View Full Version : Another M-15 C-9 on e-Bay

I vaguely remember seeing this truck before, but there is a rare 1945 M-15 with the military C-9 cab for sale on e-Bay. No motor or transmission, but the truck is in decent shape and worth saving. Most of the unique items appear to be there; the swing out windshield, top mounted wipers, the steel glovebox and the right door panel.

With it being undriveable and with no steering column, can you imagine the shipping charges??? [:0]

This one is a couple of hours south of me (actually, everything in the US is south of me :D). It got one bid last time for $500 (I believe from my friend John Wilson).

I'll probably be selling mine. Not a C9, but it's an M15A-28...1946...short, 128" wheelbase. Fits in a standard garage (height, width and length)Only missed your birth year by one, Mr. Biggs :D.

Genuine McKinnon Studebaker Thunderbolt V8 (valve cover decals ;))

http://farm1.static.flickr.com/251/448431087_533da5431c.jpg

I've gone completely through the brakes (shoes, cylinder kits, hard lines, flex lines, hardware where needed). New wiring. Synchro Chevy truck 4 speed. Near new front tires. Serviceable rear tires. Needs new wood on the original Edwards bed. Rare 20" Budd wheels (comes with 3 extras).

$4,500 to a forum member. I can probably deliver as far south as San Francisco for gas money in late May.

We had one, but with a custom bed to hold a welding unit. Local cop found it in the woods about 6 miles from me, and had it towed back to my place. People who saw it said it was used at the old military airport across the street from me. Still have the pop out windshield. Town, via neighborood real estate woman forced us to scrap it. It had HUGE wheels. We called it Butt Ugly.

The garage where I have it now has a 7' x 16' roll up door. I have my car trailer on one side and this truck on the other. The car trailer takes up more than half the width of the door.

I might find space in my garage for your beautiful M-15; but, Dick, do you think your truck would survive driving it back to Massachusetts? Would my body survive being bounced around for 3,172 miles along I-90, I-80, and I-95? Would my marriage survive if I brought my wife along for the trip?

Gary,

That trip would put more miles on Dick's truck than my 1946 M-16 fire truck has accumulated in its lifetime. :D

Once you get it, set it up to pull the trailer you are going to buy.

I've never felt cramped in a T or C cab. Sure, they're not the Cowboy Cadillacs of today, but I drove Pete to South Bend in '97 and never felt like I was boxed up.
Now, the M-16 I had for awhile - even tho I never drove it, it was obvious I was gonna be uncomfortable with any distance.
BTW, Pete still sports his original bench seats.;)

[:o)]I guess that one reason I got so involved with Champs was that I actually "fit" in them better. I'm comfortable driving Mr.GreenJeans too, but I always come home with this black mark on the bottom of my shirt. I need to redo his seat because the p.o. had the original bench seat over-stuffed to make up for his lack of physical stature....not a good thing when the BCF is critical.[:o)]

Forgive my stupidity, what is a T-cab? Really dumb on trucks. As far as the front goes, no idea how it happened. When discovered, it was parked (abandoned) in the woods (no joke) about 3/4 mile from Bill & Hillary's house, the nose was up against a tree. They pulled it out by it's ass, and dropped it in my driveway. Just as you see it, it sat at my house for two years, then the friendly real estate people were trying to sell a house, and called the town. I was accused of repairing and selling automobiles. Building inspector came, and was going to fine us for having "dangerous" liquids on premises. My 55 gallon empty barrel of Studebaker oil, assorted cans of other Studebaker liquids, and other flamable materials. ... Haze Cream, Thunderbolt Motor Conditioner, Kleen Treet, Chrome cleaner etc.

Bldg inspector was a jerk, he had to be told by the Chief of Police and the FD and Rec. departments that we made their shirts.

It became a Mexican standoff, and at the time Butt Ugly was the fourth Studebaker on premises. So we made a deal, the truck went, we keep making shirts.

It would not give up it's grille, steering wheel or dash. Went thru 6 sawzalls blades trying to save grille, and no steering wheel puller would pull the wheel. I still have the windshield though.
