We called those International trucks , " corn binders '. Headlights were always aimed high so a could see over the corn and hay while drivin out to feed the stock , My last one was a 1962 or 1963 .

I had a '62 corn binder! I loved that truck so much.


3/4 timing in a DIY van conversion. Backroads, mountains, boondocking, sometimes big cities for a change of pace.

I bought a brand new '72. I, even back then, knew how to use a screwdriver to aim the headlights.
The term "corn binder" had nothing to do with headlight aim, but was related to the fact "International Harvester" was mainly a agriculture equipment company.

Looks like the third one back is a late 50's Dodge. Can't make out what the 4th and 5th ones are.

That drive looks like it could really scramble your eggs.

Yep, I have several friends, my age and older, and they all refer, or referred, to IH as "Binders". Which I always assumed was meant as another name for a "reaper" or "binder".

Ed and I just drove west on parts of old Route 66, following the route his newly-married father took right after WWII, pulling a travel trailer from Michigan to California so he could learn about working with "plastics". That must have been one long trek....

We always called them Corn Binders. I had a 71 Travelall years ago. It was a tank.
Aiming your headlights high to drive through corn and hay fields at night to feed the stock? I never heard that one.
