I have known of the Israeli connection to Studebaker (and other U.S. brands) but had never heard the details of the presidential limo build there. Very interesting reading.

I purchased a few nos Studebaker items from a fellow in Haifa for my Wagonaire.
I wonder if he worked there?

Thank you! That was a very well-executed conversion of that Cruiser.
