Classy old trucks never disappoint in their style, simple functions and the reliability of something that was built for a specific purpose…work. GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this highly original 1948 International KB-5 Tow Truck for your consideration. It has been owned for the same owner since the early 1960s. This truck is rock solid! It is powered by its flathead 6 cylinder paired with a manual transmission with a creeper gear that could pull a house over with ease. The truck remains in 6 volt system and the lights, flashers and horn functions properly. The PTO works properly, the boom goes up and down and the cable goes in and out. This work horse may be 73 years old but don't let age fool you, this good ol truck will still win any strong man competition! The truck also has vacuum assist brakes, crank in and out windshield and a new carburetor. The truck runs and drives well and is ready for immediate use and enjoyment.

This truck is definitely something you do not see every day and it commands attention wherever driven. International Harvester is an iconic American manufacturer that was geared toward utility and American work ethic. A truck optioned as the one offered here is a rare find and an opportunity for any enthusiast or collector. Dare to be different.
