Remember when ‘Emeryville’ was a truck & not just a place?

IH Emeryville

The City of Emeryville, Calif. today is home to among other companies, Pixar Animation Studios, the folks who created such mega-movies as Toy Story, Monsters Inc., Cars and Finding Nemo. But in an earlier life, Emeryville cranked out some slightly heavier products. Not movie dramas, but trucks made by the former International Harvester, in the days before it morphed into Navistar. In fact, some of the trucks built here, in particular the DCO-405s, were even called “Emeryvilles.” Here’s a video tribute to some of these vintage COEs.
