    58 & 59 Trucks

    Hauled these out of my grandfather's collection today for my uncle and cousin to start restoring. 1958 1 Ton Dually. 289/5Speed OD and a 1959 1/2 (maybe 3/4?) ton 289/3Speed+OD. Both are pretty solid, rockers/steps on the 59 are about gone but everything else is good. I can remember using the 58 bucking hay bales out of the fields when I was growing up in the early-mid 2000's. Both trucks run but need rebuilds. Will be fun to see them get some work started on these.

    '56 Studebaker C-Cab--55 front end temporarily. '64 model 259 V8+4spd

    Those are both fine looking projects. My father in law had a one ton, just like the one you have.It was quite a work horse, hauling hay, cattle grain and wood.

    Both look like good candidates for putting back on the road. I hope it works out for everyone.
