Vanna Arives

Vanna - our new horse van.
She is an Imperatore Horese Van built on a 1970 International Loadstar. She has a 5.0l V8 gas engine with one piston which desperately needs a ring job. I drove her home trailing a large cloud of blue smoke every time I climbed a hill and used three quarts of oil in 15 miles.
Other than that, she is really cool.

"Loadstar? What the heck is a Loadstar?"

Caution - Horses

Yes, you really can squeeze three horses in there - four if they are reeeeeally freindly.

Hi there,
I couldn't see anyway to email you, so thought I'd post a comment and hope you see it. :) I'm currently looking at a used Impetore 6 horse van. It's a 1971 International Chassis. The box is in pretty good shape, however the truck isn't running right now due to a large oil leak. They want $3000 for it. I'm having a hard time finding similar vans to price compare. If you wouldn't mind emailing me at I'd love to know how your van is working out for you. Have you put a lot of money into fixing it? What was your purchase price. Or, if you don't want to share that, do you think $3000 seems like a good price? Any info would be appreciated so I can make a decision.

Thanks!! Shanan from Oregon
