Thought I would toss a $20 snipe bid on this ebay photo (above) that ended on the 20th and add another photo to my collection. As it turned out $120 would have been far short!! This was actually a press release shot sent out by the Dodge division of the Chrysler Corp in early 1943. I am not sure of the reason for the high selling price, whether it was a Dodge collector or an Alcan Hwy historian. One thing sure at that price it wasn’t a Studebaker collector! http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd=1&item=180205143157

When I saw the photo it immediately reminded me of one of Studebaker’s color magazine ads from 1943. It seems that the artist Frederick Tellander, who executed most of Studebaker’s WWII ads, must have used this photo as inspiration for the ad below. Note even the position and clothing of the soldier at right are similar in both.

Perhaps I should point out what is obvious to most old time Studebaker owners that the second truck in the b&w photo is a Studebaker 6X6 while the lead vehicle is a much smaller Dodge. Some of the over 190,000 Studebaker WWII trucks built between 1941 and 1945 were utilized in building the Alcan Hwy.

Well, you didn't win it, but at least they didn't put watermarks all over it.

Must've been pretty warm in that B&W pic,
as the 'Fairbanks Freight' winterfront wasn't installed
(like it is in the art pic);)

I was driving on the Alaska Highway yesterday, from Mile 98 to Fort St. John and back. Major traffic jam on the southbound leg, aggravated by snowy pavement, saw two trucks in the ditch. No Studebakers were harmed.

I think the first truck is a Dodge, and the second one is a Stude.

The Stude. probably had to PUSH the Dodge, from Whitehorse to Fairbanks! LOL! :D

I just finished watching Alaska: Big America on the History Channel. They showed the Fairbanks Freight Studebaker truck on the move. It was the lead vehicle. There was no Dodge truck in sight. There were other trucks that looked like Studebakers.

I purchased the ad in Richard's first email, showing the color drawing of the Studebaker 6x6 on the ALcan Highway, just a couple weeks ago when I went to a Battle of the Bulge reenactment and celebration at Fort Indiantown Gap, PA, with Ed Filer and his son Ted. Longtime readers may recognize the Filers as the Studebaker dealers in my hometown of Greenville, PA, from 1926 to the end. There were many vendors of WWII memorabilia set up at the reenactment/celebration.

We slept in barracks there, and befriended a real veteran of the Bulge, from Maryland. His name was Morris ("call me Mo") and we took him with us to the nearby AACA Museum in Hershey (great place...they have a 3,000 mile '53 Commander Starliner and also had a '61 Champ on loan there). "Mo" wore his uniform to the "USO Show" they had on Saturday night of the 'Bulge' celebration...still looked great in it! A fun and educational time. I have even more respect for the WWII generation after being there and talking with some 'Bulge" veterans.

There were tons of Jeeps, a very early VW Beetle (near the 'German' barracks, of course!), and some big WWII-era trucks but no Studebakers though (sigh).

I went out to the highway and measured the tracks in the snow. Definitely Studebaker tracks.[}:)]

In all seriousness, I don't believe there were any Chevy trucks used on the Alcan Highway project. Studebakers were the 2.5 ton truck of choice. GM trucks got used in the ETO. Simplified supply issues. Studebakers were used in Alaska, and were sold to allies, mostly to Russia, but also to Britain and Australia.

Not to get off topic, but this reminds me of a gathering of the alumni of the First Special Service Force at Fort Bragg, NC a few years ago. A neighbor took me as he knew my Studebaker interest. The Musuem he was assinged to on base had two Weasels. They were on display (I got to drive one -- what fun!). I talked with some of the vets that actually used the first ones out in Montana when training for their original assignmet (In Norway and was cancelled.) They all loved the Weasel both then and now. Some wonderful and also some horrifying stories. It indeed was an education.

This discussion brings back memories. I drove that road in Dec 71 in a 65 Chevelle SS. heading for Baltimore with just enough money for gas.
Burnt starter up at Lower Laird River Lodge. Got a pull start and drove remaining 3000 or so miles sleeping in car. Would shut if off to
check oil on a hill, kick start and leave it running the rest of the time. Don't remember much about the trip except it was 1200 miles of dirt
from Alaskan border to Dawson Creek with the exception of about 30 miles around Whitehorse. I guess it's paved now, but I remember it as
rough as hell. Thought I would never get off that road. The things you do when your too young to know any better.

Well, you've covered more of it than me, then I did do the stretch from Mayo to Dawson City back around 1981 or so, and it was all gravel then. Now the entire route is paved. There are even passing lanes on hills in some stretches here in B.C. I drove as far as Ft. Nelson a couple of years ago, and it was all paved. Right now, I'm in the bush not far from Wonowon. (Mile 101).
