    In my not-so-humble opinion, Studebaker has never gotten its just recognition in the Post War Era even to this day...

      C&K were indeed beauties.....the four doors were ungainly......just didn't look good.

        I absolutely agree with you. The C/K coupes were the prototype for the personal luxury car as personified by the '58-'60 "Square birds" and the '61 & later T-birds that followed. Sad to say, Studebaker didn't realize what they had with those coupes and they failed to market them against the four passenger Thunderbirds as they could have/should have.

          You are exactly right. It's too bad that Vance and Hoffman didn't do what Bourke and Loewy wanted to do - build the sedans on the 120.5" wheelbase of the C/K coupes and share body panels with the coupes. It was a horrible mistake that Studebaker never recovered from. Go here for that story:
