  • 25K C cab

    It's a beautiful truck, and it took me 10 minutes to find a few nit picks, but nothing that $100 and a weekend would not fix. You'd be hard pressed to restore one to this level even for 25K, but who'd have thought that Studebaker C cabs would bring this kind of money. Just a honey of a truck that you could use to haul pillows.

    Hi, JDP,

    It is a very nice truck and the 1955 is my favorite C-cab, since I have been driving an E12 for thirty years. Agree it would cost $25k to pay someone to put another in that condition. Just surprised it took you so long to find this one. It has been listed on eBay for months without attracting a bid, so it hasn't brought this kind of money yet. Hope it does; then I can tell my wife what a good investment return my next upgrade will bring.

    thnx, jack vines

        Like Jack said, it has been on eBay regularly in the past 4-6 months without receiving a challenge to the reserve.

        They don't "bring this kind of money" until they ACTUALLY bring this kind of money .

        Beautiful truck. []

            Yes that is some outstanding work on that '55 Pick up! I only saw a few minor things that look at bit wrong like the darker green paint on the Tail light and Tailgate lettering, the wrong beauty rings on the wheels and of course most of us would probably agree that taking "restorer's license" with the hood front and side nameplates was a GOOD thing! They would have looked terrible in bright RED on green!

            You would have to want a pickup pretty badly to pay over $20,000.00 though.

                i know it's been in before, but it has bids now. BTW, this is my first post from my garage using a a USB range extender wireless card on my spare laptop.

                    Looks like they matched the grille to the taillights. Nice touch.

                    Almost as fun as a Studebaker!

                        Yeah - and I'm thinkin' that we picked this thing apart quite some time ago, before it was ever on ebay with this showroom. (Of course, we no longer critique vehicles here any more)

                        All I can say about this thing is "Perfect!" [^]

                        No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.

                            Should the fuel gauge read full with the key off?
                            Just curious.
                            Nice pic's.
