Brocky, I'll have to ask my mate about that, he's the main Aussie Studebaker parts dealer. He's always coming up with stuff I didn't know about Studes! (although we got no trucks here after the 2R series, excepting Champ pickups)

Jarrod.

Edit: like this, Brocky?:

Hereza stretch V:
By Whattoff Motor Company


Whattoff's own make Toter 8 made from the short International Sightliner Cab
Note the different length driveshafts.




These jobs were own make Whattoffs, and used Studebaker, International, or Detroit engines with the International Sightliner cab. That cab, once seen never forgotten, had a remarkable 48" overall length bumper to back of cab, and the operator has the feeling that he is driving a window. In a very real sense, the driver is the first thing to get hit in one of these cabs, and they were not a commercial success for International. But, Boy! Were they short. And about this time things began to happen that changed the nature of the Trailer Toter business.

Those short BBC GMC's were called cracker boxes in the states I think they resembled a a packet of crackers in width
Old trucks will make you poor but not unhappy
