  • Studebaker firsts

    Can anybody connect me with the chart listing Studebaker firsts that was published on the forum a while ago? I don't remember how long ago, may have been a year or more! Thanks- Jim

    Several Posts came up in a Search about this but the "Lists" are gone, there were some Photobucket Pics I don't know of what because they are gone.

      Would this help? It was sent out with some of the International Drive Your Studebaker Day promotional material a couple of years ago

          1961, Safety padded dash? 55 door safety latch? Nice to say you are the first, but if they were ineffective, what is the sense. Only in a Stude have I ever had a door swing open, and one is more likely to hit the windshield before the dash in a 61 Lark.

            This is an interesting article about 1st's too. Not Studebaker
            , but seems to disagree with a couple of items. http://www.autonews.com/article/1996...idn't-sell.

              You have to look no further than the "Almanac" in your January 1996 Turning Wheels, pages 42-44.

                You can download Mr. Quinn"s excellent article HERE

                There also is another good reference piece, "Studebaker Myths & Misconceptions" you can download HERE

                Both of these are good to have on hand (or copy and handout) at car shows. I made a display stand for them and folks do stop and read them. I also believe people view them as more "authoritative" than just me telling them things.
