‘Lil Champ: ’60 Studebaker Champ Pickup
The Studebaker Champ was the very first pickup to have a sliding rear window to enhance ventilation. An interesting factoid yet not enough to allocate a class to it at Pebble Beach. These Champs are probably the first car-like pickups. They were reasonably comfortable and had a range of options to choose from. Today’s find may be a very original, 69,900 mile V-8 in nice condition. It has a 3 on the tree which is typical of the period. The bed is original and appears to be in very good shape. It has been spared a Tuff-Cote treatment at least. We featured one of these early on in Mint history and it got a lot of positive response. If you missed out on that one, perhaps this is your lucky day. Click here for the listing.
