    The photo appears to be taken at John S. Butzer and Brother Studebaker on S. State St. in Ephrata Pa. (not many miles from Denver) most likely the selling dealer. As I stated here before I remember visiting that place in the 60's when I was a youngin.
    My guess is the body was made by Boyertown Body Works in Boyertown Pa, roughly an hour east of Ephrata/Denver. They were famous for this type of bodies.

    Looks like "UNITED STATES TIRE" and "ARE GOOD".
    I don't think Swab was building bread bodies but, only Mike Margerum could verify. Also, Denver, PA is in Lancaster County and Swab was (is) in Elizabethville, Dauphin County. Still, close enough to be probable.
    It's a shame Mike finds computers and the internet to be the work of the devil.

    I have the original 8 X 10 glossy. It was taken in 1941 and definitely in PA. Note right hand drive. Car in background is a '34. Could have been done by one of dozens of body companies.

    Swab Wagon Works in Pennsylvania comes to mind. They would have made something like this and were building custom bodies and selling Studeakers at that time.

    Does appear to be, doesn't it, Dick?

    Leads me to believe it was probably taken at the dealership before initial delivery.
    Yes...Look at the partial view of the sign behind the truck. Some kind of Studebaker sign. Also, look at the cars in the adjacent parking lot seen at the front of the truck. Is that a 1933 Studebaker grille? As to the three story building in the background. There seems to be a faint vertical lettering on the two brick columns to the left. I can't make them out. I wonder if the actual dealer building is to the left, out of the picture? That large building looks awfully big for a dealer. Great picture.

    Interesting that it uses the stock fenders as well as the grille, bumper, and headlights.

    I was reading the AACA forums and happened on this pic- I've never seen a delivery like this before. Can anyone shed any light on where the pic is taken? Sign to the left of the truck say something about Studebaker- and there's a 34-35 Studebaker in the parking lot behind the truck. Very cool pic.
