That truck now belongs to my buddy John Caskey here in Omaha,as a matter of fact it is hybernating right next to my 63 Daytona this winter. The cab is sitting on a Chevrolet dually chassis with 454 engine.

Man, I love that truck. What a way to get a race car to the track, or to get any car anywhere.

Saw that truck for sale a while ago and wished I had the money and space for it. if I remember correctly it has a Chevy engine in it I think. I'm sure Frank knows. it is a great truck and would look really nice on the road hauling a Studebaker

How wide is the bed on that thing? It looks a little goofy being so much wider than the cab. Are cab forward trucks unusually narrow?

Look at the width of the bed compared to the dual tires. It looks to be at least 6 inches wider than the rear track. Must be at least 8 feet wide?

Although the bed appears too wide it is standard truck bed width. What makes it look funny is that most if not all truck cabs back then were so narrow plus 1 ton dually chassis are probably narrower than a medium duty truck.

A little art deco sheet metal flashing around that bed would do wonders for the looks of that thing. ;)

Ditto StudHawk60... or even some faux art deco paint scheme on the side. Great looking truck regardless.

Was this truck originally built by Steve Schumacher from Colorado?

Certainly possible, but Steve is no longer with us to ask. Maybe someone from the Conestoga Chapter up there would know.
