IHC stands for International Harvester Company, a 1902 merger between International Harvester and McCormick, and for more than a century the company was a world leading producer of farm machinery and trucks. In 1950 IHC launched the 'all' new L-Series truck complete with a one-piece windshield (unusual then) and a single-choice 220 cubic-inch 6-cylinder overhead valve motor with 101 horsepower. And sales focused on the bare chassis, and chassis and cab, although one could order a woodie station wagon, Metro van, milk and bakery trucks, and a small school bus. The L-120 featured a 3/4-ton, 127-inch chassis, just perfect for a Hercules-Campbell Body Company of Tarrytown, New York, custom school bus body like this one.
