    Hola mi amigo! Como estas? Tu Studebaker es muy magnifico! (I took Spanish class and know a little, but not much) What you need is the grille assembly. I don't know right where to get one, but you may want to try studebakervendors.com There is a LOT of people there that might have what you need.

      Azan,
      Welcome to the group. E-bay is a good place to start, you just have to be patient, the parts you need will show up eventually. The parts you show in the picture are refered to as "center grill assembly" and the "left and right side grill assemblies". Most inportant is to join the SDC, the information you need is at the home page. Also there is a link to many new and used parts vendors. There is a world of information here, all you need to do is ask. Hope this helps, again, welcome aboard!

          Welcome!

          The M5 pickups were great little trucks. Kind of put Studebaker "on the map" as far as trucks are concerned.

          I have a 1946 M15 which is the one ton version of your M5.

          The grills are getting harder and harder to find. That cute little bumper did little to protect them, so many were trashed.

          Try posting your needs over at Studebaker Truck Talk.

          Also, Gary Ash, Gary Hearn, Fred Cook and others that post here are real experts on M5's. Hopefully they will jump in here.

            Azan,

            I do have a complete grill assembly, but it needs quite a bit of work and I am sure you can find better. The two center strips I have are broken or twisted, but I hope to have it straightened out by York. As Dick suggested, try a post on the Studebaker Truck Talk site.

            Was there any M sheet metal at the junk yard in Colorado that was discussed on the other board on this site? Perhaps if some one is close they could check. Also, Chip Steckler in North Dakota has sheet metal. I know he just made a post on the Truck Talk site today and you could e-mail him from there.

            Dick, I will try to unload the M-16 I just brought in from Kansas this weekend and get you a couple of pictures of that and the buggy.

              It looks like someone used a saw to remove the narrow bars of the center grille section and the two side pieces. They left only the outer edges. The parts are supposed to look like this:


              As mentioned above, these turn up on Ebay frequently. You can also call to Vern Ediger in Halstead, KS at (316) 830-2271 or email him at evmotors AT earthlink.net [replace AT with @, no spaces]. He has many old Studebaker trucks and cars that he parts out. He can ship to Mexico.

              See my web site for info on restoring M5 trucks.
