1975 IHC Half Ton 200 345 from North America
Every manufacturer should build to IHC's specifications
It's totally rusted out. (but if I lived in TX or CA, it would be perfect)
The bedsides flap in the wind like flags. (from the rust)
The driver-side gas tank hose leaks between the cap and the tank. (30 year old rubber?)
Fires up like new, every time.
Massive towing power. I can't find anything big enough to bog it down (which is good).
Traded in my 1998 Ford Ranger because I heard that IHCs are more reliable. Yes, they are. I lost the convenience of flipping a switch to get into 4WD, but I gained the reliability of manual hubs.
Drinks gas like college kids drink beer. Averaging about 10-12 MPG.
Bounces and shakes down the highway when the bed is empty. When loaded it's smooth.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
