Real estate prices (at least out here on the West Coast) are going through the roof, so there’s always folks looking for creative solutions. Here’s a nice little split-level shingled bungalow, with a very handsome front porch; perfect for that starter home. Just don’t stay in any one location too long, unless someone has invited you to do so.
I’ve always found these Internationals to be one of the most handsome trucks of the era. robadr shot it, and guesses it’s a 1949 model. There’s no good way to tell, as IH just built their trucks by series, which spanned several years. The KB was built from 1947-1949.
The KB was the successor to the K (1941-1946), which in turn was the successor to the D Series (1937-1940), which is when these newly designed trucks first appeared. Ken Kesey’s famous converted school bus, Further (or Furthur) is the same type.
The KB was available in a huge range, from a pickup to some of the largest heavy duty trucks then available. International’s various six cylinder inline gasoline engine powered the overwhelming majority.
A handsome logo too. This was truly the golden age of International.
The back of the house is a bit plain.
Unlike the front. Well, it’s a bit of a muddle in terms of architectural purity. But I’d love to have that for my front porch.
