OK, I'm not often stumped by a Studebaker model,but I am today. In my pars stash, I have a parts book for a 3R right hand drive, 4 wheel drive with a V8 no less ! It's a big truck,160 inch wheelbase. Export model for export ???
Also found a set of the 1959 Lark Regal tail light lenses with the chrome bead, a 53-55 emergency brake warning light kit. Both not often found.

The 3R48's were built for the Indian Army.
Theres a picture of one in the book "The Studebaker Century" on the page label Commercials of the Fifties. The one in the picture is LHD.
