1975 IHC Travelall Custom from North America - Comments

My name is Harold. I have a nice 74 Travelall, 401 cu. in. auto, 16/1/2 tires in rear. I love my Travelall. I guess I enjoy driving it compared to any other auto.

The big thing is I can't seem to find a big radiator for it. Does anyone out there have anyone I can get in touch with? I've had mine rebuilt three times, to no avail.

I have driven it daily. It has 90,000 miles on it. It's always ready to go.

I can always depend on it, so if anyone can help me, I sure would be grateful.

I own a 1974 3/4 ton model 210 Travelall for over 6 years. I wish I still had that truck. It was great for short off-track X trips. Had the largest engine - 396cu.inch V8 with the optional 5 speed manual transmission. It could pull anything.

Some problems that others also run into.

1. Overheating - with the largest radiator made it would still over heat.

2. And by far the one I and many others sold their trucks I>H>C> was the gas mileage. On a good day without any weight in the truck, it would get 6-8miles per gal. On a flat highway MAYBE 9-11 MPG. The only truck that came close to pulling power-off-road was my family's 1941 Dodge 6 city. Power wagon U.S.A.

I have seen a good clean cooling system do a fine job, without overheating, on a reasonably well tuned 345 CID V8 in a Model 200 Travelall running a 4.10 rear axle, and a manual 4 speed transmission, with a good thermostat, and even without the pressure cap sealed.

I wish I had a Travellall. I have fond memories of these, as we had one when I was very young.

Kind of a rarer, cooler Chevy Suburban.

My father also had a 1973 International 3/4 ton 4X4 pickup, what a tank of a workhorse, it was seriously like a tractor, could tow anything, and drive its way out of huge snowbanks and mud pits. I wish they were easier to find in my area, would love to own one!

My dad just gave me his 1975 Travelall with the 396 V8. I have many memories of throwing the baseball gear into the backseat and going to weekend games.

That truck's got a lot of history to it, plus they are tanks! Gonna camouflage it and put a new exhaust on.

Does anyone know how I could put a 3rd row seat in it? I know the late 70's had that option.
