About IH

Robert P. Barnes INC. started in 1952 by Robert P. Barnes Senior in West Chester, PA, a full service IH Truck and Scout Dealership. After IH Evolved into Navistar in the 1980’s the Barnes family continued to provide service and parts support for customers with IH Trucks, Scouts and IH Light Line vehicles.

In 2010 the family business was taken over by Brendan, Roberts grandson and Barnes International Trucks was formed and moved from West Chester, PA to Cochranville, PA. Brendan started with a two bay garage in his parents back yard. Specializing in only International Scouts and Pickups, he offers vehicle parts, sales and service and is a Scout Light Line dealer.

In 2015 Barnes International Trucks had outgrown Brendan’s parents garage. We began to build a new 10,000 sqft shop and as of October 1, 2016 Barnes International Trucks will take on a new name of and we will offer a full online store to better serve our customers. Same family business, same service but a new name and location.
