This is the untold story of the Studebaker 2 1/2 ton truck of WW2. Although the truck was well designed, handsome and an excellent performer by all accounts, few but the most diehard Studebaker enthusiasts know of this truck's significance in WW2, particularly as compared to the “original deuce” - the GMC CCKW. With nearly 200,000 US6’s built, one might expect to see more of these sharp vehicles still around, whether earning their keep at a local farm or showing up at a car show.
This book is the product of over 20 years of careful research that led the author, David Doyle, around the globe, ferreting out the story of one of the unsung heroes of WW2, the Studebaker US6.
Over 600 high resolution pictures including many never before seen images from the Studebaker archives and private collections. Almost all of the photographs are either full page (8x10) or half page with captions. The printing is of the finest quality on glossy paper.
Includes a 20+ page appendix/chart with production details including variants by year, registration numbers & contract and more.
