    C9, right? With the swing-out windshield for military or export I believe...

            If this is a 1945 truck, it would be the M15 one ton pickup. Studebaker got permission from the gov't to build these trucks in 1945 due to a critical shortage of civilian trucks. About 4000 of these were produced and all were powered by the Champion 6 engine (as it was the only engine in production at the time). All had the military swing out windshield as well.

            Much has been written about these trucks in TW and various books on Studebaker history. A neat vehicle to be sure. [8D]

              I love that truck and its swing out windshield. I bet that Champion engine got pretty hard work out in that one ton truck. I bet with a Commnander engine it would hum right a long though. But of course during those days you did with what you had----and they did. I would love to have that truck, no matter the engine. It is just plain cool.

                Could a 185 engine with come internal cleanup be made to look externally like a 1945 Champion engine? I hear it can with a 1954 Champion.
