I have 1956 Studebaker Transtar pick up. Can you tell me about how many were made?

Studebaker production stats are very difficult to find AND VERIFY, especially trucks and EARLY models. The Studebaker clubs are probably going to be the best bet. Their are some local chapters depending upon where you live?

Unfortunately, production breakdowns are not available from Studebaker. However, production totals of all 2E models 1.5 ton to 2 ton equaled 20,218.

If you know the serial number span for your model that might help you get a rough estimate of how many of that model were built in 1956.

You could try contacting the MT. Shasta Orphan Classics Car Club in Redding, CA.
Their club president is pretty knowledgeable about Studebakers and if he doesn't know, I bet you he knows who does. Club Contact: (530)222-1948

According to the December 1987 article by Fred Fox (well known Studebaker historian) that was published in Turning Wheels (Studebaker Drivers Club monthly bulletin) the following numbers of 2E (1956 model year) trucks were produced:
1/2 ton (all engines) - 7097
3/4 ton (all engines) - 1198
1 ton (all engines) - 998

Of course there is no guarantee that all of these trucks were built with a pickup box - many other decks were available.
