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.

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.
