  • 1949 2R5 truck restoration.

    My brother in-law wants to restore his father's pick up and would like information on Studebaker truck restorers close to Iowa. He also wants information on obtaining a title. He bought this truck from his father's estate but was unable to find the title anywhere in his father's belongings. I cautioned him about spending any money until he gets a clear title in hand. After this he wants a full restoration to stock. I told him to join the Studebakers drivers club and he is in the process of becoming a new member. Any advice he could get on the restoration and obtaining a clear title would be appreciated.

    Every state handles titles and registrations differently, so hopefully someone from Iowa will respond. But the attorney handling his father's estate might be able to request a duplicate title in the father's name. Then the attorney could sign it over to your BIL.
