  • Auction in northern Indiana that has a 1946 Studebaker Dump Truck M16

    See the attached link. One item is a 1946 M16 truck with dump bed; it is not running.

    There is one pic of it on the link, green with black fenders. It is hard to determine anything from a single pic, but the absence of rust below the door shows promise.

    If any of you, or know someone, that is interested, please distribute. The auction is on July 22 and is in north central Indiana.

    Note: I am not affiliated with the estate or auction in any way. A friend gave me a heads up on facebook this morning.

    Looks like a truck with potential. I like the 37 Chevy too.

      Looks like the dump bed is just sitting on pallets on the frame.

        I copied the pic into another program where I could enlarge & study it. I'm thinking that this could have originally been a residential Coal Delivery. Back in the day, especially up north, schools, large homes & farms used coal fired boilers. This looks like a "mid-bed," rocker dump. It could back up to a building and dump the coal into a chute that piled the coal into the basement close enough to be shoveled into the boiler stove. Pure speculation on my part, but I think such delivery trucks were common back then.

          In 1976 I bought a 1946 M-16 dump truck that had a Garwood body on it. As I recall, it was 10' long and the sides were higher. I remember coal trucks having higher sides than this.

          To put things in perspective, I paid $110 for the truck at auction. I thought I had done something when I sold it 6 months later for $175.

            Good guess. Some of them had scissor jacks that would elevate the bed ten feet or more. I remember coal deliveries by such trucks to apartment buildings in the inner city of DC into the early 1970s.
