  • 1947 Studebaker Tow Truck - $3500 (Minneapolis, MN

    http://minneapolis.craigslist.org/hn...592594113.html
    Weaver did the conversion to the tow assembly, using a stock Studebaker M15a 1 ton pick up. Included in this price is a rebuilt Studebaker engine (shortblock) that I picked up a few years ago. The rings smoked in the existing engine, but ran well.

    Found this on Craigslist. It is not my truck.

    That is really neat. I love the M5's, after the Bullets and the '63's. Thanks for posting.

              Neat truck. Wish I could afford and had a place for it.
              Love M Series trucks.

                I see what looks like a brake drum on the side of the rear bed. Was this being used as brake on the cable winch?

                  Does anyone have any info on this wrecker. This was my dad's first wrecker when he got into the towing business in the mid 70s. My dad painted it blacks and yellow and a neighbor hand painted all of the lettering. I grew up riding in it with him all over southern Iowa. We would take it to shows on the weekends. Anyway he sold it in the mid 80s to pay some bills. It would be awesome if I could find it and if possible buy it back for him. Thanks for your time

                    Probably yes. BP
                    We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

                    Ayn Rand:
                    "You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality."

                    G. K. Chesterton: This triangle of truisms, of father, mother, and child, cannot be destroyed; it can only destroy those civilizations which disregard it.

                      I didn't notice when this was originally posted six years ago; it's from Walter "Radar" O'Reilly's home town!
                      Anyone know where it's at now?

                        It was a Craigslist post from Minneapolis. Radar was our claim to fame. HAHA
