Historical Data:

The International Harvester K and KB Series are trucks that were produced by International Harvester, the first being the K introduced in mid 1940. In total there were 42 models, 142 different wheelbase lengths and load ratings ranging from 1/2 ton to 90,000 lbs.[1] They are best known for their durability, prewar design in a postwar era, and low price. The followup to the K, the KB, was introduced in 1947, with the characteristic difference being a widened lower grill appearing like "wings". Between 1947 and 1949 122,000 KB-1 and KB-2 trucks were sold.[2]The KB series was subsequently replaced by the L-Series.

K Series[edit]

? K-3 truck


The K models progress from 1 to 14 based upon the load capacity (K1 = half ton, K2 = 3/4 ton, K3 = 1 ton, etc.).

There are no K-9 or K-13 model trucks.

Light duty[edit]

Few differences exist between K-1 and K-2 models as they share most of their mechanical and chassis components. The rear axles in these two models is supported by a single roller bearing. Their differences in load rating are due to the K-2's stronger suspension.
