1948 Studebaker M5 SBC C4 Corvette Suspension Truck Project

*NOTE: I will remove as soon as sold please do not just ask that question / expect response.* FOR SALE 1948 Studebaker Special Deluxe M5 Short Bed ½ Ton Pick Up Truck Project Rare builder - with clear OHIO title in my name with original VIN/Data tags. Truck looks to have come from out west years ago - possibly a forestry or park vehicle by looks of seal on doors. The suspension is C4 Corvette with Corvette single composite springs in front / rear installed on the original Studebaker short bed frame. There is no weight on front suspension right now - it will set lower -- rear height can be adjusted with the through bolts @ the end of springs. I have started to install a 1984 C4 Corvette small block Chevy 350 V8 with Edelbrock carburetor/intake and 700R4 - just finishing up the fabrication of the front motor mounts. Firewall and front floor board installation is next with price going up as work progresses. Lokar floor mounted 16"shifter/cable operated with boot along with throttle cable. New painted tilt steering column with ignition switch, new steering wheel/horn button and steering shaft with new joints - C4 power rack/pinion. Column will be mounted and truck steering will be complete. Brakes are original C4 at all four wheels with brake lines needing run to the brake hoses, new frame mounted brake pedal bracket assembly with power booster Wilwood remote fill master cylinder are included. Rims / tires are American Racing Torq Thrust II 17X7 (235 45R17) / 17X8 (245 50R17). Rear end is C4 Corvette limited slip Dana 36 with 3:07 ratio. Bed is solid - looks like a later model tailgate. *Cab has rust in floors, above the windshield, right pillar, and back of cab/cab corners - I have acquired another cab for repair roof - pillar parts - glass patterns - for the door window bezel/vent window assemblies, windshield- center windshield trim. Has factory upper seat spring only - no bottom, speaker center dash section is missing - looks like rest of dash - gauges are there. Doors will need bottoms but are straight otherwise - open/close, latch nice. Hood / grill are present with Special Deluxe emblems - also has both chrome bumpers! Interesting fact about this truck is the fenders interchange front to back. Please send ALL questions through email - not a phone guy.
