1948 R series truck customized in 1948 for the Studebaker dealership, this truck was given every available option like the overdrive transmission which makes this a freeway viable truck with a 31 MPG fuel rating. The truck was also outfitted with the largest available engine from the 2.5 ton truck. Designed by Raymond Lowey, one of the greatest mid-century industrial designers, this is the first 2 months of the revolutionary R series which was the first truck with column shift and no running boards.
