    I just don't use it and I feel it deserves a better home.
    It runs fine and will take me anywhere I want.
    If I sell it, I will want premium money for it and won't entertain offers. Please don't reply and inform me of what it's worth.

    Eh, I drive it every other week just to keep it right. I think if I did something drastic (quickie two tone paint job) it would excite me again. Heck, I got excited when I washed it 2 weeks ago and saw it sitting in our driveway. It's a badass truck!
    I don't know.....

    Some things are easily replaced if you realize after selling that you made a mistake. With the amount of work you have done to your very nice '68, that wouldn't be the case. So I would be very sure I wouldn't miss it too much. I vote for keep it :)

    Only you know if you will regret selling it, but I think you will, just by the way your looking for a reason not to.

    Step away from the computer. You'll regret selling it.

    I think the Travelall is safe, and its just the wine talking.

    I've always tried to follow the rule, if there isn't a price tag on something, it isn't really for sale, excluding someone offering an exuberant price, significantly above and beyond market value, by someone who truly wants/needs the item more than the seller.

    Either way, looks to be a nice vehicle. I would be proud to own it.

    ....Of coarse, not being sure what to do with the travelall gets under your skin and after a bottle or two the great idea is.... "I'll just ask a bunch of IH addicts what they think". :laugh:

    With that said, very nice old truck. I'd keep it. For now.


    Sure seems as though you'd like to sell it at some point and find it a home where it would be used more and the wine has beaten down the IH keeper/hoarder gene a bit.
    Only you can decide what to do but if the idea to sell is there, then it's there. The way things have been price wise lately, maybe someone will come in with a offer that's much more than you think. I doubt it'd come from here though.....LOL

    I’m not selling either of my IHs. Ever. In my mind they can’t ever be replaced. I still regret my selling the first Scout I had.
    I’d like a couple more.
    My wife or son can sell them when I’m gone.
    Randall - that Travelall looks awesome. Don’t do it.

    Great decision Randall! Of course as a restorer and collector of vintage ham radio gear I am the last person to ask for advice about thinning down the collection BUT it is a MUCH safer addiction than drugs or alcohol... As long as I don't electrocute myself :)

    Typically when I send a piece of radio gear down the road, it is because I acquired a nicer example of that model but since you already have a very nice example of a '68 Travelall that rationale can't apply. Now go take "Travis the Travelall" out for a spin.

    Please keep it! It is probably paid for, so it does not owe you anything! Drive it to the gas station and top of fuel tanks, while there, a bunch of people will compliment you on your nice old suburban and you can smile and drive it home, park it in the driveway and admire it some more!

    Yeah, it's paid for. The movie people paid me almost as much as the purchase price so it could sit on set for 2 days.
    I drove it yesterday with my kids while listening to Fats Domino play on the AM radio.
