    The K-10 was produced from November 1937 thru March 1940. Total production 1000. They were available with the narrow or wide box as shown above. They could also be purchased as a chassis and cab only. I know of six or seven survivors. They were geared quite low and they used the Dictator/Commander Six so they are not particularly good over the road trucks.

      There was one on eBay last year, pretty solid and complete. Don't recall what it drew, it was less than 2 grand.

      Reading what you wrote, it seems funny that it's called "Fast Transport"[)]

        Considering there were still people using the original mode of tranportation of goods (horse and whatever is attached to it), this would have been fast.

        I think there is a SDC member west of Dallas/Ft. Worth who had one of these in the "outside" collection.

        Going to the ATCA national meet tomorrow in Macungie, Pennsylvania, but I bet there will not be one there...

          Thanks,I am looking at the dismantled one tommorrow.Hopefully there is enough stuff there to put it back together and it will go reasonably.I really want a coupe express but I am too cheap to spring the bucks for one.I havent seen a grill/radiator shroud or a bed in any of the pics and no real description so its a crapshoot at best but still a fun way to spend a Sat.I THINK I saw the rear fenders in one shot but they could be for something else.I will post some pics tommorrow night.Thanks,Steve

                Hi Wolfie
                Don't know if you saw this one, it was on Bill Jackameit's web page:

                http://billstudepage.homestead.com/files/studpg.htm

                You will need to scroll about 1/2 way down the the page to see
                it. A couple of good exterior shots and 1 interior shot.

                  Thanks,Just got back from the auction.Many good deals on parts in my belief.I did not buy the truck,it was a major project and seemed to not have enough pieces.For certain there was no bed,seat,or small parts at all.The engine was stuck and the trans was opened up.It brought $800 so was probably worth the money but needed more knowledge than I even knew how to ask about and in my opinion another good donor truck.The better 41 sedan brought $5300 and the 51 coupe around $3500-4000.The rougher 41's were around $1000 and all the 20's and 30's stuff was about the same.A suppossedly rebuilt 31 commander straight 8 engine went for $75!!Another 30's vintage straight 8 with the tranny brought $100!!The restored 28 ford truck brought $17000 and the hupmobile $12,800.The other ford was still under negotiation when we left.Did score a few parts and loads of old tools and trinkets but nothing major.I will post pics tonight.Steve

                        The 1/24th scale die cast model was created by Liberty Classics, Libertyville, Illinois. Made in China. Available on ebay from time to time and selected outlets i.e SASCO, Studebaker International, in addition the the SNM.

                          don't know if this will help or hurt at this point but the 245 "Commander" six was used in trucks until 1960 (I think?) so a stuck engine is not an insurmountable obstacle if you don't insist on using the original block.

                            I love those wheels[]...
                            Wonder if they would fit a later model (Ccab) 3/4 ton??

                              I love 'em too. The biggest problem would be finding a set. [xx(]
