That photo is so nice it could tempt me to go to the U.S during snow time. Thanks Dick for sharing this one.

Were there a lot of them built? I don't think I've ever seen one. Not that I've seen every Studebake made.

Put a stake flatbed on it and it would be the perfect Christmas tree-getter...and lawn mower transport.

Too bad that Studebaker didnt entirely replace the C cab with the T cab in 1960. They then would have had modern looking heavy duty pickups and trucks which would have likely led to more sales. Does anyone know if they ever put a GM diesel in a T cab? As for all of those 1963 Studebaker cars in the lot....I want all of them! :)

Yes, but then they would have lost the "Under the hood accessibility" that the C-Cabs offered! ;)[}:)]:D

PS: I love the T-Cab dually and certainly would not kick it out of my garage! ;)[:p]

A friend of mine owns this RV. It is a 63 or 64 and was built on a Studebaker. It is a low mileage RV in great shape. He tried to sell it a few years back and couldn't find anyone that would come to Oregon and drive it home. It is too big to ship. He is now thinking of removing the Camper and making it into a flat bed. The truck is just to good to sit. He no longer uses it. If some was interested in it I could get them the info. Bob

The above is copied from a posting last fall. I assume that it is also a 1 ton dually type. Has anyone purchased this fine truck yet?

Richard, Terrific photo. It's interesting to look at a picture during, hopefully, better times in South

How I would love to have that Champ. However, here's one in the San Fransisco Bay Area:

Judging by the colour of the firewall, this truck was originally a medium to dark green.

That is nice and also would injoy owning one.
What does the nameplate on the door say? I just can make it out to say CHAMP.

I wonder if Bob (Stehlik) could tell us if Jerry (54champ) ended up buying beautiful Champ-er? If not, a little contact info in the original post would have been nice. It's no longer listed in the Cascade web page. If it did sell, I wonder how much for? Gosh, I'd love to have it!:D

Tom, all three of them say 'CHAMP' on the door. The Champ-er is a '64 and the other two are '63s. IIRC, the Champ's grille sported the Studebaker script on it's bottom in '64. Also note the lack of trim on the fenders. It appears to be a '64.

And you can have it, Joe, for around six to nine hundred dollars (plus shipping). Stephan A Williams, in the 'Bay Area had one and it's for sale.;) I wanted to get it, but can't. So... go for it!:D

Ron, is that a legitimate one ton or is it a lighter duty model with add-on duals?

That San Fransisco truck appears to have 2R10/11 type wheels. Home made I am sure.

Chris, I have seen pictures from two different angles, however you seem to have knowledge of more than one prototype being built??

Just seems unlikely they would have built more than one prototype given the Corporations situation money wise.

That's a lovely truck - look at that shine! Paint looks a mile deep. (But I'd rather own that Cruiser just behind it!)
