Technical specifications, photos and description:
In the year nineteen hundred and seventy three David Ejole from trenton Utah took delivery of his new family wagon. the travelall. David needed enough room for his expanding family but still enough power to pull there new travel trailer and camping gear. David and his family must have been so excited as they pulled out of the A. B. HADLEY international dealership in Ogden Utah. With the optional third seat ( to seperate squabbling brothers and sisters i assume) and optional air conditioning they floated down the road as though they were on a bed of air much like the travelall rides today. the optional 392 v-8 would have provided plenty of power to pull the travel trailer up the mountains with the trailer brake control providing the stopping power. david apparently took great pride in keeping his original paperwork safe from time and the elements as i still have it today. the warranty pamphlet from IH. the vehicles owners manual as well as manuals for the cb radio. m and fm radio. and engine/emissions manual. all of this paperwork in pristine conditon even after 40 years.
time flew by as it always seems to and the ole travelall exchanged hands to a family in idaho. ( where i purchased the vehicle). the new family enjoyed it for a number of years using it sparingly for a camper puller and people hauler until in 2008 the transmission gave out after 117. 00 miles of camper pulling up an down the mountains. the travelall was taken to salt lake city UTAH and given a brand new 727 I transmission with a full warranty. the warranty of course has since expired but the transmission only has 4000 miles on it ( have all receipts and documents). in addition to the new transmission i put new tires all the way around. new valve cover gaskets. and brand new exhaust from the manifolds back with new turbo mufflers. with the tires. xhaust. valve cover gaskets. shipping from out west. i have $2500. 00 in repairs & shipping alone not including the value of the vehicle.
if you have ever had any interest in a vintage vehicle that can still be driven around on everyday tasks and family vacations this travelall is for you! as anyone with a international will attest. you cannot go anywhere without a thumbs up. picture being taken. or conversation starting up about the travelall. and this one looks great with its original paint ( orange two tone is not original just the white). AMAZING original interior. and bulletproof driveline. the engine runs like a sewing machine. drives down the road fantastic. stops without issue. has tons of power. and everything is operational as it should be other than the factory air. the compressor kicks on but i assume it needs charged to kick out the cold. the fan works on all its speeds. heat blows out hot air on the defrost setting or any other settings. the rear electric window works as it should. there are filler spots in the rear wheel wells but not on the rockers. the sheet metal is very nice and rust free with the exception of the rear wheel well lips. there is a crack in the windshield. the interior is in unbelievable condition. seats. carpet are amazing. new headliner and braces. nbsp;dome light works when you open the door . headlights. tailights. blinkers. horn. high beams. dash lights all work without issue. please check out the feedback from all the international vehicles i have sold in the past. you will not find any unhappy buyers. i represent my vehicles honestly in hopes the new owner will be excited to be involved in our international harvester community. IH was an amazing company producing a great number of fantastic. well built products distributed to the entire world. hook this travelall to a 70's travel trailer and pull into just one campground and see what happens! people come out of the woodwork from every walk of life to see what the heck it is or reminice about there grandfathers international that just wouldn't quit. people see mustangs. corvettes. nova's. old ford and chevy trucks all the time. but think back to the last time you were filling up at the gas station and saw a international.
i do not have ANY reserve on this vehicle! bid what its worth to you. nbsp; good luck with your bidding and bid with confindence. you will not be dissapointed. dont buy ANY international just because its cheaper because i promise you it will always cost you MORE in the long run. i know these vehicles. i have owned many of these vehices. and i can tell you this is one you can get in and drive around and enjoy the experience. the frame. body mounts. heater box. are all rust free. i have seen these that look great at first glance. then the body falls off the mounts and the money pit begins. dont get sucked into that trap. i want you to enjoy the international harvester ownership experience and get your friends involved. this travelall will do that. remember. the windshield is cracked. body filler in ONLY the rear wheel well lips. other than that it has been gone through and ready for the road. good luck to you!
