Today I went into the mountains to get a nice hood and trunk lid for my 66 hardtop project, after loading them in owner shows me a home made trailer from a 56 "C" box this was done about 20 years ago and has held up real well, I guess being a trailer and not a truck bad things don't happen as often, here is a few pictures, all licensed and lights also and rust free.

That is a sweet bed... Straight as an arrow, and rust free....

I just had an idea (maybe not a good idea, but an idea none the less). Has anyone ever put a Studebaker bed on a late model pickup? For example, install that bed on a 2000 F-150 shortbed pickup. I wonder if it would fit....

I would love to have a Stude pickup bed trailer like that.

Yeah Bob, that is rather a nice one. It would look nicer behind my truck!http://serve.mysmiley.net/winking/winking0071.gif (http://www.mysmiley.net)http://serve.mysmiley.net/tongue/tongue0001.gif (http://www.celebrityfashionarchive.com) Though honestly, I'd rather a long bed. Since he showed it to you, what is he asking for it? Not that I can afford it, just asking.

Not a bad idea Milaca. However the bed would look better on my '62 Champ shorty.http://serve.mysmiley.net/animated/anim_64.gif (http://www.celebrityfashionarchive.com)

Judging from the backgrounds in those pics, this guy is quite a Studebaker collector.

I would love to have the tailgate for a work bench.

If you REALLY want a pickup box trailer, I have two to chose from, and I would sell either for $100, or both for $150. Better yet, they're both red!

And mine are 1800 miles closer to you than Bob's. ;) Nebraska's beautiful this time of year, and just a short (three or four day) road trip away.

If I was heading back there this summer, I would try to snag one of those right up! Maybe I'll get there next year for the family reunion

Ya Bob from the back ground it does look that way doesn't it? but I bought the trailer for resale and the pictures are at my shop.

Matt and any one else looking for a trailer these look to be a very good deal if not so far away I would have them in a heart beat.

I had some spare time so I spent it cleaning the surface rust areas but go carried way and ended up painting everything but the inside of the bed.

The trailer is sold and going to New Zealand, it will be full of parts before it goes, I still have one more but not as nice as this one by any means.

Hi Bob: That guy in the mountains (Pine Grove) is about 10 miles from my house. Where is this Studebaker gold mine located exactly? Maybe he will have a part or two for my 55 President Coupe?

And, Kerry and I will see you at the 4 club meet in Stockton later this month.

Dick, Ya I know where Pioneer is and thought about you when I was there getting the trailer, he is all out of Studebaker parts the first trip up I picked up a nice hood and trunk lid for the 64 Daytona, right now they are getting blasted so any work needed will get done, they will be going on my 66 hardtop project, see on the 21st....Bob
