1953 Studebaker TV commercial.mov

Aaron Severson over at ateupwithmotor.com shines a light once again on orphan cars. This time he's written about some of Studebaker's most handsome vehicles in an article called "The Once and Future Coupe: The Loewy Coupes and the Studebaker Hawk." At Torq-O, we pulled up the rug and slid through the trap door searching for some media to help him tell his story. From the Torq-O Media Archive, here's some celluloid that hasn't been seen since 1953. Check out Aaron's story, and then slide over to Torq-O.com for more Studebaker content!

1956 Packard Executive TV Commercial
Nearly broke in spring 1956, Studebaker-Packard Corp. brought out a last-gasp value leader in its luxury Packard brand, the Executive. Created by grafting the front end onto its junior Clipper body, the Executive was only produced for a few months before the Packard Detroit assembly operations were shut down. This TV ad is the last gasp of a great name. The next Packard models introduced were the "Packabakers" built on Studebaker bodies in South Bend, Ind.

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.





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.
