    Since my first IH was a 65 D1200 I decided to treat myself and spend some of my retirement fund on a summer toy.
    FWIW they're not too bad. Detail on it is pretty good for a tiny and cheap $15.00 toy. It even has a paint chip indicating a real 1965 IHC color and code on the packaging. Pretty decent desk candy IMHO.

    Its not the right grill style, but I think I might get one, and paint it up like the turnip.

    Just so you realize it, they're 1/64 and very, very tiny. My old eyes can't even see the IH on the hood. There's some different ones (older version of the same) that pop up on ebay as well for short money. You'll need some fine steady handy work to give the turnip justice...:laugh:

    This.....right here.

    This is the type of stuff I'm trying to come up to speed on.

    Subtle hint to Jim/BinderBookie + Octane books. Love the Scout book. Looking forward to spending more money on Scout book rev 2. Would love to give you more money for a pdf version.

    Tractor books, not so much. Not a farmer, and no frame of reference, but maybe in the future.

    OTOH, would love to have an IH Light Line pickup/truck book. hint hint ! :)

    I asked when that book was coming out when the Scout book was released, he didn’t answer.

    I'd been wondering if that trim was year-specific or a trim upgrade. Glad to know the answer!

    Thanks for that reply. If a few of us let him know that there is a want, hopefully it will put a LL truck book on the map.

    OTOH, I have no idea what the popularity of LL trucks are, vs Scout and S2's.

    I can tell you from trying to find parts, they are not nearly as popular. If it wasn’t for this forum and the few knowledgeable vendors, I’d be totally lost. Makes me think, what did you guys do before internet? It’s cool having something no one else has though.

    May have something to do with our hoarding them. Parts were always a challenge, especially leading up to and the end of IH when the good IH parts guys found themselves without a job anymore as the dealers slowly went away. Nothing beats going out back and finding what you need. Around here as the daily runners faded way , you felt like an oddball by hanging onto trucks you thought were all but gone. Gotta tell you, I was very suprised when I found this site and realized how many people out there still have and use them. Even more so once I realized they're about as crazy. Making baked goods with the IH logo on them like we have in the past speaks volumes of our mentality with these things. Best thing is I learned a lot about one scout I've kept in one piece that I never realized, even after owning it for 30 years. Few guys here with some very deep knowledge and experience with IH. Bad thing now is we still have too much crap out back. But it is dwindling between scrap runs by getting useable parts to people who appreciate it on here.

    It’s like a scavenger hunt sometimes. And although I like the challenge, makes me a little jealous of my buddies with old gms and fords where they can just get anything they need repop for cheap. Restoring my 68 pickup has cost me a small fortune. And cause I live by the beach in nj, there is no “out back” I don’t even have a garage. I have bins in my front yard filled with random parts. But the more I dig into it, the more I appreciate it.

    Trust me, count your blessings that you don't have the space. A garage would be nice but you start by thinking you own your possesions. When you have too much space, they end up owning you...:laugh:......

    I don’t think so but I could be wrong. I only know cause I was looking into putting a 63-64 grill in cause I think it’s cooler. I know there was a upgrade that put a strip down the bed. From 63-68 they changed the grill and hood badges. So you can tell by looking at the front end which year it is. Also in 68 they added the marker lights on the side.

    I've probably spent as many hours researching as as I have wrenching.
    This forum is an invaluable source mostly due to the interchangeability of Scout/Full size parts and service methods.
    Thanks all you Scout guys!

    Moving from CO to OH last year made that statement sooo painfully true...

    And yet, I still wants a Travelette...
