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.

1965 STUDEBAKER CRUISER - STUDEBAKER ON IT'S LAST LEG
DOWNWARD SPIRAL OF SALES FORECAST THE DEMISE OF THE STUDEBAKER, A MAKER OF LAND CONVEYANCES SINCE THE 1840'S. STUDEBAKER MOTORS HAD TO CLOSE THE SOUTH BEND, INDIANA PLANT AND TRANSFER ALL CAR PRODUCTION TO HAMILTON, ONTARIO, CANADA. WITHOUT SOUTH BEND PRODUCED ENGINES, POWER CAME FROM CHEVROLET'S 194 CID, 120 BHP OR 283 CID WITH 195 BHP. THE 6 CYLINDER CRUISER WAS OFFERED IN ADDITION TO THE COMMANDER 2 AND 4 DOOR SEDANS AND 4 DOOR WAGONAIRE. V-8 ENGINES WERE FOUND IN COMMANDER SEDANS AND WAGONS AND THE DAYTONA SPORT SEDAN AND WAGON, AND ALSO THE CRUISER. THIS 4-DOOR CRUISER COST $2,230 AND WEIGHS 2,815 LBS. THE HAMILTON PLANT BUILT ONLY 19,435 UNITS TOTAL FOR '65, AND IN 1966 PRODUCED ONLY 8,947 TOTAL. THUS, ENDED IN '66 125 PLUS YEARS OF CONTINUOUS PRODUCTION OF LAND VEHICLES. AS YOU VIEW THIS VIDEO YOU WILL SEE THIS IS STILL AN EXTRAORDINARILY BUILT CAR. THE PAINT FINISH, THE LEATHERETTE VINYL INTERIOR, THE VINYL ROOF, IT'S OVERALL STURDY APPEARENCE, SHOW OFF IT'S QUALITY. IT'S HARD TO ACCEPT THAT THIS IS A CAR MAKER ABOUT TO DISAPPEAR. Another rare and original survivor car brought to you by 55lincoln. THANKS VERY MUCH FOR VIEWING.

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 previous century!

Avanti Introduction
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 later.

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 in 1961. 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 suspension. 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 position. Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Studebaker_Champion
