        I'm going back through this and digging the survivorness of the A.J.'s Overhead Door truck.
        1963 Champ "Stu Bludebaker"- sometimes driver
        1957 Silver Hawk "Josie"- picking up the pieces after an unreliable body man let it rot for 11 years from an almost driver to a basket case
        1951 Land Cruiser "Bunnie Ketcher" only 47M miles!
        1951 Commander Starlight "Dale"- basket case
        1947 Champion "Sally"- basket case
        1941 Commander Land Cruiser "Ursula"- basket case

          Also digging the survivorness of Studey's Speed shop. I'm really digging the orange and tusk ivory of #58 because it reminds me of Allis-Chalmers orange and creme. Grandpa Skow had the AC dealership in Moorhead, Iowa.

            I know a local Club Member near Me, has a 64 Champ 3/4 ton with Factory AC and of course Tinted Glass.

            Of course it was available, it's just that Dealers almost never ordered it after 1958 on Cars or Trucks, here on the West Coast anyway.

              8E12-6825 - 122 WB - T6 cab - Photo on inside cover of Turning Wheels, Vol 26, No 12, January 1994.

              Write up on the photograph: "Not everyday do we receive an current photo of original owner standing with their Studebaker. Our inside front cover features just such a combination. Shown are members Howard and Cleo Taylor with their 1964 V8 3/4 ton Champ pickup (8E12-122) that they purchased new from Grisham Motors in Springfield, Missouri, on January 30, 1964. The Champ, serial number E12-6825, features a Deluxe cab and 4 speed transmission. Howard used the Champ in his welding service from 1964 to 1976. Besides being used as a work truck, it also hauled the Taylor's cab-over camper, as well as their boat. Their son, Dusty, used for a few months after Howard retired it and then it was put in storage with 240,000 miles until 1991 when restoration was begun."

                  I thought that Champs didn't have chrome bumpers?

                    Nope - no factory produced Champs came with chrome front (or rear) bumpers. There might have been a dealer or two who might have had them chromed to dress them up, and clearly a lot of people who have restored these trucks have had them chromed...

                            I just became to proud owner of this 1964 Champ, first thing up is to redo all the brakes, new head gaskets and change all filters and fluids. Much more to come after that as well. I already have a production order on order from the Studebaker museum, I’ll update with all the info when that comes in. This is my first Studebaker and I’m really excited! My father in law has a 61 Lark Convertible that he’s working on at the moment as well.

                              Sounds great cabaum. Are you speaking about the truck in part #72 or another one unseen?
