    M16 Dump Truck For Sale

    Member kmul221 sent me the following. Looks like a neat truck!

    "I stumbled across this 46-47 Studebaker dump truck for sale locally. It would make a good club project. Located in Southern Ontario. It appears to be complete but needs a total re-do. Asking price is $1200 or BO but I'm sure it can be had for a lot less.If interested email me & I will give contact info.I have no finacial interest in this vehicle nor do I know the owner."

    Dick,

    The heavy bumper would place it as a late '47 or '48 model. I had a '46 M-16 dump truck that I bought at a farm sale across the road from my parents house in 1976. It had been sitting in a barn since '58 and had about 51K on it. I paid $110 and sold it 6 months later through TW for $175! [] Cab looks decent, the real question would be the condition of the bed floor and corners. Notice that the box does not have any type of cab protector (mine was a Garwood and did).

    I asked Dick to post this for me as I havn't had time to figure out how to post as yet.Looks like it was used to haul coal or gravel at one time as it has one of those small manual operated shute doors on the box which is hydraulic judging by allthe levers on the cab floor
    & what I could see under the box.The outside of one cab corner has a tin patch & some glass is busted.Even I who know nothing of heavy truck values or details about them know it's way over-priced,but it's been there a long time & if interested one could always try.

    I have a 46 with a dump bed on it, the sides are about 1ft tall and it looks alot better than that. My fosterparent took one piston and rod out out to avoid more engine damage especially to the crankshaft and it last ran about 15yrs ago with the piston missing and i have the missing parts for it and it is red and black and needs repairs to the frame work for the bed as it has a rusted out place and a hole in the right render but it seem to have most of the paint on it. I can prob still get it to run and will sell it when i have time to do so and will also clean it up and i have a 52 2ton truck with a Big six from a 48 truck that only had 48 thousand miles on it when it was installed and has been rewired from bumper to bumper and the worst thing that needs to be done is the bed needs to be replaced, but everything works and i want $2500 for it.

    Dick, it's too bad that the truck is where it's at. As I've mention before, I'd really like an M5 (or M15), but if the right M16 made itself available in the Southeast, I'd be interested. I can just imagine the cost of shipping that truck from Ontario to Florida... [xx(]
