Purchased new by King's Motor Cartage, this 1926 INTERNATIONAL hauled goods for British Ropes, a heavy cable manufacturer in Vancouver. In 1937, the INTERNATIONAL's box was damaged passing under Georgia Street Viaduct. The truck was put into storage until the mid-forties when it was repaired and painted Lincoln green.
The INTERNATIONAL became known as the "ghost" because it had no identifying marks. It was used as a spare vehicle, circulating among King's companies to break in new drivers. Retired in 1953, the INTERNATIONAL retains its original motor and power train and currently carries a box from Alexander Murray Company.
