Those look a lot like International Harvester trucks. I agree with Minoltanut but if the engine and transmission are servicable and the tires ok, that might be a good price.

White Motor Corporation bought REO in 1957 and then bought Diamond T in 1958. In 1960 White Motor Corporation moved Diamond T to Lansing, MI where the REO's and Diamond Ts and some model White Trucks came off the line.
