1947 International Harvester KB3 Pickup pre-war
1947 International Harvester KB3 pickup. This is a very rare, very complete pre-war truck. It was actually used by the city of Bozeman Montana as a utility truck many, many years ago, see pics of doors. It has killer patina and is very solid, no rot at all. Due to its age, it is sold with a BILL OF SALE ONLY.
This would make an incredible builder for a resto mod or modern chassis swap. The orginal metal and patina is one of a kind!
International KB3 Pickup
The International K and KB series are trucks that were produced by International Harvester, the first being the K introduced in mid 1940. In total there were 42 models, 142 different wheelbase lengths and load ratings ranging from 1/2 ton to 90,000 lbs. They are best known for their durability, prewar design in a postwar era, and low price. The followup to the K, the KB, was introduced in 1947, with the characteristic difference being a widened lower grill appearing like "wings". Between 1947 and 1949 122,000 KB-1 and KB-2 trucks were sold.The KB series was subsequently replaced by the L series.
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.
