That green KB series International pickup looks just like the one we had when I was a kid. We had a 49 KB1. It was hotter than haities in the summer and colder than ice in the winter with that tiny little box heater inder the dash. But it always started. When I was sixteen, being a red-blooded american boy, I decided to find out what top end was. Got it up to 60 but the engine was screaming and the front end was so loose I about lost it on the gravel road. After that it was back to the normal 40 MPH top cruising speed. Wish I had it today. Dad traded it for a brand new 69 GMC 3/4 ton with a V6. We were in heaven. Wish I had both of those pickups today. Jim

Dad had a 48 KB 1 IHC that my brother and I hauled a flatbed full of hay home with. Going too fast when we came to the corner for home. Slammed on the brakes and slid the KB 1 sideways. When we were in line with the corner I floored it. We kept the pickup out of the ditch, but the load of hay tipped off! Pulled the pin and threw as far as I could. Told Dad the pin jumped out and trailer went in the ditch. Had to reload the hay, but better than telling him we were going too fast!!
