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.

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.

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 company. 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.

Studebaker car commercials aired 1950
These were "local" commercials that aired during a 1950 episode of a popular-yet-short-lived "local" Los Angeles television series. For some reason, I can imagine King Kai driving a car like this.
