    As StudeRich mentioned, those '63-'64 Champ backing plates bolt directly onto earlier trucks. These also include the 1941-48 M5 1/2-ton pickups, 1939 Coupe Express trucks, as well as 1939-41 Commander and President cars. With Studebaker International now offering reproduction brake drums to fit, brakes can be improved substantially on the cars and trucks while still keeping drum-type brakes. Now we just need to get Ed Reynolds to have some of these backing plates stamped out as reproductions, too. I think that '64-'64 Champ backing plates are the same basic stamping as the Lark-type 11" brakes, just with a different mounting bolt pattern and center hole. Can anyone check that?

    Joe Zeiger, you seem to have a set of each, so how do they look?
