Studebaker US6 found...

Post by Jonas Smith »

In chasing down a IHC lead, I found this Stude sitting out. It actually looks pretty straight and rust free, and all the little gauges and tags are still installed in the dash, still has a good seat in there also.
Unfortunatly the frame was extended about 2' and it was severely overloaded as evidenced by the bent rear suspension parts.
Might be interesting to get a set of rear springs out of a 1.5 ton truck, and a M105 trailer bed, grab one of the tandem axles, and make it into a 4x4.....

Nice straight cab

Now if I found that, and it wasn't expensive, I'd just haul it home and file it away somewhere.

I'm sure someone would want it, cab, drivetrain, some suspension and driveline.....
