    BLAZE YOUR OWN TRAIL, Interesting to note that GM came out with a similar version based on the Chevy BLAZER, in the early 1970’s. Neither one of these were big sellers. Never seem one in person, only in print.

    Sam .. are there still only 7 known in existence? I don’t know what the current count is.

    Any idea on how many were produced?

    Around the same time, a firm offered a camper to fit in the Studebaker Wagonaire wagon with the sliding roof panel.
    I think only one was built but media exposure was high and it received publicity way out of proportion to the number built.
    Is this the same they of thing?

    The fact an example was shown at dealers for a limited time makes me wonder it it wasn’t a well travelled demonstrator or even prototype.
