Studebaker US6 "Frozen In Time" (Engine Overhaul)
In the summer of 2009 this 1945 Studebaker US6 with its Hercules JXD engine
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.

SCCNSW member Scott had some issues with his Champion's engine, and needed
to give it some attention. While he was at it, he dressed it up a bit, and

Hi! Cold War Motors just picked up this sweet old Stude so it wouldn't get
melted down and made into a Prius or something. Join us for part 2 and
we'll do a walk-around of this complete, original, untouched car. I don't
know when it was driven last... any guesses?
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!
1957 Studebaker Champion Four Door Sedan GrayWht ZHAuction022213
Studebaker had done some major facelifting to try to keep pace with the
quickening speed of automotive styling! Yet if you look below the surface,
much of the earlier 50's remains. Notice the strange drum speedometer with
a magnifier in front! Drum speedometers had a long history with cars, but
the only other around this time was in the ill fated 1958 Edsel! Soon U.S.
production would be stopped, and Larks would be the only offering.
1940 Studebaker Champion Introduction
The Studebaker Champion is an automobile which was produced by the
Studebaker Corporation of South Bend, Indiana from the beginning of the
1939 model year until 1958.
The success of the Champion in 1939 was imperative to Studebaker's survival
following weak sales during the 1938 model year. Unlike most other cars,
the Champion was designed from a "clean sheet", and had no restrictions
caused by necessarily utilizing older parts or requiring the subsequent use
of its components in heavier vehicles. Market research guided the selection
of features, but a key principle adhered to was the engineering watchword
"weight is the enemy." For its size, it was one of the lightest cars of its
era. Its compact straight-6 engine outlasted the model itself and was
produced to the end of the 1964 model year, with a change to an OHV design
The Champion was one of Studebaker's best-selling models because of its low
price (US$660 for the two-door business coupe in 1939), durable engine, and
styling. The car's ponton styling was authored by industrial designer
Raymond Loewy who had been under contract with Studebaker for the design of
their automobiles. Champions won Mobilgas economy runs by posting the
highest gas mileage tests. During World War II, Champions were coveted for
their high mileage at a time when gas was rationed in the United States.
From 1943-1945, the Champion engine was used as the powerplant for the
Studebaker M29 Weasel personnel and cargo carrier, which also used four
sets of the Champion's leaf springs arranged transversely for its bogie
The Champion was phased out in 1958 in preparation for the introduction of
the 1959 Studebaker Lark. Prior to this, Studebaker had been placed under
receivership, and the company was attempting to return to a profitable
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.

your car, truck or motorcycle - welders, plasma cutters, powder coating
