  • Bowling for Studebaker owners . . .

    I don't think I'd trade MY '56 Champion for a '56 Rambler, but that's just ME I guess . . .

    Notice they both have a "reverse" C-pillar?

    I always thought that this generation of Ramblers looked weird, certainly the Studebaker is more conventional.

    But it's hard to know which would have looked better back in the day...to 1956 eyes and tastes.

        Though the 1957 Stude, was showing some of the flare, like that of
        the 1957 Ch*#y, that would be expanded alittle in 1958, while the
        Rambler, was still showing the "box" look. But yes beauty is/was
        always in the eyes of the beholder!

            It's interesting that the Rambler comparison was posted as Studebaker used to do the dame thing. I recall seeing Stude's comparison to F##d and C!@#Y and other products. Kind of cool to these these things. So thanks for posting it

                I remember those ads well. By the way, Rambler is exceptionally well in the sales dept. that year. Personally, I liked the styling, but I also liked the Studebaker styling too.

                    Yes, the Rambler was offbeat, but in the day it was New, where the Studebaker was seen as a warmed over '53. And that's when New, New, New was in.
