Studebaker - Yes.
It is approx a 64

Could be 61, 62 63 too. Maybe up or down a couple years too. Body was the same. Don't know them well enough to be exact.

@shiftmys6

Studebaker folded around 65 or 66. Google Studebaker Champ and I think you will find your truck.

These were made from 60 - 64. One thing that may help you is the tailights. Back in those days, manufacturers had a number on the the tailights. There would be a series of numbers followed by a dash and then two numbers. Those two numbers were the year of manufacture. No guarantees but it is worth a try if you can get back to the truck.

Nice Studey. The bed was actually originally of Dodge manufacture. Studebaker bought the stampings from Dodge (it was a bed/box that was not used anymore) and used them for the Studebaker truck. The cab is a modified Studebaker Lark sedan.

the old rusted chassi was found when Lake Lavon north of Dallas was 13 feet low in 2011. Don't know what it is.

Partially abandoned, mostly a parts vehicle.

Nice Todd,

Those scraggly looking trees add to the pic. I don't know what they are called at your end but they are not unlike some of the trees found around here (Black Oak).

Thanks Norman! Yes, I think these are some sort of Texas Scrub Oak or something like that.

By the way, I was very intrigued by your PM regarding the threshers being the first steam powered models.

I did inspect them a bit closer last weekend, but was not able to find much on them. I did find one instance of some old painted writing listing a patent pending and #. Wonder if that can be used to find out anything on these? I did not like my shots of the other thresher, so I am probably going to go back and there and re-shoot them again, we'll see.

Todd,
I messed up a little on the Thresher info. The wheat would have been fed through the feeder. That is actually like a trough on a regular thresher and would have been above where the motor is on your combine. There would have been a fan or blower somewhere that would have discharged the leftovers after the wheat or whatever else had been separated. That fan or blower can be seen on your combine above the motor and to the right.

I don't know much about patents but would suggest the year the patent was applied for would give a pretty good indication of the year of your combine. A patent office may still have those records but I don't know. It's worth a try if your interested.

I'll go back through some SD's and see if I can find an example of the type of number I am referring to. This is a 9 or 10 digit number type thing that was stencilled on the side of the Thresher. The fellow I spoke to about your combine said there is a way of interpreting this number but he wasn't sure how that was done. Other people I have spoken to in the past said they didn't know. They thought number was just given to the dealer and the dealer ordered the parts from that number or whatever was required. The people I am speaking to are in their late 60's/70's or older. They were just kids when they were around these things and it was their fathers who would be able to answer these questions. Unfortunately, they are no longer with us.

Leave it with me. I have a few other ideas that may or may not work. It's worth a try IMO.

This is the type of lettering you will find on a thresher and information a farmer would want to know back in the day.

Line 1
These numbers indicated the size of the separator and cylinder. In short, some threshers were bigger or smaller than others depending on the size of the separator and cylinder.

Line 2
Not sure how they determined this. I haven't seen any threshers with gauges on them. That doesn't mean they didn't have them. I suspect that rpm of the cylinder was governed by the idle speed of the tractor since these things were belt driven.

Line 3
Machine No. I believe this is the identifier that was used for any particular year, make and model of a thresher. I would imagine it would vary from manufacturer to manufacturer like todays VIN numbers do.

Line 4
An example of manufacturers warnings back in the day.
