  • Seeking Info on '56 2E13 1-Ton 9Ft Bed Trucks

    Have been looking at a 1956 E13 and would appreciate all your thoughts and any information available.
    From reading Fred Fox's article on '56's it looks like an early production.



    The ID plate indicates it was originally Daybreak Blue with Squadron Blue Grill, Bumper and Wheels

          Chapter 11 here covers the 2E series trucks, though Fred's article may have already provided more info.

          The big challenges on the 56 trucks are the parking lights and headlight rims, which were one-year items and tend to be expensive. And of course, rust -- but maybe in Arizona that's less of a problem. Most the body parts interchange with other years, but the grille is one-year only.

              So how many of this model truck is out there I know 9 ft trucks are few and far between. Has any one seen any 56s out there I myself own a 58 9 ft box 1 ton.

                No way to know, but you MIGHT need BOTH hands to count all years of the 9 footer rusted out hulks still out there in the U.S. somewhere!

                  Looks to be pretty solid,the bed looks pretty straight from what can be seen - might not have been worked as hard as it should have been.

                      as far as numbers go, and given probably that 90% of the Stude trucks out there are owned by older, non-computer types....... I'd surmise that any given number proposed here is representing ~ 5% of what's out there. In other words: 90% of these trucks are unknown to us and our immediate network of nuts. Also, most are rural vehicles.....just a guess...
