Default 1946-47 Studebaker M-Series Dually

You don't see these every day. I was taking a stroll along a country road near home this morning and saw this old truck sitting in a farmyard. I didn't recogize it because I don't think I've ever seen one like it before. I researched it on the Net when I got home and found that it's a 1946 - '47 Studebaker flat-bed or stake-bed M-Series truck. A fine-looking machine IMO, sturdy and elegant-looking at the same time. Just look at that grille - you never see anything that resrtrained and elegant on today's trucks. This old truck must've looked wonderful in it's original (I'm guessing here) red cab paint and glossy black fenders.

Like your pix of that fine old Studey. They did make good trucks and unfortunately you don't see many Studebakers any more.

Like you, I always have a camera ready when I'm driving the back roads...never know when you will come across a great photographic subject as this Studebaker DRW truck.
