    cool trucks for sure...but newsflash...Stude CE's had interchangeable front and rear fenders! Really? Even just looking at a photo should tell the author otherwise...unless I'm clearly blind. That's the problem with the 'net...any yahoo can post anything and sound like an expert. cheers Junior

        Hopefully, someone with credible knowledge will chime in, but, I believe this could be "partially" correct. I think that some early "M" series trucks carried the "Coupe Express" moniker...although, I don't think they deserved it.

            Only thing wrong is Studebaker made 'commercial' vehicles right from the start of non-motorized production with electrics in 1902; not 1914 as per the text.

            Of course many of the horse-drawns are 'commercial'

              The "interchangeable fender thing might be a typo, meaning interchangeable with the Dictator! -Jim

                Maybe...but the front and rear are very different although somewhat similar in style.

                    They were made for 'Nash Dealer Use Only', and not for general sale to the public.

                      Like all other media outlets, Popular Mechanics is surely trying to appeal to younger readers -- so it's understandable that these would be considered to be "obscure" models. But I remember seeing all six of the US-built models back in the 1950s. Not sure any of us in North America got a chance to see the Tempo Matador or the Benz -- including them in the list is a bit of a stretch.

                        Clearly in context of the photo provided and the years provided...the 37-39 CE trucks did not have interchangeable front and rear fenders. Perhaps a photo of an 'M' series with the associated trivia fact would have been more appropriate? I think even more appropriate would have been the trivia fact that (some?) M series were considered CE Studebakers. I do stand corrected. Cheers, Junior

                          Only in advertising, and not so marked on the trucks themselves. And as I recall, only the 1941 models.
