I stopped at a sale last summer in Spokane Valley, WA and the prices were so great I ended up making a pile next to the cash box and going back for a second look. On my second tour around the sale I found this pair of International Hub Caps. I paid a dollar for them and hoped there might be an old International truck out there needing them. I got on Ebay when I got home and found out these are very rare and hard to find – especially in this condition. They were most likely used on an International truck dating between 1940 – 1957. Most are missing the red detail paint and are rusted through. This pair features their original red trim and are still in solid condition. While researching I found out that restoring International trucks is a big deal and ‘original‘ parts add big time to the value. I sure hope the guy who is restoring his cherished International finds these hotties on my Ebay!
