Harry Lundgren returned home from war in 1946. Taking a job in Ventura with Economy Plumbing Supplies, he drove this Studebaker truck on deliveries, eventually becoming a partner in the company. The truck was sold to a farmer, and after some years was put out to pasture in a field. Harry found the truck, bought it back and restored it to its current condition.

Equipped with helper springs for extra capacity, it has period Signal-Stat directional signals and an AM radio. Restored to commercial truck standards, it is ready to work or for show
