  • Best M series around?

    http://www.chooseyouritem.com/classi.../18422129.html

    This is the last truck Asa Hall had restored (finished after his passing). It was shown at the Lancaster meet. Pretty steep price for an M series but it is the best and I am sure the asking price would not pay for the restoration.

      That is a rare and excellent truck.
      It is hard to sell, for much money, trucks that are larger than pickup size and do not fit into a "normal" garage. The market is quite small, but it only takes one.

      EDIT: The listing states; exterior gray. To me, it looks like green with black fenders.

        Looks gray (with black fenders) on my monitor.

          It's definitely grey in the photos showing the cab and the engine.

            If it costs you more than $51,000 to restore an M Series truck, you've got serious problems with where you spend your money. That's an outrageous price for that truck.

              Sal , I tend to agree with you , just because someone spends that much doesn't mean its worth that !

                I too, think that's too much to restore that vehicle. I could see where if you did nothing yourself ('cept write checks) , you could flirt with $30K. But $50K??? You'd have to be really silly with your checkbook.

                There's an International 1&1/2ton that's being "redone" (not restored) by a high dollar shop near here - about a 1950 model. The work is impeccable. What's more, some wealthy farmer is paying them to WIDEN and LENGTHEN the cab while maintaining a bone stock appearance so that a late-model turbo-charged driveline could be fitted! There's over $50K in it so far and it's not quite complete.
                No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.
