Lot details

Registration No: WL54 WBT
Chassis No: 1HTWBAALX5J051173
MOT: June 2025

  • The ‘world’s biggest production Pickup’ (Motortrend)
  • Current ownership since 2017 and less than 16,000 miles
  • Believed to be the only International CXT in the country
  • Immense fun and extremely capable!

Produced by Navistar International, the International CXT or ‘Commercial Extreme Truck’ was manufactured between 2004 to 2008 and boasts some of the most impressive dimensions of any pick-up truck ever manufactured, dwarfing all other pick-ups, with the only larger being the Mercedes-Benz Unimog which weighing over 7.5-tonnes, is undoubtedly a full truck, rather than pick-up. A beast of a machine, with a reinforced chassis underneath the body, it can carry heavy loads, and manage to tow astonishing weights of over 40,000 pounds. The CXT contains a 466cu in (7.6 L) DT466 straight-six DT466 turbocharged engine that grants it 220hp, 540 lbs/ft of torque. Marketing the truck as a dual-purpose vehicle when new, Navistar promoted its towing and hauling capabilities, and the CXTs abilities for use as a promotional vehicle, essentially as a large "rolling billboard". Offered in two-door extended cab and four-door crew cab variants, the interior trim and features of the CXT rivalled the highest-trim highway trucks. To match smaller pickup trucks, the CXT included leather seats, wood trim, and full carpeting; with interior options also including a rear-seat television screen (with DVD player), CD audio systems, and a fold-out rear seat (into a bed) – all of which this example includes.

Manufactured new in 2005, the CXT offered was built and supplied new in the United States of America and resided there for the first ten years of its life. Finished in Yellow paintwork with a full Grey leather interior upholstery and Brown carpeting, this example has been specified with a rear TV screen, a DVD entertainment system, premium hi-fi, airhorn, cruise control, fold our rear bed, and towing package. Utilising the five-speed Allison automatic transmission, the Pickup was imported into the United Kingdom in 2015, before being acquired by the vendor in January 2017 and has since been part of his private collection. Used for several proms and steam rallies, the vendor informs that the CXT (unsurprisingly!) attracts lots of attention wherever it goes! Offered now having covered less than 16,000 miles, the International is believed to be the only International CXT in the country. Offered with a current V5C document and a selection of MOT certificates (with only one advisory for a dust cover across all its UK MOTs), the CXT is supplied with a no advisory MOT certificate until June 2025 and will be driven some 115 miles to the sale. Incredibly impressive, notably nice condition, and a whole load of fun, this outrageous pick-up would be a fantastic statement piece of anyone's collection, or could easily be put to work!
