ANY 2 door wagon deserves to live. Hope somebody sees the potential in it.

In the day was the speedometer design well received?

It's hard to say how rare it is, being that the Scotsman Wagon was the highest production '58 Studebaker, but I guess the survival rate IS pretty low.
There were very few built with 259 V-8's but this one has a '63 or '64 Engine so probably not one of them.

Maybe the Wagan's are more rare! :D

Looking at that rear seat upholstery, it's surprising that Studebaker put such fancy material into a stripper!

I love the way the rear fenders extend past the tailgate.

That is my pet peeve Dave. Of course it's rare, it's a Studebaker. This guy remined us twice in the first 2 sentences. (sigh)

I've always wondered that too, I think that it's an ugly design, but beauty is in the eye of the beholder I guess.

According to information from my club colleague's research there were 7680 2-door Scotsman Wagons built including the Ambulets. Provincial Wagons 2412 including Ambulets and 159 Packard Wagons for a grand total of 10251 1958 Wagons. Scotsmans may indeed be rare today as I imagine they were throw-away vehicles at the time.

What is the round oversized canteen device to the right of the engine in the engine shot?

[8D] Dan: I'll bet it is a temporary gas tank, that the car will not run off its original fuel system. Note the rubber hose coming off the carb inlet and the factory pipe from the fuel pump having been abandoned.

They may elevate that big "canteen" for gravity feed and hook up that loose end of the rubber hose to a fitting on the bottom of the canteen when they want to start the engine. BP
