      ....If you'll pan to the left out of the frame you'll see some unimportant R4 of some sort [)].

      I take credit for the photo, I took it last year at the museum, and it's a real stunner of a Zip Van especially in person, but it's all good .

      I'd have to go back and look at the records again, but I think that six was a display to showcase the engines Studebaker used, so if it looks especially good, it's probably not a big surprise.

          Oh no, not that flat four, the other *ahem* R4(V8, blue in color, sporting dual four barrels, exponentially larger in displacement) [)]....

            Andy Beckman emailed me fresh photos about a week ago. I'm happy to say that the Zip Van is no longer in the basement corner and is now on the upper floor. [8D]
