    15 years ago there was a short woodie bus in Bozeman Montana owned by a George Rice, if I recall, as I bought my US6 from him. Anyone know of it's disposition as it was a real beauty?

    I wonder if this one will pop up for sale again: http://forum.studebakerdriversclub.c...gslist-6-16-13

    The cab overs were indeed nice looking trucks for their era 1936-40. They were built principally for intra city use ergo Studebaker's use of the name "metro" series to describe them. I had the good fortune to having bought one (a '36) at an auction in Welland, Illinois in the summer of 1981. It was a one-owner truck that had been purchased by the local Studebaker dealer for his own use. Having no place to store it and no money to restore it I sold it soon thereafter. It was later completely restored (image #2). The down side of the cab forwards was that they were the last Studebakers to use a wood framework for their bodies and replacing the wood, which is almost always bad, is a very tedious and expensive proposition. Recently I found a souvenir from my brief ownership of that '36 that I am including below (image #3). I have no idea where the truck is now. If you know tell the owner I have his key!

    Roseville Illinois. It was parked in front of a repair shop. I was through there today but it was gone. I had always heard that their was a cab over truck in my world and now I have seen it. Sometime when I have time to stop for more than a minute I will ask the auto repair shop.

    I agree a fine looking old truck.

    Looking at the background, I'm guessing this is somewhere in Illinois farmland. I pasted the picture in another program, enlarged the sign, and it mainly reads "Studebaker Cab over Engine 1 ton truck." So, the owner obviously knows what he has. Not only is the truck great, but the photograph is a good representation of "Americana."

    looks like it might have "run when parked" fairly recently!
