Studebaker Zip-Van Mail Truck

Studebaker Zip-Van mail truck 

I found my beloved Studebaker Zip-Van mail truck in an auction advertised in Farm Collector in April 2008. I flew from Connecticut to Oregon. I was the high bidder and brought it home from Oregon, a trip of 3,200 miles.

I am a retired mail carrier. I retired in 2004 after 42 years. I searched for four years and found my dream truck in your magazine. Just had to write and say thank you!
