Stash Of 1932 To 1962 Studebaker Trucks

Studebaker trucks aren’t all that uncommon. A group of Studebaker trucks stored away is a fair amount more uncommon, though. This group of trucks found here on Craigslist in Pratt, Kansas, vary in years spanning from 1932 to 1962.

It looks like there are some mostly complete projects, but also some extra parts as well. There are a couple of Champs here, which are different but will certainly appeal to someone with their unique looks. I’d be more inclined to go for the grain truck or flatbed towards the back as I’ve always appreciated that style of Studebaker truck.

It looks like most everything here in the listing would need extensive work. Hopefully, it wouldn’t be too offensive to the originality crowd to mention the words rat rod..? Some of you will know a lot more about these trucks than I and will have a better idea of their value. Could the oldest one of the bunch (1932) be worth the most, even in its current condition?

While it looks like these have been kept (at least for some time) in an open-ended pole barn or machine shed, it is nice that they’ve had some sort of cover. No real detail is given in the listing by the seller but does say to call for price. Does it look like there might be something here worth inquiring about? Would it be worth trying to make a deal and buy the whole stash of these Studebakers?

    In the Craigslist add, the second photo, shows a 2-tone truck. Green &
    Pigeon poop is a wonderful combination. A different sort of patina. Maybe it’s called guano-green. Just too much crap for me. No-thanks.

    That might start a new craze, Al, and introduce a lot of folk into the pleasures of eating squabs after the birds’ ‘patination job’ is done… ;-)

    There looks like there might be a couple of saveable vehicles in that pile, and some good only for spare parts.

    Why is it that anything that interests me is always too far away.

    I could sure take on a project like the flat bed truck. It’s a little newer than the immediate post-war models I prefer but it still looks like a decent project. I like the ’32 as well. I never did get cozy with the mismatched beds of the latest trucks although I can understand the reasoning behind the decision.

    Studebaker couldn’t done really well back in the 30s if it would have played the caution game and invested money back into the company instead of paying those generous dividends to shareholders. Stude had the knowhow and the facilities to become fierce competitors with the others….

    No M series. Pass.

    The champ would be a nice truck, if it were the step side, drop in a 383 stroker, a 4 speed st10 and good to go. Lightweight and different.
