Jewell...Last Saturday I looked at a bullet nose in Richmand, KY and it was nearly as rough. I have the Studebaker illness and will eventually have a bullet nose however not that one. It was a 51 two door sedan advertised as a 49. There was so much vehicle rusted away that the body surely was structurally sagging-spreading (doors were off). There were, I think, two glass sections not broken. Slim pickings even for a parts car.

Somebody please give that Guy a battery Cap, so he can drive it away! That thing is amazingly Complete right down to 3 of the Hub Caps, Loud Dual Horns and Batt. Hold Down! :ohmy:

One has to wonder if they reinforced the frame when they made it into a pickup. Once they cut the top off then all the body integrity was solely the frame. Wonder if the frame flexed when they put a load in the bed?

Wow an extremely rare 1950 Studebaker Commanchereo-camino. It's obviously a former military vehicle, probably Navy since it's blue and most likely got shot up in Korea before being civilianized and used as a farm truck. If I didn't all ready have three 1950 Champions to build, this could be for me. Wonder if the guy has a camper shell for it?

The intended pun is just too much.

Ray, The good thing about a 50 or 51 is there are plenty around and not priced to high. Take your time and you will find the right car.

Merry Christmas, Mark

With that long stroke engine and overdrive transmission, it made a pretty good pick up truck.
