Will the madness ever end![:p] There is a 87 Taurus wagon on eBay with a 50 Studebaker front end grafted onto it and 50 Studebaker tail lights. Probably no one on this forum will be bidding on it, but if you want to, I would suggest checking out the vendor's feedback. It is one of the worst I have seen.

Oh my gosh!!!
That is the weirdest thing I've ever seen. Horrific, yet you're somehow drawn to it.

And this coming from a guy who would love a late model Taurus wagon (the oval "mother ship") to customize into a two-door "Yesmad".

They even put the bump in the rear doors to match the original rear fender shape.

It's really not "that" bad looking!
But it's a FOUR cylinder....
And did you see his feedback?

I like the car too...especially that rear quarter. I think the pontoon part of the front fender (in front of the wheel) is a little too heavy looking to be proportioned correctly, however.

If you need to drive a Taurus wagon, this one would sure be a lot more fun than a stock one [8D]

If I recall, this is the second pass for this car (I can't imagine someone else doing this). Somehow I recall that it was siver before.

The rear looks good, the front is horrible. I think a 1952 front end would have looked better; a front bumper would help.

Not in my wildest imagination would I have mated a 50 Champion to a Taurus wagon. Although I have to admit, the Stude front end looks a whole lot better than that "Guppie Mouth" that the Taurus had originally!

I have to be honest, I like it!! I'd prefer it in a different color, though...

As a side note, I had one of these 4 cyl. 5 spd. Taurus wagons- was a real pleasure to drive! Also had 2 sedans- one of which I still have... decent pep for a 4, plus a pretty good car overall...

No idea what they were thinking with that awful tall shifter, but the stock short shifter was excellent!

It does say a lot about Studebaker design. For it to blend in so well with style of a car thirty-seven years later is amazing to me. I like it but won't be bidding on it[8D]
