That was a good article and slide show of the IH trucks. John, you sure had your share of Travells. Here is an ad I have showing one. Is that fake woodgrain on the side?

Nice model too. B)

Yes that would be woodgrain vinel type material applied to the sides, my 1972 2x4 had the woodgrain in the pic above, the 74 2x4 had a white strip ,as well as the 1975 4x4.

Yes that model could drive my vehicle anytime, but has probably aged a little since then, like the rest of us, as I believe that would be a 1970 pic.

Hi john r

cold enough for you, sure is down here -31 here now with a windchill of -41. pfl. must have left the north door open, he must be froze up as I don't see him on here tonight.

On that trailer hookup it was legal in MB.( was also legal in SK.) when i put it together in 1974, some time later the interpertation of the law changed, I haven't pulled that hitch for a few years, as you know i have health problems. I still pull the trailer to antique shows or tractor pulls.

John; we had a few lynx around here 30 or 40 years back,not any more.But we now have elk ,moose and once in a while a bear,couger or wolf is spotted. John did you make any progress in your serach for that super 9?

I'm sorry I didn't get a picture when I spotted a 70's travelall ambulance I some where south of Willington ND last year.

The "ambulance" line reminded me about a T-all I took a picture of in Texas a couple years ago. Was at a RV park in New Braunfels and didn't appear to be in use any more.

Ya, I'm sure that iswhat they were originally. I worked in a dealership in those D line years. Seem to remember some literature coming thru from a "modifier' to build those things for airport shuttles. Stretch limo before it became fashionable. LOL

Loadstar;

That is a Lynx that is in that pic, I had a trap line back in the early 70s,mostly trapping coyote, fox, coon, beaver, but there was bobcat and lynx around also. We would catch about 3 lynx a season also about 3 bobcats. The bobcats weren't worth much for fur, but the lynx was a very high price pelt, if my memory is correct that one sold in auction for $300.00 which was a lot of money in those years. We used to get $150-$160 for coyote back then which was real good money as I would catch about 150 a season.I would skin fleash,and streach all my own catches, so was real busy for that three month period. I would be on the trapline from daylight to dark, the have to process two or three pelts every evening.

Johnr; Where I live there is alot of wildlife. along with the ones mentioned above would be; mink weasel, badger, muskrat, timberwolfe, couger, blackbear, moose, elk, whitetail deer, mule deer. I noted an one thread some talk about couger, there has been couger in this country since early times. I have seen them many times, could have shot them but never did, probably would now as they are seen around here all the time, and show very little fear of man, there was a girl killed near here some years ago by a couger, and also we are loosing calves to them as well as the timberwolfe and coyote

John, looks like that was a pretty scary ride when the Travelall hit the water. We usually have a few of those on the Qu'appelle lakes each year at the beginning of winter when trucks venture out too far too soon.

Perusing the upcoming auction sales I came across some interesting finds including this A150.
