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.

87 Avanti Studebaker Avanti II Rare 5.0 305 G Body Chevrolet SS Chassis
Test Drive & Walkaround Video http://www.1OwnerCarGuy.com Here is a cool
and rare 87 Studebaker Avanti II. These are really cool cars and they have
a very unique look to them. One of the coolest thing about these is that
they sit on a GM G Platform Chassis so you get the looks of an exotic car
but they are just as easy to work on and find parts for as any normal car.
It has the 5.0L 305 V8 and is the same as the put in the Monte Carlo SS.
The car runs great and is a blast to drive. The exterior is beautiful and
is a nice metallic silver in color that has a hint of red in it. The paint
has a nice shine to it and doesn't show any signs of fading. I really like
the factory chrome wheels that they put on this car. The interior is very
nice and looks great. I had the front seats redone and they look great. I
love the wood grain on the dash and the racey looking steering wheel. The
stereo on this car sounds great. This car has been taken very good care of
over the years. You won't find another one like it. Thank You for watching

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
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
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
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
1955 Studebaker E Series V/8 Pickup For Sale
Offered here is a very rare 1955 Studebaker E Series Pickup. This truck
was a delivery vehicle for the Pacific Beverage Company in Southern
California. It was then subsequently donated to the Murphy Automobile
Museum in Oxnard, California in 2009 where it remains on display. The
truck runs the Studebaker "Econ-O-Miser" V/8 in the half-ton line. This
224ci overhead engine had been first used in the 1951 Commander and had
proven quite reliable matched to a 3-speed on the tree.

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
