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.
1951 Studebaker Champion Engine Revamp
SCCNSW member Scott had some issues with his Champion's engine, and needed
to give it some attention. While he was at it, he dressed it up a bit, and
gave it a little bit more performance in 2011.

2010 Drags two Champ powered Studebakers.
2010 Brown County Studebaker Drags. Jeff Poe runs Jim Roberts in a
Handicapped race (dial in) of two Champ six 169ci flat head engines. Jim's
1953 Champion is an automatic, and Jeff's 1951 PU is also an original 169
Champion with two one barrel carbs, split Exhaust, and a five speed from a S10. The Champ
powered truck gets good rubber in the first two gears even on a sticky drag
strip but power shifting at 4000RPMs gets the win with a 13.03 1/8th mile
Studebaker Woody Fastback Custom at SEMA from Eastwood
Check out this interview from SEMA 2013 in Las Vegas. The guys from
Eastwood get an up close look at the amazing '51 Stude Woody that was built
by Hill's Rod & Custom in California. It features incredible wood work as
well as a 390 cid Ford Edsel V8 with a rare injection system that was
designed by aircraft engineers and featured on the cover of Hot Rod
magazine in 1959. This was one of the most popular cars at SEMA and we're
sure you'll be impressed after you watch the video.
Eastwood has everything you need to do the job right when you're restoring
your car, truck or motorcycle - welders, plasma cutters, powder coating
supplies, abrasive blasters and media, hand tools, rust solutions, paint
and paint guns, specialty paints and coatings, metal fab tools and more!

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.
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
