The latest addition to the fleet!











I picked this truck up last week on my way down to Quantico just outside of Harrisburg. It's a 52 Studebaker Pickup model 2R11-22 with a long box and original V8. It's a project for way down the road, but I have one. It was $300. Enjoy!

Cool find - I would buy something just like that if I had any talent for bodywork.

And then there's a fantastic Studebaker Swap in York, PA the first weekend in March.

Have you seen this site?

You'll find that Studebaker is one of the best supported old cars around. The parts availabilty is fantastic for a car that went out od production in 1966!! The two swap meets will make your head spin when you see so many Studebaker parts in one plce. You will also find all the help you need tracking down parts and information. Look into the forums! If only the car was as good as it's support network is ....they'd be the perfect car to have.

I own the same vehicle, mine is a 1953 model that I picked up for a sweet low price of $750.00, the engine runs, yes it runs!
