  • 2R5's Stude's

    My oldest studebaker is my '50 2r5 1/2 ton pickup . Its currently under restoration thats taken me about 9 years . I don't work on it continually but when I get time and the money I go at it . Hope to maybe get it completed this coming year. Its a Hamilton truck , which makes it a bit scarce...not many Hamilton trucks survived.




    Here is our 1960 Lark 2dr VI . Its an very rust free original car with only 55,000 miles on it . It originally came from south western Nebraska . We've owned this car since 2003 and now since we bought our 4th Studebaker this one is forsale ( can't keep them all , no room).


    Now heres our latest addition. Its a ' 64 Daytona HT , Hamilton built and was sold Mar 14/64 out in Kamloops BC . It stayed there for its whole life till just this year when I purchased it . It has 57,000 original miles . This is the reason the ' 60 Lark will go



    Last but by no means least, is our 1960 Champ , 289 3spd OD . This truck has been totally restored and we drive it everywhere. Its been to 2 International meets in the last couple of years and its just a great truck to drive . This is our signature picture here on the forum so theres no need to post another picture.

      2r5, did that 60 Lark sell? (2 years ago)

      Love the 64, I'm waiting for the right one to cross my path one day.

        Your '64 looks great. The '64 hardtops are one of my favorites.

          Not to horn in on Bob, but yes the '60 Lark did sell, as did the '50 2R5. Both were real works of art. Here's the 2R5 last summer at the Crossroads Zone Meet in St.Catharines...

                    It certainly was gorgeous; that pic, taken on a hazy, greyish day, does not do it justice, either. Here's another shot from one of the Mapleview cruises last summer...a sunnier day by far...



                    Next to the 2R5 that evening was this superb R1-powered 64 droptop...



                    Here's the 2R5 from the back, with four other Studes for company.



                    And just to complete things with a bigger shot of Bob's '60 Champ, here's "The Fried Green Tomato" departing M'view on another occasion last summer...
