Focal Point: Stake Truck – Marusan/Hayashi • 1959

 In Steve Butler

By Steve Butler

TWO EXAMPLES of this truck have been encountered. Curiously, both sellers identified the truck as being made by Marusan and the truck as being a 1954 Studebaker. But, pictured on the box lid is a stake truck having a cab that should be considered a very good rendition of a 1948-50 Dodge. Then, at the lower left front corner of the box lid is the circular logo for the Japanese manufacturer Marusan. Then in the right front lower corner is the diamond shape logo for Hayashi, another Japanese manufacturer.
