I still have my IDI 94 with the 7.3. The "International Harvester" name was not used. IH nearly went broke in the 80s and the truck division became "Navigating the Stars" that was then shortened to "Navistar International."

Been a great truck but the 7.3 IDI turbo does not have the low-end pulling power of my 1992 Dodge Cummins. The Ford is a much better riding, and better built truck. 7.3 turbo, 4WD, extended cab, 8' bed, 4.10 axles, and E40D trans. And yes there is a small computer for the trans. It would take one heck of an EMP to knock it out. If there was one that strong - I suspect I'd have other thing to worry about.

There are still diesel Rabbits around fairly cheap on the East Coast - or something equivalent. When I moved from central NY to norther MI two years ago - I had one diesel 1.5 Rabbit and two diesel 1.6 Jettas to get rid of. All in good shape and they went cheap. Pair of 1991 Jettas with no rust and ran perfect. Started fine too - just have to keep the glow plugs working. Jettas got 48 MPG on the highway. I also had a 1981 Chevy diesel Chevette that got 45 MPG and was a much nicer vehicle then the Jettas. That sold for more money then any of those VWs. Had a 1.8 Isuzu diesel. I lived in a farming area near Cooperstown, NY. The Amish were buying up diesel Rabbits just for the engines and then scrapping the cars. When I moved 800 miles to Michigan- the only small old diesel I kept is my 1985 Isuzu P'UP 4WD mini-truck with a 2.2 diesel and four speed manual trans. Getting rusty but the most useful vehicle I ever owned.
