    There is a brief discussion of the various 1936-40 Stude cab-forward models in chapter 4 of the Stude truck history.

    Take a look at the "cab over pickup" that could have been.

It really worked quite well and it's always in the back of my mind as an "when I hit the lottery" project. I tried taking photos, but the glass kept reflecting the flash.

    Jack, click on the link I provided. I think I saw something along the lines of what you are describing in among all the photos.

    I don't think they were the very first, but they did have a good share of the COE market back then: http://forum.studebakerdriversclub.c...ighlight=mogul

    And if you don't like the pre-war COE's, you can always build your own later model: http://forum.studebakerdriversclub.c...-JRoberts-COEs

    Any COE factory Studebaker truck would be pre WWII. As a result, the technology is approaching 80 years old. If you will be hauling you would be wise to consider system upgrades.

    1st and third images, [along with any other image of that truck]
    Is a custom build, not factory.
    There are a number of anomolies on the page including non-Studebaker, non-truck etc. The examples of correct Studebaker COEs are plentiful enough. Some really neat ones too.
