C2C Fact

In 1941, Studebaker decided to stop trying to compete against the likes of Mack, Diamond-T, and Autocar for the sale of heavy-duty trucks.  Instead, the company focused on producing a more complete line of light- and medium-duty trucks that were more likely to find customers through its large network of small, rural dealerships.   Attractive and modern, the cab employed some body panels from the 1941 Champion passenger car, as well as its basic dashboard.  The hood, fenders (interchangeable front to rear on each side), and grille, however, were unique to the trucks.  The M series consisted of the ½-ton M5, 1-ton M15, and 1½-ton M16.  It is unclear why the 1½-ton M16 wasn’t designated as the M20 or M25, which would have been more in line with previous practice. 

A new model “C4” Deluxe cab was available for 1956, as was an optional two-tone paint scheme – but most of the changes were less visible.  The electrical system was now 12 volts, and a new Twin Traction limited-slip differential was available in ½-ton models.  This was a first in the industry.  The pickup boxes were 3 inches wider, and the ½-ton models were now also available with a 122-inch wheelbase and an 8-foot pickup box. A new 9-foot pickup box was available on 1-ton models, which now came on a longer 131-inch wheelbase.
