Description: Produced from 1960 to 1964, the Studebaker Champ was the first major redesign of Studebaker's truck line in more than ten years. Although the cargo bed and chassis were carryovers from previous models, the Champ cab was an all new design based off the Lark which has only been introduced the year before and as a result, the new Studebaker Champ was the first American truck to offer the ruggedness of a pickup with the comfort of a car. This 1964 Studebaker Champ is powered by a two-barrel 289ci V8 engine mated to a column-shifted three-speed manual transmission with overdrive. Featured with a light green exterior with a green interior, the Champ shows well both inside and out and appears mostly original, with all the original gauges present in the dash, along with the original AM radio still residing in the dash. As a standard cab model, this Champ features manual steering and brakes and a one piece rear window as opposed to the sliding rear window found on the deluxe models. As one of the last Champs built before Studebaker ceased production in late 1963 with the closing of their South Bend, Indiana plant, this Champ is one of only 2,509 built that year, with only 1,857 sold in the U.S. and one of a handful of carryover Studebakers sold in 1964 after the factory closed. Today, as a result of their innovative design and low production numbers, Studebaker Champs have become highly collectible as a classic American truck gone before its time.
