    Wouldn't you know it, still another GREAT Studebaker name or feature to be "stolen" by another Auto Co. like Transtar, Commander, Daytona, Challenger, Champion and overhead lighting controls, rocker switches, roll bar, Disc. Brakes, Hill Holders, Vanity Trays, cup holders, limited slip differentials, sliding roof, Sky-Top, side marker lights, Ign.-on running lights, etc, etc, etc!

    What's next...Flight-O-Matic? Maybe I'll be a new Cessna auto pilot!

        To go with the 50s-60's Cessna slogan...the
        "Land O-Matic" landing gear!

        Just a minor point...Plenty of earlier European cars had fabric "Sky-Top"-like sunroofs...

            Several comments, the hill holder (or No-Roll unit) was a product of Bendix, Packard's had the side marker lights and as we have hashed out before, disc brakes appeared on American cars before Studebaker used them.

                Wait a minute there, hold your horse carts!! The "Hill Holder" name was exclusively a Studebaker name for Bendix's No-Rol valve, but who used it first?...Studebaker!

                And no mass produced American car had the Discs. before Studebaker. Wasn't it some obscure experimental Crosley model, that never made mass production?

                        Chrysler had a disc brake option in the early 50s. It had an internal caliper. Not at all like the modern style and apparently not a popular option. I believe Avanti was the first American car with disc brakes standard.

                            The humor of the article was the multiplication of the number of gears available, compared to our Powershift. Six speed Powershift to our 3 speed Powershift. I also love the way they named the transmission like they name automobiles. I feel like saying, Powershift, its a beast I tell ya [)]!!
