    This is a 1970 Travelette 4x4, I know at one point it works at a lumber mill. A guy at a gas station once said he thought it was a former navy truck. It seems like it follows the Rallye style but thought I would bounce it off the IH gods for advice.[​IMG] [​IMG]

    Most 69-75 full size p/u factory two tones would have been lower body/roof or full body/white side panel or wood grain within trim . I believe the 69-70 factory grill had two versions. White or chrome. Never saw a factory blue grill or a blue that shade on a fullsize.

    With IH there's always exceptions perhaps with special orders/ rare versions or fleet buys but that one's been painted over. As mentioned a nice solid looking truck.

    Nice truck. I don't think it is a stock paint scheme. If the white is stock, the roof would maybe have been black. Two tone was an option level. It looks like it doesn't have the chrome that would have matched the option level either.

    Doubt it, especially if it was a Navy truck.

    Check the Line Setting Ticket

    Check the back of the glove box (flip it all the way open; past the spring clips). There might still be a "minature" version of the LST taped to the back.
