  • That's one GOOD reason to do that I guess, but no one will ever know if it is legit.

    Yes the Factory did mask off the area behind the Serial Number Plates on all Cars and Trucks to get a good bare surface for welding, I guess they did not have "Weld Through" Primer then.

      • 8E10-40068 - 122 WB - T4 cab - for sale on Hemming Motor News website, January 2019.

        Radio, westcoast mirrors, lighter, climitizer, rear bumper (note fresh air bezels are from 1960, not 1963 & "Studebaker" emblemed front fenders could mean front fenders are from a '59 Lark)

        Info from ad: Here we have a 1963 Studebaker Pick-up truck. Very solid body with nicely maintained older blue metallic repaint. The black vinyl interior is also in very good condition. Powered by a healthy inline 6 cylinder and backed by a 3 speed manual transmission on the column. Bed, floors, and frame are in good condition. Factory tube powered AM radio still works very well. Nicely driving and running example of a rare and cool pick-up.

              Information from ad: 1963 Studebaker Champ, been in the family since new. My grandfather's step-dad (Frank Konopinski) got this when he retired from a career at Studebaker, in 1962. I have all records since new, along with various spare parts, service manuals and parts catalogs. I have wanted to fix the truck since I inherited it from my grandfather 13 years ago, but haven't had the money or time to do so, and I no longer have the room to keep it. I would love to see it restored and enjoyed once more.
              The truck was last driven about 11 years ago. It needs LOTS of work. Body has several areas which are rusted through, and there is surface rust everywhere. Floorboards are rusted through. Interior is in decent shape.
              Clean title in my name, current registration, ready to be towed away.

                Info from ad: 1963 Studebaker Champ, 170 in-line 6, 3 speed manual w/OD. Runs, drives, stops. Head rebuilt for unleaded gas, new brakes, shocks, OD wiring and kickdown new and correct. Clutch/pressure plate/throw-out replaced, flywheel turned and new ring. All lights work. New U joints and center bearing. All glass good and working with new window channels. Lots has been done but truck is still basically somewhere between a project and a daily driver. Too many projects to finish it. Asking $3800.

                  Info from ad: We have for sale a 1963 Studebaker Champ Pickup. The truck has the original inline 6 cylinder and 3 speed manual transmission. It runs and drives and is currently registered. It's a great work truck and around town vehicle. It has a Holley electric fuel pump but its otherwise completely original. The truck was originally Green Mist as you can see under the hood and in other areas. The truck has some rust in the floor pans and is covered by sheet metal panels on the drivers and passenger side outer floors, we have never removed the carpet or the seats to see the extent. There is some minimal cancer showing through in the rocker panels. The bed is dented in in the drivers side tail light area which is pictured. The frame is free of rot. The truck was converted to floor shift at one point but it is now returned to column shift so there is a hole in the floor for the shifter. Included with the truck are NOS Studebaker door panels and seat covers to return the interior back to stock. As stated the truck is a nice driver, not show restored so she has her leaks, bruises and bumps. The interior shows well as is but the seat has a flew splits and the carpet is older. The truck was sold new in New Mexico, hence the lack of major rust. The original Studebaker production order is included and pictured. The truck has clean title.

                    Information from ad: Original 6 cyclinder, 3 on the tree.

                    Running and driving.

                    60,1210 miles.

                    Just had the gas tank drained and cleaned, a new carb with choke installed, inline fuel and filter hose.

                    Fine chrome trim.

                    There is some surface rust, drivers side mirror, surface rust on wheels, deep rust through metal at the bottom of the doors, bed has surface rust.

                    Paint blisters here and there, paint popping.

                    Emblems still in tact.

                    Sliding back glass.

                    No air condition, radio does not work.

                    It needs to be driven, along with a little loving care and time put into it.


                    • This one will soon be back in Indiana (although in the Southern part of the state near Louisville. Looked pretty good, price was fair so I went for it after talking to the seller. Plan to work on it and bring it to the Meet in Indianapolis in 2021. Will bring a 1961 Lark to 2020 meet; not sure this one will be ready. Anyway, happy to join the Champ part of the Club.
