This truck is like a tank. It’s the hardiest vehicle I’ve ridden in. It’s our 1964 CL1100 Harvester International pickup.
I’ve been thinking of putting one in a painting. I’ve used other vintage vehicles in some of my paintings and this truck has been calling me.
This truck originally belonged to my late husband, Peter. The first time I rode in it I felt like I was in a tank because it’s so sturdy! It has 4 wheel drive and some special gears that make it jug, jug, jug a long if you want to go through tough, rugged territory. It’s an amazing vehicle!
It had a few mechanical problems over the years but last year Greg got it running! Yay!
We’ve had fun taking it to the beach. Belle likes riding in the back.
I like riding in the front.
I’m inspired by it’s funkiness.
And it’s lines.
I like the shape of the front end.
I took a bunch of photos to refer to. I’m going to do some sketches from some of them.
