NZV8TV Ep13 - 1950 customised Studebaker, Central Muscle Cars, Chevy Camaro - part 2
More at http://www.v8.co.nz/tv. Chances are its the most customised car you will ever see on our roads. While registered as a 1950 Studebaker, the reality is there are parts off Studebakers of many different ages that have been formed together to create the ultimate delivery. This is one feature car you wont want to miss. Plus, interviews with young racers Shanelle Dobson, Scotty Miller and Goof Sherwin, and we went out to Pukekohe with one of the best presented Central Muscle Cars; Glenn Alinghams big block Camaro. Unfortunately, it wasnt looking so good by the time it got back home.
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.

CHECK OUT THIS BULLET NOSED 1950 STUDEBAKER STARLIGHT COUPE
What you see here in this video is an extraordinary yet controversial
design by Bob Bourke. Although the Studebaker Starlight Coupe was produced
in 1949, that year critics were saying it looked like it was the same,
coming or going. So, a major facelift took place for the model year of
1950. The major facelift design was the bullet nose that is capped by an
airplane theme jet intake. The airplane theme mimicks the famous 1949
Ford's grille. The most outstanding feature of the Starlight Coupe beside
the bullet nose is the curved five piece rear window which was an
outstanding glass production feat in 1950. Note the sunvisor mounted over
the front windshield. This coupe body was mounted on a 120 inch wheelbase
and had power from an engine that produced 102 bhp. An improvement for all
1950 models was the replacement of archaic single transverse leaf
suspension with front coil springs. If you ordered an automatic
transmission for your Stude it had the "hill holder" feature, a feature
developed by Studebaker in the 1930's. Rivaling the Big Three automakers
in price, a Starlight Coupe was priced around $1,400. Studebaker broke
sales records this year by selling over 320,000 cars - quite a feat for an
independent car manufacturer. Though the design of this car was different,
if you look at this car's design objectively, I think you will agree that
this car doesn't look that bad at all.

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
