This is a 1948 1 ton that was a special build for the New York State Parks department. (I have copies of the documentation.) They where repowered at a dealer in Water Town before going into service in New York State Parks, I believe this one came from Lake Placid. They where fitted with 170 CID Continental engines that where actually copies of Studebakers and where originally built for the Navy. (The Navy used lots of these Studebaker engines for Weasels, pumps and generators as the Army used Willy engines.) It was a stake truck from birth.There was no bed on it when I got it so I built one from original Willys documentation I found at a locale Salvage yard, How-Bills, that was once a Willys dealer going back before the forties.
Thanks, Chuck Facklam
