  • Studebaker US6 prototypes

    Production of Studebaker US6 was begun in June, 1941. When prototypes of US6 were built?

    I suspect that the only possible source for the info you seek is the Studebaker National Museum. I don't know the extent of their records on prototype vehicles, but they probably have pictures, with dates of any prototype US6 trucks assembled. However, I'm pretty sure that the museum would charge $ for their research efforts.

      I only know that development of US6 began in March or April, 1941.

        All that I found includes; "Early in 1941 Studebaker assembled a number of pilot model military trucks for the U. S. War Department....By the end of 1941, Studebaker produced 4,724 army trucks ...By the end of the war, Studebaker had produced 197,678 military trucks of which over half were shipped via lend-lease to Russia to be used by the Red army."
