  The International K and KB series are trucks that were produced by International Harvester, the first being the K introduced in mid 1940. They are best known for their durability, prewar design in a postwar era, and low price. 

  The K-5 and the 2-speed rear axle KS-5 replaced the D-30 and DS-30. The K-5 series had a basic rating of 1½ tons, but could be rated as low as ¾-ton or as high as 2-tons depending upon operating conditions. The HD-232 engine was replaced by a redesigned Green Diamond GRD-233.Horsepower was up substantially from 81hp to 93hp.In mid-1947 the K-5 was updated slightly with a new grille and became the KB-5. The KB-5 was International’s best-selling model. With a 2-speed rear axle it was named the KBS-5.

  This 1948 International KBS-5 stake truck has been collector-owned for over 30 years. It was subject to a beautiful frame off restoration and presents in fantastic shape!
