The only official redo of it by International Harvester occurred in 1973. Essentially the new logo was a slightly stylized version of the 1945 basic design.
After a merger of several companies that created International Harvester in 1902, the logo on the left was adopted as the core corporate logo. It had the letters "I" and "H" inside the letter "C," and all three letters were capitalized and had serifs. The words "International" and "Harvester" were printed inside their respective letters.
