    Here is another nice (1941?) M5 Studebaker with european connection, a panel van in Oslo. It´s a screenshot from the film Gatelangs ("along the streets") from 1951 made by the police to instruct the citizens on how to behave in the traffic. You can see the film at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=StT6ZRwrjxE. The Studebaker appears at 8 minutes sharp. You must see the film, it´s beautiful exposé of cars and city life. Does any of our Norweigan friends know anything about this panel van, or coach built Studebakers in Norway?

    Really nice vans! It´s a pity Studebaker didn´t produce such vans, and vans like the R10 we discuss.

    Interesting how the near "R" Series looks taller, more H.D. like a 3/4 Ton and the far one looks puny like a 1/2 Ton!

    Too bad Studebaker didn't produce or contract out to make something this cool for the US back in the day. I'm thinking about how those old Ford and Chevy panels are popular and desirable with the Hot Rodders.

    Okidoki Bengt, I don't think the rear wheel arches was as nice on the Dutch built ones thou.
    (By the way, it's a pity that Swedish Studebaker owners don't have more kids in school, then the big meet wouldn't be when it's still schooldays...)

    She's very helpful and will provide you any information they got. And for free! You just have to give her the serial number of the van.
    It really is a very nice vehicle.
    Happy new year everyone.
    Great tips Christophe!
    Happy new year

    Hi Nox, we have been in contact with Paul. He had no information about the van, but sent a picture of a couple 1950 Studebaker ambulances that where built by an (unknown) Dutch body shop.

    This would indeed be a super-cool vehicle to see/own here in the USA, even though the 25,000 Euro price is pretty steep....plus having it safely transported to the USA !
    The current dealer's website, though, lists many other classic cars for sale, and they are uniformly pricey. Cases in point: two 1964/5 Mustang convertibles, each at 55,000 Euros !!!

    To those that might be interested in getting closer to the research angle, the D´Leteren Company in Belgium is operating, I believe... so it might be possible to email them a question directly. However, the company is much changed from its founding

    http://www.dieteren.com/

    But, there might be a knowledge person in the PR dept. that would be interested in shedding some light on this vehicle...
