Description: 1949 International kb2 pickup truck for sale or trade. Fresh restoration of a rare and desirable truck. A long-time vintage truck enthusiast undertook a five year frame-off restoration project. Finished in maroon and black, complimented by a tan bench seat inside. Attention to detail throughout, such as stainless steel fasteners everywhere and finished wood on the underside of the bed too. Wired for fog lights, which can be added by the next owner. The truck presents exceptionally strong inside and out, including a spotless undercarriage. The only cosmetic issue is a run on the top of the dash inside. Starts easily. International harvester company of chicago produced a series of pickup trucks, including the k and kb truck. They are best known for their durability, prewar design in a postwar era, and low price. The KB-22 was introduced in 1947, with a new widened lower grill appearing like "wings". Between 1947 and 1949, a robust 122,000 kb-1 and KB-2 trucks were sold showing the strength of post-war consumer demand and the appeal of International's design and utility in one. For a basic truck, the KB-2 packs a lot of style. It has more chrome on the front grille than most automobiles of the era. KB-2 models were powered by e green diamond six, a 214-cid flathead producing 82 bhp at 3400 rpm and 160 lbs/ft of torque at 1200 rpm. While the peak-torque rpm seems low, consider that the kb idled at only 350 rpm. With 3-5/16 inch bore and 4-1/8 inch stroke. With typical undersquare bore/stroke dimensions and 6.3:1 compression, this was a durable, reliable engine that was easy to work on then--and today. But it was not known for power, so this example has a 233 go replacement engine--provide more torque and noticeably increased performance. The cab design and layout is superior to many of its higher priced contemporaries. It offered an adjustable bench seat and surprisingly complete instrumentation. A glovebox matched the oblong instrument panel. Compared to other 1940s trucks, this symmetrical layout seemed almost sporty. International kb-series pickups were available on both 113- and 125-inch wheelbases, with axle ratios ranging from a tall 3.72:1 to more appropriate 4.88:1 and 5.11:1 gearing. Solid axles front and rear were supported by semi-elliptic leaf springs and lovejoy refillable shock absorbers. For sale or trade. We welcome trade offers for other vintage cars and trucks.
