    Not a '56 unless the grille has been changed, the "bucktooth" grille debuted in 1957.

    And that style of turn signals came around 58-59.

    Pretty cool truck, though. I like the color, too.

    '57-59 didn't have full instrumentation.

    I saw this truck parked somewhere in New England a few years back. Can't forget that color. It looked OK then. Could be the perfect thing to haul stuff to the dump, pick up landscaping materials, or get lumber from Home Depot. Hmmm, adding one more vehicle to my antique car insurance is pretty cheap... Please, someone stop me before I drag home another one!

    Oh, I did find a photo I took of that truck. My computer says it was 2003. How time does fly!

    Just think, with this truck you could start Gary's lawn and yard service.

    If he added Jane's name to it he could call it "Gary and Jane's PREMIUM lawn and yard service" and charge extra.

    The '61 one ton below has been for sale for a year or more with no takers (https://sanantonio.craigslist.org/cto/6117763322.html)- these trucks were built as work trucks and make for a dedicated owner to go to any shows that are any distance.

    In response to '62champ's post, the link given is now too old to retrieve anything, in case anyone was interested in looking. I just went to Craigslist's San Antonio page and found this currently active link:
    https://sanantonio.craigslist.org/cto/6117763322.html
    Price asked for is $5950.

    A word of caution on antique vehicle insurance and Home Depot runs. Check your policy carefully to see if you are covered outside of collector events or for hauling items. J.C. Taylor once tried to deny adding a 3E40 flatbed to my policy because the picture I sent them had an extra frame, transmission and wheels in the bed. When I showed them that I owned a modern day International rollback and International flatbed for hauling they agreed to add it to my policy.

    The dash cluster, curved front bumper, and the lack of door chrome confirm it as 1956 2E model. The grille and parking lights are from a 1959 or later.

    Thanks for confirming its identity, Skip. I actually contacted the seller via Craigslist to ask about it (yeah, right, I need another truck), and asked for interior and engine compartment photos; I got one of each. I asked for a shot of the dataplate, and although the seller sent it, it's unreadable due to the scratching/scraping/sanding off of the blue paint, and thus the black paint on the plate that lets the info details show through! I was hoping for model number, and especially the wheelbase. I can only keep so much stuff at my place.

    Six-lug wheels suggest a one-ton, model 2E13. Wheelbase would be 131".
