    Before purchasing the truck, someone started with a 12v Swap and never finished with it. It has a new solenoid, new starter, alternator; however, I just need to finish wiring it up. But I did happen to find an aftermarket radiator that will work.

    Like the green color. I have been the caretaker of four Packards for about five years, all 6V and no issues…Mike

    Suggest you post your pix and question about radiators on this site. There has been a lot of discussion there on radiators for these trucks.

    Just FYI: Ebay usually has ads for radiators for various Stude trucks. Most are only large enough for the smaller Champion 6. The larger Commander 6 used a much larger radiator. Those used on the later V8s will fit.

    Don’t have really any pics at the moment, but I just bought this ‘49 2R16a. Currently in the process of a 12V swap. Other than the 12V swap, the only thing i need to do is to replace the radiator, but not sure where to find one.
Working...
