I purchased another M35 today. This one is a 1953 Studebaker M35 which was used by the Air Force and then transferred over to the Missouri Air National Guard. In December of 1987 it was repowered with a new engine, originally it had a gas engine, but now is has a newer multi-fuel engine. Of all the ones which we have gotten, this appears to be in the best shape. I imagine the Air Force took good care of it all of those years and didn't put it through much abuse.
