accessory scheme that looked a lot better than the one pictured.
International sure went out on a limb with that throwback. Kinda like their all EGR emissions system a la Volkswagen.

Can't offend me.  I called them uglier than home-made sin several years ago.

I hope I don't offend someone again, but my cents worth is these have got to be the "cheesiest" things to ever come out. I wonder how much some so-called "consultant" got paid to come up with this.http://forums.justoldtrucks.com/uploads/images/836ed2e1-cfe5-4723-8d2c-1517.jpg


I agree. Harvester finally figured out how to make a truck uglier than the 1950 L model,
Slim  :P

Farmal, had to do something to spruce up their line its too bad they couldn't have built a cab to go with the hood instead of using a cheapo off the line unit.
