I found this 54 Studebaker in a driveway in Martinez CA. in 1999. This is the same car shown later in "My dad's old Studebaker", which, by the way, isn't really his dad's old car. His dad's car went to a close friend of mine.
Bought this truck last year,I now have the new steering box and coolant
hoses installed and have fabricated alternator brackets and done eletrical
The truck had an axillary transmission at one time which is gone now as
well as the T-case so I built a 90 inch drive shaft connecting the five
speed to the mid-differential.
I believe that the engine may be the Hercules JXLD - 339 cubes instead of
the oridginal WW II Hercules JXD - 320 cubes.
The truck has had massive rear axles installed and was converted to 10 hole
This truck's frame rails were also fish plated to haul a huge refer box (I
would guess, with "Lupoi Produce" on the doors) - someone put a LOT of work
into this unit at one time, it was last licensed in 1959.

1956 Studebaker Golden Hawk Jet Streak Road Test
Take a test drive with me in a 1956 Studebaker Golden Hawk with the Jet
Streak engine option that was contemplated, but never offered by the
I was reluctant to make this because at the time I was riding on 22 year
old radial tires that made a severe thump the faster I went. A month later I replaced the
tires. When I took off the front passenger side tire, I noticed a split of
about 18", right down the tread.

Barn Find 1957 Studebaker Silver Hawk
This is the first real look at the old Studebaker from the pole barn on the
farm where it has been parked for the last six years. It was originally
from Texas and seems to be in pretty good shape. However, it looks like it
still needs a ton of work.
This is another episode in the '57 Studebaker Silver Hawk Restoration
Project. Here is a link to the playlist of all my videos in this series:

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.
Redneck Restoration's "This Old Truck" 1957 GMC
For the entire "Project Whitey" playlist, go here:
A 1957 GMC big widow Napco truck project that became a reason to have some
"57 GMC Runs Again" is the engine donor for this truck. We've decided to
video document the process of turning the engine-less "Mighty Whitey" into
a road worthy marvel, updating things for comfort and safety, and all the
while keeping a tight budget. The end result is supposed to be a reliable
cruiser with substantial off-road capabilities, and something that we
needn't worry about getting a scratch on. Keep checking back as we add
episodes building both "Mighty Whitey" and showing other Redneck
Restorations on "This Old Truck".
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
