    For sale: 1950 Studebaker 3/4 ton truck, old tow truck

    1950 Studebaker 3/4 ton pick up truck. It runs and drives, but is a project and will need brake job and other maintenance. Winch is PTO operated via lever inside cab and still works. Have newer fuel pump installed, but do have original. $2500 obo, also will consider trade for something with a '50 bullet nosed car(find with other years if they have '50 nose), 57-61 Hawk, pre war, Avanti, convertible, or maybe the right custom.

    No, I been meaning to get some though. Only 1 left out of 18 original.

    As for this Stude, if anyone is interested please let me know cause the property it is on is being sold and I don't have anywhere for it to go.

    Truck looks complete, and could look great posed sitting the weeds as is for framed wall art or post card pictures. I know I have seen much worse. However, with today's economy, even the best funded collector would be hard pressed to pay much above scrap prices for this truck. First of all, there are better candidates and, across the brand spectrum of collectible trucks...more highway speed capable trucks available.

    With that itty bitty champion six, big granny gear box, long bed, heavy-duty frame, wrecker winch & boom, heavy split rim wheels, welded custom bumpers, that poor truck is nearly overloaded just to pull itself down the road. Perhaps it could get by on the community roads of a small flat land town, but put it in the hills and it could be a frequent leader of a parade made up of very impatient and frustrated commuters as it moaned and groaned up a steep hill.

    I love the truck, the look, and its potential. However, you could easily spend twenty or thirty grand restoring it to an eight grand truck!

    Definitely has a lot of potential. I'd definitely be willing to deal on it, and am open to offers.

    Indeed a cool bus, would be awesome to see it restored. Still have the truck for sale. I bought a Ranchero over the weeked to tide me over until I can find that Coupe Express I've been dreaming of.

    That's just rude.
    A decent, almost rust free 2R10 for $1500 is a deal.
    You could take the boom/winch off and have a decent truck for next to nothing.
    Help him sell it instead of making silly post's...

    I agree with Jeff. Back in July, I posted what I believed to be an honest assessment of this little truck. Even then, I was hesitant to post my remarks because I was afraid they could be perceived as rude. One thing that makes it difficult to buy these vehicles at a reasonable price is the cost of fuel. Time was when a tank or two of gas was not such a big deal. Now, a trip of a few hundred miles is the price of a set of new tires, etc.

    I would recommend attempting to sell locally on Craigslist, local visits (photos in hand) to cruise-ins and car events. Surely, a buyer is out there somewhere. Patience and a little effort will pay off.
