YES!

Hopefully RQ will chime in here and show us a factory photo of one.

If it is indeed 'factory', its RARE!!!

And then there's that wagon over to the side of it. But it is not in his other sale items list??

Look at the front on picture, the car in front of it has some rear fender flares, I can't make it out but resembles a sand dune car or Desert explorer can anybody verify?

Indeed, this was one of Studebakers more novel adaptations of the early Champions. It was done by Edwards but was a legitimate factory offering and is even shown in the Studebaker parts book. They actively marketed it to dealers as a commercial unit at a cost of $736.50 only $41.50 more than the standard 2 door sedan. The partition was another $18. The use of the name sedan delivery may be a misnomer as I always felt that utility sedan was a better fit and indeed that is what they began calling it in 1941. As stated above it was simply a two door sedan F body with a Coupe floor pan and the metal panels blanking out the rear windows. More information can be found on page 11 of the April 1996 Turning Wheels. That particular car now on ebay (serial G71165) has been available for years and is a desert car. I called on it maybe 30 years ago when it was owned by a man named Cripe. It has been on Ebay before and was also on Craigslist. It is one of two known survivors the other is a street rod.

Also offered on the coupe body in this era was a Coupe Delivery, Ambulance Coupe and Sedan Coupe. All novel creations aimed at a very narrow speciality market. The photo above a '41 Coupe Delivery.

If you had one of these at a Judged show event, would you enter it in the car class or commercial class?:)

You would get points deducted for not having a back seat. And no side glasses.

Richard;
Are you aware if the top car pictured is a factory publicity photo after a finished fleet order in Wheeling, W. VA, or a dealer picture? Also, is the 8 in the white circle on the side just a car number in the dealer fleet?

The photo of the '40 was sent in to the factory by the Dulaney Motor Co. of Wheeling, WV for possible use in the Studebaker News dealer paper. As noted above the News editor opted to use another (rear) view of the car for the May 24, 1940 issue. The caption shown above is what I know about the car and its use. Incidentally six other Sedan Deliveries are shown in the same article.

Since this topic came up about delivery vehicles how about the 37 Grocer Seems this would be a rare one.

There's a diecast model being offered here pretty soon, are there factory photo's or production numbers?

Here's a link to the vehicle, the site has copy write on the photo itself so i can't post for all to see here.

darn! I'd love that car. The reserve has to be at least $1K as that's what wants for a deposit after the sale. I'd drive to Vegas for it.

Studebaker offered a 1937 four door woody (Suburban) on the Dictator chassis but it was nothing like the one shown in the photo. The bodies were built by a company called U.S. Body and Forging. None are known to have survived. No production figures are available since they carried a model designation of J-5 the same as the Coupe Express. A total of 3500 J-5's were assembled but there is no breakdown as to how many were the Coupe Express and how many the Suburban.

Thanks Richard

I wasn't sure if the model was an accurate representation, or an attempt to make something similar from the molds they already had to produce the hurse.

I saw a 32 ford street rod two door with a sedan delivery style rear door with a window in it. Looked pretty cool!
