Late 1964 serial numbers are unusual ...

Hi Pam:

Your serial number is original to the serial number plate, which has been removed and reattached to the trailer as indicated by the empty rivet holes in the four corners. The raised frame around the serial number plate is a 1960's era feature of many International trim level trailers, although yours is rectangular gold and all the others I have seen are a bead of round aluminum. Your gold frame may have replacee the aluminum frame when the serial number plate was reattached.

The sequence of your serial number does not match those used at the beginning of the 1964 model year or at the beginning of the 1965 model year. I've recently seen another unusual 1964 serial number, 141 S 51933 / 6403, on a trailer made in March 1964. So I'm thinking perhaps the California plant deleted the "6" indicating the 26' trailer length when they apparently reformatted and rearranged serial numbers in the later part of the 1964 model year.

In any event, your trailer is a 1964 California built 26' Overlander with the top-of-the-line International trim. With a year or two of effort, it can be brought back from rough diamondhood to its former glory.

As others have mentioned, don't throw anything away without first offereing those "old parts" to others, who may be looking for parts for their 1964 or near year trailers.

Hi Mr/Ms Pumpkin. I know this is an ancient post, but if you're still willing to photocopy and mail your manual, I'd really love a copy. Problem is I live in Canada. Email me with your thoughts. Thanks.
