71 IH Johnnie Reb

Recommended Posts

Hello

I have a 71 IH Johnnie Reb pickup (only 485 made) and have future to restore it and am wondering if anyone else has one restored? If so would you be willing to share any pictures?

Thanks, James

That's a rare one for sure, any pics of it? There's a few pics of a Johnny Reb on the Super Scout Specialist site.

You have that right took some tire cleaner and removed most of it. You need to get your avatar model to advertise upcoming tractor shows, they would set attendance records.

I am curious were the 485 number comes from. Is that number published as fact some where.

I have been counting the line set tickets for the Johnnie

Rebs listing which state they went to and what engine went in the different ones. I have not worked on the project for awhile but I am pretty sure i have gone past 485 trucks.

I have been told for years that they made 1500 Golden Jubilees. "One for every dealer" and that was a bunch of hog wash.

We found almost 3,000 of them and they were shipped to over 20 countries.

Nice truck.....good luck on the restoration.

There is at least one restored Johnny Reb, done by the Scout Connection in Ft. Madison, IA. Here it is at the 2005 Scout Nationals

The Johnnie Reb was made only for the southeastern US ( would not be popular up north). The production number actually came from an article about this truck on the Super Scout Specialist website.You can see a golden jubilee far easier than a Johnnie Reb. The only one I saw as a child when new I now own. I'm not saying The article is an absolute fact but I assumed they knew what they were talking about being that several publications on IH trucks have pictures of the "jubilee" and none of the "Johnnie Reb"

James I wrote the article on the Johnnie Rebs. When I went to the 1992 scout nationals a lot of the "experts" had never heard of the Johnnie Reb pick-up. Howard Pletcher was still working at Navistar and knew someone that had acess to the lineset tickets. The 487 number was the best estimate we could come up with. Mike is actually hand counting the Johnnie Reb lineset tickets to come up with an accurate total. Sorry for the confusion. Eason

Few more pics of a Johnnie Reb, this one's an 1110 with 392 and 4spd.

That's interesting someone has taken out the rubber plug for the gas tank filler hole on the right side of the cab. Truck also looks like a 1110 and has the fender fill fuel tank. odd again. Eason

I think there may be more out there than we all think, I've been offered one up here in Northern Canada!! Still has the decals on it apparantly.

That is a really long drive from the southern states, makes me think some were sold in Canada too.... now I'm more curious about that truck, guess I should go look at it eh. (like I need another project!) :blink:

I have a 71 1110 that has the right side fender fill tank, it does not have the rubber plug in the cab and it's original. I have never figured out what the determining factor was in whether they got the fender fill or the cab fill. My 3 other IH pickups of same era all have cab fill right side tank.

Dad's 71 1010 had the fender fill tank and the rubber plug. He always fussed about the rubber plug on a $4000 pick-up (71 prices)

According to Howard Pletcher and the SS Specialists website 1971 was the only year

1971 was the only year. They were announced Feb or March 1971. I've held the 1 page flyer that was given to the dealers. Would sure love to have that flyer now. Eason

But remember it was common to title a 71 truck as a 72 if it wasn't sold until then so he may have a good reason to think it's a 72.

That's true Howard but a 1971 IH pick-up was the only year of the D series to have a grille of it's own. The 69/70, 72/73, and 74/75 trucks had the same grille for 2 consecutive years. Eason
