Old Cars Reader Wheels: 1949 Studebaker 2R5 pickup

Old Cars spotlights a reader submitted 1949 Studebaker 2R5 pickup

Richard Shurson sent us this shot of his awesome Studebaker 2R5 pickup. He had this to add…

This is a barn-find in 2002 that was treated to a body-off restoration. I "upgraded" the original flathead 6, to a 1951 Studebaker 232 cid V8, with three on the tree transmission with OD. 

You buy an old vehicle to relive driving what you drove as a kid, right? This is a fun truck to drive that I get plenty of "thumbs up" with!
