    There is a company that sells what they call a 57 Studebaker President body. That is probably what you saw. Chester and myself had our carts assembled by a friend in Texas. The bodies came from a company in Florida that think may now be out of business as they got into a legal hastle with GM over selling 57 Chevy bodies and not paying the royalty. People down here in AZ tease me because we had the carts built with a trunk and no bag holders. I had mine at the Southwest Zone Meet in Mesa two years ago.

    Hey Mark, here is what the back looks like. A combination of Studebaker Golden Hawk, Chevy and 59 Caddy!

    The company that sells the nose and tail molds has them listed as a Studebaker. It's the golf cart builder that markets and sells it as a Chevy. Most golfers can't tell the difference anyways[}]
    They are being built and sold all over the country...but on a local level.

    While driving on Rt. 1 in Richmond, Virginia today, I spotted some golf carts that looked like 57 Studebakers. One was red and the other was turquoise. I stopped at the business and inquired. I spoke with Mr. Wood and seemed surprised that I thought they were Studebakers. He said they called them 57 Chevys. They sure look like Studebakers to me. He said the price is $6,300.00. ( probably twice the price of a real 57 President when it was new! )

    Looks Studebaker to me. I'd like to see more of the back, but even the fins looks Studebaker.

    Here's a possibility: The legal (read: Royalties) ramifications of making them look any more like "57 Chevys" than they do. Nobody has to pay royalties or worry about legalities if they make something that looks like a 1957 Studebaker, but they'd better not make anything and identify it as "57 Chevy" unless they want to hear from some legal entity representing Generous Motors. Just a thought... BP
