I am plan on restoring a 1964 loadstar this winter that was purchased new by my grandpa. It only has 40,000 miles but it will need a few things. Where is a good place to purchase parts? I will need a driver's side window, seals, etc. Also I would like to add power steering, how hard will that be

NAPA still has many parts available for that truck. My son has one with a grain box in good usable condition. The window glass can be made by any good glass shop if you have the old one for a pattern. But the doors and glass are the same on the travelalls and the pickups of that same vintage (1963 - 1968).

IH trucks (Navistar) does not have anything of that vintage unless you find a small town IH truck dealer who has been stocking this stuff for 50+ years.

The brakes may be your tough problem. The hydrovac units below the driver's seat under the cab were notorious for crapping out. But they are rebuildable. The brakes have 2 single piston hydraulic cylinders, one at the top of the wheel and one at the bottom. They are tied together with a well bent steel tube. That tube may be hard to find, and is not likely to be DIYed without kinking.

If it has the V8 engine 304 or 345, the engine timing is done from the #8 cylinder. The cylinder #s are cast into the intake manifold.

Good luck with your project!!

The door glass is simply flat safety glass, and any auto glass shop can cut that. For seals/weatherstrips, Google search for an outfit called Class-Tech Cars.

A good source of tech info would be the OldIHC discussion boards, linked below. They have a specific discussion board just for Loadstars.
