    Pretty cool, Todd! Being a mail carrier I'd love to have the Rural Route one. Just can't pay 24.99 for one brochure

    I will be watching, though!

        BAMS,

        Frank Drumheller ended up with a 1963 Rural Router that was owned by the father of one of my high school classmates. Mr. Napier used it to deliver mail until it was swamped in Hurricane Camille in '69. Sam Miller then acquired it and later sold it to Frank. I believe it then passed to Dale Early who sold it on e-Bay several years ago.

            Stephen Cade had a rural router, maybe 5 years ago. I don't know where it went, or who he sold it to.

                I have the 63 rural route Lark brochure and I noticed that the windshield wipers are opposite to the left hand drive Larks. Did Studebaker change the windshield wipers on right hand drive cars or did they just flop the photo?

                The grille emblem and the letters on the license plate are correct.

                    Phooey, Leonard! You just ruined a good Pop Quiz!

                    You are right: Through the years, Studebaker did, in fact, create some -but not all- Rural-Router brochures by simply flipping negatives to make the cars look like right-hand drive. But, as you observe, this sleight-of-photo-lab-hand became easier to detect with the advent of parallel-action wipers in 1963. Yes, they did change wiper positions in the cowl for RHD Rural Routers, and this car appears to be an actual photo of a "real" Rural-Router for that reason.

                    But it pays to look closely - some [photos] aren't![:0] [8D]BP
                    We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

                    Ayn Rand:
                    "You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality."

                    G. K. Chesterton: This triangle of truisms, of father, mother, and child, cannot be destroyed; it can only destroy those civilizations which disregard it.

                        HOLY COW would I love to have one today for actual delivery! Not practical for regular use, but would be fun to do for a........

                        Lark...............[)]

                        I'm looking for a Zip Van for the same reason; As a carrier it would be the perfect cross-promotion for the USPS and mostly, Studebakers! I could get national exposure for Studebakers, and have a blast doing it[^]

                        Someday I'll find one for me....
