RESTORATION

We have put together a collection of photos of the 1938 International D15 Tow Vehicle and 1936 Curtiss Aerocar Travel Trailer displaying the restoration process from start to finish. Both the tow vehicle and the trailer were in deplorable condition to begin with so the monumental task of restoration was completed in two stages.

Before Restoration
After Restoration

The tow vehicle was to be tackled first, and so, after many months of painstaking reconstruction, the old International was once again a sight to behold. The body sheeting had been carefully removed, the wooden framework almost totally reconstructed and the body panels once again refitted. Many body parts and fittings that were either broken or missing had to be fabricated from scratch.

After Restoration

Work was commenced in 1992 on the rebuild of the trailer unit to restore it to its original splendor. To make the unit more functional by today’s standards, some interior items have been replaced by more modern day fixtures.

This unique exhibit is always a crowd pleaser when it makes appearances on the show circuit. If you have any stories or photos to share about this interesting unit, please contact us.
