    Very interesting indeed. Consider writing a story for Turning Wheels. I would love to read more about it and see more pictures. That truck would make a great Turning Wheels cover picture. Please consider this.

    Is that three trucks together? That is impressive if it is.

    Do you have any photos of the serial plate or the body plate - would be curious to see what those plates would show.

    I think that your comments need correction/clarification. Those Packard trucks were all made in the USA, but none were sold new here.

    Some have thought that only one prototype Packard pickup was built. This picture disproves that.

    Thanks a lot for the picture.

    Don't apologize for your English, it's better than some I've heard and read here in the States!
    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

    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.

    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.

    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.
