The International Light Line pickups also called the International D-Series — replaced the C-Series  as International's Light Line range of pickup trucks in earlyfor a shortened model year.
The name started out as a simple continuation of the previous A- B- and C-series trucks. It was largely a rebodied version of its predecessors, with a square-rigged look very similar to the period Scout utility vehicle.
The light line of trucks was marked by a larger range of transmission and wheelbase options than any of its competitors, and in general the lineup aimed to maximize adaptability. Several models were also available as a cab on a bare frame for construction of stake-bed or other applications, some with an optional dual-wheel rear end, with available load ratings up to seven tons.
These larger models were not popular, with most buyers opting instead for the Loadstar models.

The engine range was the same as for the earlier pickups, although AMC's six was added later in The smaller was dropped for as was the V8 which had still been available in early As IH's own engines were temporarily in short supply due to the success of the Loadstar medium-duty truck, some and pickup trucks received AMC's ci V8 engine instead called the V on International's option list.
The crew cab Travelette was only available on the series. The and have the same weight rating, the difference being in the front suspension: independent, by torsion-bars, for theand of a solid I-beam construction for the and all heavier versions.
Operating only on the rear wheels, it was made available the pickups and Travelalls in late For the naming changed yet again: the trucks were now called,or depending on the weight rating. External changes were minimal, consisting mainly of a new five-bar metal grille without the vertical dividers, nicknamed the "electric razor grille".
The engine and transmission was also repositioned lower and further behind the front axle centerline in preparation for the new MV-series gas and diesel V8 engines that never actually made it into series production.
The Travelette crew cab was no longer available with four-wheel drive. Only the, and Series remained by the time the s were introduced. In the end, however, Pickup and Travelall production ended on 28 Aprilwith only about 6, made. Another issue of concern was the truck-centered nature of International's dealers, while most competing light trucks were beginning to be sold to suburban buyers in more alluring and better located auto show rooms.

International Light Line pickup
Model Overview Images are general in nature and may not reflect the specific vehicle selected.The International Harvester Travelall is a model of full-size, truck-based vehicles that were manufactured by International Harvester in four generations from to With a layout similar to the Chevrolet Suburbanand optional factory four-wheel drive fromit is both a precursor to modern people movers and full-size sport utility vehicles.
International Harvester introduced a new line of trucks, the R Seriesin Included was the inch-wheelbase Travelalla panel truck equipped with side windows and either two or three rows of passenger seats. Side-opening "barn" style rear cargo doors were standard, with a tailgate available as an option. A Travelall name badge was mounted on the front cowl directly below the International name badge.
A few L-Series trucks were also produced with windows and seats inbut whether the Travelall name was used that year is unknown. Prior toInternational station wagon type vehicles were mainly woodies — third-party company conversions with wooden bodies, that were simply called "station wagon". The Travelall name continued to be used for station wagon versions of the succeeding S-lineA-line, and B-line pickup trucks. Access to the rear seats in these two-door Travelalls was gained by flipping up the passenger side of the front seat.
The S-Series BD engine was similar. The S-Series Travelall was offered as the S or heavier duty S, which was also available with optional four-wheel drive beginning inand for that reason has been called one of the earliest full-sized, civilized, all-terrain people movers, now known as SUVs. Introduced in for the model year, the A-series for "Anniversary", marking fifty years of International Harvester truck production offered a 2nd passenger side door for improved access to the rear seats.
Although only lightly modified, the B-Line trucks that appeared in offered upgraded options for the Travelall. Power steering, power brakes, V-8 engines, and other comfort, convenience, and visual appeal features were introduced to make the Travelall more mainstream and less commercial. A B model featured uprated springs for a higher GVW. The B-Line trucks carried on into the model year, when another mild facelift transformed them again into the C-Line.
In April the Travelall underwent the same changes as the pickup range upon which it was based. The new C-series Travelall benefitted from a whole new chassis with all new independent front torsion bar suspension. This adjustment increased the front clearance angle in spite of the lower body. This series was available either with a flip-down tailgate or two doors. The fold down gate had a window which wound down electrically.Skip to main content.
