    I believe that was the prototype for the trucks proposed to be built for the Indian Army in 1958-59. Stude had built some RHD model 3R48 trucks in 1954 for India.

    At last year's York meet, Sharon Hall was selling a copy of the proposal that Stude had submitted to the Indian Army. It included a number of photos and complete specs.

    Skip, do you need a 2R48 parts book ? I think I still have one. Probably some parts left in the old SASCO inventory.

    Thanks, but already have one. Why did we buy them in the first place?

    Never know, John, we have some serious mail carriers on this Forum and they aren't the wallflower type.

    Can I order two? Of course I want duals on the rear! Note the running board, it does not appear to be a standard Transtar type but looks more like a modified one from a M-16.

    Interesting to see that it is RH drive.

    Saw many of these in the early to mid 60's when at Ft. Lewis WA. Thanks for the memories, Richard

    The guys on the truck-type TV shows haven't done anything to match that! I would not want to try to stop some one in that-looks wild!!

    WOW! That would have made an excellent fertilizer spreader or crop sprayer in the fields. One could also use it at the tractor & truck pulls. Cool photo!
