  • 1948 Studebaker Bus

    Has anybody else seen this on ebay? Kinda nice!

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Other...QQcmdZViewItem

    This bus is a "True Orphan". Studebaker is no longer in production and the Superior bus body is no longer made by Superior Coach Co. This is one-of-a-kind since it's the only one on the registry with the National Studebaker Club (as stated before).

    But who is the National Studebaker Club??? Is that us???

    Somewhere between Perkinsville
    and Chino Valley AZ.

    I saw another M series bus on e-bay previously. I seriously doubt that the diamond plate at the bottom of the doors is original too.

        That is one cool ride. A lotta love was spent on that bus! Even has the Superior first aid kit!

        Now, why is it that this old M has a better fuse panel than my 63 Lark (which is to say... it actually has one)???!

            As an ex-schoolbus driver myself, I must say that's one sweet old bus. One I would love to drive every day. Here's another that makes the trip twice a year on the PanAmerican Highway from Alaska to Baja California. They were featured in the 2006 May TW, from which these pictures are borrowed:




            Perhaps not as pretty. But just as beloved by it's owners. Gee, might one classify this as another Stude-clunker?

                I'm not too sure why, but this post reminds me of this bus from eBay:

                Does anybody know what became of it?

                    Was that the one that had the Packard power train?

                            OK, anyone that may want to create a Studebaker bus, take a look at this Cantrell bodied 1942 IH that is in Tuscon. The body is already off the frame and you could just add it to your M-16 cab and chassis (with a little work ) and have a very special bus.
