1950 Studebaker Ramp Tow Truck

No Tow needed you can Drive this one Home!

Location: Antelope Valley California



Currently  Registered Commercially as a 1950 Studebaker Truck 

and Insured in the State of California



Obviously this truck was invented. 

The bed's length is 15' overall and 6' wide and is of very heavy duty construction. 




She comes with an New REW 5500 Lb. Capacity 12 Volt Winch

and has plenty of line to hook up a block and tackle for additional capacity


The Running gear and chassis came out of a 1976 Chevy 1 Ton Crew Cab



Her mill is a very strong running 350 and she has a Turbo 400 Automatic Transmission




She Runs Cool but it gets a little warm in the cab and 

could use some insulation on the inside cab firewall!





She Also comes with the heavy duty tow package for towing a trailer behind.





She rides on Heavy duty Springs, Shocks, to include Air Bags in the rear for a smooth ride.





The interior is very simple, with newer Bench seat




Has after market Oil, Temp and Volt that work 




Speedo and dash gauges do not work


All running lights work.


She has Power Steering & Power Brakes





External Battery Box (Photo with cover off)


Tires are in good shape and are mounted on American Racing 16" / 8 Lug wheels.





External Tool Box




Heavy Duty Ramps and Easy Storage




She has been very good to me. 

Great for hauling Hot Rods and Dragsters.

The largest vehicle towed has been a 1955 Chevy A/Gas Dragster

She has been my main tow for my dwarf racer for several years. 



Bertha is an extremely reliable driver 

I've taken her on some very long hauls as a chase truck to car shows

She's been to Ventura, Victorville, Lake El Mirage and the like with no problems.



Photos by Greaser Tom


She has been featured in several Photo Shoots



She Took First Place For Service Vehicle (Tow Truck) in 2006 at the Big Rigs For Kids

Car Show and Drag Race and she also took Judges Pick at the IHS Auto Show in 2007.






Quirks: She has a very small Transmission leak where the Speedo enters the Transmission case.

She only leaks when she sits for a long time.

It is a relatively easy fix.

The O ring needs to be replaced by dropping the valve body pan, the only reason 

I haven't done it is that I work on my vehicles outside in the desert and the dirt can play havoc

if it gets inside the trans case.



There is also a small leak from the power steering pump 

but again it is only noticeable if she sits for a long time.

If ya don't want to fix it, Just check you fluids like I have for the past several years!


She has No Glass in the Drivers Door but all the mechanism is there and working

And the Glass in the passenger door is cracked.








Other than that like I said she is a great runner and hauler too!



I will consider partial trades on this vehicle and 

am currently looking for a Good Running Ford Model A or B 4 banger Mill and

or a Pick Up Truck preferably a Pre 1970 model.



She comes at a very affordable price.


Guaranteeing the new owner years of enjoyment.
