View Full Version : Build a phantom Studebaker

I am admittedly still a Studebaker novice in the knowledge department but I was thinking that as Studebaker shared many platform components over the years, one could build some pretty interesting, attractive and feasable "customs/phantoms" that are still all Studebaker. Some of that has been done, such as a 52 HT with a bullet nose and 53-54 convertibles.

Here is one possibility (I apologize for my rudimentary Photoshop skills)... a Studebaker Gnomad...a cross between a 2-door hardtop wagon and sedan delivery... made up of a 54-55 Conestoga with enlarged rear wheel wells to match the front, GT Hawk windows and 56J fins. I suppose a Hawk front end could be added but I couldn't find a pic at the right angle. Of course, crusher-bound donor cars and buckets of cash would be needed, but, hey, we're just pretending.

So, what other all-Studebaker combinations MIGHT be possible to create "new" models? Group hug and discuss.

Those rear wheel cutouts look so "right". I like that a lot.

Interesting concept. I think you may need to Photoshop out the shelf package as I presume this would be a true wagon. You could also experiment with T-Bird portals on the side.

Sorry, only Studebaker parts allowed. :) The portholes will have to stay on the T-bird. However, flat glass side windows could be added back there to have a station wagon instead of a delivery-style.

Re: the package tray... that's not just a package tray it's Studebaker's innovative new retractable wagon "cargo area cover"! :D

I'd love to see an Avanti sportwagon with side windows that swing up (sort of liker a Mercedes 300 SL "Gullwing") or a straight "Nomad" style approach.
Ferrari did one on a Daytona in the early 70s and Pontiac did several concepts (perhaps a small production run) based on late 70s Firebirds.

Here is one possibility (I apologize for my rudimentary Photoshop skills)... a Studebaker Gnomad...a cross between a 2-door hardtop wagon and sedan delivery... made up of a 54-55 Conestoga with enlarged rear wheel wells to match the front, GT Hawk windows and 56J fins. I suppose a Hawk front end could be added but I couldn't find a pic at the right angle. Of course, crusher-bound donor cars and buckets of cash would be needed, but, hey, we're just pretending.

Way pre-Photoshop (1963) I sketched a '63 Daytona two-door hardtop Wagonaire and sent to Sherwood Egbert suggesting it as a sporty station wagon. I received a nice letter back from him (still have it) thanking me for the suggestion, but explaining that there just wasn't a market for two-door wagons.

Bob,

On the extended wheelbase hearse we might need to do a different wind treatment, but I like the concept. However, the GT convertible is stunning. My black '62 GT has a full white vinyl roof and I often get asked if it is a droptop.

I received a nice letter back from him (still have it) thanking me for the suggestion, but explaining that there just wasn't a market for two-door wagons.

Hey Paul, I really like that idea. Do you still have the sketch or did you send the only copy to Egbert? I took your idea and made my own 63 Wagonaire 2 door hardtop.

BShaw, I LOVE that '55 Conestoga GT Hawk thing. I'm gonna have to build it someday.[^] Absolutely stunning.[8D]

A guy in our chapter has a '60 Lark 2 door with a 454 Chevy in it. The front and rear fenders are pretty rusty, so he's gonna used fiberglass front fenders and take the wheel wells from the old fronts and graft them into the rear fenders.

I had the same dream. I used to dream that I was working for Studebaker and was put in charge of producing a 59 Packard. There was no money, so I had to do it with mostly parts on hand. This is what I came up with.

There was a 1951 Champion four door at the 1980 Gettysburg National Meet; two front halves joined, two dashes, two steering wheels, etc. It was street legal and passed Pa inspection. Only a tailpipe and Ford tailight lenses divuldged whether it was coming or going.

It was used by the Jaffa Mosque Shriners in Altoona, Pa for their clowns. I have a slide I took but it won't scan.

How about the Station Wagon in this picture?...

http://static.flickr.com/120/299679111_6d04a8aa4e_b.jpg

This is from a great article in the September 16, 1946 issue of "LIFE". It is about how Studebaker is the first to produce a postwar auto. 10 pages of full color pictures of the postwar assembly line as well as pictures of Vance, Hoffman and other key players.

The caption under the station wagon reads...

"Station wagon and convertible(below)will give Studebaker dealers for the first time a complete range of body styles. Not yet in production, station wagon will be a manufacturing problem because of lumber scarcity, but Studebaker has had to meet competition of Ford, Chevrolet, and Plymouth. Studebaker has about 2,500 U.S. dealers, 1,100 in foreign countries. Typical dealer in small city sells about 100 new cars per year which, together with service and used car business, nets him about $10,000."

Nice "phantom" that almost was.

Hey, I like the change! That is just what those panels are made for. By chance, I came upon some freebie Stude stuff today, including a collection of Turning Wheels from about 1987 to 2001. I found an August 1993 issue, with Fred Fox covering the 1957 sedans. In which is a small B&W copy of a factory photo of a “1957 Commander Panel Wagon styling study”, further stating “used removable panels to cover the rear side windows”, and “was introduced by Studebaker in 1958" Have any 58's survived, were any (kits for 2 door wagons?) even sold?
I have been poking at a picture of a 61 Cruiser we had, thinking along the line of a phaeton.
Or how about a 57 Provincial express pick up? The fins out back would look killer on a pick-up....hmmm, got me thinking, I do have two you know, and I have not cut anything up as of late.
Like my hot rod buddy says, “anybody can restore a car, it takes a real man to cut one up”, I just don’t have the heart unless it is really bad to begin with though. I will see what the Gimp and me can do.
Well, no harm in a little day dreaming.

Wasn't the woody found in the woods where Studebaker dumped their prototypes. I recall that it was being restored at one time. Is it finished? I also heard that the prototype convertible sat at a gas station in South Bend for many years. Where is it now? There was a nice 53 convertible at Charlotte. Was that the prototype?

The '47 woody was being restored by the SNM, I think. The convertable belongs to a guy in California, so I've heard. The one in Charlotte was a custom owned/built by James Maloney.

DAVE, THE EVIL TWIN FROM OKLAHOMA

Since this is just fantasy, I deleted the rear vent window. If Studebaker had really tried to produce a 4 door hardtop in this body, the engineers would have required the vent window to stay so that the glass would have room to roll down into the door. Sort of like the Rambler 4 door hardtops were done. Of course, now the manufacturers just use little black triangles to make up the space where the window won't fit.

According to my 2004 SDC Roster, Wayne Klemetti is still an SDC member and still in Mass.

I have known of many open and closed shortened K bodies. The rear quarters are usually shortened enough to exchange a Lark frame for the 120.5 inch K frame. The car pictured at York does not appear to be shortened, unless it is in the doors. The best shortened K body that I know of is the one that John Bridges built to create what Bob Bourke wanted Studebaker to build.

That car that I posted (actually at Reedsville) was shortened at the doors, which I thought was really strange. It was a long time ago, but it seemed that the doors were so short that you could hardly get into the car. Maybe that is why it was for sale
