Many thanks to StudeRich, Dwain G.. Goerhea and Tom B. for their help in identifying the part that I need. Finding it continues to be a challenge. I spoken many Studebaker enthusiasts across the country and nobody seems to have one. The Champ is a 6 cyl. 3 speed with overdrive. Missing is the correct throttle linkage with the paddle that hits the overdrive switch on the firewall when the gas pedal is floored. Apparently, this version of linkage was unique to 1963 & 1964 6 cyl. Champs. The worse case is that I will have to fabricate a piece and have it welded on. The best case is obviously, finding one! If there is anyone who has one or can make a suggestion as to where one may be found, I would sincerely appreciate it! Happy New Year! :)

I parted out such a truck about 10 or 12 years ago. I'll have a look and see if the piece is still here. I can't promise that it is, but it might be.;)
