Many photographs illustrate color schemes and custom paint jobs. Some of the photographs may have been used for advertising purposes. The featured trucks include heavy duty, medium duty, and light duty models. Prototype models include vans and jeeps. Some of the iconic product lines of the International Harvester Company are found in this collection, including IH Scout, Travelall, Transtar, Loadstar, and Paystar.
