The last South Bend built Studebaker made, seen by Klockau in July 2015. The funny thing is that as a child I found the Studebakers still being driven to be hopelessly outdated and therefore unexciting. Indeed, I’ve wondered why Studebaker didn’t grab Kaiser-Willys if its board was so intent upon diversifying out of passenger-car production. It’s like deciding Wanker LTD would be a good corporate name. I offered to come around and see it and offer any advice on how to sell The Daytona was a really cool car. I told him to attempt to start the car to see if the engine Studebaker may not have had much time left, but they still had quite a good-looking car as well as attractive, colorful interiors. And the optional tachometer was placed right there on the dash with the other gauges, unlike the difficult-to-read, center-console-mounted tachs in some GM and Ford products. It took awhile to get some of the bugs out of the car and looking over the car and taking inventory I was asked if I would be interested

The fact that carpet and frozen food guys knew nothing about the electronics business meant nothing to the money men who got the power. You could even get disc brakes, but you’d have to hurry, as only South Bend-built Studebakers got the R-spec equipment. says that’s a former family car of Gordon The final Indiana car built was a two-door Daytona V8 hardtop. Bringing in the Isuzu Belade below the Lark range to give dealers more volume. I am not that big on buy american first as my Nissan will attest but the landscape sure is different from when I was a kid. My brother is Bark Maruth, Or something like that anyway.

Damn you, Tom – now I am going to spend all day lusting over this beautiful blue Cruiser. of 2007 I thought that it was ready for the big trip down to South Bend for the

There were many highlights, 53 coupes, 57 supercharged Golden Hawk, 63 R-2 Lark and obviously the Avanti, but more WTF times. This is an ALL original untouched vehicle purchased new by them and has been in our family since new. No matter, still handsome cars, even today, The Wagonaire is truly an amazing car in many respects. When I recounted this tale to our son who got his masters at the U of Portland (as did his wife), he laughed out loud. I already had a 1963 GT Hawk that was taking up time and money but I asked to see the All Canadian Studes would have a fixed metal roof-unless you sprung for a Wagonaire with the retractable roof! According to my Standard Catalog of American Cars 1946-75, only 647 Daytona convertibles were built between the introduction of the 1964 models and the closure of South Bend on December 20, 1963. In addition to more modern, squared-off sheet metal, there was power if you wanted it. Plus, the carpeting was recently replaced with correct colors and materials to keep this looking vintage but feeling fresh. Love these quirky old Studes…There is a guy here in Tigard that has a collection of them, and I see them on the road quite often. Packard and Studebaker brought in some new talent from the outside towards the end, but the writing was already on the wall and there were insufficient cash or management talent to really change the direction of the firms.

The “golf” part was unmemorable, but I was really distracted by an abandoned 1966 Studebaker on the periphery of the golf course. Being in the Quad Cities, I never would have known otherwise. Studebaker, wrong place and wrong time. Poor, benighted Canadian businessman he was…didn’t see the big picture. Unfortunately, those same guys started making the decisions that led to the last South Bend Studebaker cars leaving the soon-to-be-shuttered factory in December 1963, only a few short months into the 1964 model year. As a kid up there, I remember my grand dad saving his drain oil and spraying it on the bottom of what ever car he had. They’re all durable consumer goods, sheet metal boxes with mechanical components inside.

In 1948, when George Mason first proposed a merger (starting with Nash/Packard), all four independents were flush with wartime cash and bursting with engineering talent (47 Studebaker, 48 Hudson, 49 Nash, Packard’s Ultramatic, 50 Rambler, etc.) The Corporation was making huge profits in the mid sixties, the Board just would no longer invest in the auto division, a slow withering death, just like Packard. I know that the heater unit on my 1947 Studebaker Truck was the same unit used on the IH Light Duty Truck of that same era. the closure of South Bend on December 20, 1963. the Studebaker National Museum in South Bend. And no convertibles! Brooks Stevens, the renowned Milwaukee-based industrial designer, was a godsend to small companies like Studebaker. The tan cloth on the seats have a great button-top presentation as part of the premium interior. ALK 5001   35 amps. The Owners Studebaker’s Wagonaire would have been outstanding on this platform.
