  • Build Sheet Stupid Question

    I dug out the build sheet for the truck for the "birthday" thread.

    It's a Scotsman and true to it's name, has very few options. Overdrive, oil filter, directional signals, and L.M. Short Mirror.

    My dumb question is: What the heck is an L.M. Short Mirror?

    Also, "How to ship" is labeled DIX. Was that a shipper for Studebaker? Possibly railway? The truck was delivered new to Waycross, GA which is a railroad town. About 60 miles from where I live.

    EDIT: Just realized it may mean "left mount, short mirror". (As in a short stalk). But I'm still curious about the shipper.

    It is kind of obvious it would be a carrier going by the name of 'Dixie'. Because there are many companies that are named 'Dixie' in that area, one would have to do a search to see if it was a trucking firm or rail carrier that delivered your truck.

      Left Mounted short mirror ? I'm just guessing!

        I remember a truck line named "Dixie Motor Freight". Bet that's it!

          The railway at that period in time would most likely be Atlantic Coast Line(ACL) and/or the Atlanta Birmingham and Coast (AB&C) railway running through Waycross, Georgia.

            Thanks guys. Dixie Motor Freight is most likely it. PBR2, thanks for the info on the railways.
