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!

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.

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.

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
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!
