  • Unlikely finds on Ebay.

    This certainly is something you don't see every day, a clean Stude from the Canadian era! Just take a look at the ad and see what y'all think of it yourselves.

    Also, a neat Presidential Project for those with the resources to do it!

    Jake Robinson Kaywell: Shoo-wops and doo-wops galore to the background of some fine Studes. I'm eager and ready to go!

    1962 GT Hawk - "Daisy-Mae" - she came dressed to kill in etherial green with a charming turquoise inside. I'm hopelessly in love!

    That '64 Challenger is a beauty! Too bad it doesn't have overdrive, but that would be an easy correction.

      Agreed r1lark! From what I can see it seems that overdrive conversion kits aren't that difficult to find.

        I do not get your "Canadian era" comment. 1964 Challengers were not made in Canada. The 1956 President is also a South Bend car.

          Look, I thought that 1964 Challengers were indeed built at the Hamiltion facility. I also knew from the get-go that 1956 Presidents (heck ALL Studebakers!) until 1964-ish were produced in South Bend.

            No 1964 Challengers were built in the Hamilton plant.
            There were pre-1964 Studebakers assembled in many places other than South Bend, such as; Vernon (LA), Detroit, foreign locations.

              My mistake then. Looks like I'm gonna have to do some research.

                Jake there are many misconceptions of what happened in that 1964 Era, you are NOT alone!

                What happened is; Stude. cars and during some years even some Trucks, for Many, many years were always built also in the Studebaker of Canada Limited Plant in Hamilton, Ontario Canada.

                In 1964 after Production was stopped in Dec. 1963, of the New redesigned 1964 Models, the Lark Type Line they were building up there was Exported to the U.S. to keep as much of the Dealer Network going that could be.

                So there are "Second Series" 1964's, very slightly different with small differences like a Solid Off-White Steering Wheel instead of a Color matching Solid or Two Tone wheel, as well as the early Production South Bend '64's built here from Aug. 1963 to Dec. '63.

                Apparently, for some unknown reason even though the Canadians bought a LOT, of economy Models, low trim Levels, Champions, Lark Sixes, Four doors etc. the "Stripper" Model Challengers were never built there.

                People repeating Urban Legends, will tell you that; "when Studebaker moved to Canada" (which they Never did) they continued building Avantis there (which they also NEVER did) !

                  Just a couple options short, of being another PBW.
