I'd rather walk and carry a Chevy hub cap than ride in a Ferd.
I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you smile

Nothing wrong with that truck! I have a couple Binders myself.
Check out the forums at oldihc.org Some good info over there.

Nothing wrong with an IHC. My father used them for tank wagons as well as pickups until his brother started selling GMC. I have run International Diesels exclusively for many years and currently run about 15 of them. They earn the money so I can buy old GMCs to pay with. I recently bought a 62 and a 65 cabover International like the one I drove a million miles myself. I'm gonna build one out of the two. Looks like yours is very complete and there a re a lot of guys working on similar ones.

I like those old IH's.

A friend of mine had a nice original KB-1.

Is that a KB-3?

Thanks,Guys! The owner says it runs good,hoist works,and,(from the pic's,) looks straight,and rust-free! The box is nice,to boot! That ding in the L.F. fender is the worst of the body,as far as I can tell. It needs tires and brakes. That's a MUST-HAVE,anyway,so, the price is RIGHT!! Looks like it might be fun,trying to find brake parts,but a member of "www.oldihc.org".,has a post on brakes,for HIS '48 KB3! Seller's a MEMBER of "stovebolt.com"!! I've seen some of his posts,in "E-Bay/craigslist",in the "Swap- Meet" forum. . Ken's going to transport the truck to me in mid-April! Fair price,too! I'll link a video,as soon as It gets here! Thanks for the Kind Words!

Boy,do I have my work cut out for me! I should've checked parts availability for these things,before "taking the plunge"!! I just contacted a few of the IHC specialty parts stores,and they mostly cater to the Scouts and Travelalls. That'll teach me! Next time,I'm going with a G.M. project! IHC parts are CRAZY expensive,besides! on my '67 1000 1/2 ton,I needed a distributor cap, (Delco).The parts guy,(back in '86),quoted $32.50. The cap looked like a small block,(302) Ferd,so I paid for the Ferd cap,($4.50)and it fit! On a Delco distributor!! Like AMC an Studebaker,they were good at weird swaps! Looks like I'll be doing a bunch of parts swaps on the '48,too. I'll let you guys know,on the "Tons of Fun" forum. THANKS!!

Willy,,, I believe I know where you found this truck..... Nextech classifieds out of Kansas, no? I revisit this site from time to time and the most recent showed a Corn Binder very much like yours. Could be there's another just like it, maybe... Also, Willy, in your photo bucket stands a proud Studebaker big truck. Studebakers are my (secret passion). I own a 1962 1.5 ton from Iowa. It is a 14' flatbed w/hoist, a grain toter. 259 2bbl. V8 w/ 4 speed. Also own an 1959 Oklahoma half ton short box Studebaker Transtar PU. 4bbl. Stude 289 w/3sp.overdrive. This truck is currently undergoing restoration. Excuse me, I believe that I am beginning to pirate this fine GMC site. My apology. Thank you, readers, for showing latitude, kindness and sympathy towards my wandering and wayward self. Charley.
