Sell/trade 1961 IHC all wheel drive 18K GVW 8K orig. miles.

Thinking of selling or trading for solid D90 SW: My 1961 International AWD 18K GVW beast. Only 8K, yes 8000 or so --->original<--- miles. Has been in shows, parades and used at my boatyard. SUPER truck!

I have pictures of everything during and after the full frame off clean up.

Not sure if there would be any interest on this board... but it is a great old truck and very unique. 345 V8 with newer model four barrel intake, Rockwell axles, 7.17 gears, heavy divorced transfer and 5 speed non-OD transmission. Tons of power and goes very very well. 6 Brand new radial 8.25-20 Michelin snow/mud traction tires and a TOTAL frame off restoration. Truck was 100% solid before resto, no body work needed at all. Just cleaning, detailing, full new wire harness/modern fuse block rewire and painting/sealing things up. Electronic Pertronix & MSD ignition, edlebrock carb, full interior heavy sound deadening and thick carpet, headliner, sunroof, new gauges, tilt wheel and POWER steering. Also has power windows and a custom made opening/sliding rear cab window. Dual battery set-up with charger in the under-body mounted storage boxes and set up for 110V in the cab for tools/battery chargers etc.

Custom shortened frame (wheelbase is the same as a full size 3/4 ton long bed pickup - 130 inches or so if i recall??) and 9 foot long fully custom made and prof. powder-coated flatbed with dump option. This is a serious truck and VERY rare. One of only a small handful of the 4 headlight models, not to mention the all wheel drive.

Appraised at a crazy price by two places.... I've seen what less complete and rare trucks go for and it seems $22K is a decent price. I have a TON $$ in the truck.... hell price the tires alone - you'll be shocked! Obviously I am open to reasonable offers but the appraised value is much more.

It would be a long ride at 55-60 MPH but the truck would drive 'cross country if you wanted to. At 8-9 MPG you may want to have it hauled. LOL.

Thanks! Doug

Added a whole bunch of picture links on DWeb.

Gives an idea anyway. I have a lot more pictures and even a video or two of the truck. Thanks all.

Just an update as I did have someone interested (maybe from here?) in a D90 with soft top trade - I would be interested, but would prefer a SW.

Thanks all.

Sorry to keep bumping this... but i would be interested as I mentioned on DWeb in the link, in trades for a clean RRC or even a D1 plus some cash.

I'd like a smaller vehicle that my wifey and I can use on a more regular basis. I am very willing to listen to any reasonable offers as i realize this is a very unique truck and an odd market for it.

Thanks!

Maybe you could post the picture links here. You need a discoweb account to view them which some people don't have.

Duh, thanks - didn't think about that.

Sort of behind my old TDI D2

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v1...o/P1020772.jpg

Another silly one.... kind of hidden.

Under construction and re-wire etc.

Motor getting plumbed and wired

Some of the parts back from the paint shop

Interior starting to get wired and detailed **THE SEAT WAS TEMPORARY and is really ugly - was just there to park my butt on while i wired etc. Truck has the original bench in it.

Chissis outside after sandblasting, etching and painting. Motor had the PVC tube on keeping the coolant in while the rebuild took place so seals would stay lubricated and not dry out. The truck and chassis were NEVER left outside for more than a couple hours or so at most during the whole several year process.

Truck in "before" restoration condition.

I had sanded the body down and the primer was simply sprayed over any spots that started to sand through on the paint right as I sanded so there was no way for any rust to start at all. The trucks metal never stayed exposed for more than a day even inside my heated dry shop.

Another as-is before resto shot.

And yes there are "dual" rear wheels.... they were just off during the resto so it was easier to get around in my shop. I had to do the work in the small side of the shop as the boats were taking up the rest of the room.

Thanks again all. Hope this helps.

Doug

Couple more they are more recent - and the big bumper is currently off as it needs to be freshened up, but I have it as well as the huge PTO winch that lives on there.

Thanks!

Thinking of a much reduced price..... make me an offer, I have found a few Rovers now I would LOVE to buy but the wifey says this has to go first!

Help me get back into a Rover *and* stay happily married by buying this NICE truck.

Could you maybe put it up for auction somewhere? I've never auctioned off a car, but it seems like with a low reserve and a willingness to be flexible, you could sell it at a reputable auction house.

I have looked into auctions, but honestly I am not desperate to sell and i really want to find someone who will love the truck.

That said i may be listing it on ebay soon just to see what happens and there are a couple IHC boards I am going to toss it onto. I hate to see it sit in my shop....

Thanks for the bump horsey boy.

Doug

Follow-up Post:

Oh - and just a heads up... I am reducing the price as it's sad to have the truck just sit her taking up room in the shop. $17K or any reasonable offers.

Thanks,
Doug
