We bought two, but the yellow job is different animal.

niiiiiiice.

Is that a custom job, or were there CEs built with eight cylinder engines?

Either way, do want!

Did anybody notice that they put 40 front grills, and hood side panels. (39's are only suppose to have 1 strip on the removable side panel not 2). The interior is not stock. No way would I ever pay $70K for a truck with that many authenticity errors. It looks like they did a very nice job restoring it though.

They are not errors, it's a mild custom. i.e. The President front clip, custom interior and 8 cylinder engine.

I don't think any were factory built with president parts?

I was just admiring that over on eBay.
Very nice, indeed.

I agree it is really a stunning vehicle. It was done for Jim Brown of Elkhart, Indiana and when he ran into some financial problems it was listed locally for sale and eventually was run thru Ebay several times. I had a chance to buy it for $40,000 but passed. It is really a “made” truck. By that I mean that it was “made” from three different vehicles. A 1939 President engine and chassis, a 1939 Coupe Express body and box with 1940 headlights and grilles. Of course Studebaker never offered an eight cylinder Coupe Express. It was not sold new by Hodak Motors in Kankakee, Illinois. I believe that information may have come off a window price sticker I made up for my ’38 Coupe Express which I sold last August (see pic below). Also the ’38 was the lowest production year with 1000 units not the ‘39. This truck is beautiful but a buyer willing to pay $70,000 should be made aware that it is heavily modified.

Nope it's a custom, but that goes unmentioned in the ebay listing.

All these bolts will certainly keep that cross-spring in place...

Guess I was thinking the original would only have four - but I have been known to be wrong - just ask my wife :D

Coupe Express' are lovely vehicles to look at and I'd rather have that custom than a stocker. Every time I get the urge, I just go try to get in one. They just don't fit larger guys.

thnx, jack vines

I could fit in that very nicely,but i'd have to have a huge wallet.Which i dont.
Both CE's are beautiful in the're own way I really like Richards bumper guards, and i'm not a fan of bumper guards.

JP, it is a winner but the listing is a little miss leading unlike your write-ups on the vehicles you sell via eBay.

Richard like yours better as it is pure and authentic.

That is a great looking truck.

What are those handwritten notes taped to the left side of the dash? I could only make out a word or 2 but something about "hazard" and "disengage". Instructions on how to start it??

There's a similar yellow '38 with the president 8 engine done as a rod that I saw at the Spokane meet in '05.

It could be instructions not to disengage the over drive while in motion.

I had to dry out my keyboard last night after drooling over this posting. Of course now I will have to do it again. I do love this truck. I like the way it has been modified, but the seller surely should have informed folks that it is modified and not original. The write up almost had me believing it was original.

The only thing this Coupe Express needs is the four carb set up Gary Ash has put together for his Indy Car.

I too will have to go out and get a lottery ticket today.

Meh, they spelled "amenities" with two M's, and I just lost all interest.
