  • Who would like their own Studebaker car hauler?

    Some of you may be aware that our long time friend and Studebaker restorer has been in ill health for the better part of the year with major heart problems. Ray Martin, a Past President of the SDC Ontario Chapter, simply has to slow down considerably. This unwelcome change of life for Ray means some of his Studebaker stuff has to go.

    Many members have seen Ray's beautiful Studebaker enclosed trailer at International Meets. It's a 23' unit with tandem axle. It is impressively adorned with Studebaker logos and is in excellent condition and ready for the road.

    The asking price is $6,500 and that's in Canadian dollars. Given today's current exchange rate, that equates to about $5,000 in U.S. dollars. I have agreed to assist Ray in this selling project so if any member out there is interested, please contact me via PM.

    We just moved to our new residence a few days ago so we do have a new telephone number, but our email address remains the same. Send me a PM if you wish to have this information. I will have access to pictures of Ray's trailer very soon so will be able to email them to serious buyers.

    Would love to see the pictures. Not something that I can afford, or even use presently, but sounds rad.

    Fingers crossed that Ray starts feeling better.

      Does Ray still have a white/black 65 Daytona coupe that came from Saskatchewan?

        Don't believe so. A few years ago he acquired a light green Daytona Sports Sedan from Saskatchewan. Is this the car you're thinking of?

                  Basic question. How big of a truck would you need to pull a trailer that size with a car in it? 1/2 ton, 3/4 ton, 1 ton?

                    I think Ray uses a 1/2 ton Ram. Perhaps Bob B. can answer for certain.

                      That is going to weigh between 6 and 7000 Lbs. loaded with a 32-3600 Lb. Stude. so I would not even think about anything less than a 1 Ton Dually Pickup.

                        My 1/2 ton Silverado has that much rating with the trailer package. I have handled 6,000 pounds very easily.

                            Rays truck is a 1/2 ton dodge , herr in Ontario your truck has to be lic for the weigh your using it for and also with a trailer like that both truck and trailer have to be safetied yearly so at least the new buyer would know that the trailer will pass a safety check . Safety's are tough here in Ontario
                            by the way Ray came and rescued me and my Champ with this rig and he let me take his truck and trailer home ( about 90 miles) That trailer pulled nice behind his truck .

                              Having had a box trailer somewhat smaller than the one in this thread, I would agree a 3/4 ton truck at least or better a one ton. Nice trailer. What year is it?

                              As to what to do with a trailer like this; they make wonderful storage sheds. Cheaper (when used) than buying a shed that size, no permits required, and they don't run up your property taxes either.
                              They're wonderful for hauling cars too!
