Blue bus #7

Picked up my bus this morning. It's a 75 international loadstar. Sv345 with at540 transmission. Planning on doing a temporary conversion for now to get an rv title and to be used on our elk hunt in November. After that, a full conversion is the plan as time and money come along. 20190728_095007.jpg20190728_095032.jpg20190728_101721.jpg20190728_101854.jpg

Looks like someone got a start on the conversion, a definite bonus!
Also looks like it motor~vates down the road still. Double bonus!!
Good luck on your conversion update...

Hello fellow Loadstar owner. Mine is a 71. I have had other old loadstar trucks too, and built/modified a few Internationals. Have fun ,good luck and ask questions if you have any problems.

It was mostly full of junk but the previous owner did live in it for a little while. It has been gutted back out though. There is still a black water tank, fresh water tank, a couple propane tanks still mounted underneath! I drove it home probably 40 miles. Drives great, but shakes a bit over 50mph. I need to look over the suspension. Tires were new in 2015 but only have 2000 miles on them. Should be a good start.

Got all the junk cleaned out and pulled up the osb and rubber. Looks like im going to be doing a bit of rust repair. I knew there would probably be some while crawling around under it when i bought it. 20190729_142704.jpg20190729_162807.jpg20190729_162701.jpg20190729_162706.jpg20190729_162718.jpg

It looks worse in person. Ive spent my whole life in AZ so ive never really had to deal with rust. Won't be a problem though.
