Anyone Know the Owner of this D301 Truck?

Recommended Posts

Yes, I am still obsessed with learning more about the D301 diesel powered IH light trucks. Howard Pletcher found some pictures from the 2007 Scout and Light Truck Nationals of a '61-62 C-Line Travelette mounting a D301 diesel and I attache them here. I have found one other diesel Travelette and I know this isn't it. I also know this could be a swap and not original to the truck.. but that's what I want to find out. I know there were a very few done in '63 and one test truck in '62, so a genuine ''61-62 truck (assuming it hasn't had some body parts changed) woulf be veerrry eeeterestink!

This truck was parked next to my Golden anniversary at the 2007 (100 year celebration at Scout Nationals) My best memory is that the name was something like Dakota Customs (it had a lot of digital dash additions and accessories that they would sell for your truck and was used as a display for their products.

WISH my memory was better!!

I think it was Dakota Digital in Sioux Falls SD! I saw your article in Diesel World, was well done! Reminded me I had not remembered to send you my SN and pictures of my 1966 C1300 Diesel. will do that soon.

Looking forward to adding that number to the Database. It's a fascinating and little known branch of the C-Line truck family tree.
