Abandoned Car of the Week

This circa 1947-1949 International pickup was found in an abandoned, but restorable state by Jim Prueter. Following World War II International truck production began with a slightly new design in 1947 highlighted by the barrel-shaped grille sprouting little "wings." The emblem on the side shows that this truck was a heavy duty KB-3 model. In that three-year period International produced 122,000 KB designated trucks. (Photos by Jim Prueter)
