Neat old classic original survivor pickup truck
This would be a great pickup to restore, or just do a little work to it and drive it as-is. The body is in really nice original shape. Clear title in my name. This pickup has one piece, non-split, 19.5″ wheels which is a nice bonus. Most others I have seen before have split rims.
The IHC has the inline six cylinder. I’m pretty sure it is the BD-240, which I’ve read was standard equipment. The engine runs good. It doesn’t miss or have any significant leaks. Just the usual old-truck seepage. The carburetor needs rebuilt. It doesn’t want to idle without the choke partially on. It does not smoke at all, even when cold. It needs new exhaust. I would do the usual tuneup stuff and change all the fluids. The brakes work but they should all be checked out too. This has the 4-speed manual with granny low and reverse. The transmission and clutch work well. No slipping or anything weird. This has the twin-stick transfer case.The transfer case needs rebuilt. When I got the truck the transfer case was locked up. I took it out and disassembled it. I put it back together enough for the truck to be moved around for loading purposes. The transfer case needs new seals and bearings. The case is also cracked but is fixable. The gears are all in good usable condition. I just put the transfer case back together enough to get it driving so some parts for the low range are not in it but will be included. There are many online and print tutorials on how to rebuild it but many transmission shops and mechanics also do this kind of work and it’s very basic. The front driveline is out but is included. I’ve driven the truck just fast enough to test all the gears. This has 19.5 one piece wheels. Load rated radial tires have good tread but have weather cracking. They would probably be ok for around a small town or farm. I have not tried anything electrical in the truck. It most likely needs some attention there or at least checked out. The generator light is on. Most of these old trucks wiring should be checked out to make sure no insulation is bad or cracking. It is cheap and easy to completely re-wire them with a new wiring harness.
These trucks have very little upholstery when new. The seat needs recovered but the springs are fine. The floormat is gone. New floormats are sold. The dash is in good shape and not cut up. Doorpanels and roof are not cut up either. Vintage gunracks still in place! The large lever under the dash is for the horns on the hood. The doors and windows work as they should but the button on the passenger door is sticky. Both windows are sticky to roll up/down which is normal. It’s easy to lube them. Door glass and rear window are cracked.
The body is in nice shape. Original paint with nice patina. No sign of any repaint ever. No bondo or filler. No rust-thru anywhere on the exterior. Straight body for the most part with a few small dings. The hood on these trucks opens and tilts to either side. It can also be removed easily which makes mechanical jobs easier. The latches on both sides work properly. There is no rust-thru on the undercarriage either and the frame is in nice shape. The front removable floorpan piece has two smaller spots of rust. The other area of the floor and the rest of the sheetmetal has no rust-thru. This includes, but is not limited to: the cab, box, doors, hood, fenders, inner fenders, firewall, header, cowl, tailgate, roof, etc. etc. The aftermarket grandpa horns are included! lol. I have not tried them to see if they work. They can be removed and the two holes easily sealed from inside the hood. A winch bumper looks cool on the old cornbinders. Overall, the body is in nice original shape. It’s a good one to restore or just drive as-is.
