For this edition of Truck Thursday I want to take you back in time to 1955. The U.S. is in the middle of the post-war economic boom, and auto manufacturers were hard at work churning out every kind of car and truck you can imagine. Studebaker was no exception and offered a full line of light-duty pickup trucks for every kind of buyer. The 1/2-ton model was designated the E7 for 1955, and although it had a new name, it was mostly a carryover of the 3R, which itself was based on the 2R before it. Studebaker were not known for spending a lot of money on the truck division.
