IHC Light Line Model Numbers

It has long been my desire to get a single listing of various IH light line model numbers and what they mean published,
so here it is.
With a little (lot) help from our friends: Howard Pletcher, Bennett Moe, and Crismon’s.
And a little note about Crismon’s book. Even though it was taken out of print, a year or so ago, there is a newer version
available again.  Please check with http://binderbooks.com
This listing is under constant updating, so please bear with us.
The letter identified the model year or years of a particular version, the number the size of the truck.

After going through most of the letters from A to S between 1930 and 1956, the series started over with A for the 1957 Golden Anniversary
models and went as follows until the end:
A-100, 1957, ? ton, Golden Jubilee Edition
A-110, 1957-58, 1/2 ton
A-120, 1957-58, 3/4 ton
A-130, 1957-58, 1 ton
A-140, 1957-58, 1-1/4 ton
A-150, 1957-58, 1-1/2 ton
B-110, 1959-60
C-110–1961-62
C-1000–1963-64
D-1000–1965
1000A–1966
1000B-1967
1000C-1968
1000D-1969-70
1010-1971-73
100-1974-75

When IFS was introduced in 1961, it was designated a 100 model to distinguish it from the 110 model to distinguish it from the 110 model
with the I-Beam axle rather than being intended as a light and heavy model situation.  Early IFS’s did have a  slightly lighter rating so
the 100 was lighter than a 110, but in later years, the 1000’s and 1100’s had exactly the same weight ratings.
In 1963, all model designations were multiplied by 10 to get the models 1000 through 1500. In 1971, the 10 was added giving models 1010
through 1510. Initially it was 1010A, but the A was soon dropped.
Finally, in 1974, the model designations changed to 100 for the 1/2 Ton, 200 for the 3/4 Ton, which could be optioned up to the 1 Ton
rating so there was no 300, and 500 for the "1 1/2 Ton" which really had a GVW of 13,000 to 15000# –much above 1 1/2 tons. (The 140 series
had disappeared in the early 1960’s.)
