    I'll bet the shadows of telephone lines would jar that thing enough to loosen your fillings

        I'm not sure, but that may be the rare nine-foot bed.
        I can pretty much guarentee that you could load that fellow with firewood and not depress the springs at all.
        And, with that four-speed you could yank out stumps by popping the clutch at an idle. The one-ton I used to have had a 5.19 rear end.

            And as a R-15 it would have come with the 170 CID Champion engine.

                        From the photos, it does not look like the nine foot bed to me. The reason the Champion six is not resident any more is it spun itself to death just trying to move that heavy iron around the farm. Why Studebaker ever built such an abortion is beyond understanding. Love the truck much more with the buzzing little anvil gone to make room for an engine worthy of the running gear.

                        thnx, jv.
