    Is that a M-truck shifter maybe? or is the car a taxicab with the top shifter trans? It does look like a real top shift 3-speed anyway.

        The guy says in the ad something about it possibly being a taxicab, except it's a 2-door[}].

        I guess with Studebaker, anything is possible.

            Nate,

            The M series trucks had a straight shifter, I know my '57 Transtar with a 5 speed has the offset one like pictured.

                        The Taxi accessory floor shift was mounted on the side of the transmission, similar to the aftermarket type. It had a rather larger boot and a straighter shift bar.

                            What looks odd to me, is that there is no type of factory shift-collar around the steering column.
