    I think I can get them to Kansas and then probably pretty close to you. Let me know if I should pursue this.

    Gary, "pickup" is sorta anonymous. How about 4E series (4E5, 4E7 ???) or even C-cab???
    Bob/MrBiggs - You are correct. I never thought about it that way. I have a 4E7. Most manufacturers called them pick ups, but Studebaker (at least in some years) called them pickups. Dropping the Transtar name in 1959 is sorta like the humor that caused Studebaker to call Champ cabs T cabs.

    I may be able to get them on a backhaul to Vern Ediger's in Kansas and will call him later so he can check on that.

    I'm not in any particular hurry. I can't even really work on the truck until the middle of July.

    Yes, shipping will be the real issue. Didn't you mention something about bringing them to Kansas?

    Ezra,

    I guess I would let the box go for that. However, it will be this weekend before I can get any pictures of the cab as my "treasures" are stored on a piece of property I own 30 miles from my house. How would we work out shipping?

    So now I see the pattern. If I want to get my posts noticed, I should start a fight over semantics.

    But seriously folks...Guido, can you send me pictures of the cab and I already have two good rear fenders for the box. Would you be willing to sell the box without the fenders for $400?

    It's a rare day when I refer to our Transtar as a pickup
    It's more difficult with a 1959. I currently own a 1959 pickup and owned another one a few years ago. As you know, 1959 is the one year that the pickup is not a Transtar, so I just refer to it as a pickup.

    I was admonished the other day by one of the parts suppliers that if I'm asking about a "truck" that means one-ton or bigger. I have a 2R6 "pickup" that I want to restore. That's what I'm looking for.
    Well, I don't think you should feel "admonished" by that vendor. That's just a vendor being specific for his own good purposes, if you ask me. Everything I've seen refers to the 1/2 tons and 3/4 tons as "trucks". Any Stude person should be content with you telling them the model number, and should be able to know right away what size "truck" you are talking about.

    See, I could have sold you a front fender I have here (off a 2R16) and you'd have been surprized when it showed up [}]

    Sorry,

    I should have been somewhat more specific. I was admonished the other day by one of the parts suppliers that if I'm asking about a "truck" that means one-ton or bigger. I have a 2R6 "pickup" that I want to restore. That's what I'm looking for.

    You say "any 2R trucks sheet metal"??? The front fenders of the larger 2Rs have a significantly larger wheel opening but will STILL fit the pick-ups. Are you interested in those too?[?]

    I used to have three 2R trucks, I sold them all to Lee DeLabarre of Fort Wayne, IN. You might want to check with him.
