Anyone know who bought this truck?

https://www.proxibid.com/aspr/1949-Studebaker-Grain-Truck/36789271/LotDetail.asp?lid=36789271

Listing says it is missing the trans. I have a four speed out of one that looks almost identical. I did pirate the rear bearing retainer off the trans, and plan to use the park brake handle, but otherwise complete.

Free for the shipping. Also, just in case it is missing other parts, I have clutch, pressure plate and bell housing for that vehicle. All free for shipping, or of course, pick up.

My truck for comparison:

I'm fairly certain that's Iroquois Blue. The one 'Cherokee' I know of that year is a bright red.

Craig is right. Iroquis Blue.

Got my tribes mixed up. And I am from Oklahoma, for pete's sake! Doh!!!

Thanks Ron. We have a lot of fun with this truck. I have used it to haul misc. stuff, fencing, gravel, dirt, sod and a tree with an 800 pound root ball. It gets a lot of attention. Everyone loves the old farm truck.

There was another truck there with no trans either (2R16 I think). It was gray and had VW? turn signals mounted on the front fenders. It was a decent truck from what I could tell.
