    Howdy! I've lurked a little but finally am getting around to uploading some pics of my Studebaker 2R. My dad bought this truck in 1987. It's been mine for a few years now and will someday be passed down within my family, Good Lord willing and the creek don't rise! Click image for larger version

      Thank you! It's the original Econ-O-Miser - as far as I can tell. We found it in a field in New Mexico and it took a couple years to get the woman who owned the place to sell it to my Dad but she eventually relented.

        Thank you.

        It's a Studebaker engine, for sure. From the radiator position, it looks like the smaller Champion six.

        If you have a picture of the other side of the engine, showing the intake/exhaust manifold, I can tell if it is a Commander (245) six or a Champion (170) six.

              I think the number on the headcasting translates to a 170 six? I am 99% sure it's original...

                Yup, Champion. Shape of manifold answers that question.

                      Looks Great in Metallic Brown.

                      It is a 2R10, 3/4 Ton W/ the Champion 169 c.i.d. Small Six and 122 Wheelbase Long Bed, 8 ft.
                      A good work Truck for Local runs and Cruises , but not Highway or Interstate friendly without Higher Rear gears and an Overdrive Transmission.

                      The Actual Engine I.D. Serial Number is Stamped into the Block, Left Front upper Corner near the Head.
