This 1956 Studebaker Transtar 2E-C4 truck has a 259ci V8 with three on the tree & overdrive. Runs very strong and has no trouble keeping up with todays freeway speeds. Paint is 3 years old. Tires are near new. Brakes are in great shape. Rear springs are strong and re-arched three years ago. The Transtar LONGBEDs are 4" wider than the standard Studebaker trucks. You can fit a 4' x 8' sheet in the bed flat and close the gate. Very rust free with great solid floorboards. Originally a southern California car. This year and model was a ONE YEAR ONLY grill & hub caps and I feel the prettiest of the the Stude trucks. If your looking for that unmolested under 10K nice Stude truck, this is it! This is a good solid truck and the only reason I'm selling it is to make more room in the garage and this is the Studebaker that is the least sentimental to me currently. [:I]

$6000 firm, no deliveries
Located in Vancouver WA USA
13 miles from PDX (Portland Oregon) International Airport

EDIT - SOLD! Thank you.
