  • STUDEBAKER WARTIME PRINTS

    Dick Quinn recently showed a print of a Studebaker 6x6 army truck on the Alcan highway. We all know the advertising Studebaker did during WW2, particularly with the 6x6 truck & the B17 bombers with the paintings originally done by Frederic Tellander in 1943.
    During this period Studebaker additionally sent to their Dealers boxed sets of ten prints on art stock (15"x13") with five different ones of the 6x6 trucks & five of the B17 bombers. These were enclosed in a portfolio stating "Studebaker is proud of its assignments in the
    arming of our Nation and its Allies". This complete & mint boxed set I have in my Studebaker memorabilia collection. I wonder if any other set has survived the sixty odd years since those dark days?

    I saw one of the boxed sets on eBay a month or so ago. I have seen the individual prints offered for sale also.

            Gary,That set on Ebay was incomplete with six prints only with the portfolio but no box. Dont think they sold?
            How could I overlook Dick with TWO sets !! Good one Dick. You've saved them for future Stude collectors.

                I wonder if anyone has offered reprints of these pictures. I'm not trying to diminish the value of the originals, but I sure would love to have some of those pix.
                Just wondering.
