1998 International Box Truck 24' - $9500 (Crab Orchard)


condition: good
make / manufacturer: International

98 International box / straight truck. A little over 200k miles and running great.

I bought this truck in Seattle, WA specifically to make the trip to my new home in Tennessee. I loaded it up, including carrying three motorcycles in the back, and drove it straight through without a single problem. The truck ran well the whole way. It's certainly not a speed-wagon, top speed on the freeway is between 65 and 70 with a good tailwind, but it pulled over the Cascade and Rocky mountains.

This truck has a 24000 pound GVWR, so no CDL is required, and no weigh-station stops are necessary. It has an E-Track system which I used to install two levels of shelves using 2x6's and 3/4" plywood to make it easier to fully load the truck. The engine is the very-reliable 7.3L turbo-charged diesel used in a gazillion school buses, so parts are readily available if you ever need any. The transmission is automatic.

Tires are in very good condition and the brakes work properly, and the batteries hold a charge. The truck is old, so it's not perfect, but overall it's in good shape. It was originally owned by the Frito Lay distributor in Las Vegas, so it was fleet maintained before I bought it. I've only used it for the single cross-country trip and a few trips back and forth to the storage unit I was using. I no longer need it, though, so offering it up for sale.

I took it to a truck mechanic in Washington before the trip, and the only problems found were minor stuff like a burnt out light. The truck has a lift gate, which is worth its weight in gold. The AC isn't working, but I suspect it simply needs to be charged.
