    If Ever, there was a Niche Market SOMEWHERE: Saudi Arabia, South America, Africa, USA you name it, for Specialized Vehicles: Commercial, Military etc. Studebaker would fill it!

    So it would not surprise me that Engines would also be sold if needed.

    Back in the early 1950's there were quite a few Champion Engines for Weasels being sold off from Surplus Military material Co's. In Fully Cosmoline or Wax coated Boxes and packed for overseas waterproof shipment.
    I still have the waterproofed Gasket Set from one Engine Dad bought.

    Perhaps 'quite popular' was an overstatement. My Studebaker crazy father owned an early inboard that had a Champion 6 replacement for the original Gray Marine whatever.
    Used to play in when I was a kid, and grew up with it parked out back. We never did get it launched.

    Studebaker sold 'crate engines' for decades, end users employed them as they chose.
    The Studebaker Champion 170 six was quite popular with boat builders. And I wouldn't be surprised that various Studebaker engines were purchased to power CD sirens and sawmills as well as for various military applications.
