    Hey folks, I haven't got any pictures yet, but I have just acquired a 1975 International-Harvester 1-ton. It is black with a steel flatbed. It has a 9' Meyer, which I'm not too crazy about, but she is a tank! I am a Ford guy, but this definaltly takes the cake on ruggedness. I have an 8 cylender with a 4 on the floor. Transfer case has 2H, 4H, N, 4L. I purchased it from a municiality, which kept it at the airport inside all it's life. Only 14,000 origional miles on it. Anybody jelous? Anybody have a similar truck?

    I'm jealous. I miss my dads scout that thing was a tank and the 345 ran awsome. Only problem with international where the bodys and aftermarket parts where hard to come by. watch out for rust on yours

    We had a 63 1-ton dually with a custom body that we used as a brush truck for the FD. Had to sell it when some new regs came out on trucks. Still see it around ton though.

    Other than the lack of power steering and power brakes the truck was a workhorse.
