I know Studebaker was diversified beyond just auto manufacturing, but just how far? I know they did or at one time owned STP, Gravely (garden tractors, etc) and had military contracts. Weren't they owners or co-owners of McCullough/Paxton until it was sold to the Garlitz brothers? Anything else? What actually happened to Studebaker as a corporation at the final end? Sold off piece by piece, bought out by someone else for it's assets? I'm sure some of you folks out there know!

They also held Onan (the generator folks) for awhile as well as Clarke Equip. (floor polishers and such). They eventually ended up being absorbed - for the most part - by McGraw - Edison. Some pieces were spun off or further diluted to where what's left is part of the Cooper Group. There's also Studebaker-Worthington - some sort of financial services outift (sorry to be so vague) which is kinda interesting seeing as how Studebaker didn't manage their so well.[V]

Here is a page from the 1965 Studebaker annual report listing their businesses at that time.

When I bought my first computer in 1992, Office America was offering financing through Studebaker Worthington. I think Studebaker Worthington has now been gobbled up by another company, but I can't remember who.

Studebaker-Worthington is on the Web at http://www.studebaker.com/, believe it or not. And they explain it all in their "Who are we?" page:


quote:If you're thinking, "Hey, wasn't Studebaker a car they used to make?", you're right.

We were originally part of a multi-billion-dollar industrial company that used to manufacture the Studebaker car.

Today, Studebaker-Worthington Leasing Corp. is a wholly owned subsidiary of State Bank of Long Island (Amex symbol STB), a billion-dollar plus commercial bank based in Jericho, NY.


Ironically, they lease everything but cars ;)

I still have my 1978 Studebaker Gravely that I bought new for $2300. That was a lot of money for a rider tractor in '78, but then it still runs strong and I've only had it to the shop once. It earned it's keep for 20 years at the fishing resort we had.

They are now owned by Ariens, and the only rider they make is a zero radius mower. I'm also sure they will not last 28 years.

There was an extensive article in TURNING WHEELS maybe ten or more years ago. They owned the company that made the device that inserts studs into winter treads, a company that manufactured refrigerated display cases, as well as a small airline.

The last Annual report that I have is 1966. That is when Studebaker wrote my mother and told her that they would buy her stock back. The stock had originally been purchased by my grandfather, but they kept having reverse splits until she had almost nothing left. She should have held on to it, but she thought the company had no hope for the future. The company that made the device to insert studs was Big 4. The studs were called STUDEGRIP, Great name! I think most states outlawed studs, though. Below is a page from the 66 annual report. It doesn't mention any airline. Maybe that came later.

I did a bit of research and discovered that the airline was Trans International Airlines, which was owned by Kirk Kerkorian (who I understand is dumping all his GM stock). It was purchased in 1962 and sold back to him in 1964. As I recall Studebaker used this subsiduiary to shuttle the first few Avanti's around the country during their introduction.

There was a Studebaker stock certificate with Kirk Kerkorian's name on it on eBay a while back. I think it went for over $100.00. He likes to get into companies that are having trouble.

Here is another great picture from the 66 annual report. It was taken in Paris. I don't know what kind of truck it is.

How ironic is it that I drive up to the gym I volunteer at in a Stude pickup and use a Clarke floor machine made by Studebaker. Bet there aren't many who can say that.
Of course they are both old and a bit on the tired side and the floor machine is just about done but what the heck so am I

The truck is a Citroen 'H' model; also known as the 'tube van'. The TW article was by Fred K. Fox that was published in February, 1983. Interestingly enough, my parents had two brand new white 'Studebakers' in their basement in 1962, and a blue 1950 sitting in the driveway. The washer and dryer were made by Franklin Electric for the now defunct T. Eaton's department store chain under the 'Viking' label.

Speaking of appliances, I always thought the "s" in Gibson appliances looked a lot like the lazy Studebaker s.

I have a Gravely model L, a pre-Studebaker model. Gravely's own engine, a single-cylinder T-head with full pressure lubrication, and a spin-on oil filter.
