<center><b><font color="#FFCC33">A brief History of the Studebaker</font></b></center>
<p><b><font color="#FFCC33">The Studebaker Brothers started building horse
drawn vehicles in 1852 and by 1902 were building automobiles.</font></b>
<br><b><font color="#FFCC33">&nbsp;Their first automobiles were electric,
although they quickly moved into gasoline powered vehicles.&nbsp;</font></b>
<br><b><font color="#FFCC33">Production increased during 1913, and by 1915
there were more than 45,000 cars sold annually.&nbsp;</font></b>
<br><b><font color="#FFCC33">The type and numbers of cars increased through
the years, and in 1928, Studebaker acquired Pierce-Arrow.&nbsp;</font></b>
<br><b><font color="#FFCC33">By 1933, Studebaker had gone into temporary
receivership, and bounced back in 1934.</font></b><br><b><font color="#FFCC33">In 1939, they produced a new car that was a true economy model - the Champion.</font></b>
<br><b><font color="#FFCC33">During the war, Studebaker produced trucks
and radial engines for aircraft. After the war, they rushed back into automobile
production, with Raymond Loewy's famous styling.</font></b> <br><b><font color="#FFCC33">The most famous Loewy 1953 coupes and hardtops were totally unique to the american scene.&nbsp;</font></b> <br><b><font color="#FFCC33">The year of 1954 Packard bought Studebaker.</font></b> <br><b><font color="#FFCC33">The Lark was introduced in 1959 and provided a compact car that was also roomy.</font></b>
<br><b><font color="#FFCC33">That last blast from Studebaker was the Avanti
that was introduced in 1963.</font></b> <br><b><font color="#FFCC33">In 1964, Studebaker production moved to Canada. The last year that Studebaker was produced was 1966, although the Avanti continued to be built by an independent in South Bend, Indiana.</font></b>
<p><b><font color="#FFCC33">An interesting footnote sent to me by Robert
Dowling ,one of my visitors.</font></b> <br><b><font color="#FFCC33">Packard bought the ailing Studebaker Corp. The Packard stock holders got the short end of the deal.&nbsp;</font></b> <br><b><font color="#FFCC33">Upper management thought they could ride on the (former) prestige of Packard and have Studebaker compete with Chevrolet.
It didn't work and in two years the Studebaker-Packard Corp. was facing
insolvency.&nbsp;</font></b> <br><b><font color="#FFCC33">Creditors demanded they get rid of one of the two manufacturing plants.</font></b> <br><b><font color="#FFCC33">Unfortunately they chose to keep the Studebaker
plant in South Bend Ind. and dump the Packard plant in</font></b>
<br><b><font color="#FFCC33">Detroit. Management soon realized their plan
was failing, but it was to late. The South Bend plant was not designed
to handle cars as wide as the old Packards as was the old Detroit plant,
so they couldn't go back and start production of big wide cars again. I've
seen design plans for the "new Packards". If you've seen a late 50's early
60's Lincoln Continental (the one with the slanted head lights) or the
infamous Edsel that was what they</font></b> <br><b><font color="#FFCC33">looked like. When I first saw them I thought it they were for Ford products.</font></b>
<br><b><font color="#FFCC33">Think about it! If you take the front of an
Edsel an replace the "Horse collar" with a little grill shaped like a Clipper
grill, you've got the Idea! I can't remember if Ford bought the plans or
the design team went over</font></b> <br><b><font color="#FFCC33">to Ford after Packard folded. After the dismal sales of "Packardbakers" (Those Studebakers with the funny looking add-ons) they dropped the Packard name.</font></b> <br><b><font color="#FFCC33">In 64 they dropped the name completely and moved production to Canada.</font></b>
<br><b><font color="#FFCC33">They still make trucks for the Canadian military.</font></b>
