View Full Version : Old junkyard shots

I scanned a few pictures from one of my favorite old haunts. This was about 10 acres deep in the Michigan woods. The property changed hands around 1998 and everything here was crushed up. Not the greatest loss, as rust had taken most everything. But there were still good stainless and and few other things.
Mostly a lot of dead Buicks. Besides the Stude pictures here I remember a White Lark wagon that I never photographed. There were a few Packards too, the ones where the door handles are part of the window trim. One yank and they would come off in your hand.
I did rescue a few parts off this one:

Check out the rust on the Nash, the whole left quarter is almost dissolved! Not sure what the black car with the long rear doors was.

Bona-fide hudson 6 convertible. Wasn't a single good part left on it.

Another rare ragtop. This yard was full of converts.

They are great shots. I love old junk yard photos. I will add some that I took between 12-15 years ago from 3 different junk yards that are all gone now.

a little while ago i found a place on the internet that was selling home videos of the studebaker graveyard, where the prototypes were supposed to of been hidden, it was thirty bucks and i thought my dad would like to see it, so i ordered it and the video was of those cars. the video was taken a little later and most of the cars were destroyed when he made it. The wagon you were talking about was apparently something special, fiberglass or something and was taken out to be restored.

That was a different junk yard. That wagon is being restored at the Studebaker Museum, I believe. It was a 47 Champion, I think. That junk yard was pictured in Special Interest Autos, and I tried to find my copy, but I couldn't. While looking, though, I found this article about a guy whose wife had his whole Studebaker collection hauled away.

Cool Leonard, another junker 52 hardtop I can add to the registry. To bad the serial number will never be known.
As for Mr Reynolds here, that is brutal. I would be very tempted to go postal on the county board.

Hey Dan, how are you doing on your 52? I started mine for the first time last weekend, but I didn't let it run because I don't have a water pump. I am going to get one at York this weekend.

What engine are you going to put in yours?

There seems to be confusion about two different junkyards and two different prototype wagons.

The first junkyard discussed and pictured here is in Michigan. The video referenced is from the old Studebaker Proving Ground depository in the center of the large testing track in Indiana.

The prototype wagon being restored at the SNM is a woody wagon. There was also a fiberglass wagon at the Proving Ground. It was also saved. The last that I knew, it was in storage in Pennsylvania.

A lot of interesting Studebakers there, but one in particular caught my eye. That is the Skytop two door sedan. I have seen hardtop and four door sedan Skytops, but don't recall any two door sedan Skytops (unless George Hamlin's is a 2-dr. sdn.).

Given that it happened 35 years ago, at least we will not feel bad about missing out. I have an ex sister in law who has an uncle in that area who has everything from tractors to well drilling rigs in his yard. Last I knew he was also getting heat to clean up.

My hardtop surrendered its 6 cyl and now houses a 454 Ch**y. I wish i could say it will be on the road soon. Currently putting glass back in it. It's cold up here!
In not too long I'll have some updates on it for my page at www.studebakerhardtop.com.

I don't think it was that bad back then, he must have lived in a snooty neighborhood. It certainly is now, though. I'm lucky in that I live on a street where there seem to be other people with interesting old cars and everyone accepts each other's eccentricities.

The wagon that was in storage in Lewistown, Pa is the woodie from the proving ground that is being restored at the SNM.


I thought that the remains of both prototype wagons were stored at Max's. The woody went to the SNM.

This isn't in a junkyard, but sits in an empty field near Patrick, South Carolina, about 20 minutes from where I live. I haven't been able to track down who owns the property, or the car, but it appears to be a '50 Champion coupe. This was what really sparked my interest in the bullet-nose cars, seeing this poor sad-looking thing sitting out there in that field.

It is a 51 Champion 2 door sedan.
