1974 International Harvester OtherI am the third owner of this 1974 100 International Pick up. I want to keep it and restore it, but I have no time to do it, its slowly getting deteriorated. Rather than feel the sadness of watching it rust to nothing I have decided to part with it and let someone bring it back to life the way it should be.
The Good: Have the original line setting ticket. I am the third owner. Vin on truck matches the motor, unmolested motor. Stock parts with exception of lift kit and temporary gas tank and fuel pump. Used to drive regularly, until, someone stole the gas tanks and the key. Had to install a push start button but the ignition key hole is still intact. Needs rekeyed. Drove it a bit last year. About 50 miles. Then the brakes started needing pumping to stop. It will start and run if you bring a battery and gas. For it's age it has low miles. It has the following original equipment to the truck (see line setting photo) : 345 motor, mechanically sound. No blues, bad rings etc. Its a running motor. With the brakes fixed, carb fixed a tune up and oil change its good to go. Driver mirror, arm rest both sides, door handles inside and out, door locks, all windows in great shape, intact and no cracked or broken windows, rear sliding window, front windshield, door windows or wing windows, all intact and good. Window rollers work, Original to truck and still intact but needs restoration, seats and seat cover, window visors. Floor mat is worn, some rusting under the floor mat in passenger and driver floors. Mostly intact, your leg won't fall through the floor, just rusting out with age. Chrome grill,chrome light assembly, front bumber and some side decals all intact as shown in pics. All guages work as do tank switch over switch. Has all the knobs on the dash except possibly one heater button. Has a really old radio may even be the original one. I don't know if I still have the ashtray, I may still have it. Has the gear shifter and knob. I have hub caps. The tires are ok right now, but likely not for much longer. Has rims. Has all the gas pedal, brake pedal rubbers. This truck is an ideal restoration project. with matching body to motor vin. It runs great with the carb fixed, took it fishing and hunting a lot. Had the cv axels restored by Giddum Up Scout in Colorado before they closed and have not driven it a lot since. As far as I know there is no leaking oil and it is mechanically sound. It's never overheated or lost oil. I bought it and it had 78,000 original miles.
The Bad: Needs carburator work. The brakes have a problem, they need to be bled I believe. They did work and now they don't, unless you pump them. I thought I had brakes put on the truck two years ago and it pretty much sat around in the driveway, and had the gas tank stolen and key before they could get bled. I don't believe its a master cylinder or line problem but I am not sure. I drove it home from the mechanics after having the gas tank installed, fifty miles away and had to pump them to get it to stop. There is some rust starting at the top of the truck by the windshield on the roof. There is sprays of surface rust starting. The hood hinges, need to be welded back on, the mount spot rusted out and I removed the hinges and haven't welded that plate on. There is no battery. The seats have little leather on them, but you could restore the leather seats and get rid of the old nylon weave type saddle bag seat covers. Unless you want to fix the brake problem, put a battery, fix the carb and some gas in you likely won't be driving it off. But you could if you wanted to spend the time to do that and hold that gas pedal down while you were idling. Your welcome to work on it in my yard. The dash is cracked with age. The four wheel drive works, but some of the teeth are broke on the chain gear so it slips once in a while while its engaged, It can be repaired by getting that four wheel drive chain gear fixed. I checked on it once it was around 60 bucks to replace the gear in the gear box (not including labor). It has a 4" lift kit in it, which is nice, but it has a shorter turn one way I believe when you turn left it doesn't have as wide a turn as the right. A mechanic told me it was because the 4" lift kit was installed and the steering arm wasn't extended.
The Ugly: The brakes didn't work and we were moving the vehicles in my yard around and the truck rolled and my son couldn't stop it in time due to the brake problem and it wrecked into my other car. It curled the rear bumper on the driver side and pushed up the rear quarter panel and broke the light cover on the driver side rear. Could bend it out easily enough do a little body work. Also the front passenger side by the head light, hit the brick wall before it stopped, pushing in that front passenger quarter panel by the head light. See pics. the light is still intact as is the chrome light housing and grill, its a little bent out of shape. The side light, headlight and light assembly is still intact. The rear driver side signal light is there but broken off in the lower section the white half.. Needs that surface rust sanded off and the other rust spots on the floor board fixed. Its beginning to rust above the windshield. I think the tailgate handle is missing or damaged. Engine is dusty needs a good pressure wash. Needs body work, seats re-upholstered, pressure washed and painted. This truck is an excellent restoration project with low original miles, all the little detail parts there and motor matching vin body. The motor isn't shot, it runs fine with exception of carburetor problem. The power steering pump may have leaked once on the lid and I believe it was replaced. I don't recall but didn't notice oil dripping everywhere on the ground or motor. Its been years ago that happened. Its not burning oil, blowing blues or whites, it does die if you aren't giving it the gas when you idle because of the carb.
Its original or stock, all of it except that lift kit, thewheels,the gas tank, ignitionpush startand the littlespeakers in the cab. There were few internationals made and this particular model was only made the last half of 1974 and part of 1975 the 100 series 345 stick shift 4X4 6.5 short bed model. Our whole family will be sad to see it go, but hopefully someone will restore it back to itself and make it awesome again.
