Abandoned: Studebaker Truck and 55 Chevy [located in Eastern Washington State]

North of Spokane, Washington I came across two abandoned vehicles out in the woods in the middle of nowhere. An early model Studebaker pickup truck, and a 55 Chevy. Here are some pictures that I took. There not exactly barn finds, but they are abondoned classics. Does anyone think these are worth anything? Here are some more pictures that I took of these two classics.



As you can see, this 55′ Chevy looks to be fairly solid. It seems to me that you could get most of the parts you would need online from EcklersEarlyChevy.com and spend a couple of weekends sanding. For the amount of time it would take to get this car back on the road and looking good – it just might be worth it!




So, what do you think? Are these worth the time and effort that would be needed to get them restored? Or do you think they are already too far gone or not rare enough to try to mess with?

    If one has the time, money, dedication, and patience, almost anything can be restored. These look like solid bodies, and parts are plentiful for the “55 Chevy. Restore them, don’t crush them!

    Definitely get them out of the woods and restored. I have a ’55 Chevy just like that one. Classics like these aren’t around much anymore and well worth fixing up.

    I'd just like to point something out to everyone…the truck is NOT an International. It is a 1949-1953 Studebaker pickup. They went unchanged in those years. Look it up, search "49 studebaker pickup" on Google Images. Also, it says Studebaker right across the tailgate, the top of the grill, and on the side in front of the door.

    I like the International truck. But I'm working on a 63ford galaxie500 boxtop 4 door sedan.

    Doing most of the work myself. I tell the wife, children , grandchildren , family and friend

     for Christmas get me gift cards to Auto Zone , Jegs, Year one , Summit,ect………..I rebuilt

    the engine 1st so I could drive her. I took half the chrome off , filled the holes , rattle can primer

    took her to a car show won 3rd in her class.(60 to 63 cruiser) Made me feel good about the work

     I've done on her..Still have a long way to go but I'm no hurry. If I finish her I'll have nothing to tinker with..

    The four door is not good enough I don't think , but the pickup is worth fixing . Maybe some one can use the 55 for parts if there anything left . now the pickup will make a very nice rod for some one to play with , you might try KC classic cars , on facebook and see what they think thair the best I've ever seen at fixing things the right way . >>> Pat
