The cost of the chassis was $10,912. The International was to be delivered to Brumbaugh Body Co. in Altoona to have the tank and pump from the old tank truck installed. Thirty two members attended the meeting.

That was a $10,000 well spent.This was a 2010A with a crash box for a transmission. unless you were a double or triple clutcher you had some problems driving this. I loved driving this unit.
