International Harvester has achieved quite a following among classic car and truck lovers over the last few years, with the Scout and Scout II leading the way. But one thing you don''t see every day is a Travelall -- International''s answer to the Chevrolet Suburban. Similar in size to its bowtied competitor, the Travelall has the advantage of four doors instead of the Suburban''s three.
This Travelall is highly optioned with V8, automatic transmission, four-wheel drive, power steering, power brakes and factory a/c. It has been repainted to a high standard in correct Alpine White; all panels are straight with good gaps and the wood-grain applique down the sides is nearly perfect. Grille, bumpers, chrome, trim glass and mirrors are excellent. The underside is solid and dry, with absolutely no rust in the floor pans, rockers, door bottoms or jambs. Practically new Firestone tires on alloy wheels.
The interior is Sage Green and appears to be mostly original -- the dash, steering wheel, door panels, headliner, carpet, seat upholstery and seat belts are all very well preserved. No holes, tears or stains on any surface -- truly remarkable given this truck''s age. All gauges, switches and indicators work as they should, and there is a modern stereo with CD player and aux input mounted in the dash.
Under the hood is International''s robust 345 cubic inch V8 mated to an automatic gearbox; the engine starts and runs great, and the transmission shifts are sure and smooth. Power steering, power brakes and a/c function just as they should. The engine compartment is super clean, just like the rest of the truck. Owing to the unusually good condition, we believe the mileage, at just under 100,000, to be correct. There''s a trailer hitch receiver and trailer light connector below the rear bumper -- with those features and four-wheel drive, this would make a capable boat hauler.
With all of the power options and a/c, this Travelall offers the opportunity to drive something vintage without sacrificing comfort. Give us a call at 404-692-5250 for more information.
