    The '55 fenders will fit a '49, but will have mounting holes for the larger steel grille drilled in them. I believe 1 ton with larger than 17.5 " wheels and definately the larger trucks have the larger wheel openings. All cabs, doors, hoods are the same if same year with some being the same for many years. Bolt in floor humps are different depending on the transmission used.

    I'm still learning about these trucks, and as such I can't be certain, but I 'think' it's one ton and up.

    However- I am certain it's 1.5 and up-



    Dad's '62 one ton is in the same driveway as my bus-
    maybe I can get a shot of the two together and figure it out???

    Fender questions

    I went to a junkyard looking for Studebaker parts I found a 1955 E-Series pick up, I was wondering if those fenders would fit a 1949 1/2 ton C cab? I also found a school bus that had an identical front end to my 49 the fenders looked the same as well were the fenders bigger on them?
    There were a few cars and a couple 41-47 m series trucks (I think I am gonna bring them home)
