    Default 1969 D body

    The 1969 International is known as the 'D' series as 1969 was when the body design changed from the 'round' fender 'C' body, to the 'square' body that continued through the remaining years of production.
    While there are some 'C' body trucks registered as a 1969 truck, they are trucks that didn't get sold before the year changed. I have a 'C' Travelall that showed production dates of April 1968 on the back side of the seat covers and on the back of the speedometer. Final assembly happened before about September of 1968 but the truck wasn't sold or registered in CA until May of 1969 so the state consideres my truck as a 1969 truck. Techinically, if your truck had been sold in 1968 even though it is the 1969 'D' body model, you could have a 1968 registration. The 1200 designation just means the spring load capacity is rated as a 3/4 ton series. The 1100 would be for the 'heavy' 1/2 ton springs. The 1100 series will have the 5 bolt wheels while the 1200 series will have the 8 lug wheels.

    The 1x00D (1000, 1100, 1200, 1300, 1500, etc) was built from October 68 to Sept 69 as the 69 production model. As Bill noted, 69 was the first year of the D body series.

    The 1970 model was 1x00A (same number as in 1966) and briefly in 1971 there was a 1x00B (same number as 67), and then early in 71 that got changed to 1x10. This coincided with the introduction of the model 810 Scout II. The 810 designation was soon dropped, but it did trigger a model number series change.

    Another number series occurred in the 74 production year, when the half ton trucks were renamed 100, and the 3/4 thru 1.5 ton were called 200, so a 200 truck could be all sorts of different setups.

    In 75, the 150 replaced the 100, 200 stayed essentially the same. The body styles are almost identical, but the frame changed substantially in 74 except on the duallies, and the engine/transmission was moved back 6 inches, all for weight distribution.

    I mention this in case you need parts, because at first glance they look the same. Often they are, but some parts are different, like the rear axle housings having different spring perch widths. The 74 and 75 models also have disc brakes in the 1/2 and 3/4 ton sizes, but not in the larger sizes.

    It would fit, but you would have to modify the cab mounts. The 73 used the same frame as the 68.
