Welcome to the forum mxr!

That's a fine lookin' rig...very well put together!

Bein' a '74/'75 "squarebody, it's majorly diffeernt sheetmetal-wise and under the sheetmetal. The 200 denotes as being originally a so-called "3/4 ton" platform but in actually it's gvwr coulda been spec'd to be much greater! IH didn't build rigs like chryfordrolet, these were built to individual dealer order and no two were exactly the same, there was no "pool" versions ever, even though many were sold on fleet orders where the spec's for all were identical. This is /was common practice in the truck industry, not so in passenger vehicle bizz!

Those "last gen" rigs were unique due to the "down and back" placement of the engine as compare to the m/y '69>'73 d models. Notice the deep radiator shroud as opposed to the more shallow shroud you will see in pics elsewhere on the forum. See this thread right under yours regarding some of that "difference":

http://www.forums.IHPartsAmerica.com...Travelall.html

Pickups and travelalls are basically the same product, different body of course, thus we refer to this stuff as "fullsize" as compared to the various Scout series models.

For the last two year models...the hoods, grills, roofline, front fenders, front section of the frame' the engine mounts, the added bracing under the front fenders, etc. Were somewhat different from the earlier designs, thus many parts do not interchange!

Production of the fullsize stuff ended with the '75 model year production run, though there were some 1976 models produced to fulfill fleet orders, governmental fleet orders, etc. In general, we consider the '75 as the last fullsize vehicle from the IH light line production operation.

Drop the glove box completely out of it's compartment by squeezing the clips on each side and releasing. You hopefully will find a "line set ticket" taped to the back of that box, that is the complete production record for that vehicle, and no other.

Keep asking questions...someone around here will help ya out!

The bee this year is all still a blur to me john! But I do remember our discussion and you are welcome here any time to start on your degree at binder u.! That rig is truly special and really makes our junk look even worse!

Sap...as for the tailgate insert...that is a part of the "custom" package of trim level iirc. And guess what...I have one in the office right now (black background) that is real nice, I was gonna hang it on the office wall!! Just needs a cleanup with detergent. And it could easily be completely detailed/restored with some careful masking with friskit paper!

If ya want it, and plan to bee at the Sierra Fall Rallye I'll drag it down for ya..we can work out some kinda tradeout I'm sure, I ain't no bandit! Shipping this is too risky!

Mike, as far as your comment on the 200 series pickup being under rated, I have a 74 100 and have often wondered the difference between the two. When I get a chance to see a 200 in person I compare the two frames and see no visible difference. I have not gone as far as measuring thickness but the entire length looks the same. There are the obvious differences like axle gvwr and springs, but even all the suspension mounts look the same. Just wondering if you had any additional info on this matter. Thanks justin

I would think there would be a difference between a "1/2 ton" frame and a "/34 ton" frame -- probably the thickness of the steel as you state. Also, the "height" and / or the "width" of the "c"s May be slightly different.

But, the ratings of the axles / springs / tires / rims make up the gvw.

Another reason the engine was "moved back" in 74 / 75 was probably to clear the front indpendent coil suspension on the 2wds -- IH did not use the torsion bar / I-beam front suspension in 74 - 75 afaik.

The 200 frame is not under-rated -- it is based on the "load rating" of the components specified above.

My 73 1210 ("3/4 ton") t/a was available in gvw of 6200, 7500 and 8200 lbs. Of course, a gvw of 6200 lbs gave you a load capacity of 500 - 700 lbs since it weighs around 5500 lbs full of gas.

I assume there was a similiar range of available gvws for a 200 -- up to 9000 - 10000 lbs... In the camper specials (or if you orderd the springs / axles that were part of the camper special package).

A complete comparative analysis of an mt-136 parts manual for the '74>'76 d model trucks will point out many detailed differences in in parts and equipment related to the gvwr of an individual truck. There was only one basic frame used in several wheelbase variations and it was engineered for the highest gvwr application.

This is not the way that chryfordrolet did it!

I've got a 1975 I.H. Truck w/ 392 5 speed. It seems to be a flat bed welding truck. And, wondering ( Like You ) how many were built?
