Default 1937 IHC D-300 coe

You can go your entire life and never see a D300. The conventional version (D30) of this truck is pretty common, though. I’ve owned three or so. But the COE version is like seeing a rainbow unicorn.
Central CA spits out wonderfully preserved original trucks. This one was exceptional to begin with. I wish I could say I own it but I don’t. I get to help a little, though.

Some more pictures...
As the story goes, a Central CA Japanese farming family owned it since new and used it pretty recently. However, farm season for a truck can be pretty short and so it was probably in a shed 10 months out of the year.
To make matters more interesting, evidently this family was one of the few Japanese families that wasn’t relocated during WWII because their last name isn’t Japanese. And so, they were able to retain their property and vehicles.

IHC HD flathead six (Willys designed it) with Zenith SIDE DRAFT carburetor! That carb is worth almost as much as the truck.
Just crazy rare stuff.

Thanks, I think I have seen one at a show, but it could have been a later model. They are rare indeed.

Pretty Kool !

Interesting how it has a Suicide Door on the Right Side and Conventional Opening Door on the Left.

Yes. And the windshield looks like stock D Series until you place your D series frame up there and find out D300 is about 20% taller. Just so strange.
