Looks like Studebaker made 20 inch wheels look COOL way before the boyz in the hood started putting them crazy 20 inch chrome wheels on there rides . .
If i did`nt have just a one car garage in the cities i`d look at this deal .

That truck looks damn tough! I've never seen that rolling stock on a "regular" Studebaker M series.

I'm not sure I've seen an M series like that. When I lived in South Dakota I saw several R series one tons with a long bed. Many had the tailgate modified for hauling grain. I remember one in Aberdeen, SD very well because he ran a stop sign and almost hit me!

It's an M15, not the puny little M5 halfton. Of course the M15 with the Champion six isn't much good for anything but farm use. It's a 1 Ton and the wheels are stock.

Matthew,
As the owner states in his ad, the wheels are 20" but he has the 17" wheels to go with it. These trucks came originally with 17" wheels. Look closely, those 20"ers would scrub the fenders on a turn! You may not remember, I had one of those I sold to Fred Martin who restored it and I think it now belongs to a member of the So.Ga chapter.

Well maybe it was the 1 1/2 tons that came with 20" wheels? I thought you could get an M15 either way. But I could be wrong. :)

I believe that truck in the photo should have the spacers between the fender and the body if it came with 20" wheels originally.

Now that is a great looking truck. Gotta love it. It would look better, however, if it was sitting in my driveway.:rolleyes:

I had a 1945 m15a whitch came with 20in. wheels,Mac Believe they had larger wheel cutouts for the 20in. but same fender, could be wrong.
