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!
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
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
and paint guns, specialty paints and coatings, metal fab tools and more!

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
