For the diehard collectors garage. Very cool!

I have a vintage fridge one of those short rounded fridge's made by International Harvester. I thought they only made tractors. I would thing this would be a good collectible for that person who collectsinternational Harvester or tractor stuff
Make me an offer and yes it works. Would make a good beer meister

IHC also made A/C units and all sorts of appliances.  It was one way for them to branch out, and I think it was a mistake in one way, since it was doing something they knew nothing about.  The appliances they made were well built, though.

My grandmother, then my brother had a chest type freezer branded IH.  Heaviest freezer I ever had a hold of & the one we had to move the most often!  It was said to be insulated with tar paper.  ~~  Lowell

A friend of mine had one given to him, but it was in a basement. HOLY COW, I thought I was in good shape until that.

My Dad has my Great Grandmas IH refrigerator in the barn.  Does not currently work, though.  IH made everything, including guns.  They contracted to build M1 Garands during WWII.  They were the lowest volume manufacturer of the M1, IH branded ones command top dollar.

Have never seen one of those. A refridgeration tech may be able to repair it or possibly upgrade it to a more modern system but it wouldn't be cheap.

I want to find an old fridge like that for my garage and just put stuff in it. No need to run an inefficient mule like that, but makes for a great parts cabinet and looks cool in the garage.
