World’s Biggest Production Pick-up Truck Roars to Auction

4,314

If you’re shy and retiring, then this pick-up—said to be the world’s most significant production pick-up—is definitely not for you. But if you enjoy plenty of attention and have a smaller vehicle for those runs to the supermarket or school gates, then this International CXT pick-up could be just for you.

Heading to H&H Classic’s auction at the Imperial War Museum, Duxford, on 19th June, the striking and immensely fun pick-up is estimated to fetch between £40,000 – £50,000.

Big in dimensions and big on torque, the CXT offers the fixtures and fittings found in the plushest modern pick-ups but scales up the size. Its four-door, crew-cab set-up means plenty of space for friends and family, while the pick-up bed means most loads are easily accommodated.

While its dimensions are almost on par with those of an actual Stateside highway hauler, inside, it features leather seats, wood trim, feet-cosseting carpet, a rear-seat television (with DVD player), sound systems, and a fold-out rear seat that converts to a bed.

A big pickup needs a big engine: in this case, a 7.6-litre turbocharged six-cylinder unit with a five-speed automatic transmission, making it ideal for towing. Barely run-in, it has covered less than 16,000 miles from new.

First imported into the UK in 2015, it has been in the current vendor’s private collection since 2017. It was used for several proms and steam rallies, attracting considerable attention.

Fun seekers and collectors looking to inspect the CXT can do so at the Imperial War Museum, Duxford, from midday on Tuesday, June 18th. The pick-up will go under the hammer at 1 p.m. on the following day, and those wishing to bid on this fabulous machine can do so in person, online, by telephone, or by leaving a commission bid.
