  • Carl E. Chadwick

    It is with great sadness that the Allegheny Region Chapter, SDC reports the death of Carl Chadwick of Washington, Pennsylvania on March 5, 2010. We will greatly miss him.

    Carl was one of the original Studebaker Truck Farmers, and the cover of the November 1997 Turning Wheels shows his 1964 8E40 96" BBC Transtar flatbed truck with a load of truck farmers on it in South Bend. (Carl is standing on the passenger side of the truck without a hat just behind the roof-mounted horn.)

    He had other Studebaker cars and trucks including a 1926 Duplex which was on loan to the SDC Museum for a number of years (not currently.)

    His obituary published in the Washington Observer-Reporter follows.
