  • Found Studebaker Truck

    We recently found a truck in our grove of trees. We knew vaguely over the years that there was one back there, but never pulled out to determine what it was. I was told by Jason Michaels that this is a 2R16-A Truck. Now I'd like to know if there is anyone out there interested in it as a whole or in parts as my husband's plan was to take it to scrap. Please email me and let me know if you are one of those looking for this type of truck. I will attempt to attach photos..... Last time it was licensed was 1959 per license plate. Not in great shape but it amazed me how shiny the chrome parts and nameplate still were!!OK tried to post photo, if interested, please email and I will send photos!!

      Looks like there is still some good stuff on that truck. Hopefully someone can use it. Steve

            The upholstry is probably gone! But, who cares. Did you see the deck frame!!! []

              Fenders and hood are good items to save, even with the larger wheel openings of your particular truck.

              Take picture for condition:

              Fender : Lower corner by the door
              Hood: Both leading edges that touch the grill. outside, and up under the hood.

                "Survivor!" Goosebumps. After you throw a quick charge on the battery, do yourself the favor of changing the oil before you start her up. Save the old oil, though, as it's probably still good and zincy.

                Who makes that special lark-shining polish for Studes, again? There's still paint there, you know.

                I've probably delivered paying loads on worse tires. It's...woods-fresh!

                  Those tires look good enough to get it up on a hauler. I sure hope I get to see it on the cover of TW in a couple of years.

                    That is in amazing condition if its been sitting since 1959!!! A good media blast from a person who knows what they are doing could really bring that truck to life. From the one picture the flatbed framework looks very useable too!

                        How about the "Fancy Visor?"

                        The doors do not appear to have rust in the usual spots!

                            It would be a shame to see the truck go to the crusher, as it looks like it would be a good candidate for restoration. Bud
