    Maybe...

      I think that it's the red Budweiser, horse drawn wagon.

          Agree! If exposure is the criteria, absolutely no question the Muppet movie Studebaker was seen by more than any other anywhere, any time. Did they know what it was? Probably not.

                Most exposure, YES! I would have to agree, although probably not even 1 percent of the world knows it's a Studebaker. -----Most famous as a Studebaker--Fozzie's car.

                  Fozzie's Studebaker introduced me at 6 years old.

                    Fozzie's Studebaker is still at it , As it is in some Nespresso commercials and some network is doing a special on the Muppet movie, Ed

                      I'll vote for the Muppet Movie too. It's probably the reason most non-Studebaker people think of the Bullet Nose when they think of Studebaker, despite that it was just a two year gimmick. 

                      A guy at work was surprised when a '52 popped up for sale on HAMB and it didn't have the bullet.
                      1963 Champ "Stu Bludebaker"- sometimes driver
                      1957 Silver Hawk "Josie"- picking up the pieces after an unreliable body man let it rot for 11 years from an almost driver to a basket case
                      1951 Land Cruiser "Bunnie Ketcher" only 47M miles!
                      1951 Commander Starlight "Dale"- basket case
                      1947 Champion "Sally"- basket case
                      1941 Commander Land Cruiser "Ursula"- basket case

                        Before I clicked on this thread I took the time to think what it would be ... I thought the muppet Studebaker as well .. The Budweiser wagon is famous but rarely does anyone know who made it .. I have a full sized poster of the Muppets with the bullet nose and I will never sell it lol ..

                            I guess I should have asked for the most famous Race Car.
