    Super clean build. Too bad some of the pictures are turned.

    Gorgeous; just gorgeous. BP
    We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

    Ayn Rand:
    "You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality."

    Wow - that is something else... How much did the 4 WD add to the price of those pick-ups?

    I don't know the cost. There were 155 1959 4WD trucks built. This says that this pickup is a 4E2D. There were only two of those built for 1959, one in each bed length. Is this truck one of those or was it converted into a 4WD?

    There were only 95 4ED 4X4 ‘built’ in 1959. In addition to that number there were 65 4ED built in the 1960’s. This truck is the only (1 of 1) 4E2D 122 built by Studebaker.

    Thanks for all the nice comments!!

    Superb!! She is truly one terrific unique truck, and she's a Studebaker!
    Congratulations on the final outcome.

    If interested, there is a small piece by Fred Fox in the July 2005 TW page 14 featuring this truck.

    Those 65 were assembled early in 1960, but they were considered to be 1959 models.

    Thanks for bringing back this one of one truck.

    Just a little fun trivia. The first Navy truck left the assembly line on 4-25-1960 the next 25 were delivered in May and the last 39 in June 1960.

    Craig,
    Don't think the truck will make it to Reno... but, you're more than welcome to swing by the house on your way down.

    Wow! An option that costs 57% (pre-tax) of the overall truck price.

    EDIT: For a current comparison, that would be like a $19,950 option on a $35K vehicle.

    Kind of defeats the purpose of having a budget priced truck - this might be why so few were built...

    The Scotsman 4E2 was only $118 cheaper than the 4E7 Deluxe. The cost of the Napco conversion was the same for both.

    OUTSTANDING......nice chrome touches as well......Could you snap a picture of the transfer case shifter? I have a PTO on my 49 and I don't like the cable, I'd rather have a shifter....I'd like to see the hole in the floor better, so I can perhaps do that on mine...

    4X4 Shifter arm and linkage.

    Hi Kevin,
    Here's a couple of pictures of the 4X4 shifting mechanism.
    Thanks for all kind words about my truck.

    Thanks, the second one shows what I wanted to see.....is that slot the transfer case shifter cut in only for the 4x4? That is exactly where I would prefer my PTO to come up at.....that chrome really pops....nice.

    No... originally this truck was purchased new from a Studebaker dealership in Ellensburg Wa. and spent most of its life working on a farm in Eastern Washington. I am the second owner, the original owner was William Shelton.
    Thanks!

    That is an extremely nice restoration. You are to be commended for your fine work. Very impressive. I hope I get an opportunity to see this truck in person sometime soon. We are in the same zone so that is highly likely.
