I fixed my Post for you, to indicate the actual Serial Numbers which I looked up in my Chassis Parts Catalog attachment that breaks out the Years of '49-'53 "R" Series trucks, the '61 is a no brainer, all 6E's are '61.

5= 5,000 lb. rated front axle
G3= 15,000 lb. rated rear axle with two speed rear end
P= rear axle ratios of 6.61 and 9.09 (high and low)
S= standard duty brakes

Did you Read Post #6 and re-read the updated Post #3? I am done, I can't make it any clearer.

Thank you for your help. I need it correct for a new Kansas title for each truck.
7751=1953
4556=1961
10282=1953

You must be from a younger generation.
Studebaker used serial numbers and modern cars ,the ones the title bureaus are used to, use VIN numbers.
Studebaker serial numbers are a range of numbers for each year of production.
The is no other identification of the year built else than the range of serial numbers.
Find an old geezer (like me) at your state's tittle bureau that still remembers how things were done in 1953.

I am sorry Brad that you still don't get it, I thought for a moment that you did in Post #10. :ohmy:

The Starting Serial Number for each year is a KNOWN factor per the Parts Catalog, when the vehicle in question's Serial Number EXCEEDS the Starting number for a given YEAR, but is LOWER than the Preceding Year's Starting Serial Number within each Weight of Truck (Model Number) the Year Model IS determined/Verified.

So your '49-'53 "R" Series Trucks ARE 1953, because I checked.

Serial Number: R6 10282, Model Number: 2R6 12 (1953)

Serial Number: R11 7751, Model Number: 2R11 22 (1953)

Serial Number: E40 4556, Year Code & Model Number: 6E40 155, Equipment Codes: 5G3PS (Used for Heavy Trucks) (1961)

The factory parts books include starting serial numbers for (nearly) all model years. Model years for some, like the 1949-53 2R-series trucks, have had to inferred or determined by consulting other sources, like factory service letters or annual truck data books.
