  • If you have a C-Cab Door Visor...

    That you are willing to part with, please drop me an e-mail through the Forum as I am in need of a passenger side one for my '57 C-Cab. Finish is not important as I will need to paint it too match my truck, but I would like a straight one, thanks.

      Dave thanks for the reply, another member is sending me one. I do not have a close-up picture, but it is the visor over the door in the attached photo.

        Hallo Mark,

        I always love seeing a new photo of your truck.
        It's beautifull to the extent that i would
        never consider to use the bed, though i have seen a
        photo where you loaded compost or something similar?

        What i want to ask is about the placement of the spare wheel,
        is that standard?

        Was placement of the wheel on the outside of the bed,like
        one sometimes see(with the special fender) an option?
        What do you call it when the spare is placed " in the fender"?
        Is there also place for a spare under the bed?
        Where is the spare on the T-cabs?under the bed?

        Regards,
        Peet

          The fender mounted spare tire setup came about because the 4x4 trucks that came out in 1957 had the gas tank mounted to the frame behind the axle where the spare tire normally went.

          They were optional on all P1 beds from then till the end. Some were retrofitted to earlier trucks by owners.

          The spare tire could be carried under the rear of the bed (on 2wd trucks) or carried in the center front of the bed.
          T-Cabs with P1 beds had all three options, the under the rear of the bed most common, T-cabs with the P2 had the tire carrier under the rear of the bed.

            Thanks Transtar60,

            Do you perhaps have a link to photo's of your
            trucks?
            From your signature it sure seems like you qualified
            as a Truckfarmer many moons ago!

              Some pictures are posted on the Stude truck talk. At the top of the page.

                Thanks Peet - appreciate the compliment! I think the picture you are thinking of is one taken by his former owner where he was transporting bark mulch...

                As Charlie pointed out, there were a couple of options for 2WD pickups. Mine originally had the spare mounted under the bed, but as the hardware is now long gone and I seldom carry a "load" in the box, having the spare mounted in the box makes it a lot easier to get at if needed and to inspect periodically as required. Mine is mounted a bit further to the left than original to accomodate the aftermarket storage box.

                  Thanks Mark,

                  What is the view in the side mirror like if the
                  spare is mounted on the side of the bed?

                  Over here a lot of pickup trucks (we call them "Bakkies")
                  have those pipe railings on the bed to facilitate
                  transporting animals; or mostly to make it possible to
                  take a drive with a crowd in the veld,where it is then
                  safe to stand on the back without taking a dive.

                  These trucks often carry more than 2 spares,which then
                  get mounted outside the rails on the sides,and obstructs
                  the view in the side mirrors.

                  What's the size of Vancouver Island? Do you ever get to
                  drive in the woods?

                    spare is mounted on the side of the bed? No problem as I use convex mirrors for the side mirrors (from SI).

                    What's the size of Vancouver Island? About 400 mi. long by up to 80 miles wide. Do you ever get to
                    drive in the woods? Yes, but not with the Transtar.
