1941 International Model K Pickup Truck
The “modern” era in International truck history, following the '30's when the “C' and “D” lines were produced, was entered in 1940 when the company introduced its K-line. It comprised models ranging in size from half-ton pickups to giant six-wheelers capable of handling the largest cargoes then permitted on the highways and hauling of heavy loads over severe off-highway terrain. Production that year reached 86,626 trucks.
Before all models of the K-line were in production, however, International began, at the request of the federal government, to design and manufacture all-wheel-drive military vehicles. From December 7, 1941 until 1943, when civilian truck production was resumed on a limited basis, the company concentrated exclusively on building military trucks, armored half-tracks, gun mounts, shells and other articles of ordnance.
This is a nicely restored IHC Model K pickup. It has a straight body with beautiful maroon paint. A wood bed floor with polished stainless strips has been added to the bed floor. It is powered by the 213ci 85hp Flathead with a 3-speed manual transmission. This is a nice truck that any truck lover would be proud to drive and show.
