The price is ridiculous. I sure do like it though. I think a shortened version with a single rear axle would be perfect around here. ;) It'd be fun, that's for sure!

Great truck but in looking at the photos one wonders how many GIs were seriously injured on the slide-out bracket for the windshield. OUCH!

This truck use to belong to Asa Hall. I've saw this truck in person about 25 years ago and Asa told me the exact story as in this ad.

I can't access e-bay here at work, but I saw it mentioned that this was Asa's former truck. If that is the case, it brought $10,000 at the auction a mere 14 months ago. I have some pictures of it at the auction as well as when it was still in the shed.

Just for kicks I sent the seller an e-mail asking how he arrived at his price. I also mentioned that the BIN price represented a 1150% return on his investment which seems a bit excessive. I would equate his efforts to trying to big game hunt in New York City.

SIGH...

How many years will it be before I'll have any clue about the model numbers and letters?

I always have to look when I see one, b/c I still have no idea what a C/K, 2E, or whatever is.........[V]

Oh well, I'll keep studying......;)

That was actually one of the innovations that Studebaker used with the C9 cabs. (M series cab with swing out windshield) With the windsheild closed, the brackets were safely tucked out of the way. Here's a pic on a civilian 1945 M15.
