If we assume that sound decreases 6 decibels with each doubling of distance, and the background noise in the environment is 55 decibels, you could theoretically hear the Saturn V from 373 miles. What the author wrote was: "After only two unmanned launches, the third Saturn V took Apollo 8 to the moon." A conical-form interstage would be fitted on top of the S-IC stage to support the S-IVB stage, so it could be considered either a retrofitted Saturn IB with a more powerful first stage, or a stubby, cut-down Saturn V without the S-II second stage. The height difference in the Saturn V and Saturn 1-B is clear in this image.

An interstage would be fitted on top of the S-IC stage to support the external tank in the space occupied by the S-II stage in the Saturn V. It was an alternative to the SRBs..
To increase the moon lander to 50 tons, Saturn V would have had to increase to almost 4,000 tons. I suspect the IB would have been phased out for the Saturn II, and with the cost-reductions already planned for with Saturn, the Saturn II/V system would have seen quite an interesting change.

The mission payloads, from left to right: SA-1, development flight with dummy second stage and payload; SA-4, more realistic dummy second stage and engine-out test
The Saturn INT-20 was a proposed intermediate-payload follow-on from the Apollo Saturn V launch vehicle. The booster consisted of a first stage containing two Saturn V F-1 engines, a second stage containing four powerful J-2 engines, and the S-IV stage from a Saturn I booster. If something of Apollo/Saturn had been retained then pressure would have been great to use it but beyond certain pieces I don't see the Saturn-V being able to survive in the budget given. The Saturn C-3 was the primary launch vehicle for Earth orbit rendezvous. The Saturn 1B second stage, known as the S-IVB, was also used as the third stage for the Saturn V. Edit: Clarity Description.

The two unmanned launches were Apollo 4 and Apollo 6, which both used the Saturn V [1]. If Saturn 1B was the PoR LV, then I'd imagine they'd set things up permanently at KSC for it. TIL that there designs for a rocket even larger than the Saturn V that could boost 1.2 million pounds into orbit. The Saturn V generated a sound level of 91 decibels from a distance of 9384 m. (That number is from the Nasa web site.) K-36 Saturn - V Build & Progress 006.jpg (45.52 kB, 480x640 - viewed 349 times.) It was so large it had to be launched partially submerged and was call the Sea Dragon. Saturn 1B was comprised of an eight-engine first stage using RP-1 and liquid oxygen, and a single-engine second stage using liquid oxygen and liquid hydrogen.
