Four Door 4×4: 1967 International 1100 Travelette

Big trucks that are big projects require big money and big talent, but the results can be big satisfying.. or somethin’ like that.. This cool crew cab is an International 1100 Travelette 4×4 crew cab pickup and it can be found here on eBay in Rogue River, Oregon. There is an unmet $1,000 opening bid and a $7,200 buy it now price.

I think it’s safe to say that there is no latte holder in this truck. I would venture a guess that forearm and knuckle hair implants would be required to own a manly truck like this, which isn’t good news for ol’ stickboy (me). This is one tough truck. I-H basically turned a Travelall into a four-door pickup by lopping off the rear portion and they created a very desirable and very big pickup.

You can see that while it’s in somewhat rugged shape, ding-and-dent-wise, it doesn’t appear to have a lot of rust on it other than surface rust. The inside of the box looks well-used, to say the least. I wonder if this was a logging truck or something like that in Oregon. They say “Minor cab floor rust. Cowl has rust as well.”

The entire truck will need help. The I-H crew cab, or Travelette, like most modern pickups, has four doors and seating for six people if not more. I can’t imagine taking on a huge project vehicle like this, just the space that it would require alone would be overwhelming for me. It sure would be fun to own in working condition, though. The back seat area is empty but it looks like the seat is included to use for a pattern, or just cover the seat with a blanket and be done with it. Ok, I’d have it recovered.

The seller doesn’t say which V8 engine this is but I believe that it’s a 266 cubic-inch with that would have had 155 hp. They say that it’s “Not running. Condition unknown. Do not know when it last ran.” I’d like to hope that this truck will end up in good hands and it will at the very least be mechanically refurbished and used regularly.

    Here’s a great example of, what was the seller thinking? Got a bin price of $7,200, and getting interest for $1475, going up in increments of $25 dollars probably. Don’t get me wrong, these were great trucks, and who would have ever thought, these would take the place of cars someday, in a more refined form, of course. This one is too far gone for what they are asking, it’s not a modern 4×4, 4 door, pickup. Matter of fact, driving these will probably scare the heck out of someone not familiar with tube front axles that are stiffly sprung, 4:88 gears will insure a slow ride, brakes that are barely adequate, and gpm with all the hardware spinning. The bidders, I feel, are spot on with this one.

      There’s a better one on Ebay right now: 1966 International Harvester 1200C that is in better condition, and has a dump bed. They only want $8k. The crew-cabs don’t come up very often, but the $8k one is the better option, IMO.

    They say that it’s “Not running. Condition unknown. Do not know when it last ran.”…………………They know that they paid maybe 1500 bucks for it tops, did not ask any questions, loaded it on a trailer and now know that for 7200 bucks they will help the buyer unload it and put it on their trailer.

    What a tough looking truck…It’s what real trucks used to be before they got soft and heavily optioned like a Lincoln Town car. I’d love to see someone put this truck back into service. Definitely a cool truck that not too many folks own. I’d guess everyone on the road would leave a lot of room between them and this truck!

    Definitely been rode hard and put away wet. Well equipped for the day. I’d be tempted to take on a project like this one if the price was right. It’s an International so, while parts for the drive train might be fairly easy to source (yet expensive), you’re going to have a challenge getting some pieces for the body. I rather like these and I’ve driven a lot of leaf-sprung farm trucks so nothing surprises me on the road. I didn’t see anything on what axle ratio it has, but I imagine that it was fairly close to what was available on the competition. I know we had a ’67 Ford F-250 with 4.56 gears in it, that gave you 60 mph, but it was noisy. But boy could it pull! Later we had a Dodge W300 with 4.88s which still gave 60 mph but at 3500 rpm. Excellent for a 24 foot livestock trailer. I’m not sure what Binder used for a higher speed axle but I’m sure you could get around 4.10 which is a good universal ratio for a 3/4 ton. Never did like the 266 engine; the 304 was a better performer, while a 345 would get up and dangle. The latter two you’d have to source out because I don’t think you could get even a 304 in this truck in ’67. Good luck to the buyer.

      As for the gearing, it appears to have the IHC corporate rear axle with that distinctive tapered hub. The available ratios were 3.73, 4.10, 4.78, and 5.13. The 3.73 seems to be almost mythical. At least not very common, anyhow. The low 5.13 was more common to higher GVW trucks. However, the gearsets will all interchange between half, three-quarter, and one-ton models. The same basic axle was used across the line, just with different ends to accomodate different brake/wheel setups.

      Price seems… high. No way I’d go for this one. Not long ago someone might pay you to haul off an IHC in this condition. Now everyone thinks they’re made of gold. Recently saw a local ad for a 1956 IHC 4×4, every panel dented and rusty, craked glass, not running, brakes, interior and electrical shot. Listed for $8,000 – “Build your dream truck!!!” he said. Divide by ten, knock a few hundred off, and lets talk…

      I had a ’68 Travelall with a 392!

        Those 392 engines were a good, solid performer. My dad had one in his ’69 1200 Crew cab. No shortage of power but you could almost watch the fuel gauge needle drop. I remember Dad going to the local welding shop and having a road tank made. He had it in the bed of the truck, right under the tool box. It must have held 60 gallons of gas. Back then people didn’t worry about how much gas the truck used (at least on the farm); you worried about running out, so planned accordingly…

    When I was a kid, my family had a ’69 1200 Travelette 4×4. My dad said it was a ’68 titled as a ’69. Not sure if that’s true or not, but it did have the earlier body. Ours had a 304, automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes, and air conditioning, which, in 1969, made it a luxury truck. Back then, we weren’t “one of those families using a crew cab truck as a daily driver,” we were “THE family using a crew cab truck as a daily driver.”

    Dad loved to go for a ride in foul weather to flaunt the 4-wheel-drive. One particularly nasty evening, he said “let’s go to the mall,” and piled us into the truck. Off we went to the mall in an ice storm. After a few miles, he decided the storm was just not worth the risk, so he turned back. We lived on a very steep grade, and Dad had a patented method to get into the driveway when the roads were slick. He would put it in neutral, creep down the hill, then release the brake just above the driveway and coast in. This time, however, he missed, and the truck wound up spanning the road about 10 feet below the driveway after spinning 135 degrees. 9-year-old me panicked, jumped out of the truck on the high side, and disappeared. I fell immediately on the icy road and slid under the truck and all the way down the hill.

    Looks like the truck that was harrassing the Griswolds in Christmas Vacation.

    Late ’60’s to mid ’70’s were bad years for IH and it’s extremely conservative in-fighting management. I was selling IH trucks for a factory branch in the ’70’s, and there were some pretty POS coming from Chatham and San Leandro works. I could barely give away Scouts, Travelalls, and pickups.
    But about this truck – I hate flippers! Seller is a dreamer.

    What is this seller in Oregon Smoking. Well as P.T. Once said.. there is a fool born every minute, maybe he will find a buyer. Even if you do the work yourself you will end up adding another $10k to this to get it into respectable shape and you will have a truck that is not worth any more than $10k.

    well this is really strange. two vehicles in a row that i have had. i have a 2wd version of this truck, and i used to own the actual datsun in the post right after this. not one like it, but that very car. im not making this up. see pic of both of them together in my garage.

    my travelette is in much better shape than this one. a 67 1200 crew cab with 392 and 5 speed overdrive. i think ive posted it in a comment here before. it is indeed not a modern comfy truck, like others have said. solid front axle. very stiff springs. steering that wanders all over the place. but it can work hard and it sure looks good doing it.
