1954 Studebaker 3R6 Description:

Thank you for your interest in our beautiful Studebaker truck.

It is a 1954 3R6 ½ ton Short bed 6-cyl. 245.6cid/102hp 1bbl 3-speed manual with overdrive. When Dan bought this truck in 2003 it had just undergone its restoration. Everything throughout the truck is original, including the paint color.

The previous owner was a local circuit court judge who did the restoration. The truck comes with receipts dating back to 2003 when the truck was purchased by Dan. Also, included are books about clubs and parts.

It is a turnkey truck needing only what you would like to customize. It does have some spots of rust that are typical of these trucks. The floors and the rest of the body are pretty dry (see photos.)

We hate to see it go but we moved to a house with a smaller garage. We as a family agreed that it was time to see her go to a good owner that can continue to take good care of her. Below, I will put all the specs of the truck. Please ask me any questions you have and I will answer quickly. I can also send photos of specific areas on the truck you have any questions about. I can also video conference or Facetime a viewing of the truck. I am working on a YouTube video of the truck.

I have driven a lot of different trucks of this year and none compare to the comfort and quality of build that this truck does. I really think it’s the Cadillac Escalade of its time.

I can be texted to 626-709-3849 or called if you have any question

1954 Studebaker 3R6 1/2 Ton Info

Body Style:2 door Pickup

Engine Type:6-cyl. 245.6cid/102hp 1bbl

The 3R-series trucks are the only models with both the then-new, curved, one-piece windshield and the earlier, small rear window.The only other items that ended up being unique to the 3R series were the headlight rims, parking light rim and lenses, and the emblem on the hood lip.The big news for 1954 was the addition of two new models, the 1½-ton 3R28 and the 2-ton 3R38.These were powered by the 232.6-ci Studebaker V8 engine, now rated at 127 horsepower – so Studebaker trucks finally had a competitive power plant, albeit only in their larger trucks.All of the other models continued with the same power trains and wheelbases.The 3R28 and 3R38 trucks were available in the same wheelbases as the 3R16 and 3R17: 131, 155, 171, and 195 inches.A new flatbed “platform” body was now available on all models from the factory, and a 6 ½-foot stake body could now be ordered on the 3R5 and 3R6 models.The April 5, 1954 Studebaker Trucks Price List published by the company lists the Factory List Price of a 3R5 with pickup body as $1372, without taxes.
