When an ordinary station wagon just wasn’t enough for some buyers, a lot of them turned to the Chevy/GMC Suburban; others drifted towards the similar Dodge Town Wagon. Then there were those who wanted something a little more out of the ordinary. Some of them ended up behind the wheel of an International Travelall, a rugged-looking family hauler manufactured by the truck/tractor builder International-Harvester of Chicago. Available in rear- or all-wheel-drive, I-H told us the Travelall, with its generous towing capacity, could “...take your house right to the campsite—road or no road.” I-H produced four generations of the big wagon, from 1953-75, before getting out of the light truck/passenger vehicle business in 1980. This left the company, which was founded in the 1830s by Cyrus McCormick, with its heavy truck/bus and farm implement business. It’s still building the big rigs today as Navistar. This yellow Travelall, c1968, was seen a while back in Pembroke.
