I've come across an interesting opportunity: an abandoned International that I have the option to run away with if I so choose. But first I need to assess whether the platform is worth investing in.
I would really appreciate some advice towards what I should be looking for when I get to inspect it in person 2 weeks from now. I'm a mechanical engineer with reasonable experience with cars and gas engines, so I have a decent eye for engines and chassis health, but I know that there is a massive knowledge base I'm missing when it comes to skoolies! (You could say I know that I don't know...) So any tips for things I could miss would be great! Also, I would love some help narrowing down the model, year and engine so I can do more refined research beforehand.
So far all the information I have is:
A single picture: http://i.imgur.com/suvd28A.jpg
That it was lived in for 3+ years
That it is currently not running, but was running less than 1 year ago, around when it was abandoned in place.
Thanks for you help!
