There is a rare 1959 Scotsman pickup that is currently listed on e-bay. As most of you know, the Scotsman was a bare bones creation, yet this one has a V-8 (notice the emblem on the right door) as well as an automatic transmission. I have alerted him it is not a 1955 and that it is a Scotsman (without revealing the rare engine/transmission combo).

Based on the note that CA residents must pay tax, that must be where it is. The owner claims there are over a 100 other Studes that will be sold. Anyone have details on this yard?

Wow! THAT'S a rare one!

yeah - the old nut in Sonora with the 200 Studes. I DID hear from someone, of late, that the guy (or his survivors) was letting some stuff go.
Crazy old coot like me, so I hear'd! Wanted to keep everything Studebaker he could round up. Wasn't too keen on sellin' any of it. Yup, I kin relate![}:)]

Mr. Biggs,

Rebel Stude reported over on the Truck Talk site that this is part of "Studebaker George's collection" in Angel Camp. I just wonder why somone would load up a Scotsman with high dollar powertrain options?

It really IS a sorta goofy truck. It would be interesting to see if it's PO revealed where it went to new.

Yeah, Rebelstude knows just about every truck in this state. A few of them I helped him find, for that matter. I sold him an 8E40 a few years ago. Put him onto a K10 fast express too!

BTW - There's an ex-Texaco tractor-tanker here in Visalia. '55 model, 224 V8, 5spd over and under. Still wears it's original Texaco paint scheme and gets used now and then as a dust-control rig (sprays water on the driveways) at a local dairy!

Mr. Biggs,

If you ever come across a Studebaker road tractor (gas or diesel) that is in decent shape, please let me know.

We have 4 '59 Scotsmans.
The 'runner': short wheel base, flat head six, OD trans
Parts truck: long wheel base, flat six, OD trans
Future Builder: Same as 'runner'
The 4th one; Not sure what we'll do with it: 259, 3 speed, no OD.

Actually, the Scotsman with the Deluxe options was a tad cheaper than a Deluxe model truck.

Apparently no bids last time through. Relisted on e-Bay again with no change in price.

There's a Stude "short" school bus on ebay right now; looks rough, but less than an hour from me... anyone think it's worth saving?

Also on the subject of trucks: I have a friend in town here that has a pretty impressive collection of Studes- some really nice restorables, and some rough parts cars and trucks... has an old Stude ramp truck, and a super-rare Stude mobile-home toter... has buildings with several Studes stashed... and just recently allowed me a privileged peek at his secret junkyard he calls "Studebaker H*ll"... I took some pics out there, incuding, among others, a rough but complete Golden Hawk which I believe he still has the supercharger setup from (boy, that'd be cool on my wagon...) [:p]

I know exactly where this Stude Truck is located. Studebaker George has this truck and at least 100 others. He is on State Route 49 in the Gold Country. By Sonora, Ca Jamestown, Columbia.
Me and my husband met him in March 2006 it was poring down rain there were rivers of mud running through his property. So we wern't able to see many of his collection. His wife passed away and he's getting up there in years. Extremely nice fellow.A quote from him basically there is only one brand of automoble and thats Studebaker it is number one.
If you want his number I will look for his card.
