  1. Paul this is posted on the bottom of a 3 year old thread so most will not be looking at it. Start a NEW thread in this forum and you will get some notice. Hemi Dude almost always responds and is very savvy about these cars. Or send him a private message
  2. There is a very active forum for the TC in the Chrysler section below this main forum. This topic is discussed there regularly by some very dedicated TC people. Please check it out and you will find your answer. Chrysler's TC by Maserati - Antique Automobile Club of America - Discussion Forums (aaca.org)
  3. Now that is a lot of truck. It looks like the body in good condition. If the engine is free, i would start by removing the spark plugs and put some oil in each cylinder and rotate the engine by hand to get the oil in vital places before trying to start it. Change all the fluids and filters, check hoses and lines, service the brakes and inspect the wiring. Also the tires will not be good to use after this time. Take your time and think each step thru and you can have a running truck.
  4. Need more info on what is needed to get her running. Bad engine or tranny, brake problems, front end, rust. Give us something to work with and we will try to help you. That will make a great ride when itiis on the road.
  5. I had one when in high school and ran a large newspaper route with it for a couple of years because it was cheap to operate. Had no problems with it and probably a good thing because I had the only one in West Texas at the time as far as I know. And as a teen I did not show it any mercy. Good car.
  6. ArticiferTom offered you some great advice. And your location will be very helpful in finding people locally who may help This forum goes all over the world so local help in things you want to have repaired needs to be narrowed down a lot. Someone in Europe would not be too helpful if you are in Texas for example. I agree the restoration section can point to you to parts and supplies that can be obtained from a distance, and you may find people with knowledge you can use. Good luck and keep us posted on your progress on your great truck.
  7. The size seems to point to an industrial use to me.
  8. I had a 72 Travelall for a couple of years. It was tough as nails and the room inside it was huge. No problems with it and our IH dealer had good access to parts for it and the pickups in the mid 80's. We lived in a small farming community and lots of farmers had IH pickups and trucks because they were very durable, but they were mostly for work because of being heavy duty they were not for the average pickup owner. I think the reason so few seem to have survived is that they were purchased to work hard and usually used up before being traded in or most likely just parked in the farmers land a
  9. Really bad here in central Florida. About 60F but will warm up to the mid 70's later. Since this forum is viewed all over the world, it would be great if you would tell the area you live. The temp would have a lot more meaning if the general area was known.
  10. Someone may come up with a better identity, but I believe it is a 1940 Buick
  11. I believe Torino is the only one with the center emblem. Fairlane was open all the way across
  12. What size is it? Looks more like a center cap than hubcap but nothing to indicate masurments.
  13. Beautiful car. t could come live with me anytime.
  14. Vintage Pickup Truck Antique and Classic Truck Parts and International Pickup & Travelall Parts.com may be able to help.
  15. Lots of good info here. Hope you find what you need. http://oldihc.org/phpBB3/index.php Sounds like you have a interesting truck. Keep us posted, and we always like pictures.
  16. Seen on the back of a black Jeep wrangler "I AM THE BLACK JEEP OF THE FAMILY'
  17. That is a very interesting truck. Please keep checking in here when you can and also share any info or pics you find. I think you are in the right track.
  18. Fire truck is a possibility. Do you have a picture of the back of the cab? It is hard to tell from the pic. but it looks like it may not be the standard way they were built. That would be a clue possibly.
  19. I forgot about that. I think you are correct. Good work!
  20. My doctor told me I need to watch my tummy, so I grew it out where I can see it well.
  21. Looks like a solid truck. What kind of info are you looking for? The L 170 shown a GVW of 16,000lb. Yours shows 19,000 lb so it is made to haul a larger load than the 170. I do not know what the difference is but I would guess supension. There were lots of models of the 170 series made as International made many configurations for many purposes. It is also Canadian so rhat may make a difference also. It should be a 1949 to 1951 It shows to have the 269 engine which was the larger of the engines offered
  22. Looks like a solid truck. What kind of info are you looking for?
  23. What a beautiful truck. Not too many here are very knowledgeable about that size but you may find some help here. OldIHC • Index page Also, please keep us informed and good luck
  24. Congratulations on your 35. That will be an interesting ride. Please post some pictures when you can and details on condition and your plans for it. Most people on here will suggest you rebuild the original suspension. It was designed for your vehicle and unless you plan to use it for other things than it was built for, it will work like it was designed to. Originality is the main goal of most people on these boards. Good luck on your project.
