This truck has a very clean and very straight body, cab has not been chopped and no rust to cut out. Just a little bit of surface rust here and there from the truck being left in primer. Runs and is currently driving on the road, very little left to do to finish up this really cool truck. Check out the video and pictures. Truck title is clear and it is titled as a 1947 International KB1.

The nose of the truck is on linear bearings mounted in the front clip, the whole nose moves away from the cab about 4 inches then tilts forward on a set of hinges. The hinge pins can be removed, along with the actuator pins to take the nose off the truck. The headlights and turn signals are wired with GM style connectors. Takes about 5 minutes to take the nose off.

Cville Classic Cars was tasked with working through some mechanical bugs and the truck now runs, drives, stops and operates as it should. The truck is NOT located here at the shop but can be arranged for viewing. If buyers are interested in finishing the project with any personal touches or paint/body work, Cville Classic Cars is happy to arrange that.
