    I think Rich already answered this. 1955-64.

    Detroit Gear 3 Band Studebaker Automatic Drive Transmissions were in '56 Trucks and maybe a few '55's, but what you want is a Short Tail '56 or '57 Car Trans. or a '57 to '64 Stude. Truck Borg Warner 3 speed Flight-O-Matic Trans. but the latter are VERY rare.

    Ron, if you don't HAVE a Truck yet, could you make it easy and just buy a Stude. Car with Automatic? There are hundreds of those around.
    One of my favorite studes is a 52 commander 4 door sedan. Did they make a starlite in a 4 door?

    Could an automatic from a 6 cylinder car be made to work in a truck? Or would that open up a can of worms with drive shaft lengths and mounts?

    FWIW, the Borg-Warner 3-speed automatic was an option for Studebaker pickups. Few were so equipped, but they do exist. All I've personally seen were V8s. Who's seen a Champion or Commander engined pickup with the automatic transmission?

    At this time I do not have the pickup. I was curious about this dilemma so that I can purchase the correct pickup for my needs. Didn't want to invest in a truck I couldn't do anything with. Thank you for the much needed info.

    Welcome, Ron,

    The experts here will need more info. All Stude engines are older style, just some older than others. Provide the year and model and transmission your truck has at present. The Champion, Commander and V8 engines all present different and unique challenges to fitting an automatic, but all have successfully been done.
