    Thanks for the response Dave Warren, I guess you are right, 1st showing a "Junior" then a "Senior" had seen this mentioned in Hemmings, didn't know what it meant - must be an American thing.

    I once saw a '39 CE modified with a '49 2R rear glass. It looks great, and a lot better than the Ace Hardware rear window that the trucks came with.

    I have to say. I think I'll always be a sucker for the '36-41 Studebaker non-Champions.

    Matt; If you saw the rear glass on the sedan you would understand. Much too large and really out of proportion for the Coupe Express. Of course the sedans and coupes had rear sloping back glass whereas the CE was vertical, just wouldn't work. I believe the glass they used was appropriate insofar as aesthetics but woefully lacking insofar as visibility is concerned. You might be interested to learn that the original CE did not come with an interior rear view mirror as standard equipment.

    Congratulations, Richard!
    I guess this breaks your run/rule of not having vehicles judged. I can understand the tribute reason that you made this exception.

    Studebaker did indeed invent cool. That is way beyond cool! Beyond groovy cool even.

    I have a second '39 CE that is complete and running but needs complete restoration. If anyone is interested let me know and I will send images and particulars.

    Congratulations, Dick, on the win. A very nice CE, indeed.

    Dave, the '39 in Calgary is more than a shell, in fact, i think there are parts of 2 or more vehicles in the package. It has been on offer for a pretty healthy price for a couple of years now. It would be quite a project, but it is a rare and desirable car. I saw an ad for it on the Calgary Kijiji site a few weeks ago.

    There was a 39 CE on eBay out of Calgary that didn't get a bid. It was barely a shell. I kept looking at Dick's on the cover of TW and thinking of the possibilities. That's one inspirational ride. Congrats.
