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!

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.
