Studebaker US6 "Frozen In Time" (Engine Overhaul)
In the summer of 2009 this 1945 Studebaker US6 was brought back to life and
driven 75 miles back to civilization after being abandoned in the remote
Alaskan wilderness and "frozen in time" for two decades. Now in June 2013
the old war horse is getting some much needed TLC and a new lease on life.
This truck was built on May 23, 1945 -the day Himmler commits suicide.

by Hill's Rod & Custom in California. It features incredible wood work as
well as a 390 cid Ford Edsel V8 with a rare injection system that was
designed by aircraft engineers and featured on the cover of Hot Rod
magazine in 1959. This was one of the most popular cars at SEMA and we're
sure you'll be impressed after you watch the video.

1961 STUDEBAKER HAWK SPORTS COUPE " SOLD " Drager's International Classic Sales 206-533-9600
The Studebaker had style. 1961 was the last year for the fins. Look at the
front end. Note the separation between fenders and the hood. These cars
were low and sleek. Everywhere I drive this car people stop and ask
questions and give the thumbs up or wave. When is the last time you saw
one? This is one beautiful car. The Studebaker has only 59,000 miles. Check
out the original interior. Note the "Fasten Seat Belts" sign on the
dashboard. The man I bought the Studebaker from had the hood come up while
driving and it promped him to restore the outside. He spent about $15,000
with new paint and chrome. It's beautiful. I have a great book he put
together with all the bills. The engine is a 259 V-8. Automatic
transmission. The Studebaker has Twin Traction rear end or positraction.
Manual steering and brakes. The only thing I had to do to this car was
install a new water pump. I just got this in and I've only had a chance to
drive it about 100 miles. I really like the way it drives. The only change
I would make to this car would be to add radial tires. Old School Garage
has serviced and safety checked it for your driving pleasure. Cond. # 2-.

The 1963 Avanti was the last ditch effort of Sherwood Egbert (his real
name) to rescue the faltering Studebaker. Once again, the company turned
to its ace in the hole, stylist Raymond Loewy, to conceive a car that would
miraculously turn things around. He rented a house in Palm Springs and
there with three young designers and with missionary zeal embarked on
creating something new and revolutionary. The result -- the Avanti, got
attention but didn't save the company. Studebaker was gone three years
Robin Judd 1959 Studebaker - 6.01 second drag race
Robin Judd and his hard working crew achieved their personal best time at
the Perth Motorplex this afternoon when they ran a great 6.01 second
personal best ET over the ¼ mile reaching 240.00 mph (386 kmh). Judd's
popular 1959 Studebaker literally catapulted from one end of the racetrack
to the other on the pass, and it is a credit to him and his team for all of
their dedicated work, late nights, and hard efforts to achieve the result.
Judd has become a serious threat and competitor in the popular Australian
Top Doorslammer bracket for many years now, and has eliminated some of the
biggest players in the game with his Studebaker. The car is powered by a
511 cubic inch Keith Black engine and produces around 3500 horsepower, and today at the
Perth Motorplex, everything just came together for the team making the
"perfect run". The clutch settings were 100%, the fuel and ignition
tune-ups were perfect, and the correct suspension settings helped
everything to just come together to help the car to "squat", and perform to
its best pass ever.
Judd ran 1.028 seconds to the 60 ft timers, 2.67 to the 330 ft, 3.971 to
the 660 ft half-track at 190.85 mph (307 kmh), and 5.076 to the 1000 ft
mark, before finally stopping the quarter mile timers in 6.015 seconds.
Judd receives support from William Buck Chartered Accountants, Melville
Panel and Paint, Myaree Trimmers, Applied Automotives, Genie Exhausts, Automotive Sports Engineering,
Westnet, WA Diffs, Stripemaster, Australian Drag Racing Magazine and Crane
Cams. Judd would also like to thank his hard working crew and Crew Chief
Lee Brailsford, James and Stuart Rowland, Eric and Frank Gauderi, Andrew
Fowler, Les Davenport, his reverse gear, his family, the race-fans for
their continued support, and the Perth Motorplex.
Studebaker car commercials aired 1950
These were "local" commercials that aired during a 1950 episode of a
popular-yet-short-lived "local" Los Angeles television series. For some
reason, I can imagine King Kai driving a car like this.

Gear Vendors Overdrive and traction bars, Part 1, Studebaker Lark
Upgrading the Lark's tranmission and traction bars. Using a TH400 with the
Gear Vendors Under/Overdrive for a stronger driveline. It's going to be a
tight fit, the extra length and girth of the o/d will be hitting the
driveshaft tunnel. Hopefully, I can retain the X-pipe on the Exhaust. The Cal-Trac style bars should give a
much better hook-up and suspension compliance.
