  • 59 pickup 4E Series

    The serial No. is 4E3D375 and the motor No. is 4E7807. The final assembly date was 2-13-59 and went to Grundy, VA. It has less than 23,000 original miles on it and is still running on the original tires. If I could, I would like to know how many of them were made. Also if possible how much is it worth?

        Welcome B. Bandy, that would depend on what kind of info you're looking for. The cubic inches and type of engine, weight capacity trim level and model and year can be verified, if you give us the Serial Number and model number from the stainless steel plate on the floor below the drivers seat by door when open. There is also a small metal tag on the right side of the firewall under the hood either screwed on below the glove compartment or wired to the hood hinge bracket. The 4E tells me that it is a 1959 Studebaker, the number after that would tell us the tonage and engine type.
        The Studebaker National Museum has copies of the original factory build slip available that will tell you the date ordered, built and among many other things the place delivered to. They have a website:
        http://www.studebakermuseum.org/
        If this truck was originally equipped with 4 wheel drive from the factory, you have a very rare truck. In those days very few of any make were built, as no one but Power and Phone Co's ever dreamed of going off road in a truck!

            I have owned two 1959 4E pickups. I currently have a 4E7, but it is not one of the rare 4X4s. The 4E engine indicates the bigger six cylinder (245 cubic inch - commonly referred to as a Commander engine, but the truck name is Work Star 245 Six).

            The D in your serial number indicates a factory built 4X4 (there have been many conversions). A factory built 4X4 will have a rear mounted fuel tank and a side mounted spare tire. A 4E3 is a Scotsman model (the lowest level, plain truck, but with the bigger six cylinder).

            There were a total of 155 4X4 trucks made in 1959. Of this total, nine (9) were 4E3D-112 and four (4) were 4E3D-122. The 112 and 122 refers to the wheelbase in inches. This is from a total of 1048 4E3 models in 1959. Which wheelbase is your truck and does it have a factory pickup box?

            As far as value, it is difficult to guesstimate based on the information that I have without seeing the truck, or even pictures of it. I would put it in the $3000 to $10,000 range.

            Is this the same truck that a fire company is selling?

            I highly recommend that you join the Studebaker Drivers Club, from this web site. As a new member, you can one year's membership and 12 publications for $19.95.

                I had to go and and check the wheelbase and it is 122" with a factory box; the fuel tank is in the rear with the spare tire on the side. Your right, it is pretty much a plain Jane. I don't have pictures yet but I hope to have some posted sometime tomorrow. I appreciate all the information I have received.

                I am considering selling the truck but I don't know anything about a fire station.

                    You have one of two (2) 1959 4E3D-122 trucks fitted with a factory pickup box. I have also owned a vehicle that was one of two. Rarity does NOT always relate to value.

                    I asked about the fire company because there is currently an original Studebaker 4X4 for sale by bids by a fire company. The last that I knew, the highest bid was $5000. I believe that it is near the end of their time to take bids.
