WANT TO BUY
International Transtar II Wanted

47 posts in this topic

I am pretty sure that the Black truck is not an Eagle. The interior is looks to be one notch over the "Deluxe" steel. The real plain 4070B's I've seen had hard plastic over the dog house. I had one that had some trippy ass reddish shag carpet on the dog house and a power passenger window. Dad said it was one of the nicer interior packages available. I have to take his word for it because I was not born yet (I'm an 81')-Brad

A non running 3406 and a 13 spd fuller is worth what he is asking slpwlker could use one, at least the crank.

Thats what I'm ultimately looking for, an eagle edition with the top of the line interior... So hard to find!!! :(

Sorry, long gone back in early 90's. Had a 400/13 spd.

Tucker Equipment? Sounds like Brayden Tuckers place. NEO ATHS Chapter member, Mack Pack member. Drives a green MH to shows.

That I am not sure of who owns it. It might be him. I know I've driven past there a few times. Each time there were a few cabovers.

I've been by there a few times too, going to Carter Lumber in Lisbon. Right up the road from where the Macks with the tippers are parked. Did have some pics, but I must have deleted them. Nice looking crackerbox in their picture too.

There is a small truck lot on a hill beside the interstate 75 in Mt. Vernon Ky. The owners name is David Thompson. The number is 606 256 4606. He has two Transtar II's right now. There is an ad for one on the Nov/Dec 2012 wheels of time. 4800.00 OBO 290 cummins runs good drive anywhere. I can't get you any good pictures. There is no place to park a set of doubles here. Too far from road to get a passing shot. He has been in business a while. I have seen many nice old trucks set there . He also has a coe pete 362, 300 series Brockway, conventional pete, cabover KW. Maybe more!

I looked in my old International brochures.According to the sales literature at the introduction of the Transtar II's the engines that were available was Cummins or Detroit. Near the end of the run of that model cat engines were an available option. That model being the Transtar Eagle Brougham.
