Features and Specifications
1941 International Harvester KB2
PLEASE READ ENTIRE STORY! THIS IS NOT A CHEAP BUILD. NO SHORT CUTS OR EXPENSE SPARED. HAVE ALL RECEIPTS.
Truck was purchased at an estate auction in November of 2013 after being parked in the barn since 1970. Body was removed from chassis and sandblasted everything underneath and inside the cab. Then everything was painted flat black to protect from rust.
I purchased a complete 2008 Chevy Colorado extended cab for the donor truck. I used the entire chassis, electrical wiring, steering wheel, pedals and dash cluster. The truck is a 2008 (what you don't see) with a 1941 International KB2 body.
If you like a V-nose, split windshield truck this is for you!
The local welding school made all the brackets for the body to frame, fabricated an entire floor pan and body dropped the truck. This truck isn't lowered or on air to avoid any rough rides or future issues. Brackets for the running boards are heavy duty. The tank inside the cab have been removed for safety as well.
An aftermarket WIZARD COOLING radiator was built to fit the V-Nose perfectly. Twin 7" electric fans were installed to help it keep cool.
I installed LED lights for everything - headlights, turn signals, interior lights, tail lights, and tag lights.
Complete truck cab has sound deadening material on roof, floor and doors.
The wheels and tires set this truck apart from the boys with painted steel wheels. I had the wheels sandblasted, then I painted them. These are off of a 1930-1934 Chevy truck. I purchased new center caps, beauty rings and white wall tires - these really make it stand out!
All glass is new, new seals, door regulators work great, doors open and close. Windshield cranks open for extra air and the vent works great too!
The bed floor is a sheet of laminate countertop with a petrified wood look. My wife had the kitchen done in this same type of material and we loved it so much we used it in the truck.
This truck gets looks and compliments every time we take it out. I have put a 1,000 miles on it since completing it a little more than two years ago. The truck has the original ac compressor but no lines or condessor. This is one of a kind. International's are rare, but an International, body dropped on a 2008 Chevy Colorado with old school wheels and tires with a matching spare is one of a kind.
I have recently added bucket seats with custom cushions. The seat shown here is the original seat but redone.
Please feel free to call me with any questions you have - 620-421-2554. No low ball offers or tire kickers please. This was a custom build that was difficult and took a lot of time. Thanks for looking.
