View Full Version : What model designation would a 1967 Studebaker truck be assigned?

So lets say Studebaker vehicles continued to be built for 1967, and the truck line got a new lease on life...what model name/number do you suppose a 67 1/2 ton V-8 engine truck with 8 ft. box would have been assigned? Would it have been a 9E7, 10E7, or 11E7, or something completely different? Studebaker nomenclature for trucks never really made sense to me because there always seemed to be an 'exception-and-if-or-but-depending on' to the rules. What's your best guess?..just wondering. cheers Junior

What about the short bed R1/R2, full package truck?

A 1967 could be a 11E7-122 but it would not be a "T" or a "C" Cab, they would both be NEW Designs; the "U" Cab and the "D" Cab! :ohmy:

They would need to build a 1965 and 1966 before they would need to worry about a 1967...

Why would they have to use numbers???? Like some of today's vehicles, they could give them clever names. Today, we have trucks with names, Avalanche, Luv, Ranger, Silverado, Tundra, Titan, Ridgeline, etc.

Studebaker could have added another "Trend" to their record. Perhaps truck names like, CONJECTURE, SPECULATION, OR WHATIF!;)...would have been appropriate given Studebaker's market position.:rolleyes:

So 11E7-122...would the 122 be for the wheelbase? cheers, Junior

The numbers were the ID. Like the rest, Studebaker had model names for the trucks, like Transtar and Champ.

So if Studebaker did market a 1967 truck light-duty pick-up truck line do you think they would have continued with the CHAMP or TRANSTAR names or come up with something totally new. Didn't the proposed car lines have new names for 1967? cheers, junior

1967 would probably have been a Studebaker-badged Isuzu pickup, provided the proposed line of rebadged Isuzu cars sold well to justify a light commercial line. http://forum.studebakerdriversclub.com/showthread.php?13407-65-Merger&highlight=merger

BTW since the truck rights were sold to Altman along with the Avanti....do these "rights" technically still exist in some legal limbo? Maybe a new Studebaker car is a tough sell....but a truck? Trucks are "hot" now.....(yes I remember the stillborn XUV or whatever it was)

Yes, you did basically ask for the Model NUMBER, the complete model number code would carry the wheelbase at the end assuming the New Design had that length.

1967 = 11, E7 = 1/2 Ton V8.

Of course they had names; Champ, Transtar, Studebaker Deluxe, Coupe Express, but that would be determined by the Sales Dept.

Since Dodge and International "borrowed" Studebaker's names, why not call it the Durango? :rolleyes:

How about calling the new for 67 one half ton trucks S-100's, three quarter ton trucks, S-200's, one ton trucks would be, S-300's.
Chevrolet had C-10's, Ford has F-150's Dodge has D100's etc.

Agree with Studegary. I suspect if you peel the onion back a layer or two, every vehicle manufacturer assigned alpha-numeric designations to their products that did not depend on the common names, which often changed and/or were reassigned to other models. I've owned a 62 Chevy Impala convertible for >50 years, and I long ago learned that if I wanted to find something for it in the GM parts books, I had to remember that it was really a model 62-1867.

Yeah...I understand completely...a series of numbers is excellent for a parts book, but don't lend themselves very well to a forum post intended in jest flavored with sarcasm. My apologies to those who have switched off their "sarcasm detector.":QQ:;)

hmmm...can't imagine a toyota or isuzu based truck, kinda like the S100, 200, 300 concept with the 11E7-XXX model designation, so thinking I'll go with a 1967 S100 (11E7-127)...sounds good to me. thanks all, cheers. junior

I have been told many times that I don't have one -- or maybe it is inoperative.

That's a good one, Dave!

I thought about you when I posted about using DWG on another thread/topic.

I saw that. I'm still using it, too.
