        Studebaker missed the boat when they didn't take their trucks to Hamilton.

          I like it , the 66 grille looks better on that. 66 larks were ugly with that grille.

            Amazing how similar that looks to a '67 Chevy half-ton. Very cool!

              Clark, Thanks for noticing that. I've thought that for a long time too.

                Would that be a 60-64 cab or is it a modified 4 dr? it looks like a C bed.

                  clonelark, look at the W/S. That's the biggest give away.

                    It appears to be BOTH! It is clearly a '64-'66 4 Dr. Body with the cowl induction fresh air heating and defrosting system not available on Champs, but the cab corners and back wall are most likely from a "T" Cab Champ and the box could be any P1 box, maybe a '60 Champ Shortbed originally 6 1/2 Ft. but it appears cut-off in the rear possibly to fit a '66 4 Dr. frame.

                    This is one SWEET looking well done Custom, [] it is too well done to be a Rat Rod, so my preference would be to PAINT it.

                        When you think of the amount of work it takes to change dies required for stamping, the question comes to my mind is why did Studebaker continue to use sections of the car line not sold after 1960, not to mention the additional parts such as guages, heater, ect that would have made more sense, more modern & have the economies of less additional parts to stock the assembly line. This is a great example of what should have been. If it had been taken, the break even point would have been lower, the product more saleable & perhaps the auto division may have lasted longer.

                          Man, do I ever love that truck! I wonder how are it is to put that front clip on a Champ pickup. I assume it was a Champ pickup.
                          I really like the '66 grill set up, even on cars. I guess I like the simplicity of it.
