Default International KB11 rusto-restore

Hello All,

Im Mike from south eastern Oregon, and Im just getting started on an 1948 International KB-11 truck project.

Unfortunately there isnt alot of readily available information on these trucks and it looks like the oldihc.org forum gave up the ghost.

My plans are to leave the exterior the way it is now, but put a deluxe interior in the cab. Swap the gasser Red Diamond 450 for a international DT360, 6speed with OD, and add air suspension.

Ive looked through some build threads on the Diamond Ts here, but will not be doing anything so intense.

Hey Skull,

Yes it is. The story goes that it was an over the road truck until the 60s and then a logging company in Washington bought it and used it until the 80s sometime. It was then brought to SE Oregon to be restored, but the guy had a stroke and sold the farm; this came with it. My friend bought the farm and gave the truck to me.

Ill definitely start a build thread, maybe this fall as im still gathering info and parts.

Thanks
