My name is Nina and I am from Germany.
I just bought myself a Studebaker M5 Pickup from 1947.
I really love that car!
Now I discovered that the engine number doesn´t fit the car.
Does anyone know something about it?
That is the number on the engine in the car:
And we found some more numbers... ;-)

We think that it is a 1956 2E 5 for the E Truck. Can someone confirm that?
In Germany the technical inspection agency will have a problem with that engine because we can not find it in our car identification papers.
We also have a dual carburator from Carter with an Offenhauser manifold. Can anybody tell me how much more power it gets with that?
Further I found a picture of a steering wheel that I would love for my M5. Does anybody know where I can find something like that?
