1975 International Travelall Harvester 150
One of the most interesting facts about the IH company is when and
how it came into existence. J.P. Morgan pulled a total of five
companies together. These manufacturers were successful in the
agricultural and machine products industries. Together they formed
International Harvester (IH) in 1902. The company built trucks and
pickups from 1907 to 1975. They designated the first trucks to roll
off the line as the Model A Wagon but nicknamed them the Auto
Buggy. Packing a potent 15hp engine with high ground clearance, the
truck garnered favorable reviews. It became the perfect vehicle for
navigating the poor road conditions common at the time.
Let's pony up the latest offering from the last year these Classic
Beauties were produced, that being 1975. This Travelall 150 is an
original, with loads of options and conveniences, new paint,
original glass, and a good runner to boot. A gem if you will, and
all original well-preserved interior is icing on the cake.
Stripped to bare metal, any rust remediated, then painted in its
original factory color of gold, although it has a persistent green
hue to it, which is pure 1970's color. (Think Avocado Appliances?)
With its side trim, which is a custom exterior package option and
is reminiscent of a faux panel, and surrounding remaining trim as
accenting pieces, all appear in good condition with some pitting
and slight corrosion. A shiny roof rack, tow package, tinted glass,
electric rear window which functions flawlessly, and 4-wheel snow
tires topped with standard IH wheel covers, this is a fab
All original, and mostly flawless save for a few marks here and
there, but you'll have to look closely. Sage vinyl, a padded,
buttoned door panel motif, and clean door panels are seen upon
entering this mid 70's world. The custom trim interior package
includes seats in the form of 2 front buckets, and a rear bench.
These are covered in what can only be described as a glossy curly
cue pattern with a slightly darker matte background, buttoned, for
the inserts, and smooth vinyl bolsters. The original carpet is very
clean considering its age and is amazingly not faded. Original
factory air which blows cold, original radio and clock, still
functioning beautifully, and a factory installed trailer brake are
there as well. Looking to the front we see the original dash, with
all working and lighted instruments. Headliner is an off white
tight with a few areas of soiling but mostly unremarkable, and
below in the cargo area is a speckle patterned rubber mat, and
padded vinyl interior wheel well and side panel coverings, all
The original 392ci V8, topped with an original Thermoquad 4-barrel
carburetor, and backed by an A727 Torqueflite 3-speed automatic
transmission. The transmission has its own cooler and noted is a
Dana rear with 3.73 gears.
A few spotty areas of surface rust, but mostly rustproofed covered
steel, straight, and structurally sound. New shocks and shiny
mufflers are noted in this overall clean environment.
Last year of production, and it is well optioned, fully
operational, a smooth runner, and comfortable and functional
interior, this could be a great woods, cabin or vacation home
knockabout vehicle, and the way it has been preserved and taken
care of, has plenty of life left in her. All manuals and original
line sheet will come along with it after the purchase. A "gold"
nugget of early SUV-ing."
