1971 International Travelette 1210 side

The 1971 International Travelette 1210 was the original 4 door 6 passenger truck. Coming in at a ridiculous 22 feet long, this ultra rare 4-wheel drive version of the Travelette is absolutely perfect! Mechanically the truck has been checked, rebuilt or upgraded. This International will truly be a smooth running one of a kind ride! The suspension and brakes have been upgraded, but the majority of this truck is as delivered in 1971. The International still retains the 345 CI V8 and 4 speed manual. Factory installed air conditioning needs some work to function properly, but just to have the original equipment is amazing!

I cant decide if I like whoever owned this 1210 prior to the current owner. I say that because they painted over this awesome color. However, in doing so they may have saved this perfect patina that was hiding underneath. It’s obvious someone has cared for the IH Hulk (see license plate), even before the light restoration. The interior is all original and is in great shape. I’m honestly not sure if there is any other vintage crew cab that I would choose over an International Travelette 1210. The International trucks of this era have a tendency to oxidize and return to earth. So, I’d be hard pressed to find a better mostly original Travelette to put up against this one. This International “IH Hulk” is on Ebay right now with a current bid of $18,000 and is worth a look at that price.

An all original interior looks cleaner than some trucks that are a year old!
