Actually, for a few years, Studebaker was the official distributor of Volkswagens in the U.S., an accounting deal because Studebaker was based in Canada in 1964-66 and could get about $50 of import tax credits. Additionally, the Studebaker importer/assembler in Belgium (D'Ieteren) also assembled VW's, was eventually taken over by VW. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Audi_Brussels

The fourth car in line was kept in the Inspection Area for an extended period of time being that the inspectors were clueless as to how a Beetle morphed into a Lark.

Do my eyes deceive me or did the 5th, 7th and possibly 8th car also morph? That would have been a fun assembly line to work on. Steve

Studebaker almost owned VW after WWII. When the war was over and occupied Germany was being divided up supposedly VW was offered to Studebaker. For whatever reason they turned it down.

This could be a photo of the South African assembly line, which was primarily a VW assembler but who also took on Studebaker.
