1957 Studebaker Champion Saved From the Crusher! Amazing Edsel Prototype Found!
Hi! Today we're off to bring back a 1957 Studebaker Champion 4-door sedan
that was going to be scrapped if no one gave it a home. It's a pretty
complete car, and I was happy to add it to the Cold War Motors collection.
Join us as we load up the old Stude and have a look at some other rare
cars, including an amazing pre-production Edsel serial # 100016!
Studebaker Woody Fastback Custom at SEMA from Eastwood
Check out this interview from SEMA 2013 in Las Vegas. The guys from
Eastwood get an up close look at the amazing '51 Stude Woody that was built
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.
Eastwood has everything you need to do the job right when you're restoring
your car, truck or motorcycle - welders, plasma cutters, powder coating
supplies, abrasive blasters and media, hand tools, rust solutions, paint

1962 Studebaker Lark V8 (original) - in detail
At the time the Lark was conceived, Studebaker-Packard Corporation was
under a management contract with Curtiss-Wright Aircraft Company.
Studebaker-Packard had been losing money for years when company president
Harold Churchill came up with the idea of abandoning the full-size car
market in favor of building a new compact car that he hoped would save the
The Lark was ingeniously designed around the core bodyshell of the
full-sized 1953-1958 Studebakers. By reducing the front and rear overhangs
and shortening the wheelbase, the car could still seat six people
comfortably and hold a surprising amount of luggage. It was hoped that the
vehicle would save America's oldest vehicle manufacturer when it was
launched in the fall of 1958 as a 1959 model, much like the 1939 Studebaker
Champion had saved the company in the years prior to World War II. In fact,
it was the Champion which Churchill specifically took as his inspiration
for the Lark.
With its simple grille, minimal and tasteful use of chrome and clean lines,
the Lark "flew" in the face of most of the established "longer, lower and
wider" styling norms fostered by Detroit's "Big Three" automakers (General
Motors, Ford, and Chrysler). Studebaker's 1957-58 Scotsman had proved the
existence of a demand for a less-flashy automobile, and while the Lark was
not nearly so undecorated as the Scotsman, it was unmistakably purer of
line than anything Detroit would offer for 1959.
1960 Studebaker Lark Convertible Red SumtFG021613
Lark had the drop on the Falcon, Valiant and Corvair in that it hit the
market as a 1959 model, one year earlier than the offerings from the "big
3"! In addition, Lark offered a stationwagon and convertible version
besides the sedan! Larks continued through 1963, then underwent a name
change and finally were out of production during the 1966 model year. It's
really a shame..they offered a 6 and V8 and were competitive...too bad it
didn't last, the company that had started by making Conestoga wagons in the
