I also would like to do a Champ truck someday, but I hate both of the beds on the Champs, neither of them fit the cabs. One is the old round fender beds like what came on my truck and the other is a wrong sized boxy Dodge variation bed. Terrible.

I want to do a Champ but get an extra set of front fenders, and 4 door skins and build the bed Stude SHOULD have built. One that FITS the cab. Keep it to scale with the cab, body lines line up, wheel openings match, even if I raised or lowered the rear opening a bit like most vehicles have but a REAL bed...then it would be SLAMMED and kind of Nascar truck styling minus the graphic stickers...real simple and clean without any gadgety gimmicy stuff, clean and simple like Stude usually built. In a dream world it would have a SC 289 Avanti or Hawk motor in it, of coourse.

And thank you for know that Stude actually made their OWN 289 and it is NOT a ford POS motor like most people try to tell me...oh yeah they used ford 289s in them...NOOOOOOO

I'm sooo jealous, guy. Love the schwinn handle. And that dashboard is awesome.


I'm a man, and I can change, if I have to, I guess.

Thanks for the complements.
That Schwinn grip shifter is something I made out of a 2003 Yamaha YZ250 handle bar and a 5/16" rod coupling welded inside of it to thread onto the 3 on the tree shifter. I actually bought the single grip out of a small glass diplay case at my first Studebaker show long before my truck was on the road and got a wierd idea to use it for the missing shifter knob.

The truck is really fun and I almost hate driving it when I am in a hurry to be any where because someone always wants to tell a story of the first car, or grampas old truck or whatever Stude story they have...it is really fun and I like talking to people about it but sometimes I gotta get somewhere and I just do not have time.

I still have alot to do on the old beast, but it is a coll semi ratrod, semi farm truck, semi whatever.

I have never been a "name my vehicles guy" but when I first got it running a little neighbor girl said "hey your old truck looks like Oscar the Grouch" because she saw the green and then the rusty color above the windshield...we laughed and the name stuck. He is Oscar...and he has often been grouchy.

If you search google for "CAN-AM SPYDER RS SM5 GREEN $2580", you find a whole bunch of Craigslist entries from around the country. Most of them have been flagged for removal. Looks like some sort of scam.
