Vintage Photos: The Forest Service Gets Some New Trucks And Equipment In 1964

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.

A new International Loadstar that doesn’t have its identification on its door yet.

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?
