  • Bigsy, a Zip Van for you!

    Bob,

    This thing is right up your alley. Just clean it up and you could deliver all your fruits and vegetables to the local farmer's market in it. Don't let it get away!

    Gary, you were right. I emailed you through the Forum on Sunday and it came back undelivered.
    Eric Studebaker (ERJOST on this Forum) is looking for a Commander six for his Champ.
    This also poses a question. What would be involved in making a 245cid from a smaller displacement Commander six?

            I've said this here before - I was looking at one of these in a Fresno wrecking yard some years ago. Guy was willing to sell it to me for $450 IIRC. My thoughts were to fix it up and use it on one of the contract mail routes in this area.
            Of course, even tho I (supposedly) had "veterans preferance" in being selected to run a route, there were other factors that worked against me (even tho I aced the carriers test that they made me take). As to those "other factors" - this is not the forum to discuss them and I have long since gotten over the fact that I didn't get a route.
            In spite of that, I've often thought I might like to have one of these to just get around in. Anyone know what was the standard rear ratio in these? I've heard they're pretty squirrely in high winds or over about 50 MPH!
            Maybe I could buy this thing and use it to run an ice cream route![:0] Hey kiddies! Try our Lark bar or the Hawk Sundae. Or how about a Champsicle? How about the Starlight Scoop with the optional chocolate hard-topping?[]

            No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.

                Would the Turning Wheels get here sooner--[?]or later[?] in a Zip Van being driven by Mr Biggs[?] One of those "Imponderables", I guess.
