This is the kind of vehicle that gets real truck people excited.
This 1974 International 200 Camper Special is a rare and capable
4x4 that has been given terrific investments to remain both capable
and attractive. It makes for the kind of truck that you seldom see,
but pickup fans never forget.
International Harvester trucks get extra respect. After all, while
some pickups represent the most rugged part of a manufacturer's
lineup, IH mostly made industrial-grade equipment. So there just
seems to be an added robustness and usefulness stamped right into
the sheet metal. And speaking of the body, it looks quite nice for
a pickup that's rapidly approaching the half-century mark. It also
helps that this has been given good investments along the way. The
white paint is a later upgrade. It's not too fancy to get to work,
but there's a nice shine that goes well with the bright grille and
front bumper. The full-length side trim is a thoughtful detail
where the black with a hint of red coordinates with everything from
the IH badging to the full liner paint in the useful long bed.
There are plenty more upgrades that add both flair and function.
The upgraded headlights light the way better; the diamond plate
toolbox is both handy and bright; and the rear step bumper helps
protect the tow hitch. We particularly like how the upgraded wheels
keep the 8-lug design of this extra-duty 200 model and they also
let you fit a nice set of modern tires.
The interior gives you plenty of classic style with the sliding
rear window, a full bench seat, and robust rubber floor covering.
But the full appeal is about the updates. There are some nice
upgrades for comfort, like the AM/FM/CD stereo with Bluetooth, cup
holders, and provisions for air conditioning (it will need
servicing to blow cold again.) Plus, you have a solid driver's
setup with an upgraded sports steering wheel, a tilt column, and a
full set of AutoMeter readouts - including a large speedo and
When you open the hood, the bright and tidy style and bow tie valve
covers instantly announce this has an upgrade. A motor like Chevy's
350 cubic-inch V8 has the same robust reputation as IH machinery,
and so it's a worthy addition. And this even has later features
like center-bolt valve covers and a serpentine belt system. There
are even nice supporting components everywhere from the aluminum
radiator to the auxiliary fuel tank in the bed. This V8 inhales
deeper with a Holley four-barrel carburetor, and it exhales with
added power and rumble as headers feed the dual exhaust. Power
steering, power brakes, and front discs make for an easy driver. We
even have $11k in receipts over the last couple of years that
document a nice investment in keeping this a solid driver,
including a new TH400 three-speed automatic transmission. And this
is a true 4x4 with a two-speed transfer case to make sure that this
sharp-looking 200 pickup can uphold the versatile reputation of
The sale comes complete with good paperwork like the factory
buildsheet, owner's manual, and maintenance records. There are very
few 200s remaining out there. So if you're looking for a distinct
classic pickup that looks great while getting the job done, you
know you need this IH. Call today!!!
