Thanks to Canadian automotive writer and historian, Perry Zavitz, here's some interesting Studebaker trivia that history recorded on January 2nd.

January 2nd 1860 - John Mohler Studebaker marries Mary Jane Stull.

January 2nd 1946 - After a parts shortage Studebaker is now able to begin production of its 1946 models, virtually the same as the 1942 models.

January 2nd 1964 - Studebaker begins its transfer of all car production out of South Bend, Indiana to Hamilton, Ontario.

Happy New Year to all!!!
