    I could be wrong, but didn't Studebaker have some military contracts to fill before shutting everything down?

      Yes but not clear out to '68. I believe the last ones filled were '65

          Partial credit for looking like the REO's that came out from the same buildings that the 6X6's rolled out from under Studebaker. As an aside, one of those big guys is for sale out here in Gulf War colors.

            According to the Langworth/Fox book, Kaiser Jeep purchased the Stude military truck contract, along with the Chippewa Ave plant, in late 1964. However, they do not make it clear exactly when the transfer took place and when the trucks stopped being equipped with the Studebaker Corp builder's plate.
