1915 International Harvester Model F

1915 International Harvester Model F
Autowagon
The 1-Ton Model F was introduced in 1915 as a modern successor to the high-wheeled Autowagons IH had built up to that time. The truck featured an in-line 4-cylinder engine with 3 main bearings and a pressure lube system to the bearings. The radiator is located behind the engine for protection and visibility - and possibly aerodynamics. The rear axle is unusual in that the load is carried by a cast housing, but the axle shafts are external to the housing and the final drive reduction is obtained by ring gears inside the wheel hubs. The wheels are 36x3.5 in the front and 4inches in the rear. Pneumatic tires were $50 additional. Top speed was 17 mph.

This truck, along with similar Models H, G, and K, were built at the Akron, Ohio works and were replaced in 1921 by the 21, 31, and 41 Series of trucks. There were 10,644 Model F's built. A model F was the first truck to climb Pikes Peak on June 14th of 1916.

This example is on display at the National Automotive and Truck Museum of the United States located in Auburn, Indiana.
