first time IH owner

Good morning all I recently purchased a super solid 1949 kb-1 from the granddaughter of the original owner. The truck has been in their family for 70 years and was used for deliveries for a general store they owned in southern Ontario. The truck is mechanically tired and I was really surprised to see how difficult it can be sourcing parts for IH. I need someone to re-build the original GRD 214 and if the cost of restoring the truck to stock is too high, I may sell the truck or choose to hotrod it. I was hoping for feedback and advice on a stock restoration, since this is my first choice. Thanks

Re: first time IH owner

There are often many folks who "change out" their motors. Look to that possibility. How many miles on the truck? Pictures are always appreciated.
