That don't look bad at all!! Great find!! Make us proud!!! I've often wondered if I had one of those how quickly I would tire of playing Johnny Cash's interpretation of "Johnnie Reb" on the cassette deck. I liked his so much more than Johnny Horton's.

If you give the Wisconsin Historical Society a jingle  608-264-6535 ,They will search in their archives for the original LST aka Line setting ticket

It is your trucks birth certificate ,Listing every thing your truck left the factory with . Cost 20 or 25 bucks

Here is a sample

After you get your LST you can go here Vehicle Lineticket Code Reference

On a scale from 1-10, 10 being the rarest where would y'all rate the Johnnie Reb package on the IH trucks?

I'm thinkin they are pretty darn rare. I really don't think there were many made. Maybe Howard will chime in. He knows a lot. 

"I saw you marching with Robert E. Lee. You held your head high, trying win the victory." 

If you haven't noticed, I love that song. 

Man that truck is gonna be cool. What's under the hood?

It's a V8 I haven't looked well enough to tell you a specific size. Unfortunately it's and Auto. That's the only downside how I wish it's was standard! But you know it's still a Johnnie Reb!

What colors are they? Not quite a General Lee orange?

That's a great question. I have referred to the colors as general lee orange and confederate gray but I truly have no idea what the names of the colors are. Hopefully someone on here can say because that is one thing I'm looking for is the paint numbers and names of the truck.
