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!

Abandoned relic runs again
Truck comes to life again after sitting abandoned for decades in the heart of the Alaskan wilderness. The engine is the rugged Hercules JXD. The truck was later driven 75 miles back to civilization. Studebaker US6 застывшими во времени Это 1945 Studebaker US6 был оставлен в пустыне Аляски на протяжении двух десятилетий. Это видео, лето 2009 Studebaker US6 возвращается к жизни и отвезли обратно в цивилизацию расстоянии 75 миль. Studebaker US6 получит некоторые восстановления. В настоящее время семь Studebaker US6 грузовики все бегут и дисков. Alaska , God's Country. There are a lot of really good beer drinking stories about lost relics or abandoned treasures in the massive Alaskan wilderness. There are stories of lost gold mines and eccentric miners who vanished or died after burying a cache of gold in the late 1800s or early 1900s that's just waiting for some lucky soul to stumble over. There are dozens stories of wrecked WWII aircraft and one particularly of a crash landed and mostly intact Bell P-39 Air Cobra that is said to have belly landed in eight feet of powdered snow somewhere up around Eureka Summit during the war. The locals however are pretty tight lipped concerning these stories and dont give up their secrets very often , especially to city slickers. Most of these tales are just that, good stories, and are probably based on a grain of truth and nothing more but they make good stories and theyre OUR stories. Myself, Ive always enjoyed hearing the tales and like most folks find my voice raising with each question that I ask in relation to the particular subjects where abouts, knowing full well that the guy telling me the story knows as little as I do. Yet having always been a WWII truck and aircraft enthusiast its easy to get wound up with each telling of a certain story. Ad to it the mystique of the Alaskan wilderness and a possible abandoned gold mine somewhere in the telling and well, its a story worth repeating and maybe even adding one or two of my own personal details to it for good measure. One story that has been around for decades is that of a big game hunting guide that had a place north of Eureka. The story goes that he had a Studebaker US6 from WWII that he used to haul supplies from an air field that is 75 miles out of Eureka. According to the story, the old gentleman had eventually died and the Studebaker had sat abandoned at the remote airstrip ever since. The truck's engine had, had water instead of anti-freeze in it and therefor supposedly froze up with ice and broke the cylinder head. The truck , it is said, is all there and intact. To claim this relic would be simple, all a person would have to do is find a cylinder head for a 1940s Hercules JXD , fly up to the air field that is 75 miles from no where , install the cylinder head and then get a truck running that has sat deteriorating for 20 years in the Alaskan wilderness , have someone fly you gas and beer and then drive a 1945 Studebaker 75 miles back to civilization. Oh and did I mention that there are no roads and plenty of grizzly bears too? That really would make a good story. Well thats just exactly what Robert did. The story of the old truck is true and I loaned him a Hercules JXD cylinder head in August of 2009. Ray has an airplane and flew 'Close Air Support' hauling fuel , beer and moral support from all of us here at home. I think the videos explain the rest. Oh and if you ask why did they do this? If I have to explain , you wouldnt understand.

1957 Studebaker Golden Hawk
Probably one of the proudest, best expressions of Studebaker Packard! The styling is a nice derivative of Lowey's coupe of 1953...but it has just the right styling to make it stand out as a performance car. A supercharged Studebaker V8 engine added just the right punch!
