Allen and Joan Blakeman’s 1210D 4x4 Campermobile (IH’s version of the ubiquitous camper special) was ordered with just about every option. This included the 392 V-8, automatic, factory-approved winch, AC power steering and brakes, camper package dual tanks, and all the comfort goodies. Only a few boxes on the options list were left unchecked, but the Blakemans weren’t the ones who originally checked those options boxes. The truck was ordered by a pair of Connecticut brothers who became notorious for a brazen crime spree that included bank robberies, bombings, and murders. By the time their truck was ready, the brothers had been tracked down and jailed. The dealer was desperate to sell, and the Blakemans were happy to find such a highly optioned truck.
