All too often I queue up eBay and Craigslist finds, but never get the time to write about them. As I’m rich in finds, but low on time, we’re going with quantity over quality today.
(And to be honest, was the quality ever that great?)
This IH Pickup with a utility bed and shell will be sold by the time you read this. As I type, it’s a mere $1,584, which would be too much for a “ran when parked” special, were it not this burly of an IH.

(see above for picture) Keeping it late-60s IH, we’ve got this fncking superb Travelall. It was on eBay some time ago, so either it failed to sell or the buyer flaked. Either way, the overall look of oversized tire plus lift(?) is perfect. Four speed plus V8 plus rust in the typical spots. A little over $3k right now.

I contend faded van mural art is better than originally pristine van mural art. Here’s a ’76 Ford van known as “Cool Blue” according to its etched glass windows. Shag, interesting seating, groovy stripes, stained glass sunroof. Oh yes.

I was into truck cars before they were cool. Seems like everyone these days wants an El Camino or Ranchero. Hell, even a Rampage or Durango doesn’t get autohipster elite cred. A Scamp, however, represents the pinnacle of “I have to tell everyone what it is” haughtiness. 2.2L 4 cylinder and manual trans for potential, “sitting in barn for several years” and specific mention of “as is” to drive home the hopelessness.

Tithonus is a Greek Titan with a Wikipedia entry. Apparently Land Rover Defender 110 Panel Wagons are also nicknamed “Tithonus”. We’re talking about a mil-spec, diesel, manual 1985 Land Rover D110 here. It’s got a host of cool mil-spec goodies and was modernized with newer seats and endo/exocage. Current bid is $6k, but reserve is unmet. Would love to see it put to use as a camping rig rather than just hoarded as a “collectible” by someone with too much money.
