    I've always liked Transtar 4X4s. Always wanted to get one and take the bed off, and replace it with a fire type bed and make it into a grass/brush fire rig. Clay Fire (fire terrority next to SB) has a Transtar 4X4 grass rig and it's one heck of a neat truck.

    I can remember walking by a Chevrolet pickup (with no one in the cab) in the 1950s while picking up trash in a parking lot where I was working. I just reached inside to steer when needed. I see no reason why the same couldn't be done with a Studebaker.

    Hi Gang!
    I just bought a 1959 White Deluxe 3/4 ton 4 x 4 Studebaker original owner Neil Watkins This truck was used by Studebaker as a display truck @ auto shows all over US. They did a utility truck show for clients like Bell Telephone & DWP Companies They took truck up capitol building steps & no one in it! Neil Watson who was a die engineer for Studebaker was trucks caretaker at shows & walked beside truck as it went up steps & after shows were done Neil bought truck for himself. Question? Does anyone ever remember hearing about this stunt or pics or any of neils family members around? Thank You in advance! Bill Fowler mtnmanbf@aol.com
