Default 68 1200c options and info?

Hi all
Thanks for allowing me to join I have too
Many projects like most people
And one is this 68 1200c 2wd flat side truck
Vin says it has a 193hp motor and I have a few questions/offers

What trans would this truck have? It's an auto

What motor would this be as all I can find listed are 155hp

Dash says international gold key model ???

The truck seems very plush and flash for
An old IH I have ideas on things if I keep it

But like I said I have too many projects allready.
First hurdle and an offer some of you maybe interested in is
Fabbing up steel one piece 16 inch wheels I may make
Myself a set that accept the stock hub caps and IF there's enough interest I may well make up further sets to order

IF I keep it or don't part it Where can I buy restoration parts? mainly trim or interior ? The truck is actually pretty darn nice but would be awsome to
make it mint for a parts getter or weekend cruiser might even 4x4 it or and diesel swap ( another thing some here maybe interested in? ) so il be researching axle Orin's which may kill
The wheel fabbing idea but it's a nice truck pretty sure it's only been a cabover camper hauler
Thanks again smogmonster ( Lake Tahoe)

Welcome to the forum. I moved your thread to a more appropriate section. The first step towards getting answers to some of your questions is to find the Line Setting Ticket, what IH called their vehicle build sheet. On some years of trucks, they can be found taped to the back side of the glove box liner. On others, they were taped to the passenger door A-pillar. On some others, they were taped to the cowl under the hood. If you can't find yours anywhere, or if you do find it and it's illegible, you can purchase a copy of it through IH Parts as long as you have your VIN handy. That ticket will list every major piece of equipment that was installed on your truck when it rolled down the line. That doesn't mean the truck still has all that stuff all these years later. The 193 hp rating is for a 304 engine. An original automatic for that era truck would be a Borg Warner unit.

There were some cool 1968 options. My Travelall came with a ton of factory and dealer installed options and I have been slowly performing a stock restoration because I recognized how rarely people ordered trucks with "high end" accessories in the late 60's. If you have the embossed door panels with the horizontal black/chrome strip, I've yet to see one recreated, so take good care of them or find a good set. The backing can go bad, but as long as the vinyl material is good, they can be re-done. I was able to get my seats reupholstered with original NOS material, which is pricey but still available. Do you have a bench or the folding center console option? Post some photos!
