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.

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.
