KB3 international bumpers


Recommended Posts

In the process of collecting parts for a restoration of a 41 K3 Woodie. Oddly, MOST of the parts are not tough to find. Oddly, bumpers, which are usually easy to come by, are hard to find.

 

Does anyone know where one could come by front and rear bumpers for an international Kb-3? They seem as though they would be fairly generic, and very similar to chevy bumpers of the same period. However, there are only three mounting holes in the international and five in the chevy bumpers. 

 

Any thoughts?

The woodie is based on a truck, which came with no bumper because most people buying a working vehicle wanted to build their own, or have a local shop fabricate what they needed, so not many stock bumpers were sold.

That was true for most makes of trucks even into the 1950s qnd 60s, even later. Ford ,Dodge, Chevy were like that too.  The stock bumpers were not strong enough for heavy work  and various needs of a truck owner, so they were made locally to fit the needs of the individual owner. Most trucks back then were work vehicles and very few were used for pleasure or family use.
