1961 International Harvester Metro Van
Metro Van all steel bodies, designed by Raymond Loewy of Studebaker & Coke bottle fame, were built by the Metropolitan Body Company, Bridgeport, CT. International Harvester bought the company in 1948. Production stopped in 1975. Our Metro Van is known as a “Shorty” due to the shorter body design.
Our Metro Van served in the US Air Force in Arizona from 1961 thru 1965 & then released to the public for sale.
