Here are the pictures. It looks like a trailer from a Studebaker truck bed. I have one similar.

1949 - 1956 1/2 ton truck bed. The rear bumper was a fairly rare option.

Is it true that 50% of the Studebaker trucks built since 1949 are still in service? :D

I think your answer is pretty simple, you asked how to I.D. a Studebaker Trailer, the answer is that it is NOT a Studebaker Trailer, it IS a Utility Trailer, MADE FROM from a Studebaker Truck!

If it has no title, your State can probably assign it a State Motor Vehicle Dept. Serial number sticker, and a title and License plate based on that, since it will have no Serial Number without the Cab. It will be classed as a "home-built Utility Trailer" or some similar language.

The year should not matter, but if you wanted to be sure, you would measure the inside of the bed width, because there were early and late versions of the same bed (box). This IS however a 8 foot Long bed. All Studebaker 8 Ft. bed pickups can haul 4 Ft. X 8 Ft. sheets of plywood, sheetrock or whatever material, the later ones just have a bit more extra clearance on the sides making loading easier. [^]

That is a cool "Utility Trailer". Reminds me of one my uncle used to have.

How could you ever tell? Where would you get the data?

I'd guess much less than 10%. Trucks were generally used hard and put away wet. Their survival rate is most likely less than cars of the same vintage.

Sorry, bad joke. I was referring to portions of individual trucks.

Do the pickups have the secret SN like the cars? That could help.
