A Brief History of the Studebaker M15:
The M Series Studebaker trucks came in several versions both pre and post WW II. The M-5 was a 1/2 ton PU. The M15 was the 3/4 ton version. The M15A was the one & 1-1/2 ton version. The M5, M15, and M15A all came with the Champion 169 ci. engine, only. The M16 1-1/2 & 2 ton versions came with the more powerful Commander 226 ci. engine. The Studebaker US6 version was produced during the war to government specifications; using a different nose and engine configuration, in both a 4x6 & 6x6 versions of a 2-1/2 ton truck. In early 1945, Studebaker was given permission to produce some M Series trucks for civilian use. These early post war civilian trucks used the Studebaker US6 cab with the government style swing out windshield.
Like most truck producers, the Studebaker M Series trucks came with a variety of wheel bases and could be had in any number of body styles. Only pick-up beds were offered on the M5, M15, & M15A versions from the factory, however through several custom body manufacturers any number of configurations could be had on all versions.
While the M16 version used the larger Commander 226 ci. engine, through the use of a different fire wall on these cabs all the other front sheet metal stayed the same. However, a spacer was used in the front fenders to accommodate the larger front wheel track of the M16.
First put into production in November 1940, it saw extensive action during the Second World War, specifically in the South East Asia theatre against Japan. In particular, these Studebaker US6 version of the M Series Studebaker trucks were used in the construction of the Burma road. A large number of these trucks also served in the Russian forces as part of aid giving to the country by the U.S.
We can shrink wrap this truck for an extra charge to protect it during shipping.
