This truck rolls on Cragar SS five-spoke wheels with three-spoke center caps. which are surrounded by Falken radials. size 235/45ZR17 in front and 275/40ZR17 in back. Tires have plenty of tread and the Cragars look great.

In addition. the factory AM radio is still in the dash. This vehicle is an air-conditioning and heater delete model.
The Studebaker Champ was produced from 1960-1964. Designed at a time when Studebaker's truck line had not seen major upgrading in more than 10 years. the company. which had endured years of declining sales. was forced to use a number of existing components.
The Champ's chassis and cargo box were the same as what had been used for Studebaker's ½ and ¾-ton trucks since 1949 but the cab section was very different. An entirely new cab was out of the question because of cost considerations but the new Lark compact car body proved just the right size and shape to suit the purpose.
The engineering staff took a four-door sedan. cut it in half behind the front doors and modified the front half slightly to fit the truck chassis. The only new sheetmetal stamping required was the back wall of the new cab. Minor modifications for mounting of the cab to the 1949-vintage truck frame were also made.
The Lark's front end was retained as well but funds were allocated to give the Champ a new horizontal-bar grille that delivered a tougher look.
The Champ is seldom given credit for introducing a feature that is nearly universal among today's pickup trucks: the sliding rear window. which was available from the start. proved to be quite popular among Champ buyers. It was truly one of Studebaker's better ideas and caught on later among the major truck makers.
With a cab based on a sedan body. the Champ was among the first pickups to offer true "car-like" comfort. with a wide. comfortable bench seat and a handsomely styled interior. Other manufacturers took until the late 1960s and early 1970s to follow the Champ's lead.
While it didn't prove to be the savior of the Studebaker truck line. the Champ also pointed the way to a smaller yet still rugged pickup. something Dodge later claimed as a "first" with their mid-sized Dakota. which was introduced as a 1987 model. nearly 27 years after the Champ.
