Studebaker US6

During the 1970s a large number of these trucks were auctioned through the disposals system in Australia. Many were low mileage. I can recall a friend buying one with under 1000 miles on it for $750! Today many are in collectors hands but many more have had a hard life. See US6 register
Straight out of the army - Bert Barker's, 1974. See pics of the same vehicle in 2002

1973, Fieglins Timber, Nunawading. These trucks were soon stripped of anything military, changed to right hand drive, given traytops and painted a pale blue.
