    GOOD GRIEF!...Which one? Out of curiosity, I went to the Portland site and currently there are at least three different '49 Commanders for sale! Portland must have been a Studebaker Sanctuary Region! There sure seems to be many of them still around.

    I have enjoyed you guys going back and forth discussing the pros & cons of this truck. I kept reading the posts, anticipating which one would finally break over and make the purchase. Now that it is no longer available...I don't know if you guys are disappointed or relieved. I hope the truck has landed in a good place. Perhaps the new owner is one of us (forum & SDC member). If not, hopefully he will find us and join in the fun. If it turns out to be a greater responsibility than he anticipates, it could very well reappear for sale again. Then, those seriously desiring such a vehicle...will have another opportunity.

    Dino, I do remember that. Nice Hawk!
    If I had a place to park/store this truck I would have snatched it up. That being said, I do not have a farm and have nothing to haul in it. It would have just been a great truck to take to local shows. With only 30K miles I would guess this truck still has a lot of useful life and would be best purchased by someone who can use it for what it was built for. I would love to see it go to someone like yourself. Keep us posted on the status of your fence sitting.

    I am the one he responded to. I decided against buying it because I would have to pay to store it.
    He told me that all it needed was a brake job and a new clutch. It only has 30K miles on it and it was always stored indoors. It was always well maintained and was a dependable work truck. It does not have a crane.

    This is going to be interesting, early on I submitted 4 questions (very easy one's that would provide the finial data to solidify the purchase offer)....he never responded. BUT he did answer a west coast location persons questions??? I guess he just does not like mid west folks. (?) I hope this works and keep me informed, its a great truck and it should get an equally good home!! Sherm / Green Bay 63R1089 P.S. "jetboat" I sure wish I had a jet boat for use on the Green Bay water (I have a 22' 'toon' with a 50 hp E-rude.....not quite enough to get across the bay when the wind spins around!!!

    Interesting how a "2 Ton" can have a GVW of 8 TONS, and my "1 Ton" can can have a GVW of 5 Tons!
    I seem to recall my 4E40 (V8) with a 171" WB and hoist weighs around 6800 lbs wet. A 2-ton jack has no problem lifting either end.

    The tonnage weight classifications were established in the 1930s when those really were pretty close to the amount such trucks could carry. They got codified in DMV fee schedules and our language -- but are really obsolete today and no longer used by most DMVs.

    Well that was one of the easy questions I ask him......ID plate data on the drivers side seat riser.....we would have been able to 'size out' a good guess on weight. Of course there would have been some 'fudge' for the bed and don't forget those wood side add a good extra amount of dead weight, but I bet we could get in the ball park! At this point it is a good thing it does NOT have a hyd. hoist system...no extra weight needed! Sherm (still fussing) Green Bay / 63R1089

    Well jetboat I'm German so I have cast iron toes, I would be honored to be bested by a fellow Stude truck lover, a big Stude saved is NEVER wasted. I was hovering at the last minutes and decided to hold my powder and see if it would appear again on E bay or some other 'truck site'. For the truck to work for me I would need to put a hoist under the bed (more $$). It seems you west coast located folks have the value edge on us fly over folks taking delivery charges into the outlay cost department. Does anyone want to chance a sell value on this unit (NOT counting the transport charge)? Sherm / Green Bay 63R1089
