1948 International Harvester Pick-up KB-2 photographed 22 May 2011 at a Classic Car exhibit in St-Lambert, Quebec, Canada

Original photo processed in PaintShop Pro v9. A duplicate layer was created and converted B&W. A mask layer was added and modified to allow the coloured image of the truck to show through. The B&W layer was then darkened and blurred to lessen its impact.

Camera: Canon EOS 5D; Lens: Canon EF-24-105mm f/4.0L IS USM; f/4.0 @ 1/500 sec; ISO 400; Focal Length: 45mm

The KB-2 was a 3/4 ton pick-up that came with an 82-horse flathead six engine. They were 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”.
