1947 International KB7

This truck was also manufactured at the International Truck Co. on Sherman Ave in Hamilton. The Engine is a 296 blue diamond out of Detroit. The Truck was in Service till the seventies and was converted to a 625 gallon tanker. The trucak had several owners and ended up in at a Wrecking Yard in Pembroke ON and left outside for 8 years.

Keith Green purchased the truck in 2012 and so far to date (with the help of Joe Nagy at Frid and Nagy Auto Body and Russ Powers ) we have $25,000.00 into restoring it.
