GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this 1949 Studebaker 2R 05 Pickup for purchase. After World War II, Studebaker came out with the 2R series of pickup trucks replacing the historic M series. The 2R series was a major redesign bringing a mechanically and aesthetically advanced model series to market.

The upright look of the Studebaker M5 was gone, replaced with a rounded, streamlined look, somewhat reminiscent of GM's Advance Design rigs, but somehow more modern. One of the truck's most dramatic styling cues wasn't added by designers but rather subtracted--there were no exterior running boards or steps on this truck, neither beneath the doors nor at the front of the bed. Further distinguishing the 2Rs, they shared no body panels with Studebaker cars, though bits and pieces were swiped from the parts bins: headlamp rims and a hood ornament from the Champion, as well as hubcaps from the Commander. Finally, to ensure that the bed's streamlined look remained dent-free, the sides were double walled--a standard design in years to come, but unusual in the late 1940’s.

These trucks were quite the advancement in performance so they went to work, meaning clean surviving examples extremely rare to find. This 2R 05 body is on a 4x4 Chevy K5 Blazer frame powered by a 350ci V8 paired with a 350 automatic transmission. It also features power steering, power brakes, Edelbrock carburetor, Edelbrock intake, and more! The pink paint went along nicely with the removable Pink Panther magnets that were used on display at shows. This is a very cool build on a rarely found body style! Please call or email for more details!
