I travel the state of SD for my job and have driven by two what appear to be M-16's. Both are for sale, both are within close proximity (
I have learned the contact info on these and wanted to get the word out before the crusher/scrapper comes by as steel fetches fair money these days..it would be a shame.
Looks like a 48 M16 near Lake Preston, SD. It's a chassis-cab (only) with a 4 speed and dually 20"Budds, very decent sheetmetal, very straight grilles, complete with seat, too. Asking price is 1800.00. number to dial is: (605) 530 847 4352...simply mention the Studebaker for sale.
Next one is a bit rougher -another 48? M16 just west of Huron, SD. Missing the front bumper, (brackets are there) chassis-cab with another 4sp and I peeked under the hood it has what appears as the Commannder 6. This one has a bit more rust-through on the cab and the seat is gone. Headlights are removed as are the bezels. Number to dial for this unit is: (605) 350-1300. Ken Ferris is the seller.
I found these both during my travels and wanted to get the word out. I initially wanted the seat out of one, but that is not an option. I have pics of both but have no clue how to post them here.
