Wow! That's an awesome find Val! Looks better than I imagined when you told me about it. That will sure come in handy hauling that high crop around and will sure turn some heads

Val,

Sure is a nice one. Certainly my pleasure to be a go-fer. When I picked up the tranny, I got to meet a fellow that has a shopfull of International pickups - a real treat.

That's the gas fill on the RF fender. I remember from being a gas-pump jockey in the sixty's.
A guy came in with one pulling a camper.
As I remember the tank was huge. Plenty of time to check the oil, air the tires, and wash the winshield while it filled.

Val:

I always thought the TravelAll's were the coolest of the Suburban style trucks. This one is a beauty :!: :D
