  • Studebakers in Post Cards

    I spent the day scanning my collection of post cards with Studebakers in them and posted them on Webshots. Here is the link:

    This is just mainly my 53 and later collection. I may post the 52 and earlier at another time.

    Here are just a few samples.

    Leonard, thanks--as usual, great photos! I'm partial to the Bordeaux Red '64 convertible near the front of the FBI Building. That thing had to be new or darn close to it! Looks like Paul Johnson's car! I also like seeing a 'lemon lime' Speedster in the showroom of Meehan Motors!

      I showed the Bordeaux Red '64 convertible post card to several people, and they think that since the flag was at half staff, it may have been taken right after Kennedy was killed. The card says that the building is the Senate Office Building.

        I think Leonard is right. This is a picture of the FBI building (but then again, the existing structure may have built since then).

          Thanks for taking the time to share all those with us, Leonard. I looked at all of them. Great stuff! Even saw a two tone Transtar. [^] I've even been to a few of those places! One of particular interest is the one from Holly Hill, FL with a '53 C body. That place isn't very big, and we've got a friend that lives there now that happens to own a C body.

            Great cards and pictures once again, Leonard. I could sit and watch one of your slide shows for a week and probably not make a dent in half of what you have stashed away. Thanks for sharing. I spent the day wrenching, trying to adjust my new hood and cleaning the mess the body shop made of my once clean engine compartment. Pictures like those are inspiring for days like today, much appreciated.

              Is that motel in Holly Hill still there?

                I don't know of it is or not. I emailed the guy that lives there. Hopefully he'll respond.

                  Thank you Leonard for such a wonderful gift. I can not believe such a huge collections of postcard showing a Studebaker just for luck.
                  How have you managed to assemble this collection?

                    Hi Leonard,
                    Thanks for scanning all of these postcards. They are fantastic. I've also been collecting postcards with Studebakers in for some years. I've been thinking about putting up a website with all of them, but the collection has been growing out of hands, so that might never happen.

                      Good observation on the flag at half-mast...I just thought the building looked like the building at the beginning of the old "The FBI" TV show, with Efrem Zimbalist, Jr.! Thanks for correcting me on that!

                          Well I just went out and about to look for the
                          motel in Holly Hill. There were many similar motels
                          along US1 and about half still exist as rent by
                          the week semi dives.Many have been converted to
                          other business use as well. I think that the one
                          in this picture is gone.

                              Leonard,
                              I wanted to take the time to look at all 215 post cards before I wrote. Thank you for posting them. I have maybe 20 street scene post cards and none of mine where shown. There must have been hundreds more out there. I enjoyed the show and will bookmark the page. Thank you for taking the time to post all of them.
