  • Has this E12 been discussed?

    http://milwaukee.craigslist.org/cto/1029086232.html

    I love the wording here. "I have a 1955 stude that has been left alone, still has the original harverster Engine and tranny."

    "V8, long bed with original steel bed still in near perfect shape."

    First Stude bed I've seen with a totally flat floor in it.[B)]

    1957 Transtar 1/2ton
    1963 Cruiser
    1960 Larkvertible V8
    1958 Provincial wagon
    1953 Commander coupe
    1957 President two door

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

    Almost looks like a rubber mat in the bed.

      I actually think it's pretty cool - the whole truck for that matter. Izzat a nine foot bed???

      But it's the "harvester" engine that would bother me most!

        First time I've heard the 224 referred to as a "harvester" engine...[}]

        Seriously though, if it's an E-12, it will be a 3/4 ton and have the 8 ft. bed, not 9 ft. (but you knew that!)

        On second look at the pics, it has 6 bolt wheels, which were 1 ton wheels - I think the 3/4 tonners had 8 bolt wheels - so maybe it is actually an E-13 (and a 9 ft. bed)?

          I just thought the bed looked unusually long.[] I'd love to have one of those long beasts!

            Yup... I think those 9 ft. P1 style beds are in the same category as Studebaker AM/FM radions when it comes to "value"!

              Hi, Mark,
              quote:On second look at the pics, it has 6 bolt wheels, which were 1 ton wheels
              AFAIK, and I've owned a '55E12 for twenty-nine years, all the E12s had 6-bolt 16" wheels on a Timken rear axle. The early E13s had five-bolt 17" wheels,still on a Timken. The '56-and-later E12s did have eight-bolt Ford/IH style wheels on a Dana 60.

              Bottom line, other than paint, looks stock to me.

                Thanks Jack - learned something new! I have mainly had experience with the '56 and up trucks, and as you stated for 3/4 ton trucks the 8 bolt Kelsey-Hayes wheels are the norm.

                  The ad says...

                  "also some dick took my number 8 off the V8 emblem that mounts to the front of the hood and I am searching for that"

                  I just want every one to know that it wasn't me that took the number 8. Could be Dick Clemens, however.

                    FWIW,

                    Really nice truck and of course, I'm the #1 '55 E12 fan. I gently tried to give him some on-line help, but it's difficult.

                    1. There were separate 6-cyl and V8 front-center hood ornaments, but the ornament is still there. I wonder if he meant the V8 emblems on the sides of the hood?
                    2. Of course Studebaker never installed IH engines. Seller says some local Stude folks assured him that's what he had. Who knows what found it's way in there? Without an engine compartment pic, we can't say him nay. I did describe the differences for the seller.
                    3. Of course, an E12 is a 3/4t, but again, some local told him, 'you've got a 1-ton rig there.'
                    4. Wonder if the added horizontal line is pin striping or some stick-on chrome?
                    5. Do we have any C-cab experts in the vicinity of Spring Green, WI? The seller really wants how-to advice on installing the headliner
