The International Harvester Company was the result of Cyrus McCormick, the same individual responsible for the McCormick Harvesting Company and the 1831 self-raking reaper. In 1847, McCormick moved to Chicago and became part of a consolidation of reaping machinery manufacturers. The result of this union was the International Harvester Company in 1902. Four years later they were producing gasoline-engined tractors followed by high-wheel buggy-type automobiles in 1907. They were simple, efficient, and utilitarian.

By 1909 they were producing the Auto Wagons which was basically an early version of a truck and continued the buggy-type concept. By 1912 the Auto Wagons could be purchased with either air or water cooling.

This 1914 International Model AW 9-Passenger High-Wheel Surrey was offered for sale at the Vintage Motor Cars sale at Hershey, PA presented by RM Auctions. It was estimated to sell for $5,000 - $10,000. It was offered without reserve with bidding reaching $27,500 including buyer's premium. The lot was sold.

It is equipped with a horizontally-opposed twin-cylinder L-head engine that produces 20 horsepower. There is a two-speed planetary transmission and two-wheel mechanical brakes. It is a complete vehicle, painted in green paint which has faded over time. The same applies to the red chassis and wheels.

After 1911, International Harvester no longer offered passenger vehicles. However, their light commercial vehicles could easily be converted by adding seats on the cargo bed. This example has two extra bench seats which transforms it into a nine-passenger open bus. There are 39-inch wheels in the front and 41-inches in the rear.
