Here's a photo of a special model made for the southern districts in the early 1970's. I'm not sure if there were more than a thousand of these and only a few survive.

Only 485 "Johnnie Reb's" were made in 1971. The pictured truck is: lineticket code 10965 00001
Supposedly this is the only known pickup with stickers intact (now restored). One does have the sense
that there is one sitting in a barn somewhere.

As for rarity, I came across a '71 "SnowStar" pickup online. I have never seen one of these before.
Have not seen one restored either, but have not viewed everything.

I have the breakdown of the models somewhere that you got me for a article I wrote for this old truck magazine. There are still a few around I know where 3 are sitting right now but are not for sale.

I am curious were the production numbers come from. Big Swede says 485.....Eason 487. Are these numbers handed down over the years or is there a real source from IH on the numbers?
I told Eason today that I am recording all of the Johnnie Rebs serial number and recording were they went to. I went through 2 rolls of microfilm today but IH did a pretty bad job on some of the rolls they take quite awhile to go through since they are hard to read.
I have the 4 pages of lineset for that truck (pictured above) in front of me. The trucks lives around the corner from me.
The truck was painted originally on June 2, 1971 but had to have the right front fender repainted on June 6, 1971 before they applied the decals. The truck's serial number is H155XXX.

What does the '71 Snowstar look like?

I don't have any good picts of a Snowstar, but here's a couple of shots someone posted when he bought one which will give you an idea of what they looked like.

If you go to www.superscoutspecialists.com you can see some more views of the same SnoStar that Howard posted. They are under the "Service and Restoration" page and then go into "IH Photo Archives #2", and then into the 71 SnoStar. Looks like they came with a snow blade and some special graphics.
