1967 International Travelette





Beautiful truck.  These were based on the International Travelall and were the first production double cabs.  Not a lot of these around.  This one appears to have a bio-diesel setup.

  2. This was a three year project just completed this summer. I wanted a Travelette that didn't have the mechanical complications of a 44 year old truck, and so found this rig in CA that had updated 70's axles and hardly Amy rust. I bought a 1990 Dodge D250 with a 12v Cummins and asked my mechanic to work with me to combine the best of both worlds.

    1. Hi ! I'm a french modeler (3d modeling for games & animation) and I'm looking around the web to find some references about this car, in order to model it btw. What I need is a bunch of pics coming from the same vehicle, including passenger compartment, under vehicle and engine. It's hard to find because as said here, there is "not a lot of these around" ! The best way for me to provide to futur video games players a great experience using this vehicle, is to find a passionate travelette owner (hard in France) who agrees to send me pics of his vehicle... You can send me a mail at mesquevin@gmail.com

  3. Hey Anon! I gave you a solid thumbs up not too long ago crossing the east side of the Burnside bridge. Truck is stunning, and I loved hearing that turbo spool up. Wish I could have taken some photos myself, hopefully one day.
