International Harvester Cargostar as we have them listed but I think that this model is actually called Loadstar CO (1800?). I think these should be corrected.

This brochure also states that they were built in UK.

Hmm....
VERY interesting brochure, kegare...however at the time that these heavy trucks were made here, EVERYTHING with an American tag on it was made within the country, with the exception of rebadged cars. I think that what you've found is a European brochure for the truck sold there, assembled from parts there and the model name for it there was a Loadstar CO 1800. Interesting find though.

The brochure might indeed be for the UK, but here are CO-1800s registered in the US.

Here is the US brochure for the Cargostar, very hard to find on the Internet in its original shape:

It seems that 'Loadstar CO-1800' was only applied for trailer trucks?

That is what it seems. Most Cargostar's we have on the site are mostly six-wheeled trucks, so I think that the CO 1800 name should apply to the trailer trucks. never noticed that before.

In 1963 International brought out the new CO-Loadstar series of medium-duty tilt-cab trucks. The cab was all-new and entirely different from the Diamond T-based CO-series cab.
The mid-1970 Cargostar, with its new wider cab, replaced the CO-Loadstar line.

The first generation CO-Loadstars were built from 1963 thru 1969. The wide fenders are a giveaway on this. In 1970, the Cargostar--a CO-Loadstar with a 10" wider cab--was introduced. The Cargostar has a lip only a couple inches wide outside the cab. The 10" patch in the center of the cab is obvious too.
The early Cargostars had a grille similar to the CO-Loadstar. In 1973 they got this Transtar-style grille.
The model designations were CO-1600 for the CO-Loadstar, CO-1600A for the first generation Cargostars, and CO-1600B for the later model (along with 1700, 1800, and 1900 models).

I say this Kojak truck is a Loadstar CO with narrow cab, wide fenders and IH emblem above the grille.
