    '46 M5 pickup - new member

    Newbie on the forum. Just acquired my first Studebaker. A 1946 M5 pickup truck. I got it at an auction. It was sitting in a storage container for the last decade. An older restoration. It needs brake hydraulics rebuilt. I have the gas tank out for repair and sealing and a new fuel sender unit to install. I have to figure out the electrics as it had a 12 volt battery in it, but i can't tell if the system has been officially switched over from 6 volts. It still has a generator. It started right up and runs great. I hope to have it ready for the 4th of July parade. It obviously is painted right for a parade!!! These are pictures from the auction. i have since removed the red letters.
    I've been in the antique car hobby for over 30 plus years and focus my attention to LOTUS and other small sports cars. I used to have Model A and T Fords that i drove everywhere. My intention is to drive this M5 as my 2nd vehicle to run errands and around town. Looking forward to meeting some other Studebaker folks in the Camden County area.
