    Nice, I do not believe I have EVER seen a T or C Cab Pickup with Full Factory Tint, rarely a Tinted Windshield even.

    Of course it was available, it's just that Dealers almost never ordered it after 1958 on Cars or Trucks, here on the West Coast anyway.

    8E5-138888 - 112 WB - T4 cab - parts truck in Central Texas

    This was the very last Studebaker truck my grandfather used on his farm in the early 1970s. Mostly used to take bales of hay to feed cattle. It had the wide bed replaced by a stepside, and the engine was replaced by a flathead champion and a through the floor gear shift - need to ask my father why those changes were made.

    Update: The truck came out a junk yard and was missing its engine. There was an older engine/transmission back at the farm that was in decent shape so it was installed in the truck and a hole was cut in the floor for the gear shifter to go through. Not sure why the narrow bed is on the truck, but it might have been on it when they pulled it home.

    Hi, I'll add my 1964 Champ to the registry.
    Owner: Robert

    I bought this truck from a nice man in Lubbock, Texas in Nov. 2016. I paid a transporter to deliver it.

    1964 Studebaker Champ---V8 engine w/factory dual exhaust---factory 4 speed floor manual shifter (?)---long box/8.5 ft.
    odometer stopped at about 63,500 mi.---engine looks untouched---all original glass---inside cab truck is very nice, original naugahyde (?) bench seat and headliner are both in very nice original condition--- radio is original---sat under a carport for about 11 yrs before I got it---tires are rotten--totally inoperable right now--all original powertrain components---driver door latch is bad, must shut real hard---has serious rust in passenger door bottom and 1/4 panel---prior owner's uncle did a DIY replacement of rusted floorboard pans---there is surface rust about the truck---underneath looks a lot better than the truck's body does---I pray no real bad issues underneath---I think the engine is a 259 cu in w/maybe a single barrel---it is a sort of tan mixed with rust color outside---the bed was painted a medium green(?)---previous owner drove it 2-3 yrs while going to Jr College in Lubbock, then I think he got a newer vehicle---he said it coughs when starter fluid is sprayed in it. Tomorrow a local mechanic is supposed to come take a look if weather calms down . My goal is to get it running, stopping, and braking like a truck should. I plan to work on rust myself, and cut worst out, and study videos about body filler. I do not want it to look pretty, it looks so awesome now, sometimes I just go and look at it. My plumber loves it, he was here to fix water heater and his Dad was a Studebaker guy, he even loved the 8.5 foot bed ( only a plumber could do that right ). The VIN number is: E721420. Last, I guess I'll need to install seat belts once I get it running.

    Hi Robert, Welcome to the SDC and to the SDC Forum!

    The Stromberg Model WW 6-132, 2 Barrel Carb. does not mean it is a 259, either a 259 or a 289 would have the very SAME Carb. unless ordered with a 4 Barrel.

    Check the Engine number STAMPED into the Machined flat, Pad on driver's side of the Front Corner, on Top of the Block.

    3E = a Standard 259.
    5E = H.D. 259

    6E = H.D. 289
    7E = Std. 289

    I know it's a Wacky sequence, with NO "4" and the Heavy Duty 289 ahead of the Standard one, but THAT is how they were Numbered/Identified.
    The numbers following those are just the Engine build sequence.

    8E7-22249 - 112 WB - T6 cab - photos from the 53rd International Meet in South Bend, Indiana, May 2017.

    Ordered from factory with 16 inch wheels, twin traction, heavy duty front and rear spring, four speed transmission, and 4.27 rear. Shipped to Wyoming. Restored by Ross Ball of Lorena, Texas back in the early 1990s. Ross updated the interior and did some engine modifications to make it more modern.

    Thanks landriopa for the two trucks added to the forum - might be the most by someone other than myself in a couple years...

    And it looks like this 8E7 was already on the list....

    I'm going back through this and digging the survivorness of the A.J.'s Overhead Door truck.
    1963 Champ "Daisy Stu Bludebaker"- sometimes driver
    1957 Silver Hawk "Josie"- picking up the pieces after an unreliable body man let it rot for 11 years from an almost driver to a basket case
    1951 Commander Starlight "Dale"- basket case, next project after the Hawk
    1947 Champion "Sally"- basket case
    1941 Commander Land Cruiser "Ursula"- basket case

    Also digging the survivorness of Studey's Speed shop. I'm really digging the orange and tusk ivory of #58 because it reminds me of Allis-Chalmers orange and creme. Grandpa Skow had the AC dealership in Moorhead, Iowa.

    8E12-6825 - 122 WB - T6 cab - Photo on inside cover of Turning Wheels, Vol 26, No 12, January 1994.

    Write up on the photograph: "Not everyday do we receive an current photo of original owner standing with their Studebaker. Our inside front cover features just such a combination. Shown are members Howard and Cleo Taylor with their 1964 V8 3/4 ton Champ pickup (8E12-122) that they purchased new from Grisham Motors in Springfield, Missouri, on January 30, 1964. The Champ, serial number E12-6825, features a Deluxe cab and 4 speed transmission. Howard used the Champ in his welding service from 1964 to 1976. Besides being used as a work truck, it also hauled the Taylor's cab-over camper, as well as their boat. Their son, Dusty, used for a few months after Howard retired it and then it was put in storage with 240,000 miles until 1991 when restoration was begun."

    8E7-22275 - 122 WB - T6 cab - Photo and write up featured in Turning Wheels, Vol 26, No 12, December, 1994. Page 6.

    Write up: "On the left is Herman (Thoms) 1964 (serial number E7-22,275) long bed 259 V8 1/2 ton model (8E7-122). This pickup was previously owned by Frost & French, the former Southern California Studebaker parts distributor. Herman picked it up when Studebakers West purchased the Frost & French inventory in 1987."

    I thought that Champs didn't have chrome bumpers?

    Nope - no factory produced Champs came with chrome front (or rear) bumpers. There might have been a dealer or two who might have had them chromed to dress them up, and clearly a lot of people who have restored these trucks have had them chromed...

    I just became to proud owner of this 1964 Champ, first thing up is to redo all the brakes, new head gaskets and change all filters and fluids. Much more to come after that as well. I already have a production order on order from the Studebaker museum, I’ll update with all the info when that comes in. This is my first Studebaker and I’m really excited! My father in law has a 61 Lark Convertible that he’s working on at the moment as well.

    Welcome Chris, to the SDC and to the SDC Forum!
    I have welcomed at least THREE New Members here in the last 2 days, that's a VERY GOOD Sign for the future of our beloved Marque!!

    This is a VERY easy Site to navigate, it just takes some getting used to it.

    To reference a certain Post, you go to the Post you want to comment on, then use the "Reply with Quote" button at the Lower Right. it will then be copied and you can delete the unrelated portions if you wish to shorten the Post and save Server Space, and then adding your own comment.

    You can later Revise your post with the "Edit Post" Button and then "Save", unlike some other Sites, and even Delete one, posted in error or an unnecessary one.
    A NEW String you started, cannot be Deleted by yourself, you can ask one of our Moderators to do that.



    This is a very nice looking "T" Cab 8E7-112 T4 Standard Cab Champ Pickup.

    The interior has been greatly upgraded with New redesigned Seat Covers and Door Panels.
    Carpeting and a Deluxe Horn Ring from a '61-'66 Regal Lark Type have been added and an INSIDE Hood Release from a '59/'60 Lark, a good feature!
