The history of the truck is: current owner is the daughter. Her father was an avid Studebaker collector and was in the Studebaker Drivers Club for many years. He passed away in 2001 and willed the truck to her. It was fully restored in 2001. She has decided to let the truck go so that someone else can give the truck the love and attention it deserves.
