Debuting almost 30 years before Chevrolets Avalanche, International-Harvester employees accidentally created a four-door pickup truck in the early to mid-1970s. MotoeXotica is proud to present this true unicorn from the International Binder world, a 1974 International Wagonmaster -ton 4x4 Pickup. Only 2,000 or less of these were produced in 1973 and 1974 and less than 500 in 1974 alone and some Binder fans and other people initially mistake the Wagonmaster for a Travelette.

The 1974 Wagonmaster is extremely sought after by collectors because it is one of the rarest production International trucks ever produced! In fact, this Wagonmaster comes from Oklahoma where it was owned long term by two International collectors (Previous owner is the president of the SouthWest Scouts of Oklahoma Club). Less than 500 were produced in 1974 but very few of those 500 were optioned with the factory 4x4, 4 speed manual transmission and a 392 V8 such as this particular truck.

According to John Glancy of Scout Light Line and Super Scout Specialists, the Wagonmaster was an idea that came from line workers at the Springfield factory. Internationals August 21, 1972 announcement read, The Wagonmaster combines automobile-type styling and comfort with the durability and trailering capabilities of Internationals popular Travelall wagon. Its design features a five-foot pickup-type bed behind the roomy six-person passenger compartment.

As on of the last Wagonmaster Pickups built in Internationals Springfield, Ohio factory on June 11, 1974, this Wagonmaster has a dark green exterior that is in overall very good order with only minor blemishes visible at close range. Its bodywork is straight and has the hard to find emblems intact, the engine bay is extremely tidy, the battery appears new and the bumpers are in great condition. In addition, Dynamat has been installed in the floorboards, within the doors and in the headliner; the truck is reportedly very quiet during highway driving.

This Wagonmaster wears 265/75R16 tires at all four corners. Each tire surrounds a 8 lug chrome, vented wheel. All tires and wheels are in very good order.

Under the forward-hinged hood is a Comanche 392 CID V-8 engine with a four-barrel carburetor mated to a Borg-Warner four-speed manual transmission. This is a Wagonmaster 4x4 pickup truck with a two-speed New Process transfer case with a Dana 44 front axle and a full-float Dana 60 fear axle complete the four-wheel drive setup underneath. Driver convenience features include power steering and power brakes.

Inside, the interior is upgraded withrusset plaid interior from an International Scout Traveler and it really makes this truck very handsome. The seats are in great condition, while the deluxe black carpet is in great condition. The headliner and the original three-spoke steering wheel are also in good shape. The tan instrument panel with a full array of gauges and the inner door panels are in good original order.In addition, Dynamat has been installed in the floorboards, within the doors and in the headliner; the Wagonmaster for being a large vintage truck, drives pretty quietly in the cab during highway driving.

It came with standard, Deluxe or Custom interior and exterior trim levels. The Deluxe and Custom interiors shared the same color-coded nylon or vinyl seats, tinted glass, padded door trim and headliner and some miscellaneous bric-a-brac. Custom added full carpeting, extra interior lighting, dual horns and a few other goodies. A/C was optional. Outside, both the Deluxe and Custom trims shared bright trim and chrome bumpers. Deluxe came with bright hubcaps while Custom gave you full wheel covers and woodgrain side panels. Two-tone paint was optional.

On the surface, it was a good notion and pitched directly to the sales department and passed for production without much engineering review. During the long lead presentations to the auto press, the Wagonmasters fifth-wheel prowess was touted, but they soon found there wasnt
