1973 IH International 1210
Beginning in 1971, IH offered a few limited edition pickups for specific regions. For the sales districts in the Southeastern U.S. was the “Johnny Reb”, festooned in orange and gray. Up north, the “SnoStar” was the industry’s first factory-optional snow plow package.
A novel concept was introduced in 1973 called the Wagonmaster. It was essentially a crew cab pickup version of the Travelall wagon with a minimalist unitized cargo box. Although targeted at the early fifth wheel camper market, it actually foreshadowed vehicles like the Chevrolet Avalanche and Honda Ridgeline by three decades
While IH may have had some forward thinking trucks, sales declined despite overall growth in the truck market from the 1960s on. While the OPEC oil embargo of 1973 contributed, it was mostly due to multiple internal corporate problems that would eventually see the company reorganized in the mid-1980s. As a result, the Light Line trucks were discontinued in 1975.
