    I checked all of your '60 Champ Registry photos looking for a cab Roof that actually SHOWS the THREE indentations and because of the shadow of the canted overhang, lighting and lack of being zoomed in tight none really SHOW those indentations.
    I also do not see them in the '60 & '61 of yours here either.

    This is the best Pic I found, still poor.

    StudeRich - I thought you might want to comment on the rear roof indentations on 14384. First 6E7 was 13801. Is this another case of using the press until it wears out and not making another...



    Just checked and this seems to be true on the earliest 6E5 in the registry as well - First E5 was 129601 - this truck is 129928...

    Looks like a Major IMPROVEMENT to me.

    But the "Champ" Nameplate belongs level with the Moulding.


    Geeze, will the WRONG Heater hookups NEVER End?
    These are getting to be more common than wrong or missing Battery Hold Downs!

    Yep - you are correct - truck below is correct for '61. 5E, 7E, 8E and 1959/60 Larks essentially had the chrome in the same place - and there are a lot more of those fenders around than '61s...

    It WAS a 6 Cyl. but at least on a Stude. Truck unlike the Cars there is no Brake, Suspension, Differential etc. difference from a V8.

    That could be a fun Streetrod for those that are into that. I think it looks good except the Interior.

    I have to wonder what that silver material is covering the Rear Window Weatherstrip? Looks pretty good.

    True - it would probably be a matter of deciding whether you would want to put a something in the bed or run the AC - both at the same time might be impossible...

    You can add a Fram F3 or F4 Canister Type Oil Filter to the Oil Filler Pipe, they take a C3 or C4 Element.
    OR, add the Newer type Studebaker Base and Bracket that uses the spin-on PB-50 Fram or replacement Brand throwaway Filter.

    There are HUNDREDS of Posts here about Oil, some use the Valvoline Silver bottle Racing Oil with the proper amounts of ZDDP for all flat tappet Engines.

    Some use an additive like Redline "Break-in additive" or ZDDPlus to their regular Good Brand of 10/30 or Heavier Oil, depending on Season and Climate as always.

    Always avoid the "New Car" multi-weights that contain 0, or 5 Wt.
