Here’s some shots of new trucks and equipment the US Forest Service received in 1964. let’s start with this gnarly International 4×4 Travelall. As you’ll see, it’s one of the few to have four wheel drive.
Here’s some more:
This Dodge looks to be a 3/4 ton D200, with an eight foot bed that is clearly not the usual Utiline, but more likely dumping bed or something different.
A new Galion grader with some of those long-body Chevy C30 panel trucks in the background we saw the other day.
Dodge D-Series Stake bed truck.
Case 740 front end loader and backhoe.
Dodge CT800 tiltbed equipment hauler.
And an International R-series tiltbed hauler.
Dodge w200 Powerwagon 4×4 pickup. That’s a tough looking truck.
And it appears that the Forest Service hadn’t started using its signature pea-green paint yet, as these are a khaki color. Anyone know what year that started? probably just a few years after these. And now they’re all white, as the resale is better.
Wonder if anyone of them still exist?
