    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?

    Ed, You are so good at reading and re-reading your own post's, so why not read my first reply.
    It just said that the parts have a bottom value (scap metal price) and that I have no clue as to the top value.

    Don't have a clue where the top value is.
    But here's a pretty good starting point for where the bottom should start..

    I just pointed out what scrap metal prices are. (or how to ascertain how to find out what scrap metal prices are)
    That would be the bottom line on value of any metal.
    These are obviously worth more. How much?
    I have no idea, and said so in my reply.

    Very good point.......well said!

    That really depends on how the vehicle will be used,.....but I must say that as far as drum brake systems go, Studebaker's '54-'66 drum brakes were/are probably the 'best in the business'!!)

    The 8E5, & 7 Front Backing plates cannot be compared to the car type which are very plentiful.

    This Brake System is the one EVERY C & T Cab Truck SHOULD have. It uses the 11 Inch Car Front Shoes and Bendix style Star Wheel Adjusted Brakes that actually STOP the Truck in very short order!
    It would be helpful to have the Brake Hardware with them, the Drums are all the same as earlier type and should not be hard to find.

    Yes these do have a value to those that understand the systems used on these Trucks and own a '49 to '62 truck with eccentric adjusted Brakes.
    There are not many of these available, only being used for '63 Year Model and 5 Months of 1964 Production.
