No funky add-ons that you would have to take off. The truck is straight forward and ready to be cared for.
Runs and drives. Goes forward, backward, left and right. The horn, lights, map light all work. Great starter project truck.
Comes with the new cab corners, door sills, second transmission, original bench seat (was replaced with seat from Chevy Astrovan), new window seals, and a box of miscellaneous parts.
Needs some TLC. Don't be afraid of a Studebaker. Parts are still readily available and I can provide links to most of the parts you would need to restore this truck (if you chose to do so).
Unfortunately for me, I just don't have the time or the space to work on this truck anymore and need to part ways with the old girl. I'd rather see her go to a good new home than sit idle. She's a good old lady, in warm weather will start 1st or 2nd try every time. In the cold weather, well you've got to get her out of bed first.
NJ State Title is in hand.
Price is negotiable, but I know what I have into it and I know what I need to recoup to break even. I'll even throw in the shop manual and parts manual for free.
Please no trades. Some of you have some beautiful cars out there, but I'm not looking for a new project right now.
Lastly, I prefer conversation via email or text message. I don't really answer the phone unless you want to legitimately schedule a meet up to check her out.
