1940 Studebaker Champion Introduction
The Studebaker Champion is an automobile which was produced by the Studebaker Corporation of South Bend, Indiana from the beginning of the 1939 model year until 1958. The success of the Champion in 1939 was imperative to Studebaker's survival following weak sales during the 1938 model year. Unlike most other cars, the Champion was designed from a "clean sheet", and had no restrictions caused by necessarily utilizing older parts or requiring the subsequent use of its components in heavier vehicles. Market research guided the selection of features, but a key principle adhered to was the engineering watchword "weight is the enemy." For its size, it was one of the lightest cars of its era. Its compact straight-6 engine outlasted the model itself and was produced to the end of the 1964 model year, with a change to an OHV design in 1961. The Champion was one of Studebaker's best-selling models because of its low price (US$660 for the two-door business coupe in 1939), durable engine, and styling. The car's ponton styling was authored by industrial designer Raymond Loewy who had been under contract with Studebaker for the design of their automobiles. Champions won Mobilgas economy runs by posting the highest gas mileage tests. During World War II, Champions were coveted for their high mileage at a time when gas was rationed in the United States. From 1943-1945, the Champion engine was used as the powerplant for the Studebaker M29 Weasel personnel and cargo carrier, which also used four sets of the Champion's leaf springs arranged transversely for its bogie suspension. The Champion was phased out in 1958 in preparation for the introduction of the 1959 Studebaker Lark. Prior to this, Studebaker had been placed under receivership, and the company was attempting to return to a profitable position. Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Studebaker_Champion

1949 Nash Ambassador Airflyte barnfind 1st time driven in over 44 years
Come along for a ride in this arcane behemoth !!! It feels so satisfying to drive a car that has sat for so long and required so much work to bring back to life and restore to driver status. This kind of job satisfaction keeps me going. It's my life reward and passion. All brakes, fuel system, engine and chassis repairs now complete. This old Airflyte now purrs like a kitten and stops on a dime. Update: this car is a "Special Super", of course, we all know it it super special....Haha, it has special handwritten in pencil on the fire wall, but, I never thought much about it. Turns out it has been positively identified as a very rare 1949 "Special Super", no other 1949 special supers are known to exist....yet

1949 Nash Ambassador Airflyte Barnfind
( An amazing time capsule ! ) A NASH-o-Rific huge car for me!. Garm's new 1949 Nash literally has not been touched since 1967. I'm sure the air in the trunk and glove box was circa 1967. It will be here while a mechanical restoration is performed, the patina will live on with it's new owner in S. Cal. What a beauty!





1956 Nash Ambassador Special V8 Custom Sedan Test Drive
This is the 56 Nash Ambassador Special V8 four door Custom Sedan owned Peter and Mary. This complete restoration of excellent quality and high standards was recently completed by Peter. He purchased the car from the original owner and drove it home to begin the extensive restoration. The car was completely disassembled and every detail recorded, inspected and restored. This Nash is has the Nash V8 that was introduced mid-year. This engine of 190 H.P. and 250 C.I. design was changed in 1957 to 327 C.I. and used in the Rambler Jeep and all other AMC cars up into the 60's. This was the most luxurious Nash model produced in the 50's. YES, it has the fold-down seats that make into a bed. Nash offered camping accessories such as removable bug screens for the windows and a mattress to place over the top of the seats for additional comfort. Peter painstakingly restored the car true to the correct original offering including the 3-tone paint colors in Ballerina Red, Boulevard Gray and Frost White. This is a striking color combination that represents some of the bold colors offered by some manufactures of the time. The interior is also absolutely correct and restored using the Silver Leaf pattern cloth that Peter was able to source from SMS Interior fabrics in Oregon. The car is a pleasure to drive and has already been shown and won "Best of Show" and "First in Class" in well noted Concour d'Elegance events including the Grand National Nash Club 2012 meeting in Idaho. The car is not a "trailer queen" at all, Peter and Mary drive the car to shows and enjoy the drive and getting together with other car buffs wherever they go.
