Studebaker called this model truck a C-cab.

Hehehehe!
Oh for gosh sakes! I finally see it! I've had this tab up all afternoon...
The "Coffey Brothers Sales & Service" on the door. You? Family heirloom?
I think Studebaker cabs were distinctive compared to the other makers.
Do the rain guards over the windows work good?

The Coffey Brothers are my three grandsons. I only had two when I began building the truck, but now have 3, my only son's sons. The phone number on the doors were made from their two birthdays, May 24 and April 12. I now plan to redo the phone numbers by adding an area code to incorporate the youngest's birth date. My son-in-law got the stencils for the lettering for me as a Christmas gift, after finding some schetchings where I had planned out the signage. He helped me apply the lettering over the original green paint. I have made some progress in the truck build since the pic was taken.

It sits on a 1987 Dodge Dakota chassis and now has a Chevrolet 4.3 V6 and automatic transmission. The factory metal bed floor has been replaced, by a previous owner, with cedar boards.

Those 4.3 babblers are pretty good engines.
Very cool.
