    Gosh, such a nice truck. I certainly don't need another champ, having three already. Still, this has such beautiful paint, not to mention the rebuilt motor and OverDrive tranny. How to get it over the three thousand miles home though?

    This photo indicates the cab is '60, unless very early 6E's had the three pressed areas above the window. Good luck.

    Reviving this almost a year from the day.
    I have since purchased a full gasket set for the engine in hopes of getting it going. Just no time...worse yet I'm about to lose the storage location I have it in...looking for any reasonable offer to take it off my hands. If anyone knows of anyone that is interested please let me know...my cell is 812-447-5003...text is preferred...phone calls are OK too but please leave a voicemail...truck is located just outside of Columbus, IN 47203.

    That is correct, either would work. The Mfg. Wagner Brake, called it a No-Roll Valve and Studebaker named it a Hill Holder for their use of it on their Vehicles. A much better Advertising feature Name.

    since you've volunteered pics...take some close ups of the rear of fenders and of the floors near the hinge posts....that will help determine value

    Thanks for the responses, I agree making the engine run would be a big benefit but unlikely I can take it that far, if I did I would want to keep it! I do know it turns over since I routinely crank it over and keep the bottom end sprayed down and oil the cylinders.

    It does have the 3 speed OD T-89 with the NoRol. I have two of them. Getting some picture of it today, I'll post them asap!

    I bought a 61 Champ with a good body, presentable paint and interior, and a tired 289 engine. It was a 6E7-112 with P2 box. I paid $5000. I have since replaced the tired engine and put in an OD transmission. Non running with parts in the box are the hardest projects to sell. My guess would be $1500ish. Pictures or more details might bring the value up a bit.

    Hope I did not offend, because you probably have way more in it than that.

    I bought my '61 Champ truck about a year and a half ago. It too has the 259 V8 with 3-speed and O/D. The engine had been rebuilt and was not the original to the truck. It has a relatively new paint job and most of the interior had been redone. I have included a photo. I purchased it for $6,500 which was a very reasonable price. Keep in mind it was turn-key and I drove it away. Whether you can use this as a benchmark for yours I'm not sure since yours needs some reassembly. But it might be a place to start.

    This probably could be a nice Truck when finished, but basket cases always sell very low due to all the effort figuring out where the builder was with all the parts and work and then all the effort required to finish.
    Without seeing the pieces new or used original? and the Truck, it is not likely to be bid on eBay to over $2000.00 if that.

    It would help a whole lot if you can make the engine run to prove it has not rusted up in storage over the years.

    It also could help if you would state if it is the desirable, Stock 3 Speed Overdrive T-89 Transmission or which.

    1961 Champ Pick-up Value

    Hi All,

    I own a 1961 6E7 Champ pick-up. I have had it for many many years with the hopes of getting it back on the road. Unfortunately, I just don't have the time or room to work on it now. I'm wondering what people think would be a fair price for it?

    Some information on it:

    Body (flare side), frame, cab, all in very good shape, painted 10 years ago still looks good. I'd basically say no rust on it, if you looked really close you could find some imperfections I'm sure.
    Have a rebuilt, although never started, 259 V8 and transmission in the truck now and another one in pieces on the floor.
    Have many of the original parts in boxes, mostly complete truck if someone could put it back together.
    The interior is mostly stripped out of it, original bench seat is there with steering wheel and column, dash structure in place. Nothing else, all the parts are in a box.

    Located in Central Indiana
