1948 International Harvester KB 5

Green IH Montana Barn Find 12 foot box - Survivor – BiDnBuY

1948 International Harvester K B 5 dual rear wheel, at some point the engine was replaced with a more modern BG241 Int'l I-6 with manual trans. I have 2 bumpers, 2 valence trays, iron grill guard headlight buckets, hood emblems, embellishmentsand extra stainless grille parts. I'm sure that you will want to repair and/or replate some or all of the trim pieces. There is a white gasoil heater behind the stand up driver's seat partition, a swing davit just inside the passenger side rear door, diamond plate steel floor, very little rust on the bottom of the front fenders. Bent pipe racks and rails have been added to the interior for the last owners service station supply business... these can be easily removed. A great candidate for a restoration or resto-mod or even hot rod. Last titled and licensed in Western Montana in 1970's. I can assist you to arrange open trailer transport to your location. You may call to get specific questions answered, propose tradesor to request additional pictures. ken 208 699 0740




From Wikipedia


For the KB-1 thru KB-5, chrome "wings" were added on the sides of the grill, a wrap-around chrome piece on the front hood, a hood ornament and chrome lettering indicating the model designation below the International nameplate on each side of the hood. For the KB-6 and larger trucks, the only external changes were that the Triple Diamond badge was moved to the top of the grille chrome-work, and the model designations were added to the hood-side chrome trim.
