Description

Lot #355 - A beautiful example of a rare Studebaker Transtar truck. Studebaker suspended production of all its truck models when it closed its United States factory in December 1963 which has made these very difficult to find. This Transtar has recently gone through a complete restoration. The undercarriage is as clean as the top. It retains all the original sheet metal and is matching numbers. For the first time in the industry, the 56-57 Studebaker Transtar pickup bodies were two toned as well as the cabs. Chromed side moldings running the width of the cab accent the color break. The original blue and white exterior color combination looks stunning. The 57-58 Transtars also received an aggressive new fiberglass grille. Standard features include twin traction, cross-link variable ratio steering, two-stage rear springs, full foam seats, chromed door visors and all-weather cab comfort. This Transtar is equipped with the original Power Star 259cid V8 that packs 170hp. It is coupled with a 3-speed transmission. The exhaust system has been modified and sounds sweet. An original 1958 Studebaker Transtar brochure is included.
