    Those headlights were added by a PO and Ed made an attempt to smooth them out a little. He has a set of fenders that are much better with side mounts and proper headlights. It's a work in progress and 90% of the people that see it have no idea if the lights are correct or not. He's just putting a rather rare vehicle in front of as many people as he can, promoting Studebaker and having fun. That can't be all bad.

      Do any Forum members know if this cool Coupe Express changed hands at South bend or not?

        I don't know but its a really nice truck. Much too nice to restore. Actually its got a newish interior, very well done and a late model OHv v8 (not sure which brand Chevy?) Its ready to enjoy. Great patina.

          Isn't that the one that George DeBono rescued some 40 years ago? The headlights give it away.

            Yes, Roy. Read the link in post #15.

            As...uh...shall I say "odd" as the headlights are, that's become the way everyone's been able to keep track of this CE throughout it's history.
