Any of you have a picture of the prettiest Studebaker you've ever seen? Doesn't have to belong to you. Here's the prettiest Stude that's not a truck that I have ever seen:

Don't have a pic, but in my book it would be Dick Steinkamp's "S2D" - there's just something about the early C-Ks that just works. A very very close second would be that black President business coupe that was up on eBay a while back.

A friend of mine owned this cream 53 Commander hardtop with a dark blue top, when I was in high school. I always thought it was the best looking Studebaker I had ever seen. I have never see4n another one exactly like it.http://i99.photobucket.com/albums/l288/lstude/53Commandercreambluecc.jpg

I think that most people will respond with a C-K, including myself. :)

Though perhaps the most beautiful Stude I've ever seen has to be this '58 Golden Hawk, owning to some friends in the Atlanta, GA area.
BTW, I can say from first hand experience that it drives just as good as it looks. :D

They also just bought a gorgeous lemon/lime '55 Speedster as well.

Man, those are both BEE-UTIFUL Hawks! That first one, I've seen Larks that color but never Hawks...it IS striking!! Wow, a Hawk that's not white, black, or red!!!!

That Golden Hawk is striking too...'58's you hardly ever see, and again a really pretty, different color. Was that on the back cover of a TW some time back? I think maybe. Wow, nice house in the background too.

OK, I haven't seen a real car like this, but I always thought I would just die at the opportunity to own a Jet Green '64 GT with Black Sports Roof and wire wheel covers, as shown in the multi-page '64 Stude ad I have hanging on my office wall.

Yes, that Golden Hawk was on the cover of TW a few years back. I'm not sure of the date though. I do know that the background in NYC with the twin towers. The current owners have only had it a couple of years. The color is white and Park Green I think.

Just for the heck of it, here's a few nice ones I have on my computer.

I apologize to you dial up guys. ;)

Yes, I know they're a little big, but it's worth it. [8D]

My memory is failing me, but is the Jet Green the very dark '64 green? If so, a friend of mine bought the car that you want NEW. It was/is a '64 Hawk in dark green with the black canopy and wire wheel covers, plus other things like Powershift AT. He drove it for special use (not everyday) for many years. In the late '70s-early '80s, he sold it to someone (I believe) in the mid-Atlantic area.

Sorry to get off topic, but I just wanted to compliment Matthew on his latest signature photo. It has all the South Georgia elements (water, sandy soil, trees with what appears to be spanish moss hanging from them), and your truck looks like a faithful dog, leaning with its head cocked to one side.

Gary, yes Jet Green is the dark green (Horizon Green being the light green). Your friend's car sounds exactly like the one in the ad. Wonder if, like me, he said, "Wow, I want that EXACT car!" (difference being, he actually BOUGHT one!)

A guy in my hometown had a dark blue (forget the name, I think Strato Blue) '64 Daytona Hardtop that looked just like the illustration in the '64 sales brochure. I often wondered if that's why he bought that combination...liked it in the brochure.

Gary, only met you once, but I always enjoy your Studebaker remembrances.

I took that from a recent camping trip, right on the Altamaha river. And yes that is Spanish moss. (Still getting over those darned red bugs!!![}:)])

The prettiest cars (IMHO;)) are the ones most displayed here. The '53 & '54s. Though I prefer the sedans and Land Cruisers. Another I think is gorgeous is the '56 sedan. I love the y-bodied sedans. Yet another one I love is the '57 Packard Town Sedan. A perfect blend. Studebaker plus Packard equals Packardbaker.[8D]
http://i16.photobucket.com/albums/b18/Studeclunker/studebaby/54landcruiserIthink.jpg This was taken in La Palma park, Anaheim CA.

I also love the Larks. http://i16.photobucket.com/albums/b18/Studeclunker/studebaby/62sideview-1.jpg
This '62 champagne mist Cruiser was an auction car in Oregon. Another one that the dimple plastic seat covers perfectly preserved the upholstry.
Compare it to this picture from Studebaker of a '63 Cruiser: http://i16.photobucket.com/albums/b18/Studeclunker/studebaby/1963_Studebaker_Lark_Cruiser.jpg

http://i16.photobucket.com/albums/b18/Studeclunker/studebaby/63cruiserinterior.jpg The blue interior is a car in Minnesota that is reputed to have only 9k mi. on it.
Of course the most beautiful studebaker I've ever owned was built in, as I recall, 1892. This picture was taken around 1902 by the original owner:http://i16.photobucket.com/albums/b18/Studeclunker/studebaby/roofseatbreakhires.jpg
Sorry, I just could'nt help it.:D:D(LOL)
After all, no one said it had to be a horseless Studebaker(LOL)!:D:D;)

Scott, yes it was quite the deluxe version in every sense of the word. Four-in-hand driving was the sport of the rich and famous in the nineteenth century. The story has it that the original owner struck it rich in silver. It looked just as nice the last time I saw it. It's currently red and black. Primarily black. with buff whipcord upholstry. All done in the original colours.

The louvers underneath were actually louvered doors that led to several compartments. One could put dogs, picnic baskets, or whatever one needed to for the function the vehicle was put to that day. Some of these vehicles had drawers that rolled out to be used like picnic baskets. Others had wicker baskets underneath. This one came with folding tables, chairs, and disintegrating wicker baskets. I was lucky enough to find similar baskets in excellent condition at a later auction. Cost me dearly, I can tell you. Survived on peanut butter sandwhiches for a month afterwards!:D:D:D(LOL)

The basic type of this vehicle is a Roof Seat Brake. This one was called a Myopia Roof Seat Brake. The reason for Myopia was that it was shorter by two seats, several compartments, and about six feet. These Brakes, as they were called, also doubled as grandstands at horse shows, fairs, and of course, horse races. It was sacrificed to buy our first home. Truely a blood sacrifice, as I really loved the thing. Needed the house, couldn't afford to turn it out anymore.[V] The house won out.
Sorry about running along so long. Happy memories and all...

This may be mildly amusing. This week I was showing slides of St Petersburg churches in my college history class and...OOPS: a slide of my Hawk was in the tray. Now here we SDC geezers are ogling over these pictures. But we're true believers. The reaction of these little infidels born a quarter of a century after the Hawk was very interesting. They thought it was "really cool". I wonder if they were angling for a grade or really meant it?

This may be mildly amusing. This week I was showing slides of St Petersburg churches in my college history class and...OOPS: a slide of my Hawk was in the tray. Now here we SDC geezers are ogling over these pictures. But we're true believers. The reaction of these little infidels born a quarter of a century after the Hawk was very interesting. They thought it was "really cool". I wonder if they were angling for a grade or really meant it?

Well Steve, that's not cheating too much. After all the body of the Champ is from a car. Kind of like the Coupe Express. Just not so classy. Though I really prefer the step-sides.

That is one really beautiful Champ though. Now if it was just that beautiful Robin's Egg Blue Studebaker used so much...

Lotsa Larks!
