Yeah, we're about done with our dump truck. But here's another one of our projects that we done a few years ago. It came out of our junkyark, and currently resides in the Stude Natl. Museum. A ZIP VAN!!! http://www.georgiastudebaker.com/zip1.htm

Quite a good job that the club did!:)

It's a real shame that other clubs don't do the same & put them into the museumn for display. There are so many good project vehicles out there that could benefit from the expertise of real craftsmen (& ladies) like the S GA Club has - I'm sure others could do as well if they had the great leadership (Membership) that y'all have down there.
GREAT JOB!!

BTW the dump truck turned out to also be an admirable display of your clubs determination & talent!

Thanks a lot! We have SEVERAL great people in our chapter, who don't mind breaking a sweat to preserve a good ole Studebaker. I'm very pround to be the President's grandson. [8D] I have been since the chapter was formed in 1993, with the exception of 2 years. This truck has overall been a very fun project. Grandpa and I drove it accross the state and back, and we're both gonna really hate to see it go. [V] But, hpoefully, a good Stude guy will get it and we won't feel so bad about it leaving. I guess it just gives us inspiration to get busy on the 49 fire truck, the 50 wrecker, or the 56 1 1/2 pulp wood truck. Old trucks are great, and I (if I could) wouldn't trade ours for anything!!!
