    Very nice truck. Love the patina and the honest work truck look. It's also one clean truck...just a few fixes and she's there. No need for a major resto on this one. Super rare find!!

    I thought that there were 22 1959 Deluxe V8 3/4 ton 4X4s built, of which 17 had a pickup box.
    Good luck with an interesting and rare truck!

    Buddy of mine remembers the last one - think it was being used in a wrecking yard last time he saw it in that same area (that might have been more than two decades ago).

    Would love to see what the one that went to Arabia looked like - twelve inch wheels - that is pretty small.

    I bet it had those big 'balloon' desert tires on it, and the wheel openings were enlarged some. Note the rim size on the vehicles in this thread: http://forum.studebakerdriversclub.c...ghlight=desert

    OK - so a 1/2 ton 4x4, 3/4 ton 4x4 - guess all that is left is to find a 1 ton 4x4...

    Great looking Studebaker truck! Great find, she cleaned up quite nicely!
    Does it come with a spare? The 1971 Playboy calendar must be optional.
    Thanks for sharing all the fantastic photos and videos! Good luck with "Blackie"

    You have included one non-Deluxe (Sonora, CA). That is why your count is one more than mine.

    1959 4E12D 4X4s

    Bill reproduced an accurate list of the 1959 model 4E12D 4X4s and Gary had the correct mathematics.

    From the factory-
    Total 1959 3/4 ton 4X4 trucks- 23
    Total of these with Deluxe cabs- 22
    Total of these with Standard cab- 1
    Total of these with pickup boxes-18
    Total of these sold as chassis/cabs, stake or flatbed bodies-5
    Total of these built with paint code 5950(Black)- 1

    Note: the Doha, Arabia truck was probably equipped with 700X16-8 plys (I suspect a typo from the researcher, not Bill).

    Steve; Were you aware that your paint code is shared with only one other 4E12D-122-C4 truck? One of 2 is pretty rare! Also having a build date of Nov. 8, 1958 means a birthday is coming up soon! I'm sure it gets a lot of attention when the two of you hit the highway. Congratulations.
