Hudson Terraplane is it. This is a 1938 Hudson Terraplane coupe with what I would expect is a very rare factory option: a pickup box with an embossed "Hudson Terraplane" tailgate. I have seen these pickup boxes on other coupes in the late 1930's and early 1940's. I imagine some of these installations are aftermarket. Are these coupe-pickups the ancestors of the Ford Ranchero and Chevrolet El Camino ? Davwingman had this first. Thanks to Don MacKenzie for the photos.

HS, Not Really?? Ford designed the Aussie Ute about the same time era, Mid 30's, But the Aussie ones had a flat backed cab and a full sized Pick up type box most often separate behind it where the American ones just took off the trunk lid and slid the small box in. Some of the post war Utes were built like a Ranchero / El Camino, I think the variations depended on how much they were designed to haul???

The Ancestor of the Ranchero / El Camino Car/pickup was the Hudson Terraplane Pickup made in 1934 or 1935.

Hudson continued to make variants on that theme until 1947.

Studebaker made a “Coupe Express” before WW II

None of these are “UTES” as found in Australia.

37-39 Studebaker Coupe Expresses were a true pick-up using the same cab as their larger trucks along with a separate box. Different from other common pick-up manufacturers, they used car front sheet metal (along with a car frame) and rated it at 1/4 ton. (In these years they didn't market a 1/2, 3/4, or 1 ton version) In 1940 they switched to using a heavier frame and front sheet metal matching their larger trucks, did away with the 1/4 ton designation, and marketed 1/2, 3/4, and 1 ton versions
