This looks to me like the most original '57 Parkview 2 Door Wagon you will ever see or find, it does not look like anyone has messed with it for it's whole life. It's Inland Southern Calif. location supports it's fine unrestored condition. :!:

Very HPOF, but maybe breaking down and spending a few bucks with SI for the column shift indicator would have been nice too.

This will be a nice car for someone . . . hopefully a SDC member! I'd clean it up, get it running right, and leave it along for a while and drive as is! Too bad so far away from Indiana!!

License plate frames are from A.C. Almind, the long time Studebaker dealer in Redlands. When Studebaker folded the tent, Almind became a Toyota dealer.

AMAZING- another as yet undocumented car for the '56-'58 sedan/wagon registry!!!
I don't have the list handy, but I think this makes around sixteen '57 Parkviews now.
They are still out there, waiting to be found. :!:

I wonder what the odds are that this car and my '58 Packard ever met in the garage?
My '58 Packard ('Cleo') was sold new at that same dealer.

She is a beauty because she is NOT a '56!!!
I may be a bit bias, though...

I understand Dave...and MORE POWER TO YOU! (I am very partial to '56 sedans/wagons though:))

Hamer Studebaker in Mission Hills also became a Toyota dealer...and is still in business today. When Studebaker folded the tent, Toyota sent 'roadmen' nationwide and signed up select former Studebaker dealers.

In 1974, when Almind sold all their Studebaker parts, I bought everything...including the parts catalogs and shop manuals. I then went over to 'old man' Almind's home, bought more stuff.

The one thing the old man had (his son was running the business) that he wouldn't part with, was a bas relief wall plaque of the 5 Studebaker Brothers. I've never seen another. Have any of y'all seen any?

The Studebaker dealer in Santa Fe, NM also became a Toyota shop. That dealership was sold once about 10 - 12 years ago, but still going strong.
