I saw this book in Hemmings Classic Car and thought I would share.
I don't know how much Studebaker content there is but I'm still in love with that 64 GT!
Nice day to all.

That's odd, the ONLY detail text of a huge list of books that is not correct for the Book Cover and Name shown!

They copied the 1950-'65 Chrysler Hardtop Text info and put it on the Independent Hardtops 1949-1964 Book Cover! :(
Doesn't say much about the quality or reliability of "New Albany Books".

These Books are all very heavily Chrysler oriented.

If that is the cover of the book its strange to me that they would use a modified car of that time and also not show it on the cover without the windows rolled down

Yes, I noticed that. But, as they put a GT on the front cover, I wanted to give them a chance.

I wasn't sure about the wheels. Are these aftermarket ones? I thought they were identical to this model.

The special built one off '63 GT Show Car with the special Painted roof does not have Factory/Dealer optional or available wheels, they ARE aftermarket.
