WOW ... Isn't that a stunning oddity. I wonder how many were built? That is one awesome part hauler/chaser.

Live your dreams!

This one was discussed last night on the truck talk forum. The bidding has gone from $225 then to $380 now. This cool van (what a great camper it would make) had us all ready to sign up for therapy[:p] Kevin

Just a guess, but it was probably a bread truck for a South Bend company. The local bakery used Studebaker vans.

It was posted on 4/18 under "General Discussion", "Radiator hoses for sale, brand new". I replied on the 19th, but no other response.

Ok,when I get back to the apartment tommorrow,Ill get a box and pack them,but it may be Friday before I can get to the Post office to get you a shipping price,because Im working 12 hour shifts the next three days.
Ill just go ahead and send them friday since your a NG'er,if you want,or if you would rather hear what they want to ship it first I can do that to. Damn shipping prices are ruining E-Baying,but Ive already got the carb in a box as I was going to send it to T-Bow,I think the hose will fit in with it.

Thanks a lot. No big rush...just at your convenience (sp?). Don't worry about getting back to me on the freight. Afterall, it's only money, you can't take it with you, so spend it on Stude stuff. Again, thanks.
