A Loadstar at rest

The International Loadstar is a series of trucks that were produced by International Harvester from 1962 to 1978. The first product line of the company developed specifically as a medium-duty truck, the Loadstar was slotted between C-Line pickup trucks and the heavy-duty R-series. This 1972-78 model Loadstar 1600 was found living under a lean-to in an abandoned rural factory in eastern North Carolina, its useful life probably over.
