          Thanks for posting that. I've always been interested in those unique pickup boxes made for the South American market.

            Chris, It truly is a shame. personally I like the rear cargo beds that used in my country. And I do not understand why they did not use in USA these trucks that among other virtues have independent front suspension, and I could compete with "El Camino" of Chevrolet and "Ranchero" Ford.

              Craig, The Champs, came to Argentina without the rear box, and that were manufactured here, and although many think it is the case of Ford 1962, only bears a resemblance, its size is different and so is the entrance to the fuel tank. Thank you.

                With your comment about independent front suspension, the passenger car grille and passenger car bumper fit to the body as opposed to how the U.S. truck bumpers don't fit the body, I wonder if a truck body was put on a passenger car frame or a passenger car made into a ute like Australians create.

                  Doug ..., these trucks 7E9, were armed on heavy-duty chassis Lark (for taxi). That is why the bumpers, front grille, are the same as the Lark. It also has the gas tank on the back, as the cars and carry the load input is at the rear side of the rear box. The 7E9 only were exported, none circle the streets of USA.

                    Very nice truck! and thank you for sharing your photographs. Very interesting, have you ever seen any of those Packard pick up trucks manufactured for the South American market?

                      We would like to see more detailed photographs. We are very interested in these trucks and have very little info on them. Also would like to see other Studebakers in Argentina.

                        Hello, 57 Pack ... I have not seen one of the Packard trucks, but I have a picture of one with an inscription on the door that shows that came to Argentina. I was able to write with a member of the family that had bought, but did not know much about her. I'll get the photo to be included. Thank you very much for your interest.

                              Hello, 57 Pack ... I found the photo that you had commented. It is a STUDEPACKARD. The guy who sent me the photo is Miguel Cestona and also who is in the photo, the truck was his family who had a DODGE agency. And Studepackard was used for technical service. At the door the name of the family business is, and in the center the word "DODGE". "Approved services".
                              I have another picture of a newspaper article, which explains that the name change. When I find it I will post it. regards
