  • 1940 K10 Fast Transport Express

    Hello all,

    I have the chance to acquire a 1940 K10 from an elderly family member. Attached should be a few pictures. I apologize for the poor quality. I should be able to get better ones in a few weeks.

    There's not much information on these trucks, but from what I found these are relatively "rare" with only a handful of known examples left. This K10 has an unknown bed from another truck and a 2 Ton Weaver Auto Crane. Its former life was as a tow truck. She has sat since the late 70's unmolested.

    Can anyone place a value on what they think the truck is worth?

    Thank you for your time!

    Wow. So, for the viewers I ask, what was the size of the Big Six engine before the Commander 245. I assume that's what six cylinder this is as it looks different than the Commander Six. Very impressive looking.

      The Big 6 was 226 ci in 1940. As used in the K10, horsepower was 75.

          I purchased a 1940 K10 with a standard be in January for $2800. From your pictures, I'd say the condition of the one your are looking at is about the same as mine. If you decide to pass, let me know becasue I would be interested.

            If you'd sell yours for $2800, I'd be interested. ;>)

              Just last week I finished scanning most all the literature in my K10 file. About 100 scans. Includes a roster of known examples. Let me know if you need anything.

                    Thank you all for the information. I'm trying to determine fair value since it is part of an estate. I feel that $2,800 is very low. The only thing I can find out there is linked below...please chime in if you think otherwise!

                      Thank you Mr. Quinn. I love the picture. I printed it out and taped it to my bland apartment wall...haha.

                        FWIW, opinions from those with no money or those of us who'd like a steal deal are questionable. On very rare vehicles which don't change hands often, NADA guides are just a quasi-expert opinion from one who'll never be asked to back it up with cash. The only real world way is to do a good presentation on eBay and what it sells for is what it's worth as is and today.

                              Style-wise, the K10 is my all-time favorite Stude truck, but what are the ergonometrics? The only reason I've never owned a Coupe Express is the cab is just too small for me. Is there more head and leg room in a K10?
