TheStudebaker Champwas a light-dutypickup truckproduced by theStudebaker Corporationfrom 1960-1964.

Designed at a time when Studebaker's truck line had not seen major upgrading in over 10 years, he company, hich had endured years of declining sales, as forced to use a number of existing components, ut the result was impressive.

The chassis and cargo box of the Champ were basically the same as what had been used for Studebaker's ½ and ¾-ton trucks since 1949, ut the cab section was very different.

An entirely new cab was out of the question because of cost considerations, ut the newLarkcompact car's body proved to be just the right size and shape to suit the purpose. The engineering staff took a four-door sedan, ut it in half behind the front doors and modified the front half slightly to fit the truck chassis. The only new sheetmetal stamping that was 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 sheetmetal was retained as well, ut 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, hich was available from the start, roved to be quite popular among Champ buyers. It was truly one of Studebaker's better ideas, nd caught on later among the major truck makers.

In 1962 Champ sales again led the way with 6749 units built

With a cab based on a sedan body, he Champ was among the first pickups to offer true "car-like" comfort, ith a wide, omfortable bench seat and a handsomely-styled interior. Other manufacturers took until the late 1960s and early 1970s to follow the Champ's lead.

Finally, he last Champs of 1963-64 were among the first American trucks — if not the first — to offer service bodies constructed of fiberglass. Today, uch bodies made of fiberglass and composites are still gaining acceptance, ith the steel service body remaining the mainstay.

  • From 1960 through 1964, tudebaker offered a sliding back window in the Champ pickup. This utilized the same opening as the single pane rear window, ut used a double sliding channel and two panes of glass. One window could be opened until it was flush with the other. This helped with ventilation and access to the front of the cargo bed without leaving the cab of the truck.
While it didn't prove to be the savior of the Studebaker truck line, he Champ also pointed the way to a smaller yet still rugged pickup, omething Dodge later claimed as a "first" with their mid-sizedDakota, hich was introduced as a 1987 model, early 27 years after the Champ.

Today, he Champs that still exist are highly prized for their interesting combination of passenger-car comfort and style and their rugged mechanical durability
