I now own a stude truck and would like to get in touch with the "truck guys-gals". I am grateful for any help given. I also am trying to find Mr. Dick Clemens> I lost touch with him shortly after the 2010 meet. Truck info,,, 1959 serial# E7-12091, Model# 4E7-112, Block # 7E I 296 AND/or 535601, Trans # T850-1 wg div, Difrntl# 4-11 45-11 4-09. These are the numbers I have found. There was the "normal" amount of grease, oil and "I am not going to think about what that might have been" and my son involved. SOO,, I am sure there might be some errors. If you have a good phone plan feel free to give me a ring. Before 9:30 pm any night of the week.CST Stan Holcomb 512 970 6469 or reply here Thanks again S.H.

The model and serial number both say it's a '59 model. 4E = 1959 - 7 = 1/2ton with a V8 - 112 = 112" wheelbase 7E-1296 - the 7E indicates a standard dutry 289. The 12396 is just the serial number of this engine. No other "secret codes" hidden in any of the numbers you've given.
