  • Studebaker Dump Truck on Ebay

    Pretty cool idea.

    I'd hate to try and use those wipers!

    "Totally restored" but that looks like a flat black dash, and wouldn't a new horn button look nice?

      Nobody loves these old trucks more than I do. I hope it finds a new home that will care for it as good as the current builder did. Let's face it...this is a display vehicle. Even with the rebuilt and fresh engine, this truck has a load just pulling itself empty. It is where it flat Florida. There it can live comfortably without a heater. Also, it can lumber along the back roads unchallenged by steep hills. There was a time when lumbering down the road at a cruising speed of 40 to 45 MPH was relatively safe, but with today's drugged-up inattentive distracted texting drivers closing from behind at 80 MPH...very risky!

      If it were mine...I'd be investigating the possibility of at least a big six, modern power, or even a diesel for road-ability.

          Interesting, the engine has rusty bolts and rust on the L front side, the springs are rusty too, can't believe this is "finished." For what it appears to be it's a lovely thing.

            Nice truck! The hydraulic system, tank, telescopic cylinders, lifting brackets, ect. are the same as my 4E13.
