1948 International KB-5 1.5 Ton Truck on E. 3rd St

Written by Ken Altes

Great find on E. 3rd St yesterday. Sturdy and cheap, they made almost 76,000 KB-5s from 1947 to 1949. Cost $1455 new.  More specs here.  I noticed I could see a bright engine block through the front grille, deciding it was not a runner. Then, I found a radiator mounted behind the cab.
