Shelby

Shelby Kirkham and her restored International truck

Shelby started assisting with restorations when she was just 9 years old, helping restore a 1959 International A-100 Golden Jubilee, 50-year Anniversary edition. At 15, with the help of her father George, they completed their fastest frame-off restoration to date – a 1960 B-100 International short box pickup. Just a couple months after her 16th birthday they completed the restoration.

Shelby started working for Old International Trucks in July 2011 as a parts technician. She now handles the digitizing of old advertisements, truck photos, and colour charts, along with managing the parts catalog and website.

As an active member of ATHS and IHCC, Shelby is helping preserve the history of The International Harvester Company along with the trucking industry.
