Ramhead wrote Because Transtar's II would the International Harvester logo on top. Because this is a regular Transtar and change the one in Gone In 60 Seconds 2.

You use two pictures to guess that all Transtar II must have the logo?
And stop with your "please change it"
You are not a reliable source of info, so you will just have to wait that somebody else confirms.

Bald Eagle's Truck was a 1977 International Harvester Transtar II or a 1977 International Transtar II The Truck was Leased By Ft. Wayne All trucks were the same color in Ft.Wayne's Fleet The Company leased out Trucks to TV Shows & Movies, Local Trucking Company's and Other Trucking Company's So, The Company Found out that They Needed a Truck Donation For the Movie This Transtar Was returning to Ft. Wayne's Yard from a Local Company with Numerous Doge L-700's and L-1000's that the a Local Trucking Company The Local Company had bought there trucks and returned The Trucks to Ft. Wayne The Company wanted to Donate a Fresh Running Truck The Deal Was that If Ft.Wayne Donated a Fresh running truck It would be Featured in the Movie alot and They would have to find a Stunt Double For the Alverez,TX Scene unfortunately They never used a Stunt Double For Bald Eagle After the Movie was done the truck & trailer returned to With lots of Damage according to the someone that was with Ft. Wayne they had to find a Replacement for the truck and the Truck was sold of to Martin Trucking in Death Valley,CA Were the Damage Was fixed to this truck around 1986 The Truck was purchased by Bruhn's Sand and Gravel Company were most of the Trucks Came from in the Movie The Truck and Trailer was used to haul Steal to there construction sites and Bruhn's Sand and Gravel ran this truck up until 2006 after 2006 this trucks current Location is unknown The Deal was with this truck in the movie that if they leased this truck they'd have to find a stunt double for it which they never did They Trucks what was suppose to be Donated was a Tie between this Truck and a 1969 Auto Car A64B If they used the 1969 Auto Car Ft. Wayne told them that they had to buy it for the movie and they wouldn't have to have a stunt double for that truck the truck was ordered on 1/6/77 By Ft. Wayne the truck was powered by a NTC 290 Hp Cummins with a 10 Speed Road Ranger Transmission the truck lest the Factory on 2/22/77 the truck was ordered through a International Plant in Texas, So please Put the year 1977 up there please here's your proof to put they year 1977 up there http://www.stlouisdumptrucks.com/ConvoyMackTruck/BaldEaglesTranstarII.html


.P.s. I Got further in the history behind this truck than the story Dan Bruno Got, and i don't know why they just didn't use this truck for Spider Mike's Character instead of the 1961 Diamond T 921 this truck was alot newer this truck should have been Spider Mike's Truck and Bald Eagle should have had the 1961 Diamond T 921

4x4 23,

With all due respect, please stop posting hogwash on imcdb. You're getting facts so completely mixed up that it is almost comical. It seems to be occurring on multiple posts for multiple vehicles. I trust the errors are in good faith, but what you presenting as fact is far from it. The Bruhn's never owned this truck and they do not haul steel to construction sites.

If there is a moderator following this, please yank this guy's comments on the Convoy threads (if not others). It's doing everyone a disservice and spreading a lot of very false information.
