A 1971 1210 IHC Travelall Coach owned by Tom Thayer, Fitchburg, Wis. Stageway Coach (Fort Smith, Ark.) used International parts to modify a Travelall into a 10-door vehicle used to ferry business travelers from airports to remote destinations. Original literature dated 1971 sets passenger capacity at 18. The coach has a 392 engine and weighs close to 8,000 pounds. Tom uses it to haul family members at his summer home. “We just want to have fun with it,” he says. “But when you’re driving, you have to think about turns.”
